I would wholeheartedly recommend a AWGM100B-1ACR to anybody. This beauty is simple in construction, but looks really cool, without breaking the bank. Some people complain about the hard-to-read day and date with the negative LCD, but how often do you need to know the dates? Picture is of it with me on the shinkansen heading to Osaka, Japan.

That's a gw-3500, and is possible to find different bezels for that one, search on tiktox our pacparts, and eBay, but this last one is really hard to find!
 You have different models like the g-1250, gw-3500b,gw-3500bd...all have different lettering colors, our the 1250 a gray bezel!

I've had my mudman for about a month and a half, and I wish I'd got one sooner. Since converting it to nato strap I've only taken it off to dry the strap a bit after it's been wet, but otherwise it's been on my wrist 24/7. It's certainly very waterproof, I've worn it in the sea, in the hot tub every day while on holiday, showers, when washing up etc and it great.

It's a good job the glass is made of tough stuff, as it's had a couple of good bang so far, and hasn't got a mark on it. Very reassuring indeed.

The only thing I don't like about it is not being able to change the date format to what we use over here, but with all the things I do love about it, I suppose I can forgive that, maybe...

Around the holiday season my father found this 6600 on the sidewalk in front of his house. He asked the guests at his parties if it was theirs and noone claimed it. He's in his 80s and not the kind of guy who wears plastic so he gave it to me.

Has a broken button.

I've read that a 6900 light button will fit and those are easy to find on various colors. But they have the G on them. Which is cool anyway unless I end up finding the correct one for it.

Sanitizing and removing the previous owner's crud right now.

Part of the daily carry. Everything else rotates, but always got the G.

Did have one of these:


But sold it on so the only G I currently have is this one:


Great hard wearing watches, fit and forget especially with the solar RC ones.

Oh good lord, MTO is going to be the death of my wallet... ;)

So, here's the thing... I don't need a watch, however, following this thread has made me WANT one  ::)

So I went and ordered one of these...




GA-100-2A1ER

Saw those somewhat cheaper from Hong Kong and Singapore, but not quite trusting their authenticity, so I got this coming from Spain  :cheers:
