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.....

View attachment 16244589

Same functions as my GWGs had but the buttons are easier to push. Where is the Pro Trek owner's club?
Is yours this & love the positive display.. if they ever just slapped 200 meter iso on these beasts that would be cool. Where did you find the best value/ price ?

Since I had to look it up saw some great new colors but damn those negative displays unless they fixed legibility.

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.

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
Lucky you 👍. Yes, got an email last night 11:38pm from Casio directly that the watch has been shipped, arriving tomorrow. My invoice was emailed at 1:45am today. Counting the minutes. So guess that things are moving, hope everybody get their watches soon. I don't know if marketing hype, but now the site has watches available, after a couple of days with the Sold Out button. Anyway, looking forward for it.

Cool, very cool. Enjoy. I got this morning a delivery update for tomorrow instead of today :(
Have my doubts as I have never seen the watch in person, don't know what to expect. Great value, overpriced, just right? Time will tell.
You will either absolutely love it or seems like based on your wrist size & or value of a clearer digital screen. Otherwise it's a coin flip. Good luck and post a wristie.

Got it this past Saturday. My first impression was that this watch is well worth the price, something that I was somewhat doubtful. Pictures do not does justice to the watch, bet a lot of Casio designers spent long nights at their desks. The materials are high quality, and the design is really nice, minimalistic, not much of clutter on the dial as some Gs. There are some things that I would have liked for Casio to change, first the size, guess they could have made it a bit smaller, 57-58mm, it would have been nice as an everyday, everywhere watch. Also, for some reason it doesn't sit as well on my wrist as my GSW-H1000 that is a little bigger, but it feels more comfortable that I even forget that I am wearing it. Maybe it has to do with the design in the back bumpers. The band of the GSW is also softer but sturdy, like that one very much. And, finally the contrast between the dial and the hour/minute hands is very poor. In the pictures it looks like the hands are lighter but in real life, they are a shade of gray that is darker, thus not easy to see at first glance. The white mode arrow is more visible. But overall, this watch is a killer, love it with the little faults, the face has a lot of movement depending on the light, it is an awesome effect. No doubt this will be one of my favorities. Was very surprised in a good way.

Hi Everyone
I'm new to this forum but not to WUS having previously owned an Omega Planet Ocean 45.5mm ,SS with orange bezel, I do have a 9400 Rangeman and 30 minutes ago I ordered a GWG1000 1a3ERwhich should arrive tomorrow.
It has been an infuriating search for a specific combination of features I wanted ,but I have had to compromise and spend extra to get the exact combination that I wanted, which are the white numerals and markers on the dial and a black strap.
In Casio world, that doesn't exist. Annoyingly to me, the 1aER that has the white numerals comes with a green strap , the 1A has the black strap but yellow ish numerals.
I live in the UK , so the watch will arrive tomorrow but the black band will be another week or so because the only one I could find at a decent price is coming from Japan, then I have to find a way to change the strap , I have watched video's on this but I haven't got the little tool for pulling the small pins out.
It's a shame they don't come with a black strap as standard , my 2nd choice would be yellow but the 1A9 again has the different numerals and a red arrow frustratingly.
I actually imported my Rangeman from Japan because the JDM one had a carbon fibre strap as standard whereas the ones in the UK had a normal resin strap.
I wish I knew why the 1A3ER comes with the green strap and thought that combination was a good idea , at this pricepoint , you should be able to choose to get the exact combination you want.

Agree, Casio should offer more options. In some new watches they are making the exchange of straps more easy, wish we see this trend covering all their new watches.

For me , the green strap does not work , the yellow and black straps do work , although I would prefer the yellow strap with the 3ER because the little arrow is yellow , not red as comes standard on the A9 .
I don't think quick release straps would fit the mudmaster because of the design of the case.
I have a GA2000 with quick release straps , I have 10 different coloured Barton bands to go with it , I had to get the white one because it was the only model with a positive display like my rangeman plus the coloured straps go better with the white case rather than black. I do refer positive displays but they are not an option with the GWG1000.
