    So I'm in a bad place here guys. I've fallen in love with the core and the mudman. The bright side is if I ordered a core, and a mudman, then I would have still spent less than my current citizen lol, but that won't help the argument with the wife lol. My problem is picking specific models though. I love the all green mudman, and also the all black, however, they are not available in the atomic solar versions. And as for the Core, I like pretty much every color they have, green/black, black/black, black/white, and black/yellow. In that specific order too lol. Is there any hope for me? :lolhammer: :help:

    here's another option, get both, ditch the wife, then you don't have to explain a thing. :highfive:

    if you like the all black, buy a solar one then dye it. there's plenty of DYI dye jobs on gshocks.

    Go somewhere and try them on before you save money and buy online.

    For me, it was the mudman. My wrist just isn't big enough for the Suuntos. I bought the mil-spec all black.

    Wishing I had bought a different G-Shock now.

    I've been wearing the Rally Mudman since it came out. Love it! Very comfortable.

    Well since my bulova has decided to stop working properly I'm down to my citizen as my only functional watch. Nothing against my citizen just that I hate wearing the same watch every day, I need change. I found this military style gshock mudman on amazon and it looks like it will even ship to Canada. I can't track down the all forest green mudman I fell in love with earlier, so this is what I may order next week. A core will have to wait a bit, but, still will be on my wish list. On a side note, I probably imaged this all forest green mudman, as I imagined a all mud brown mudman.

    love that watch BUT I want a negative display. That's the kicker for me. I find the negative displays really really stand out.
