    Mudmaster gwg1000 vs Frogman D1000 as the only daily watch

    Hi since i only own the Frogman and LOVE it..
    also started to like the Mudmaster.
    Since i can only afford one, I'm considering the Mudmaster instead because it looks amazing and it's HUGE and i like big watches.
    this version especially

    The Mudmaster is great, I own 3 of them. It is a quality G, no doubt. However, the D1000 Frogman is a step above, IMO.

    Keep your Frogman. You'd be taking a (small) step backwards by going for the Mudmaster instead.

    That's my initial thought. Buuuuuuuut........unless you are a diver, all of the special features of the D1000 Frog are not very useful. I'm not a diver, but to me the D1000 is special due to its quality materials and construction, and appearance. The Mudmaster adds the altimeter, and barometer, that the Frog does not have. When I wear the MM, I make use of the Baro frequently - at least the baro graph. And aside from functions, the MM is a beautiful watch as well, and the dial (to me) is more interesting than the Frog's due to its depth and design.

    The MM does have a sapphire crystal, like the Frog. The Frog's strap is nicer, being carbon fiber. As we know the Frog's case is SS, unlike how the MM is constructed. And maybe important to some folks, the Frog is likely to be at least somewhat tougher/more reliable given its all-digital nature vs. the MM's ana-digi movement.

    I can see where it could be a tough decision. If I had to own only one, it would probably still be the Frog, even though its functions are slightly less useful to me than those of the MM. The Frog just has such an outstanding design and build, not to mention awesome look, that I can't ignore it.

    I have both, and am fortunate. Quality wise the Frogman is a more substantial Watch than all other G Shocks by virtue of its construction. The GWG is nonethess a Watch of high caliber and does have more to offer the user above the simplicity of the Frogman. Hard choice, I agree.

    Gotta agree.

    I have both. I wear both.

    The frog is a better quality piece I think.

    Actually I've always been an analog Watch guy, but I do love to wear my Frogman. I thi nk it is a very special and unique Watch.

    I personally find the MM have better fit on the wrist and better overall functionality.

    Have both as well. Lug strength is huge for me as I'm in the gym 14-21+ hours per week and the lugs on the D are ridiculous (in a good way). I also like a heavy, or heavier, watch and the Frog is 20 or 21 grams heavier than the Mudmaster is I remember correctly.

    KEEP YOUR FROG!!!

    Loved my MM but found it a little large and didn't like te crown function as I had to take it off to use features, apart from that little niggle it was uber cool. Now I'm after a mudman. but will miss the sapphire crystal.
