    Those MUDMAN buttons are tough!

    No kidding folks, those MUDMAN buttons are tough to press!! YIKES .... I am already developing arthiritis, pressing them!!

    BUT there is definitely a good feeling to feel that stiffness ... makes you feel that the watch is protected!!

    Sure they get a little softer but not much. Want smooth buttons get a Gulfman

    The buttons on my GW5525 Dawn Black are much harder to push than the muddy.

    You'll get used to it.. it's just one of those things which made the Mudman unique. You get a feeling it's completely sealed up..

    Remove the bezel and boil it.

    No, seriously. The buttons will be softer. Many people have done it, myself included.

    See this guide:

    However, I would like to note that you are voiding the warranty as well as might negatively impact the water resistance (depending on whether you re-insert the seal and re-fasten the screws properly). Unfortunately, the Mudman's design requires to actually open the case in order to remove the bezel.
