    Cream G-9000-8VDR Muddie arrived!

    Today 09:34 FedEx delivered my first Muddie...which I had ordered in Singapore less than 2 days ago.
    It flew Singapore-Subic Bay-Shanghai-Frankfurt-Brussels-Antwerp (delivery).
    Incredible...
    Nice watch...big.. B-)

    Wow, that's 5 minutes ago. You have probably the nearest Cream Muddie there is :-D Indeed, the FedEx delivery is amazing fast here. You are gonna love it I think (well, it's by far my favorite new Mudman model).

    Cheers,

    Sjors

    I've just finished setting the time, zones, dst, world time (to UTC, i.e. RAI without dst option).
    Right hand tip-of-thumb numb from pressing those buttons...
    Nice watch...

    If you set it the correct time (DST-on, UTC+2) it will probably only need slight adjust for the seconds

    Thanks Sjors, it's set OK - one of my other hobbies is short wave listening (r-a-d-i-o, you know, one of those electric machines with -in the best of cases- a voice coming out of it, and a lot of whistling sounds...) and I know the meaning of UTC, GMT, "Z" (for "Zulu").

    Also, ship captains report everything in zulu (not the language; the time, I mean :-D ) adding the deviation from GMT in same message, it is in fact an obligation on board of ships to, about every two days or so (depends on the speed and bearing of the ship!), write in the daily logbook "noon time report", "set clock back 1 hour" (or "forward 1 hour", if sailing eastward). Sometimes, when sailing direction Australia, the ship all of a sudden loses a day! That's because of crossing the "international date line"... wreaks havoc when calculating "distance/speed/24" = "X" days and the ship in fact arrives on a date exactly 24 hours later than "calculated"...

    and -naturellement- I use the 24 hour format.

    In fact, I set my G after to the second after first having Googled for "exact time" (used the Greenwich Mean Time website).

    I set it as "Local zone = GMT +1", DST "on" (making it Z+2 for the summer), and I set world time to GMT/UTC, which is city code "RAI" (DST off, because GMT is and always remains Z).

    I bought it at http://www.superchrono.com/
    Incredibly fast service, maybe not the absolute best prices, but direct, fast, reliable...

    I had, previously, ordered a G-7300-1VER in Germany, yesterday they sent me an email advising the watch could not be obtained; I immediately cancelled the order, because I have some second thoughts about that watch, it's a very "civilized" tough solar with CTL-1616 battery (and my wife would not like me buying 2 watches in one week).

    The Superchrono website has some very nice stuff!!! If I hadn't emptied my G-Shock budget a couple days ago, I'd be ordering up a red jelly Baby-G Frogman for the wife.
