    Going on fieldwork to a peat bog tomorrow...What to wear?

    I have a GW-5500, a GW-M5600 in yellow and two G-9000 mudmen. One beige and one black.

    I think I know what si most appropriate but would appreciate opinions.

    Kind regards,

    Fred

    This is why you should have got the Bogman...

    ...I suppose the Mudman will be just satisfactory though.

    I think you should wear some clothes also and of course the mudman.

    The Stormtroopers stain easily. I'd wear black. Or hire a kid to do the work.

    Wellies...


    And bright orange gloves so you'll still be visible if you sink into the goop...



    Sorry, can't help it, but thinking what archaeologists of the future might think of a prefectly preserved person found in a peatbog (like Tollund man) wearing a G-Shock. Would they be going, "Hey, is that the MIRB edition...?"

    I would wear a black G. Peat bogs are so rich in tannic acid which will stain coloured/light watches.

    I wore a black mudman BUT there is plenty of oportunity to try and ruin watches this year as I will be going back there a few times.

    I will get photos if appropriate as today was pretty clean really.
