    Need input on purchase, Mudman or gw5600?

    Ok, here is my problem. I got the bug, we all know which one! I want to purchase an atomic/solar G, but I need some advice. I live in NW Indiana and might not leave the U.S. ever. My question is this, is there a benifit to the GWM5600 over the GW5600? The one thing I like about the GWM5600 is that it appears to show the day and date at the same time rather that one at a time like the GW5600 but I already have the DW5600E so I was thinking Mudman GW9000A that is 25% off at the mall today! Any thoughts? Bob

    GWM5600 > GW5600 because
    • date/date
    • 1000 hr chrono
    • multi band 5 (you just don't know when you are going to need it, maybe a trip to europe in the future?)
    • i like the dial layout better (closer to the origin DW5000)
    between GWM5600 and GW9000, it depends what style you like better. they are identical in function. but again, GWM5600 shows date/day in current time mode, while GW9000 only shows date or day. and also depends if you can live with the 5 "eyes" layout or you like the classic 5600 style better.

    for me, if this is my only G, i would go with GWM5600. but let me tell you, the G/GW9000 is one of the most comfortable G out there. and of course, the stardard answer is get them both, cause they are very different

    I own the GW5600J.

    Go with that one because if you already own a DW5600E the GWM5600 will be very uncomfortable in comparison because it's very big.

    As for the day and date not shown at the same-time.

    Yeah, it's kinda of annoying, but all have to is press a button to change it.

    Plus, you get full abbreviations for the days (MON, TUE, WED, THU, FRI, SAT, SUN) instead of (MO, TU, WE, TU, FR, SA, SU) on alot of digital watches.

    As others have said, the GWM5600 is able to receive more signals than the GW5600, plus it has a 'proper' display. But the advantage of the GW5600 is that its display is more legible due to the larger digits. Besides, the color scheme on the GWM5600 is a little too distracting for me.

    Well, personally I'm no fan of the GW-9000A's five eyes, but if you can get it at such a huge discount, then go for it! Just be warned, though: pushing the extra-stiff buttons can take some getting used to.

    Sucks to be without a G.

    I just got back from JC Penny at the mall and they had one GW9000A left that was on clearance for $63 + tax. I personally do not like the looks of the GW9000A because of the 5 eyes on the display. If I were to purchase a Mudman, I would get the GW9010-1 which is much better than the GW9000A. The GW9010-1 is a much newer model and it has more features than the GW9000A like the rally timer and 6 frequencies for the atomic time.
    Get the GW9010-1 if you want to get a solar atomic Mudman. I won one and so far, I love the watch. It also looks much nicer than the older GW9000A.

    I'm facing a similar dilemma. My next watch will be either a Mudman Rally or the gw-m5600. Two really different watches for sure, but a tough decision nonetheless.
