Review of Casio G-Shock Mudman G-9000MS-1DR Military Inspired Series

A knock on my office glass door and the courier delivery personnel entered with my parcel. Heaving a sigh of relief, I knew my Casio G-Shock Mudman G-9000MS-1DR ordered online has finally arrived. After much emails sent to the merchant for their delay in delivery, I'm relief that I can put a closure to it today.

The G-Shock packaging was slightly dented during delivery. The merchants should have wrapped it with bubble wrap to further protect their products. I was slightly disappointed with the packaging as I was expecting it to be better instead of just cardboard.

There it is, the G-Shock Mudman sitting inside the box wrapped in plastic.

Description from the product page:

The new military inspired series represents some of the very best of the tough and durable designs from the G-Shock ORIGIN and MASTER OF G line-ups.

My Review

At first glance, I began to admire the black matte finish of the band and case of the Mudman which was the reason for purchasing it. It gives the feeling of ruggedness and toughness. Picking it up it feels sturdy and built tough ready for any abuses that comes its way. Yet, it is quite light and the size is just right for me to wear it daily.

At the bottom of the box, you can find the user guide that looks like a mini dictionary. It comes in few languages and I started going through it to learn some basic features of the watch. First thing was to set the date/time of the watch and played around with the dual stopwatch and timer. You need to exert a bit of strength to push the buttons due to the thick resin casing. 

It's quite hard to view the screen at certain angles as its quite dark and you might need to push the light button. Outdoors, the viewing angle is OK as well depending on the viewing angle. 

After wearing it for a day, the watch feels comfortable on my wrist and feels just right. I was afraid that the resin strap will feel uncomfortable since I'm use to wearing steel band. I am satisfied and pleased with the G-Shock Mudman G-9000MS-1 and I believe it will serve me well.
