    g for desert

    I am geophysics engineer. Recently I had job interwiev in company witch is independent geophysical contractor performing services in oil, water, mineral etc. exploration. They have international contracts, and projects and they are courently working in Egypt and Libya. It is most likely that I would have to go there. Which g-shok would you choose for job like that? I'm thinking about g900 mudman, because is mud and also dust resistant, and terrain work areas are in the desert.
    Please make your suggestions.

    Mudman sounds like a good choice to me.

    I'd go a Mudman too, i still haven't posted pics of mine yet (i'll do that shortly), but i like it. Tough watch, and looks nice and they are really cheap. So if you lose it, or it dies (unlikely) then you won't worry too much.

    I'd say go for a storm trooper grey or black. Seeing as they can be worn casually too, i've got a green and it's not really suitable for daily wear (stands out alot).

    I would choose black, but the problem ist that in here in Croatia they are out of them. They got only red ones and green ones and black atomic solar mudman. Maybe I should get atomic solar? But the regular mudman has nicer display. I don't like that 5 eyes very much, and there is no place for date and day at the same time. Or am I wrong?

    Hmmm, I think that available red don't have that TLC logo. It's just ordinary red mudman. I'll check that soon.

    Have a look, and there are some good cheap sellers on eBay who will ship to Europe.

    Red might be nice, you definitely won't lose it.
