HOLY SH......

No Lie !!!

I have been contemplating the green strap w/yellow markers for probably 2 months now.

I've been thinking that I'd like use it as a replacement for my current work watch, my ss GMT IIc. Bang this g-shock up instead of the Rolex. I've just become really used to wearing the GMT - not sure if the change would stick.

It would be a nice change up from the GMT for sure. I can't find a solid price on it. Is it just import only?

Found it for $500 - $550 on Amazon depending on the color. Is that where you were seeing it also?

Noooooo.... I had no idea its size of 59 x 56mm?!?!?

The JDM watch, green strap is the one that I would get. See that being the most likely to be work compared to the yellow strap. The black one is just too plain.

And you're welcome for the encouragement to click.

seller was greatdeals-39 around 2000 + feedback.

has nothing else for sale right now, great seller, fast, insured shipping.

All is good, I like it more than expected - wore it to work today. It doesn't wear as large as it's claimed to be, feels more like a DSSD than the 57.5 mm Zenith. I'm still learning/getting used to all the functions. I tried to "get" the radio controlled time yesterday and early today, wouldn't do it. Tried again tonite and it worked! It takes a loooong time, like 5+ minutes. If/when done, it's best to push the "receive" button then set it down on a table. Directions say not to move the watch when it's happening and I think that's what I was doing wrong at first. Now it's all set and ready to go to the second. The watch will also "get" the time every nite, so the time should be pretty spot on daily.

Another note on size, I like that it's larger. I wear kevlar gloves regularly at work and the watch is big enough that the gloves don't cover the watch dial, unlike my GMT. It's real easy to glance at it to know the time, especially near break time!

Yeah, I'll do a couple pics, hopefully Friday. If, for nothing else, to compare the size, side by side, with a couple other watches.

Oh, one last first impression - I've become drawn to watches that are very easy to read at a glance. This MudMaster is not as good as a Panerai (best I've seen/own) but better than a SS Rolex.

Thanks for the initial impressions. Can't wait to see some wrist shots and comparison shots of it next to the DSSD and the RG Zenith.
