    Can't Decide Between GW9000A-1 & GW6900-1

    I just gifted my G9000-1V Mudman to my brother for his birthday, so now I am G-less and on the hunt for a replacement. I have $100 to spend, and am wanting a solar atomic G this time around.

    I am debating between the GW9000A-1 and the GW6900-1. Both are about the same size, are relatively stealthy, and seem easy to read - all qualities I am looking for. Unfortunately I don't have the money for both (the easy solution), and I'm not patient enough to wait and save up for what I'd really like - a Men in Matte Black Riseman or Mudman.

    What to do, what to do...

    Thanks for "listening."

    I've always been a huge fan of the design of the GW-9000, but it is an old module now. You will find the GW-6900 offers vastly improved Waveceptor reception.

    +1 for the GW-6900

    Pros - it's bigger! Its sits a bit wider across the wrist than the Mudman
    its' heavier! Feels closer to a Frog weight than Mudman.
    better module! clearer screen in my opinion. And date and day can both be displayed on home screen.
    Multiband 6! Anecdotally, there is better reception.
    Better band! Similar lengths, but 6900 is softer.

    Cons - it's bigger and heavier! Not a con for me...
    Nothing else really.

    Another vote for the GW-6900. I don't have a Mudman but I love this watch.

    My opinion is, three eyes are easier to look at than five.

    Plus, the GW-9000 only receives 5 signals. But if you want Multi Band 6 in a Mudman package, go for the GW-9010, a much better-looking solar/atomic Mudman IMO.

    Sucks to be without a G.

    Re: Can't Decide Between GW9000A-1 & GW6900-1

    Thanks much for your opinions so far. Question - I assume the bezel of the GW6900-1 can be removed easily like on the Mudman? I ask because I will probably want to remove the paint from the lettering on the bezel, for a more stealthy look. I did this on my G9000 Mudman and would like to do it with either of the two modelsw I am debating on currently.

    Thanks!

    The GW6900 is on my short list. That Mudman is not. I'm on the fence with the 9010 Mudman but will probably pass once I get the GW6900.

    It looks as if it can be removed as easily - four screws and it should pop off.

    Honestly, the 6900 feels like a proper G-Shock. The Mudman just looks a bit fussy for my tastes.
