    Best (RELIABLE) place to buy a Mudman G9300GY or the Earth Tone one?

    Well I believe the title says it all.
    Where can one go to buy a G9300GY (Green&Black) Mudman?

    I see one on eBay for $500, lol.
    Why are they so expensive here?

    Is it b/c it is not yet released in N. American Market?

    Firstly you need to understand that there are two version of the smokey grey mudman the non atomic G9300GY and the atomic GW9300GY

    there are only two differences and they are the atomic GW version has multiband 6 and a carbon fiber strap

    most that are around the $500 will be the Atomic GW version. the reason they are expensive is that it was a popular model and production was disrupted by the flooding in thailand etc so I don't think they released as many as planned

    Keep in mind the green and grey watch was a limited edition release which isn't available through retail channels anymore. You can really only get them through private sellers now, and they usually mark them up.

    the gw-9300er is around 360 including shipping if you buy from Japan from the usuals like chino, katsu, seiya and they are reliable. It may even come down in price since the Japanesse market has been getting hit hard so the dollar vs yen may be favorable to us in the states. If you want the non-atomic er then you best bet is ebay or wait until someone sells it in the forum.

    Thanks for all the answers.
    Makes sense now.
    But do you guys think it makes sense to pay extra for GW version b/c of the carbon fiber band and atomic syncing?

    I use the watch to tell time more than my cell phone and I hate when my watches are off by a couple of seconds (I know it is crazy) so that is why I like the atomic function if you dont care about that then dont spend more on it it will only loose like 15 seconds a month anyways. The GW is also solar but eventually you will have to chance batteries on a solar as well. In regards to the carbon fiber band I cant comment as far as comparisons are concerned because I havent tried the regular one, but the one on the GW is comfortable. Also the atomics don't sync everywhere, if your in the US, genereally, it should be fine.

    Earthtone Mudman is the G9300ER-5 aka Men in Military Colors. The "Earthwatch" is the name of the new Love the Sea and Earth GW9300 that will be out the end of June (JDM only)

    i was able to pick up the mudman and riseman earth tone models today for retail price. Look up Tourneau and see if there is one in your area. The usually specialize in high end watches but have a small g-shock section.
