It arrived in 5 days!! Quick delivery on this. So far so good, aside from the major mistakes in the design. Is that enough to put you off?

The build quality on those Tactical Frogs looks pretty good, just in a quick video anyhow. But to make a dive watch with a stationary dive bezel?

The last watch is interesting. The domed crystal into the bezel is a nice look, but I'm not sure the Omega lug shape works here.

The bezel oversight flaw not having the depth rating is being fixed.

Pretty impressive that Tactical Frog is already correcting the bezels to include an ND dive time option. Not that I would trust my life to it while diving...

After a week on wrist....thoughts....I Like it. While the watch in FUNDAMENTALLY flawed, it can still be enjoyed as a fun and vibrant homage. The build quality is more than acceptable at the price point and the color selection is all you need!

Comparison review link https://www.doxa300t.com/froggy/froggy.htm

In England there is an expresion: you wait all day for a bus and then two come along at the same time. I guess it is the same for Doxa SUB homages. For almost 20 years there was nothing. Doxa pretty much had the playing field to itself. The SUB was a watch that Cussler fans and the dive watch cogniscenti knew about but it really wasn't that well known. Now with the end of the Marei era and the new management trying to take the brand more mainstream, two clones have arrived in quick succession. First were the Maranez Samui versions of the SUB 300T and SUB 300 which I reviewed here: Samui 1st and 2nd Generations and here: Samui 3rd Generation. Now comes the wonderfuly named: Tactical Frog.

very interesting bezel
raised bezel "shields" wavy gravy bezel...triangle @ 12 on the dial... chinese original designs... something different

original design less "safe" to ring the register...homage a safer ka-ching
