Well guys, shortly after I got the 1000-1A9 Mudmaster, I ordered the black strap from the 1000-1AJF version from pacparts. Kind of like when I ordered a replacement strap for my GPW-1000RAF, it took forever....and ever. I called about it in mid-December, and they told me it was on backorder. (duh!) Said it would take another 6-8 weeks.... Well I was going to give it another week or so from now, and then cancel the order. But lo and behold, only a little over 4 months after placing my original order, it arrived!!
I like the all-black look, which will be a little more versatile than when the watch is on the yellow strap. The new black strap feels great right out of the package. And now this watch looks and feels like a piece of tactical gear! (not that I'm into tactics, anymore! hehe)
I must admit though, I'm still eyeing the 1000-1A3 version... I like its differently accented dial, and the green strap. And I don't feel like waiting another 4 months for a green strap! I have some Amazon gift cards coming soon, soooooo......the 1A3 might be next in my sights! LOL
Here's the new Muddie:
