    Rangeman, Gulfmaster or GX-56?

    Which would you get, (assuming I can find a GX-56 anywhere)

    I like all 3, found a Gulfmaster for £250, a rangeman for anywhere between £199 and £240 and the GX56 for £135 assuming it's a genuine one on ebay

    the rangeman is topping the list at the moment as it's huge and has loads of features, but the GX is cheaper and you won't be able to find them for much longer and the gulfmaster I like because I just like analogue watches a bit more than digital

    Re: Rangeman, Gulfmaster or GX-56?

    For functions: Rangeman or Gulfmaster
    For style: Gulfmaster
    For size and comfort: Rangeman
    For your best: get them Both! I have GX-56 and see no use in it as it doesnt fit me plus has no functions worth mentioning. But you may be different. It can in no case replace one of the two others, so then my answer would be, you guessed it: all three. But for THAt answer you didnt need to open the thread..

    So, if style is major consideration, Gulfy wins:

    If you're after the functions, Rangeman is the most practical one, and (although there will be a dicussion, because there is never an agreement on that in this forum) in that case get a positive version:

    personally, as a Gshock fan, I never care about the analog, no matter how much it cost nor what features it has

    so it come down to the rangeman vs. King

    I don't own rangeman nor plan to get one as I don't like the screws all around the bezel, and it looks just like the 3 riseman I have

    and I have 4 kings

    The GX-56 is cool and all, yes, I have two of them. But it doesn't come close to the other two for functions. My recommendation would be to go for the Rangeman or Gulfmaster. You can't go wrong with either. If analog is your preference, then it sounds like the Gulfmaster would win, for you. And a great choice it would be! Pick your favorite color combo among them and go for it!

    I don't own a Gulfmaster, but both GW-9400 and GX-56... I shot some quick comparison pics. My wrist is 6.7"

    functionwise, I prefer the Rangeman (I like the atomic synching and the sunrise/sunset funtion the most) and it's better to read- but for looks, I prefer the King (negative display and martial style)

    Rangeman or gulfmaster, to me, king is just like an over sized basic square and its kinda pricey.i have 1 gulfmaster and 3 rangeman. Zero king.looks wise, gulfmaster looks best.

    Cal.45,

    You said the only G's you bought this year were the GD-350's. Have you tried the GW-9400 in the field?

    No, but to me the Gulfmaster is a bad joke (lookswise and a 60min cdt -both a 100% dealbreaker) and the "King" is a very basic G with nothing special (yeah, the "magic" alpha gel I know ) but too small digits in a too big case. Personally, I'm not interested in any of the three, but the Gulfman and the GX-56 I don't even consider. I'm not much interested in the Casio ABC technology either, but the one-button stopwatch access of the GW-9400 is one cool and very useful gagdget, actually one that makes a lot of sense in daily life and besides - it looks by far best of the three

    GX-56-1A? Hmm... Sound pricey on eBay. But myself would prefer rangeman if budget allowed. I am aiming both GX56 and red rangeman.
