    ***** REPORTING THREAD for GWG-1000 MUDMASTER "STUCK" SECOND HAND issues....!! ****

    Some of us thought it would be a good idea to document in one thread the forum users who have had trouble with the second hand "freezing" on their GWG-1000 Mudmasters. We'd like to get a better sense of how many problems have occurred with Mudmasters owned by forum members. So here we go!!

    If you have, or have had, that problem, here's what to do:

    1) be sure you have added your Mudmaster(s) to the "Counting" thread, here: https://forums.watchuseek.com/f17/mud...d-2239425.html

    2) Make a post in this thread describing your Mudmaster's problem. Let's use this thread JUST for the "second hand freezing" issues. Any other Mudmaster problems you have can be mentioned in a separate thread.

    3) (Ideally) Please ALSO list your Mudmaster's "batch number," and place of assembly. (from the case back) The batch number will look something like: 201C183F. The case back will also indicate "Japan H" if assembled in Japan, or "Japan move'mnt Cased in Thailand." Please let us know where yours was assembled.


    I did a Google search to try and find previous posts/threads on this issue. There might be more, but I've only found 6 users mentioning this problem:



    If any of the members listed above have not yet listed your GWG-1000 in Piowa's Counting Thread (linked above), please do so!!

    Thanks!!

    Thanks. I don't think there will be a huge number of people posting here, so the thread should not require much if any upkeep.

    What would probably be most helpful is if you and anyone else could direct people to this thread, if you happen to see a new thread or post in the forum on this issue...

    Just look a Time4's opening thread.
    Do you think notes would be taken if a young G Shock staffer was cruising our Forum...

    Not that it pertains directly to this Mudmaster thread, but this seems to be an occasional issue with various Tough Movement watches. I've seen threads about stuck second hands on the GPW-1000, GWN-1000 and others. It's possible that there are some common parts between various models, for example the second hand motor, that are causing the issue.

    Likely a second hand motor matter.
    I wonder if Casio employs (or should employ) a different servo motor for the second hand. This motor gets more ware than any other motor on the watch.

    thats what i was thinking, you could be pretty sure that the gwn and gwg share the bulk of similar internals for their modules. maybe expand the title to cover those as well and just make sure ppl label the title of their reply with their respective model to help track them all?

    Re: ***** REPORTING THREAD for GWG-1000 MUDMASTER "STUCK" SECOND HAND issues....!! ****

    I still think Casio should offer a better warranty on these Tough Movement watches, say 3 or 5 years, since these designs are supposed to be superior to cheaper ana-digis and supposed to reflect advanced technology. There is no reason that an owner should have to pay hundreds of dollars to fix a problem like this (normally by a total module replacement), especially when it happens right after the (short) warranty is up.

    To those who have multiple Tough Movement watches with no such issues, congratulations. To those who have had issues, I understand why you would be upset and why you wouldn't want to plunk down several hundred dollars to take a chance on another one. It just seems like a basic design requirement that the second hand on a quartz watch should keep running for 10 or 20 years or more. Maybe Casio needs to have a special accommodation to owners who experience such an issue.
