Well, two things come to mind: GR-9110GY and one of either G-9300GB or G-9300GY.

Not able to buy anything this month :mad: That's the fun of being a contractor! All watches seem to be functioning ok but I might set hourly alarm on all, set all to same time and see how long it takes for them to drift out of sync.

Concentrating on taking the solars out to enjoy the sunshine before winter hits.

Nice choice, any of the new Mudman releases would rule.

Sometimes it's good to consolidate, that's what I keep telling myself :D

Managed to scrape together enough for a CR2016 to pop into my DW-6600 Williams as it came over from Japan with what appeared to be the original battery. When the backlight button was pressed everything dimmed. But not since a quick battery change:

644

And the good news? Got a heads up that that letter is due to be sent to all contractors (working for this 5 billion euro turnover company) informing us to accept a 10% rate cut or four weeks notice!

I'm after the Mudman G9000BP-1 but so far haven't found anyone that stocks it! :-(

I have just looked on Google - there are plenty out there! But not in the UK. I have bought new watches from the States, Hong Kong and Singapore without any problems - just paid attention to feedback and comments.


eBay search:

Looks great, one of the better EL images :D

Ooof, bad news :(

Looks like plenty on the 'bay as macspite says. Or via amazon (assuming you're in the UK) > http://www.amazon.co.uk/Casio-G9000BP-1-G-Shock-Multi-Function-Digital/dp/B004YZIBRQ.

Never thought to look on Amazon for gshocks. Thanks very much for the link. Now if I could find the model number of this one I'd add it to my order.

If my memory (OK google) is correct that's the GW-410TCJ-7JR aka Triple Crown Of Surfing North Shore Hawaii, see the excellent 50Gs blog for more details > http://50-gs.blogspot.com/2010/03/7-feel-vibrations-oh-yeah.html . It's a JDM model only and is long discontinued, you'll need to looks on ebay or watch forum classifieds for this one.

Pretty nifty looking model, often though I'd quite like one. However the fact the waveceptor would be useless in the UK puts me off. Plus the cost ;)

Ouch!:black_eyed: In that case, I'll just stick to getting the G9000BP-1. I've already got myself the DW6900CS-1 this month :)
