I’m the opposite hole wise on the 1k. The 2k being softer allows for a slightly tighter fit yet remains comfy.


If want perfection for, the q1000mc bracelet (new frogs to) has an awesome knurled adjuster, which allows more than 1” of adjustment. Can fine tune comfort to the mm

Now the gpw1000 has a carbon fibre strap, that I find is comfortable. But the keeper doesn’t keep very well!! Can slide out easy (easy fix as just crush keeper a fraction ). However I decided to add the bracelet to this to. With the micro adjustment, excellent. And it’s light weight!



Loving my 2k’s, my fav G release this year


Cheers ven
That looks tits !!! we have so many clever mofos on here

Got mine yesterday, giving it a test run today. "Third person" wrist shot below for those that want a better perspective, 7.75" inch wrist. Few thoughts, keep in mind this is my first Mudmaster, I usually wear either a Rangeman 9400 or GSTB300.
  • Not sure I like the functionality of the crown vs using buttons like on my rangeman and g steel. Harder to set things when on the wrist. I'm sure I'll get used to it but it seems kind of fiddly.
  • Size is decent, it's strange since it looks larger than my rangeman but is actually slightly thinner and identical l2l and widthwise. Probalby because it's more "filled out" in shape.
  • Biggest beef....the TIMER DOESN'T DO MORE THAN 1 HOUR! Not sure what the heck happened there, both my other watches have a timer that runs up to 24 hours. It's not lack of space on the display since the stopwatch will go for up to 24 hours. Might almost be a deal breaker for me, we'll see.
  • I bought this color since the hands seemed the most visible but I'm not sure about the color scheme, seems almost cartoony to me with the red and green. For those of you with the all black version, do you have any trouble with hand visibility against the dial?
Overall seems like a great watch, we'll see if it grows on me.

No issue at all legibility wise


Desert sand is also good

I really like your military green, would give it some time . They all appeal to me, but in truth the least appealing was the green. However as always now it appeals like hell😂.
I could not choose out of stealth and desert. At checkout with desert, i back tracked last second for stealth , this was for the 1stOct release in UK. 3 weeks later desert ordered🤷🏻‍♂️😂

Appreciate the feedback, thanks. It is growing on me, and I'm very much appreciating the bright hands in low light. I think it's going to turn into a long term mod project. Once pacparts has stuff for these I'll probably get a black band and some other parts to replace the red accents. Should be just about perfect then. Or maybe when jaysandkays has some adapters I'll put a Borealis strap on it.

100%. Be interesting what limited flavours
come out (think blue is next in line or has blue on/in it). Not actually a fan of blue but will see.
You could probably buy a black band now if deal with casio direct. Glad it’s growing on you, I found that to. Although I did really like it straight away. As with most Gs, over time you start to appreciate the finer details that bit more(especially ones you never noticed at first haha).

I removed the leopard print strap on my new WLP mudmaster 1000 as I felt it wasn't the right look for a 58 year old unfashionable greying geezer like me. Fitted a black strap looks better for me and enjoy the gold highlights on the watch.
Picture, please (I'm a 58 yo geezer, too)

I covered the bezel's red accents on the GWG-2000-1A3, to see how the look changes.

1. Standard / Default:

2. With all red accents covered:

Watch Analog watch Light Rectangle Clock


3. With top (too large) and bottom (too small) red accents covered. Middle accents (about right) open:

Watch Analog watch Product Clock Font



* This is how I like it

* At arm's lenght, is almost impossible to notice that those spots are covered

* If the tape comes off I can easily reapply it

* And if I get bored of the look I can just remove it

No, nothing. Guess more waiting is in my future :(
I had some delays also but they were due to FedEx being overwhelmed. But I got my "mudmaster" in sheep's clothing today. Mudmaster lite.....

Same functions as my GWGs had but the buttons are easier to push. Where is the Pro Trek owner's club? 🤣

Are the GWG-2000s shipping today or tomorrow? At the G-Shock site the Pre-Order button is now Buy, but out of stock. I pre-ordered, so don't know what happens next. Any ideas?
About an hour ago I got notification that mine has shipped. But I have an account with FedEx, so it was from them direct.

I have still yet to recieve an email from CasioUS.

So if yours isn't on it's way already, it should be soon. I paid for expedited shipping, so mine should be in my hands tomorrow!:D
