    Which of these 3 G you prefer?

    I have all three:


    Which one you prefer?

    Pros/cons of each of them?

    - Riseman, pros: multiband6, solar, temperature+barometer.
    cons: low illumination, look.

    - Gulfman, pros: multimand6, solar, look.
    cons: not too many functions.

    - Mudman, pros: all protected, 1000 hours stopwatches, bright illumination.
    cons: no muntiband, no solar.

    feel free to add if interested

    cheers,
    Giovanni

    I have the riseman and a mudman, but no gulfman yet. I am thinking about picking up a non atomic gulfman. In any event, I can't vote because I like all of them.
    Regards.

    I actually prefer the Muddie you are describing (G-9000) over the others.
    And they do make an atomic/solar one also with a rally timer.

    I like the atomic solar Gulfman the best. I do like the styling of the Riseman, but I prefer a Pathfinder ABC instead of the AB on the Riseman. Mudman? Just not very visually pleasing to me.

    Re: Which of these 3 G you prefer?

    Hi,
    I had a few of those: G-9000, GW-9000, GW-9010, G-9100, GW-9200-1, GW-9200MS but sold them all for the following reasons:
    G-9100: most uncomfortable strap I ever had on a G
    GW-9200: button design, mismatched back cover and front bezel
    Mudman: stiff buttons
    Don't think I'll ever get one of those models again. However sometimes I do miss the Rally Timer of the GW-9010.

    Greetings, Sedi
    Cheers

    Re: Which of these 3 G you prefer?

    I vote for the missing fourth option: none

    - GW-9200: Had one, but sold it because I couldn't stand the the red circle and the red alti-button (without that, I would prefer the GW-9200 out of this three).
    - G-9000: had four, kept only one because it was a gift. Too hard to press buttons, to be useful for EDC.
    - GW-9100: never had one. while visually stunning, the (mediocre) functions are the same as my GW-810BXD have, and that is not enough to justify a purchase.

    bottom line: to me, all three have weak points which outhweigh the strong points. My top 3 G's which remain unbeaten to date: G-7900, G-7710(c), G-800BD.


    cheers

    Re: Which of these 3 G you prefer?

    The Riseman and Mudman are cousins, and both look a little 'squashed' to me, therefore Gulfman.
    I used to list my watches here until I realised it ruined people's Google searches...

    Riseman GW9200, for me

    my reason: current time in pretty much all modes, 24hr CDT, comfortable on the wrist, "special feature" (alti/baro/temp) that are more useful to me.
