Three watch rotation for a badge?
« on: April 06, 2016, 10:48:01 AM »
My current users... Nothing too fancy or expensive.



- G-Shock G5600 - my first G-Shock. I bought it 3 years ago to take the rough use instead of the Seiko
- Seiko Solar Diver SSC017 on a Zulu strap, my daily workday user, also 3 years old.
- G-Shock GD400 - a recent purchase

The practical side of me says I need nothing more than these. Who really needs all the functions of a huge ABC-sensor watch anyways? The 'tool collector' side says I really really like the look of the new Mudmanmaster..  :whistle:  :facepalm:

I actually misspoke, I meant Mudmaster instead of Mudman...

The newly released twin-sensor version will also do...

I guess all digital makes more sense for a sensor watch.

I know, it´s notr a mudmaster, but you seen the GA-1000 I offer, Lobsterboy?  :pok:
http://forum.multitool.org/index.php/topic,59498.0.html

I will be updating the G-Shock thread shortly. New price will be 150,- € including shipment.

And I do like teh G-5600 and Seiko very much, the Gd 400 has a nice retro vibe (see DW-002, DW-003 pics for comparison) but is to big for my skinny wrists.  :tu:

Haha, I like it plenty but if I had that kind of cash I would have bought the G-9300GB-1 by now.   :P

I was pretty close to nabbing the GW-6900 and GLX-5600 too.

G-Shocks and a Seiko- looks like a great combination to me!

Zoidberg: Too bad for you, but I´m glad both watches I sent southwards are worn. I can imagine a trade on any or all of those watches you mentioned, btw.

Brock O Lee, do you have any favourite out of the three watches? How well holds the Seiko´s crystal up against scratches?

I like them all for different reasons
- the Seiko for more formal occasions, like work (I have a desk job )
- the G-shocks after work or over the weekends

The G5600 is maybe a little bit small for my wrist, and the standard resin strap is not the most comfortable.

The GD400 is a little bit too large for my wrist, but its acceptable. The strap is more comfortable than the G5600.

Of all the straps I like the Zulu on the Seiko the most. It transformed the watch in terms of comfort. I find metal bracelets in general to be noisy and heavy and clunky.

The Seiko's Hardlex crystal was quite scratch resistant, until I shattered it one night by dropping it face-first on a tile floor...  :'( I replaced it with a standard mineral crystal, which scratches much easier than the Hardlex.

Great watches.  You guys and your Zulu straps,  I'll have to get one at some point.

If I start and end the day above ground, it is a good day!

Hope yours is as good!
