The Mil-Spec

Post by aikiman44 » Tue Feb 22, 2011 1:03 pm

The G-Shock M-Spec. Atomic time sync, solar charging, 200M WR.
I believe this is similar to the Mudman's case, part of the 7900 series. A major difference is the leather and cloth strap, much more comfortable than the usual G resin strap. I think this is a similar look and feel to the modification using adaptors and a Zulu. The color is dark green with black pushers, the large orange pusher is for ease of use. The strap is also dark green.

:excited: Another atomic 7900??!! :fro:

Really like the color combo on this, just not the strap. I have one on leather and I've only worn it a few times...not for me :snooty:

Looks like this one also has the real screws--one downer to the non-atomic ones in this series because they don't. :rock: Too bad no resin strap or it would be a contender to be a buddy to my GW7900. Still might have to consider it :think:


Edit: Even better... looks like there's a new MS series of these. One is blue :love: Sadly it isn't atomic :crybaby: For those that think they look the same, they do not. Once you get to looking at the displays, there are some big differences in the looks. Huh.... :( I haven't been keeping up with the 7900's, but it also looks like there are a few more atomic ones in difffering colors that have the resin.
Totally Sa-weet! 8-)

Must be 1,000's of G-Shocks out there, or at least 100's. :shrug:


You found a great one, Jay! :thumbsup:
