    My 2nd G9G Mudman arrived...

    ...today from Hong Kong (Boris' Seiko5 website...). Very nice watch, it's the black with red buttons version of the "simple" 9000. It'll reside in it's box for a while, because if the Missus knew it would only confirm her thought that I'm gone bonkers...
    I set it up exactly as my cream colored one, exactly same time, too.
    One strange thing: whilst the watch is exactly the same as the cream one, the "feel" of the black wristband seems softer! Any one else noticed a similar phenomenon?

    Hi Pablo -

    Congratulations on your new MUDMAN Always nice to receive a G-Shock in the mail

    I don't have your same black model, but do have the cream and also the GW-9000 model in black, and indeed my black solar band seems softer than the cream..

    The black GW-9000 solar is a Japanese version, and the cream is non Japanese.

    Not sure if this has anything to do with it, or if the Japanese prefer softer bands

    Thanks Ozzie, you're always on the double encouraging G-People

    Both my G9G's are "St.steel back Thailand mov't y cased in Japan", so the difference -if any- would not be attributable to that.

    Maybe there's just something about "black" color mix in resin being "softer" than "cream", I dunno...

    OT-
    Ever notice how (many, maybe not Ferrari or Porsche) red cars have their lacquer fade much faster than other colors? Many (many!) red automobiles look real sorry over here, some of the cheaper cars have their red color incredibly faded, completely oxydized.

    Not that I expect your red jelly watches will ever just ...fade away!

    Hi Flamenco man

    I don't think any of the new MUDMAN's are made in Japan. Mine are also made in Thailand.

    The GW-9000 solar is a 20bar where as my cream is a 200m model.

    Many JA models have the 20bar and the non JA models have 200m.

    JA models are not all made in Japan. I think many G-Shocker's get confused about this.

    That's a good point about the resin colour affecting the softness.. Not sure

    I guess we would need a scientist to conduct tests.

    Maybe "Solar G-Shocker" member can help us out as he is a chemistry teacher

    I have seen the cheaper model red cars paint fade. Mainly the Korean HYUNDAI and DAEWOO.. I guess maybe they use a cheaper paint:-S

    Anyway, enjoy your new MUDMAN.. Certainly plenty of threads about it and don't forget to vote on the poll..

    Looks like the GW-9000 is doing well, although we could do with some more reviews about the good and bad points:thanks
