Good day gents.
I am looking to purchase my first G-Shock. I am leaning towards the basic Mudman (G9000-1V) at this point in time after reading the forums.
These are the requirements I have for the watch:
Interval timer (workouts, etc) that repeats
Waterproof for swimming, fishing, boating
Easy to read
To add the twist, I am contemplating a move to New Zealand. I would be using the watch for the same things there but don't think moving up to a Atomic Solar would be worth it as there is no atomic signal there (as far as I can find out).
Does the solar add to the Mudman or does it really matter with the length of time the batteries usually last for? Can I get a signal for the atomic function in NZ?
If so I would buy the Atomic Solar Mudman (GW9000A-1).
I don't think a tide function would be functional in NZ as they have some odd tides that are hard to predict for the most part so the Gulfman is down the list quite a ways (though all bets are off if I can get a LNIB Orange Gulfman for a decent price).
