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.

I initially didn't like the 2K, but more I look at the photo more I start to like it, and i must have it. So here it is. Finally joined the 2K club. 馃槣

I call mine for Desert Transformer. They could have replaced "3" with an Autobot logo. 馃槑

I've said before that the new gwg-2000 wasn't my cup of tea, but the desert version looks a bit more uniform than the other colourways.

So... I've got one coming in and see irl if it floats my boat. Guess it's a little bit of fomo, since I can't find any Japan version any more. The one with the fancy box packaging. Looks like the desert version is really out of production, as it was said before.
I thought the same and changed my mine on the desert one for same reason. The blackened steel ring makes it look more uniform, more like GWG1000.
I was pleasantly surprised by the fit and finish of the watch. It wears smaller and equally comfortable as the GWG1000. GWG1000 is still the beast though, but 2000 is more refined. You won't regret it.

Swapped the keeper between GWG-1000 and GWG-2000 and I like the result. GWG-1000 become more comfy to wear and GWG-2000 looks better with the metal keeper. 馃檪

I think point #4 is due to the former (gwg-1000) having a mediocre negative display. Several members here have stated that the gwg-2k has a better display.

The negative display on GWG-1000 is perfectly fine. Don't understand the complain about it. I actually like it better. The display on 2000 has a greenish hue which I don't like.

Curious to see how it ages when the bumpers and lugs are all scratched and chipped.
Will it add to the battle look or will it look cheap.

I already enquired if those parts are available to order and what the damage will be.
well it will definitely be more expensive to replace the bezel part than GWG-1000. Just these 2 pieces cost more than $200 according to Pacparts.

Dayyuummmmm, 馃槃 馃槃 馃ぃ 馃槀 Reminds of this time I looked into buying a strap from Omega for my AT. The strap itself was priced pretty insanely, but then it also required a tiny little metal piece to fit between the straps and the lugs to give it a more integrated look...and it was around $200 just for those pieces alone. We are talking tiny, tic-tac sized pieces of metal. Pretty shocking what you can get charged.
LOL, the same when I tried to order a rubber diver strap for my JLC MCDC at my AD. Not only its pricey, it doesn't even come with the buckle. You need to buy that separately. Nothing special with that buckle except the price. 馃槀馃憥

Watch Geek has posted a review of the GWG-2000.

I agree with him. 2000 is fancy while 1000 is tough and rugged. Two different watches.

Bummer. I want the workhorse of the 1k and the brighter display of the 2k.

Go for the 1000. It's a beast. The display is not bad at all. Don't understand the complain about it.

Well I see it differently.
GWG 1000 is with the cheaper resin body and looks cheapish
The GWG 2000 has the new crabon infused body that is both more durable and looks pleasing to the eye with the unique marble pattern.

Honestly sometimes GWG 2000 just gets hate out of spite or because the person in question already cashed in on GWG 1000 and is high in copium trying to justify that GWG 2000 is worse in every way.
Before I did not considered GWG 1000 since I have the 9400 that does pretty much the same, especially handling one (GWG 1000), I decided it is not worth it at this point. Sure the GWG - 1000 has a sapphire but it does not warrant such premium price, he's not even a Frogman. However with 2000 things are getting into place. Especially when you can find him sometimes at lower price than the original one.
Naturally that will trigger neuron activation and create the "Rolex effect" - oh I see, the GWG - 2000 can be found at lower $$, therefore it is inferior to the GWG 1000.
Call GWG2000 fancy is a compliment, not hate man. 馃槃 I have both and like both. As I said, two different watches.

These were just random thoughts and observation as a whole regarding the model and the "controversy" surrounding it. Right from the get go, majority were hostile towards it, while I think it looks better than the old model and I am not even a Mudmaster fan, but I am considering the TLC model since I think it looks the best.
Depends on if you already own 1K or not. I like 1K and don't see 2K is a successor to 1K. I see it as a parallel model like D1000 and A1000 Frogman.

No, I don't own 1000, but as far as compared to D-Frog - the latter is still better built and higher tier IMHO

Heh, let's wait until you have the full house of GWG-2k 馃槄馃槄

I'm still having internal discussion, whether order now or wait.... Funny thing is, that the price of the 2k is "only" 939EUR in local stores, while it is around 630EUR in Spain 馃
I never buy from local store. The price difference is just too much. 馃檪
