    2 New mudmen

    From IVSHC the ebay seller 2 mudmen arrived this morning.

    I have made a little photo stream to show 1) how it is packaged to avoid customs and 2) how the watchs themselves look.

    Here's how it arrived to the door, cleverly made to look very "gift like".


    Now a sequence of opening shots with a closed leatherman wave for scale.








    Now the two watches.
    First the black one...






    Now the beige one...






    Now both watches on the wrist...




    And finally on a rudimentary display made from an ikea trivet and a pair of cup hooks...


    Here almost concludes my post BUT: setting the time since these are the G-9000-1VDR not the G-9000-(European suffix here) is there any way to make them think they are GMT not UTC because if I can't then World time settings are useless unless I move to America!

    I have work later where i will test one of these, which one should I wear? They seem robust and comfortable but only a good smashing about at work will tell.

    Also are they genuine?

    GMT and UTC is the same time.
    I used to list my watches here until I realised it ruined people's Google searches...

    Great looking Gs.

    "Vinyl Toy"?? Hahaha. I think I'd be embarrassed to accept that package.

    Got it, was being stoopid! It was set at UTC +1.0 but all is dandy now.

    When mine arrived- in similar wrapping my Postman knocked the door and said with a big Grin "ordered something for the wife then?"

    Mighty, even worse is that it was sent home to my mum and not up to uni. I wondered how long it would be before someone pulled me up on that.

    As for my worries, are they genuine? Came in boxes with tags etc but just need reassuring...
