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.

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.

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.
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.
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.

So I may be a former member already. I had planned on selling my 1000 but now have changed my mind and will sell the 2000 instead. Will know for sure tomorrow.
I have been wearing my 1k all day lol ... the more I realized I actually like the heft and thickness (( big boned )) ole girl the more I started questioning wtf is going on here lol ... man this might be some casio mind gamesmanship psych games .... it started last night ....

Fit really trumps everything for me since I wear one watch 24/7. The main reason I am selling the new GWG2000 is because it is too loose in the 5th hole and too tight in the 6th hole whereas the GWG1000 fits my 7.5 inch wrist perfectly in the 5th hole.
Same 7.5 wrist here & another day of wearing the 1k and slapping back on the yellow strap & finally swapping the metal keeper for a rubber one as the 2k showed me I preferred that on the mudmaster ... this thread could be a 2k curse for those who own both ....

Grip6 micro adjustable belts.
Ted su makes a great slide style buckle not inexpensive but well made nonetheless. He makes them in 22/24/26 & obviously add the adapter and boom home run. But much less costing alternatives kick in once adapters are on since then the straps come out a bit more.

Congrats
Wear in good health, I’ve just swapped from my 1k

To 2k myself
I just saw what you did there in the 2k image ... very clever .... how did you control your weather long enough to make your barometric pressure reading into a smiling smirk face bro ? Come on give details



Hehehehe

Originally got the stealth on 1October

Now added the desert to my 2k family.






Impressions wise, it’s a more classy gwg, an MTGWG for me. Softer strap, wears smaller due to being 1.9mm slimmer and with the less bulky bezel. I’m a fan, all in all a nice G .
Ever get the feeling when someone may just take to a certain brand or model hmmmm I'm sensing you may end up being a fan of casios... crazy hunch I know but I'm just picking the casio vibe with you

No probs, I have the dc and MH for the 1k, so swap about. Actually might get another 1k(want the black) and for the MH bezel and strap on. This is the 1k with mh strap(I leave the dc one on as it looks better , matches the mode hand. The MH is a bit naff as dark green and not very noticeable )
There is one on Ebay and I'm pretty sure your picture just totally convinced me that is bad ass 100% ... not in love with what they want for the strap but that looks amazing !

Thanks also from me for this. Was wondering if the Jaysandkays adapters for the 1k would fit, now I know I'll need to wait and hope they come out with 2k adapters soon.
Or just purchase the correct 3D printer and let us know how much you will charge for them ... either or

Pac parts your side or tiktox uk, they ship US and Canada.
I’m always happy to help out a fellow G bro(or sis). So I can ship for you if want from UK and for some reason won’t. Just pm me, all it costs is what it costs.
Double 2k so far, is that a 4K?
Morning

Afternoon
Yes you would best be referred to as a 4k-er ... although at some point the last variable option will start to wonder what the hell ? And want you to become the even more rarer 6k-erer....

Many thanks mate on the offer. I know pac doesnt carry the straps oddly enough for the 2 models I actually am pondering but I'll check out your recommend.

Maybe collab with Toyota land cruiser or what would be truly badass would be Land Rover Camel racing from back in the damn day before they turned that amazing 4 wheel life challenging event into some kayak / rollerskating event.... casio if you want my dirty hard worked for cash then make the Camel Trophy Land Rover collab ... although one could argue that would basically be the tan 2k lol


What is everyone's dream collab with casio ....
