A place to show off the new carbon core mudmaster gwg2000, originally I was in the " I'll pass camp " but then a few videos on YouTube later and kaboom ordered on sunday through amazon using a Japanese market dealer & it arrived today.


Immediate thoughts are

More comfortable on the wrist.
Better strap construction.
To my eye it seems like larger font size in display slot.
Sapphire glass always seems way better to me then hardplex imho
Seems like a cleaner dial layout.

Apart from the CF core, is there any functionality difference between my GWG1000, and the new GWG2000?

No, both triple sensor, same functions.
What you get different
Softer strap, soft keeper(good or bad)
1.9mm slimmer
Less bulky bezel which makes it wear smaller, even though it’s roughly the same size.
Forged carbon, each gwg has a different pattern . How strong it is, time will tell. But it does feel solid. It does wear completely different (for me at least) on the wrist. But I do love both the 1k and 2k.

Ironically, all the 'differences' are things I'm not keen on (I like the bulk of the 1000) however, I'm a sucker for Caron Fiber!

I normally am 100% in your camp , heck I'm by the fire & burning s'mores that's how much I prefer the casio non diet based models. Ie the computer laptop sized rangeman and others but I gotta say this new mini mudman isnt likely to be leaving my rotation ... the carbon core is growing on me.

I have a average wrist at 7.5" which seems to offer either the too tight or too loose strap hole option for me .. so I have that going for me but the strap is comfy cozy & I like the keeper.


Who else has the 2k on the wrist ? Heard our members over in the UK were getting these rather quickly.

I want to see that grey/ slight tan ish variant on the wrist.

I got mine on the release date 1st October . I went stealth. I was torn between desert and stealth. At checkout I went back from desert🤷🏻‍♂️. But I kind of new which I didn’t get, I would probably end up with.

Don’t get me wrong, it’s still a large G! It just wears smaller than the 1k for me. Being 1.9mm slimmer. But it’s still a larger G and around same surface area as the 1k.


1k and 2k lum

Slim but not slim🤔 It’s still a chunk compared to many Gs

Stealthy is a great combo .. the both in cart moment and one must get deleted is a moment we will suffer with I'll assume lol damn opportunity costs ... every choice comes with not choosing something else arghhhh. It sounds like we both should have been born billionaires damn it.

🤣🤣🤣tell me about it. I’m rich for a day!😅 Gs have nothing on my flashlights and other stuff . But I enjoy Gs, still in my mind I have it all under control. There is probably 30-35 Gs in the house, that’s good for me! 20+ are mine, rest are my lads(think 8) and baby Gs(3 of).
Back to 2k!, well the green was/is my least fav of the 3. Always wanted sand or stealth. But naturally now I’m liking the green more each day 🤷🏻‍♂️. I also want to see what limited are going to come out. But unless it’s not much more than £200 on top(have to be impressive to me), I can’t see myself paying more for a colourway and box(that’s gets stashed away). So will have to see on that one. I also don’t like having too many dupes , so chances are the next G will be an MTG of sorts. But then what stopped me this time was the size (being smaller). That’s the kind of beep I have going round my head😅. It’s just a bloody watch!!!!😀
Oh and I’m just a poor boy from a poor family….😀

I just love the way this forum has so many rich members that think of nothing dropping almost £700 on a whim. :p Personally, I'll be waiting 3 to 4 years and then search for a nice used one at a somewhat more affordable price for myself, so, please keep them in good condition LOL...
