    Service Use Rangeman/Mudman G-Shock question

    Morning everyone,

    For a long time, I have depended on my 5610, and recently my head's been turned by some of the sexier models of G-Shock... principally the Mudman, and Rangeman.

    I don't know what I'm being disloyal to my 5610. It's so discreet, I never know I'm wearing it. It never snags on my uniform, and it's been in the most horrendous places and doesn't have a scratch (probably because it's small enough to hide under my sleeve). It's unbelievably accurate, never needs a battery, and the illuminated display is simple and clear enough for my ageing eyes.

    I like the look and functionality of the Rangeman, and the Mudman. But in all honesty, I wouldn't use a watch for navigation, I'd use a proper compass or handheld GPS. Altimeter might be handy every so often, at a pinch. Really, it's just that they look awesome, and they ring the bell of my inner teenager.

    Has anyone used either of these as proper work watches, and how did they perform everyday? Were they easy to live with, or do they just snag on everything and annoy you?

    Thanks!

    My GW 9300 MUDMAN is my general knock around Watch. Heavy landscaping/yard work with tools. Carpentry/plumbing work in the house. No under the hood work with any Watch.
    Watch is more rounded, less prominotories such as the Rangeman has. Is a very comfortable Watch.

    I wear a Rangeman on a beer sales route. Lots of lifting, moving around cases of beer, banging into doors, shelves, kegs, etc. Extreme temperature differences throughout the day. It has done great, the band and keeper have some scratches, but none on the face. My only gripe would be the larger (sensor) button does occasionally get snagged with my hand causing it to be pressed, but it's a minor annoyance.

    Hi mate great choices!

    I wear them all but tbh the mudman wears flatter than the rangeman fits under my uniform shirts/ bdu sleeves... obviously not as small or flat as the 5610 but my personal hatred for squares limits me hahah

    Ha! A lot of people don't like the square! My children included! Thanks for the advice and thoughts. Glad to hear the mudman works with a uniform.

    MainePorsche, where did you get the guards?

    The bullbars for the 9300 Mudman are from 'jaysandkays', a merchant found on eBay. They are bullbars for the GW 9400 that are used for the GW 9300 Mudman.

    yankee express would swear on rangeman's barometer ability. he is the seaman here, and he said he uses his to record barometer change and it's pretty reliable. idk if he had change of mind lately tho since i haven't around for quite awhile....

    " and the sailer said Rangeman, what a fine watch you would be...."

    Sorry, love that song and just heard it on the radio on my drive to work.
