First of all hello! Although not completely new to G-Shocks (I’ve already got 7, with a G9000MX-8 on its way!), I’m new to the forum and have a question that I really can’t seem to find an answer for:
Given that the G9000 Mudman and G9100 Gulfman both have fairly similar functions, have the ‘Dual Illuminator’ feature and use a CR2025 battery, why does the Mudman have a rated battery life of 3 years compared to the 7 years of the Gulfman?
I find it hard to imagine, but are the 2x 1000 hour stopwatches on the Mudman a real drain on battery power? Unless I’m missing something, I really can’t think of any other reason to account for this large difference.
