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.

Lemme just say - no plans to get a GWG-2000 at this time. BUT if I were going to, it would be the SAND color, no doubt! They all look good, but that one is my favorite of all the colors so far.

Congrats to those who've picked up one or more of them!

The site shoppinginjapan.net has all 3 GWG-2000 versions, but the sand color is $180+ more than the other two!! I suspect that's just due to demand. From what I've seen, that site looks to make a quick buck where they can, whenever a particular model is high in demand. :rolleyes:

I鈥檓 ordering green 1k tomorrow. Will leave all wrappers and stickers on when it arrives and really carefully confirm sizing, in case I need to return. Either way I鈥檓 pretty sure I鈥檓 selling the sand 2k.
FWIW, IMO the green 1k is the most versatile of all of the 1000s in terms of wearing different colored straps. It not only looks great with the stock green strap, but also looks fab with the camo and yellow straps, same with the Maharishi, and might even look okay with the red strap (tho have not tried it myself).

Here are a couple: (rn I have it on the camo strap, but no pics available atm)

Yes mine has been discontinued and all the places that had it for around $300 are sold out now. PRW50Y-1B It has the positive display and lume on the hands only but I like it best and since my wife likes it too it is a real winner. Also the lugs and Barton 23mm elite silicone straps are perfect match.
Congrats, yours looks similar to mine, PRW-50YAE-2JR.

Nice, have you tried any Barton elite silicone? The Navy blue would look good on yours.

My first GWG-2000 (1A5) arrived today. I like it!! (y)(y)(y)

Here are some initial impressions on differences from the GWG-1000 in case it's helpful to anyone. Things you won't necessarily see in specs. The GWG-2000:

  • is somewhat "shinier" than the 1000, due to the SS bezel and various parts of the dial
  • its crystal is not as deep below the bezel as on the 1000 (maybe a 1-2mm diff) - will it increase likelihood of damage?
  • the city code ring is under the crystal, unlike on the 1000
  • the "claw" bezel pieces are made from...(carbon or steel??) MUCH more expensive than the 1-piece bezel of the 1000
  • the colored "ring" to notify you that the crown is unlocked (that the 1000 has) is gone
  • on the wrist the 2000 is noticeably not as tall as the 1000; its dial also appears to be slightly smaller than the 1000's
  • crown on the 2000 feels like steel (unlike the plastic crown on the 1000)
  • the bezel is steel - again, more expensive to replace if needed than the plastic one on the 1000
  • visually the 2000 does not appear quite as "beasty" as the 1000 (whether good or bad depends on you)

To me the 2000 is a slightlier "dressed up" version of the Mudmaster compared to the 1000. The 1000 looks like a wolf. The 2000 maybe is a wolf dressed in coyote clothing?? :unsure::ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO: These changes are not necessarily the best in terms of hard use for the watch and replaceable parts, but it does LOOK fantastic. And I STILL love my 1000, so both of those that I have are not going anywhere. (speaking of replaceable parts - @WES51 if you're reading this, you said on another thread that you have enough parts for your 1000 to last until the apocalypse! :ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO: Gave me a good laugh and you know why?? I'm right there with you! I have a bag full of parts AND straps!)

IMO: if you are truly going to give a Mudmaster very HARD use, then stick with the 1000. It should withstand it better w/out scratches, and if it doesn't the bezel is cheap to replace. I've no doubt that the 2000 can withstand hard use, but more expensive to replace parts if desired. If on the other hand your Mudmaster won't see hard use, then pick whichever one you like better betw the 1000 and 2000. Or get both. ;)

I particularly dig the "marbled" appearance of the 12:00 and 6:00 "claw" bezel pieces on the 2000. Does anyone know what these are made of? Are they steel or carbon? They sort of feel like carbon but I'm not sure... Maybe the "forged carbon" written on the strap refers to these??

Anyhow, I REALLY dig this "desert sand" colored GWG!!! I made a good choice, for me. This is one of my fav color schemes that Casio has done. I had been looking at the 40th anniv GWG-2000, but considering the price diff between these two, I could not allow myself to spring for the anniv version. This one has hints of yellow, and shades of gold and/or bronze on the dial, as well as the more beige or sand color of the bezel writing and strap.

This 2000 feels extremely comfortable on the wrist, while at times the straps on my 1000s have felt somewhat stiff. I also dig the non-metal strap keeper on the 2000.

One note on the strap: just as on the 1000, the strap is not particularly long. I only have 3-4 holes left on the strap when wearing both the 2000 or 1000. (7.75" wrist) If you have about an 8 1/2 inch wrist or so, you might be on the very last strap hole..)

Here are a couple pics, more to come down the line.

The triple is completed. I do really like this model. When the strap has been broken in, it's actually quite comfortable.
Just have to do somthing about my arm. It seems to be somewhat too short.

It must be an optical illusion, but the watches look progressively smaller from left to right... Like here's an "XL GWG-2000," followed by a Large, and then a Small. :ROFLMAO: :ROFLMAO:

Thanks for the pictures tny, still would love to see a gwg1000 with them. And hear what people think. Also is jays and Kay's the only one out there?? Any other adapter out there??
I've not used adapters on any GWG-1000 or 2000. But, I have used Jays and Kays adapters on other Gs, including the GPR-B1000 Rangeman, the GWF-D1000 Frogman, and the GX-56 King. (plus I bought adapters for the GW-5000 but have not used them yet..) That company has been around for quite awhile and they make a good product. (the adapters are metal too usually) Plus they are reasonably priced. I'd recommend sticking with Jays and Kays. Then you can use just about any strap you like, or even a bracelet.

Thank you again! I just looked and they look pretty good in those pictures. The only place I've seen them with realt people pictures is Amazon and the reviews weren't great. I am also concerned about the case being damaged by the adapters. I posted up a reply in that other thread, well see if anyone reaches back out. Once again thank you for the help! When I did a search on here it only brought up sales of bands and stuff. I am really looking for real world reviews preferably from people who are in manual labor jobs
I only now caught the "DRZ400" reference in your username - somehow missed it the first time I saw it. Off-topic, but do you have any pics of the bike?

I've never ridden a DRZ400, but I'd like to. Currently have a WR250R and a CB500X...

Now that I think about it, before I got my WR I did sit on a DRZ SM at my dealer. At the time it seemed crazy high in price. But then, my WR wasn't all that much cheaper as it turned out! And my bikes have clocks too. LOL
Trust me, whatever you choose you will regret anyway, until you buy all of them 1a1, 1a3, 1a5, tlc, flame red 馃槀馃槀馃槀. And ofcourse there is upcoming one, GWG2k Aurora version 馃嵏
Is there?? Where did you see this?
Hmmm, I wear mine at least 3-4 times a week and yes, generally for vigorous hiking and exercising and I've never once had that happen. I'm curious if others have experienced this? I generally wear mine a bit more on the tighter end so maybe that's why? Not sure.
...you lost me at "vigorous hiking and exercising." ;)

Very nice 馃憣. This is exactly what I want but still waiting for a deal price (under 拢500 ideally). I'd also like to black out the beige/sand/orange ring around the bezel. ALL BLACK EVERYTHING!
WTH?? Why not just wait for a blacked-out GWG-2000 from Casio then? Pretty sure they will do one at some point.

The "Desert Sand" color is what makes that particular model great looking IMO. You take that away, you've taken away the essence of that particular watch. (and not in a good way) As for the other guy's comment about flesh-colored underwear - I don't know where that came from (& frankly don't wanna know), but maybe somebody's been smoking something? :ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO:
