    Rangeman analog equivalent

    What's an analog version of Rangeman 9400? I'm looking for the value and features of my Rangeman, but with an easier to read face.

    Atomic and solar are key.

    I'm guessing Mudmaster, although I'm looking for a similar price range as Rangeman.

    Gravity Master or Gulf Master maybe.

    Re: Rangeman analog equivalent

    As I dig into the lineup, it's becoming apparent that if I'm going to spend nearly $400 on Gulfmaster, I may as well bump up to Mudmaster GWG1000 for a little over $500. Thoughts?

    If you don't need the moon and tide data of the Gulfmaster GWN-1000, and don't mind spending a bit more, the Mudmaster GWG-1000 may be a better bet. Compared to the GWN-1000, the GWG-1000 adds a sapphire crystal and a front-mounted light button.

    I think it's becoming a no-brainer. It's something I'd wear every day and has the functionality and durability I want. Didn't these used to be about $700? $530 isn't chump change, but it's a pretty good deal for this kind of wearable tech.

    I think some GWG-1000 models have been available in the $500-$550 price range for a while.

    You don't waste time, do you? You asked the question an hour ago, and 1/2 hour later your mind is nearly made up?

    Technically the GWG-1000 is not the analog equivalent of the Rangeman. First, it's a step up in quality. But, it's also not nearly as feature-packed as the Rangeman. And it's twice the price.

    The closest match to the GW-9400 in analog form IMO is the GWN-1000 Gulfmaster. It's a great watch, full of features, and you should be able to find one at 1/2 the price of the Mudmaster. I've owned 1/2 dozen or more of them and they are very nice. True, no sapphire crystal - but again, you should be able to find one in the $200 range.

    I know, I know!

    Like a rookie, I started digging after asking the question... My apologies!

    I think you are spot on in your assessment. The Gulfmaster has all the features, and the Mudmaster has the two main ones I want- atomic and solar. I can't go wrong with either Gulfmaster or Mudmaster. It just comes down to money. With the Rangeman in the stable, the Mudmaster probably makes the most sense.

    You'll do what you want naturally, but the best bang-for-the-buck between the GWN-1000 and GWG-1000 is the Gulfmaster. (Just as it is with the GW-9400 in digital form)

    I just did a quick search for the GWN-1000 on ebay and a yellow and blue one are available for around $280. The original retail price of the GWN-1000 was somewhere around $450 or $500. Some of the prices are still high, only because they are starting to become scarce now to some extent - depending on the colorway of the watch.
