    iraq gift?

    so my good friend is going to iraq for his 2nd tour soon. I was thinking he should have a nice watch while he is in the big sandbox! i was thinking either a mudman or maybe a cool tough diver like the seiko monster? i know 2 totally different ideas but what do you guys think? i would like it to be less than 200 bucks!
    thanks

    The Monster might be distractingly bulky. Any standard G-Shock should be fine, and the Mudman would be a good choice.

    I agree that the Mudman would be a great choice.

    Going with firsthand experience, a mudman is a good watch that will minimize the amount of dust that gets inside the outer case. That said, if the budget is 200 or less, a Pathfinder is a fine choice as well. Since there is no atomic signal there, it doesnt have to be an atomic model. I personally wore my 1200 and my orange monster, although I hung up my monster towards the end as it now gains nearly 1 minute per day! I also had a DB Frog that I wore as well, but oddly only the british guys would ask it it was actually real (there are lots of fake frogs for sale over there. ) If I were going back again, it would definitely be a 1500 and a riseman or mudman. Its nice having a compass handy if you are getting dropped off a bird in the middle of nowhere, and need to quickly find a bearing!

    I'd buy him a Mudman. I always wonder how the sand would do with the bezel on the 007.

    Straight basic 6900 or 6600. Something big that if trashed is not a biggie.

    Speaking of, I need a new bezel and strap for my 6900.....

    That's rather surprises me, I must say. G-Shocks don't have a particularly high profile in Britain, and I wouldn't expect many people outside our kind of circle to have heard of the Frogman.

    The fakes would be ebay fakes, I imagine, because I've never seen any kind of Frogman in Britain (although I think the Carnaby Street Casio boutique sometimes has them).
