The 21st century MUDMAN is here and is proving very popular for some, although not all:-D
I purchased a G-9000 in cream, and a green with negative display.
I thought the price was reasonable, and the watches themselves were adequate in relation to price. They are a nice little model, but do not do anything for me as far as a WOW factor and I can take them or leave them.
I could in no way compare them to the ORIGINAL MUDMAN as they appear, at least to me to be totally different and nothing like the original MUDMAN:-S
I do have hundreds of G-Shock's, and I have never been a big MUDMAN fan, except the yellow which I like, more because of the colour plus size
The REAL BLACK MUDMAN looks great on the photos for me, but in real life, I find it's dipslay rather "BLACK" and difficult to read in daylight, and the backlight is a must for that model. For me it's a MUST HAVE for any REAL collection. (I'll take the RB FROGMAN instead)
I didn't purchase the GW-9000 solar as besides not being a fan of BLACK G-SHOCK'S, the ATOMIC feature is not important for me, and the five eyes just look out of place, toppled in with the smaller size.
I'm sure however it is a FANTASTIC watch because it is a G-SHOCK, and the price fits it's many features
I use my watches for time and date only and love the character backlight, simply as a novelty factor
I like my G-Shock's as big as possible, and colours also play a big part in my decision for personal choice.
So what's your opinion on the new "MUDMAN" compared with the ORIGINAL and which would you choose if you had the choice?B-)
