    Questions about Rangeman vs Gulfmaster!

    Hi everyone,
    I'm new to this forum and new to G-Shock watches.

    Been looking a while for an ABC watch and came across G-Shock watches.

    Have a few quetsions, hopefully someone can help, i've tried doing my own research on the net but can't seem to find much. Just watch a lot of youtube vids and reviews etc to help find things out.

    Is there much difference between the Rangeman and the Gulfmaster?
    I know the Gulfmaster is analog as well, and looks slightly diff, but is there much difference?

    I'm more interested in performance difference, such as the Altimeter, does it show you above sea level for each and then if its in altitude mode will keep refreshing every few seconds?

    The only difference I could find as far as features go is the Rangeman has sunrise/sunset whereas the Gulfmaster has Moon? What does the moon function exactly do or what can it tell me?

    Just really unsure which one to get between the two, or maybe there is another model I haven't really seen!

    For myself it will be my daily.

    I do a fair bit of dirt bike riding in the bush, along with also hunting, camping, hiking etc.

    Re: Questions about Rangeman vs Gulfmaster!

    Thats a valid and interesting question!

    I'll be happy to share some of my experiences with these two watches who, due to my outdoor activities rank up right as my favorites in the collection...
    Will have to do this later, though, as it is middle of the night here in Europe now. I'll try and come back though, for now let me feed you some visual inspiration.
    These are both great and great-looking watches!!

    Did you take those pics yourself? Love the 2nd photo, with the top of the mountains poking through the clouds...

    Re: Questions about Rangeman vs Gulfmaster!

    Have both as well, and it is a difficult choice which I avoided by choosing both. IMO the decision is made easier by the fact that the only positive screen Gulfmaster is the JDM Blue version. The other negative screens are harder to read in some light conditions.

    So, if you don't want to chase down a blue Gulfmaster from Japan, get a positive Rangeman. The blue goes for nearly double what a yellow can be bought for.

    3 modified to positive screen Rangeman, Navy, Green and Red come negative in stock form.
    Black, Grey and yellow come positive from Casio. Actually Black is available both ways.

    Yellow, green and Grey are out of production, but still widely available. Navy may soon be out of production as well.

    Have both, i prefer the alti on rangeman because it you can reset the reference altitude easily and shows the height in every meter. Gulfmaster is harder to see and the second hand shows in either 10 or 100m difference.

    There used to be a neat Youtube video of the Rangeman with 2 guys in a car driving up a mountain, and the Rangeman altitude increasing and agreeing with the road markers all the way up the hill.

    Cannot find the video anymore.
