    Any other conversion but the one on BroadArrow?

    A buddy of mine just bought a GW9000A-1 and is looking to (eventually) do a NATO/Zulu conversion. I saw the broadarrow.net conversion kit, but I was wondering if there are any other conversions out there. It says the kit won't work with four ring NATO straps.

    Any thoughts?

    I know you guys probably all know the watch, but here's a stock photo for reference:

    How did it get so late so soon?

    The standard adaptors won't work on the Mudman. But the Suunto clips will. Just do a little forum search for Mudman+suunto clips or Mudman+nato/zulu - you'll find lots of threads about custom strap jobs on the Mudman.

    Found an older thread where I already listed some of the best conversions:

    Lifesaver, you are. You've also got me wanting a G-Shock myself. Or a Suunto.

    The Suunto clip mod looks really perfect for it.

    Hey Sedi, any idea why most conversions are 5 ring Zulus and not 4 ring NATOs? What is it about the NATO strap that makes it not work as well as the Zulu?

    Not really sure. Maybe people just like the Zulus more. But it could also be that on the Zulus the rings are further apart which makes the adapters fit better. I'd prefer a 2 ring Zulu anyway. The additional rings can make the watch sit awkward on the wrist - especially when using the standard Casio adapters.

    The space for the watch head with NATOs?

    Is that due to case size or design?

    Case size of G-Shocks, design of the NATO.
