    Back to G-Town!

    After wearing mostly auto divers and pilot chronos (and a few Timex here and there for the light and cheap niche) for the past several years, I've finally come back to G-Shock territory with the good ol' Mudman.
    I haven't owned a G-Shock in almost 15 years. This Muddy is my second. My first was a DW-9052, which after surviving several ocean dives to 100ft, and some fairly rough day-to-day wear, it died a slow death after a little salt water intrusion when some crud got lodged under the front pusher during a rough night at low tide in Tumon Bay.
    Anyway, I was getting a little bored of always being concerned about banging up my steel watches, so I decided to go back to good old affordable plastic and quartz for a little while. My wife was nice enough to entertain my sickness, and provided me with the standard red-buttoned G9000 Mudman as a birthday gift.
    Diggin it so far. Its comfy, I like the looks, and it seems ready for "stuff". Immediately implemented the DIY strap keeper keeper using a link from a key-ring, as I read about on WUS. Anyway, its doing good so far. Nice to have a G in the rotation again.
    Cheers!

    I read your other post, that's awesome.
    I think mine is safe from being commandeered by my wife. As she handed it to me, she said, "Happy Birthday...you have a problem with watches."
    To which I replied, "....Yes".

    I like that orange button version, by the way.

    Grover38, Your wife sounds just like mine. I don't know what it is about women and watches.

    Its nature's way of keeping us from driving ourselves into the poor house.

    Nice! I'm curious about the strap keeper keeper modification. I like how legible your watch's display is.

    Re: Back to G-Town!

    The strap keeper keeper is pretty clever. Credit goes to another WUS member, although I can't remember exactly who, or how I came across it.
    Anyway, the idea is to stop the strap keeper from sliding around. This especially good for tiny wristed folks like myself. Timex does a good job of building this in to some of their straps, and I love it.
    The "mod" takes advantage of the two-hole design of the strap, and the slit in the strap keeper itself (thanks, Casio!). You can use a small piece of wire or something similar, but I happened to have a small key-chain tape measure with oval shaped links in the key chain which were the perfect shape and size. I stole one, and simply put it on the strap, in the last holes (see pics). So that's just enough material that it protudes into the slit in the keeper, and keeps it in place. Strap keeper keeper! Works great!
