Born For The Trail: G-SHOCK Mudmaster GG1000-1A
Your life revolves around adrenaline highs tearing through treacherous terrain, so you’ll most likely be in the know about the need for resilient equipment of all kinds. But as much as you like to take risks being the thrill-seeker you are, you’re probably not wanting to risk damage to the valuable gear which accompanies you on your dirt-inducing escapades.
If you love ATVs as much as we do, you’ll be looking for a watch to match your powerful rugged machine. You need the G-SHOCK Mudmaster GG1000-1A. The latest addition to the MASTER OF G MUDMASTER Series, it’s built to withstand harsh environments and extreme conditions. Not only is it shock resistant, but the Mudmaster defies sand, dust, water and mud too.
How, you wonder? Firstly, a cylinder guard structure is adopted for all buttons, with multiple gasket linings used on the pipes that guide buttons and shafts. The pipes not only serve to protect the buttons from impact, but simultaneously work to enhance button operation. Moreover, the crown is constructed with an extremely air-tight screw-lock structure, further ensuring resilience against the pitted, unpredictable path ahead.
A watch both fun and functional, the Mudmaster not only looks the part, but comes equipped with features which will aid you throughout your epic adventures. Key to the Mudmaster is its Twin Sensor capabilities which provide readily accessible direction information via the digital compass and thermometer readings for temperature data. In addition 5 alarms and 48-city world time (31 time zones be exact), countdown timer, stopwatch ans 12/24 hour time formats to keep you up to speed with your activities.
Given its size, the Mudmaster sits lightly on the wrist, weighing only 94g in total. The masculine 56mm watch is made from resin/stainless steel with a mineral glass cover.
The watch is notably marked with Arabic numerals at 12, 3, 6 and 9 o’clock for ease of reading. Super Illuminator adds a high-brightness auto LED light, ensuring high visibility under virtually any conditions. The buttons come in slightly large sizing and are non-slip, allowing for ease of use when pressing, even if you’re wearing gloves.
With the Mudmaster available on your choice of khaki-, sand-, or urban grey-coloured textured bands, the GG1000-1A keeps its wholesome, rugged look.
