Forgotten But Not Gone

G-Shock g9000-8v g9000mx-4 g9000mx-8 mudman white red orange
These Mudman watches were first introduced in 2008 and some were sold for a while at the usual big box stores.. But, now they are no longer in the USA G-Shock catalog. They are, however, part of the current Asian line-up and still show up on eBay at very reasonable prices. These alternative colorways are as fresh as any that Casio offers here (& now) and the dual chronographs are a very useful feature


“MUDMAN is designed and engineered with people like motor sport mechanics in mind. Its Mud Resist construction seals out everything from the oil of workshop to the sand of motorcycle rally. A Dual Illuminator back-light can be configured for 3-second or 5-second afterglow for easy reading in the dark.
Dual 1,000-hour stopwatches allow simultaneous measurement of two times, which means you can use one stopwatch to time a race and the other to determine how much time is being lost in pit stops. The back cover is engraved with the image of a mole, which represents the MUDMAN concept,” says the Asian Casio site.

DUAL ILLUMINATOR – Dual EL panels provide simultaneous illumination of the LCD panel and the dial for better readability when available lighting is dim.
