    New Gulfman vs. Trusty Mudman

    I just bought a Gulfman (G9100-1) to act as wingman to my “cylon” Mudman (GW9010-1).

    Quick compare and contrast:

    GULFMAN PROS
    • Slightly bigger than the Mudman, so it fills out my 6.5” wrist a little better
    • Titanium makes it extremely lightweight
    • Tide feature very cool and accurate enough
    • Buttons easy to press and pleasure to use
    • Strap length is just right
    • Very nice styling
    • A steal at $75

    CONS
    • Moon phase is so small it’s practically unusable.
    • Strap isn’t the most comfortable
    • The “G” doesn’t activate the light or anything else
    • Illumination washes out display a bit
    • Buckle feels a little flimsy
    • No solar or atomic at this price point

    MUDMAN PROS
    • Large time display
    • Very comfortable
    • Great styling
    • Illumination doesn’t wash out display
    • Solid-as-hell buckle
    • Atomic and solar for only $100

    CONS
    • Tough buttons
    • Wears just a bit small
    • Strap length was a little long. Required a trim.

    Which do I like better? Have to say the Mudman edges out the Gulfman, but both are great.

    Always liked the look of the Gulfman, especially with the titanium. To bad there's so many, and significant, cons.

    My problem with this specific Gulfman is the strap digs into the wrist in an annoying way.
    Glad I do not have it anymore

    Well, the GW-9110 Gulfman corrects four of the cons, but it still has the small moon phase graphic and the 4-button interface.

    I was pretty sure there was a GW version of this Watch, but I thought the comments on the strap/buckle problematic.
    Now is that a bracelet I see ?

    My understanding is that the strap on the GW-9100 (the "Revolver") is rather stiff and uncomfortable for some. The GW-9110 uses the more flexible strap from the GW-9200 Riseman. My GW-9110-1 is on the stock strap, which has a very nice buckle (apparently titanium).

    Also, the GW-9200 strap can be used on the GW-9100 to make the latter more comfortable.

    60 min cdt of the Mudman is to me the biggest con and overules any cons of the Gulfman by far.

    The GW-9010 has a 24 hour CDT, the same as the GW-M850, which shares a similar module with the rally timer.
