The G6900-GR3 is part of the new Casio G-shock Green Series collection. I don’t know how ‘limited’ it is, but I do think it is ‘limited edition’. You still can get it at watch shops, or at Sungei Wang as off now. Going price will be around RM300 ~ RM320, do not get ripped off!!

The green color used here is exactly same as the Frogman Love The Sea and Earth (model #GW-200F-3JR, note ‘3’, denominating the green color) edition, popularly dubbed the ‘Kermit‘ by many G-shock enthusiasts.

The GW-200Z is the final edition in the GW-200 series, thus being coined the nickname “The Final Frogman“. Caged in a titanium housing, it is anti-rust and is 200 meters water resistant.

Just got this in recently. The watch shops in Malaysia, both the official Marco and unofficial distributors are stocking them, so hurry and get yours before they all run out. Shops in Sungei Wang received from 3 – 5 units each, not sure if they can order more, so quickly get them while they are still on display.

Casio Protrek PRG-130

The Casio Protrek PRG-130 (or PRW-130 with atomic sync, PAW1500 in USA) is a ABC watch, meaning that it comes with altimeter, barometer and compass readings. When showing the barometer (air pressure), it also shows the temperature. It comes in a nice brown box (outer box is a cardboard box, and inside is a wooden panel box) with a very thick manual. The model number for this one is PRG-130-1VDR (more info here: ).

Besides the standard timekeeping, alarm and stop watch features, it also has a tide and moon graph. Not to mention that the battery is recharged using the solar cells on the face of the watch. On the “home” screen, you can set the top display to either display a 24 hour barometer graph (data captured and saved every 2 hours) or a day (MON/TUE) display, toggled by using the Adjust button.
