3.0 out of 5 stars Overall Good - Some Complaints, January 30, 2008
This review is from: Casio Men's G100-1BV G-Shock Watch in Black Resin (Watch)
Pros: This watch is quite accurate. I've never had to make any adjustments to it and have been wearing it for nearly two years. Still on the first battery. This watch is also incredibly rugged. I am an active, active outdoor adventurer and have ABUSED this watch. It's never once asked me to ease up on it; it just keeps telling me the time. This includes a couple SCUBA dives.

Cons: The light only lights the small digital display at the bottom of the watch. If, like me, you keep the digital display on the date mode, the night light won't help you much. I don't believe this watch has ever leaked, but if the temperature is cool, this watch fogs up. And finally, if the time is between 25 past the hour and 35 past the hour, don't even think about being able to read the digital display at the bottom; the minute hand WILL obscure your view.

Overall this is a great, rugged watch for the price.

I have a MUDMAN and have exactly the same problem. I have exchanged two previos watches and even switched model but with temperature change (& training/sport) the glass fogs. Like you I don't think it has ever leaked and I no complaints with it in any other area but I can't believe an outdoor style watch has such a stupid issue.

Im surprised the MUDMAN has the fogging issue - isn't it supposed to have a Low Temp LCD?

In reply to an earlier post on May 11, 2011 12:52:23 PM PDT
The fogging occurs because of a very small amount of water inside the watch. This is pretty normal , since most Casio watches are being assembled in Thailand where is a very high humidity. Nothing to worry about, but it can be annoying (I know what I'm talking about). There is always the possiblity to open the watch, let it dry out and close it again. This is best done in a rather dry, warm room or during winter when humidity is lowest (same goes for battery changes).

never thought about the assembly issue, I wonder if inert gas while reassembly would help. Thanx

I bought the watch after reading your review. Now that I experienced the watch for myself and completely relate to your cons and have more on my own (that I posted in my one star review below), I can't agree with the rugged part of your feedback. Since it has been written almost 7 years ago, I wonder if the fact that Casio moved their factory from Malaysia to China has caused the watch quality to degrade. As for today, it isn't rugged watch anymore, it's just a small toy.

Same here with mine. It's not like the air chamber, in beteen the glass & the face is climate controlled like a spacesuit from NASA. lol.. The high or low drop or rise in temperature will cause that. It's not faulty. Mines going on 4yrs old & has been submerged under water for hours at a time..Swimming in the summer, snowmobiling in the winter and its worn in the shower, daily. Nick, if u surf wearing that watch you would KNOW if that was leaking..Why no? lmao Mudman's are bad! as in good!
