    G9000 mudman

    Hey guys,
    I recently purchased a G9000 mudman the black positive with red buttons, and I noticed that the WR label on it is different than others it says "water 200m resist" while some other mudmans say "water 20bar resist"
    I know its the same value but just wondering why the difference.
    Also i got the alarm duration of 20sec while some amazon reviews were saying it's 10sec, can anybody confirm that?

    Regards,

    According to this thread (and I thought some others that I've read but can't find now) it's because the watches are destined for different markets: https://forums.watchuseek.com/f17/goo...nce-33631.html

    ...much like the "difference" between Foxfire and Illuminator!

    Most of the gshocks today have 20bar marking... in 90s with DW-5600c it was quite noticable, 5600c-1v for the stores around the world were water 200m resist and there then were then 5600c-1 with water 20bar resist. Such small diffrence, but true collectors want both in the collections

    Whenever there is 20bar water resist marking on modern g-shocks, like King for example, I personally get a bit of that vintage feel to it

    Mine says "water 200m resist" and I bought it at Kohls. By the way....you will LOVE the watch. To me it is in the top 5 in MANLY G's.

    Indeed it is a great watch, the module is very useful to me, it is comfortable to me also despite the little bumps on the back.
