    My new Mudmaster GG-1000 thoughts..........

    Greetings fellow watch nuts........Just acquired my 3rd Mudmaster. Love the design of the case and dial. Kinda wanted the GWG but it's a bit pricey for me currently. This latest GG-1000 has a great strap, maybe a bit stiff compared to the Rangeman and without the bump on the end of the lower strap to keep strapkeeper in place, but still a great textured thick design with an equally cool attachment design which incorporates the two wings which add to the overall wearing comfort. The strap is such in my opinion in keeping with the desired ruggedness of the intended use of this model.......mud n crud n abnormal roughness. The dial legibility while not perfect is pretty darn great. The analog hands are easily read at a glance, The digital LCD's are placed well and are useful as they are intended. My watch's compass, thermometer, and all other functions all operate perfectly and the hands all are spot on with the dial. One of my favorite features of this model are the pushers. They are asthetically pleasing and the crosshatching makes for a easily grasped push everytime. I had the Gulfman at one time and loved the watch until it fogged up on me because of the setup of that models pushers. Basically it minutely leaked air and moisture inside......(I think)........This Mudmaster will never do that.........So, while not diving down 600ft. in the ocean......I do however ski at -40F on top of mountains and am confident this will not fog up......I tested that fact.......
    So........After owning beautiful Omega's and Rolex's and Sinn's......I especially like the G-Shocks as my EDC watch.......As stupid as this sounds....I can drop my Casio on the tiled shower floor and nothing will happen to it.....I can't do that with any of my other 2k watches....... Go figure.......!!
    Love to hear replies.......Kim

    I may pull the trigger on one of these someday. I'm just afraid I'll get tired of the size and be stuck with a $300 dust collector. I've lost enough $$$ on watches, so I try to avoid it. Still, though, it's always in the back of my mind.

    Beautiful piece. I love my GG as well. Very comfortable for its size due to the wrist wings, and I think the dual screen set up is pretty cool looking. Congrats on the pick up.

    Was in my local Maxx two nights ago... No G's at all . Mine seems to very rarely have any. They get more Michael Kors and Fossil than anything.

    I've noticed with TJmaxx..........the higher economy towns get the nicer watches in the stores........like the town with 80k people in it will get a higher end selection of watches than the town with 30k people...........They apparently do their homework...........
