G-Shock Mudman GW-9300 and Gravitymaster GPW-2000 are officially discontinued

Two Master of G models from the 2000s are officially discontinued according to casio.com/jp.

G-Shock Mudman GW-9300 discontinued

We previously reported how the G-Shock Mudman GW-9300-1JF was in sold out status at casio.com/jp and likely to be discontinued. It is now officially discontinued according to Casio Japan. As that was the only remaining GW-9300 model, it is assumed that the GW-9300 series is discontinued, but perhaps we shouldn’t rule out a possible update in the future. The GW-9300 featured the Twin Sensor (compass and thermometer), moon phase graph, and guarded mud-resistant buttons. There still appears to be a lot of stock available at various Japanese retailers and third-party sellers.

The Mudman G9300-1 (casio.com/us) is still active and available in the U.S. The difference between the GW-9300 and G-9300 is that the G-9300 does not have Multi-Band 6 or a carbon fiber insert band and has an aluminum inner bezel part instead of stainless steel (making it 68.5 grams versus 70). It is otherwise the same. It is not known if the discontinuation of the GW-9300 will affect the future of the G-9300. (There are some series that are discontinued in Japan but still active in the U.S., and the G9300-1 remains a reasonably popular model according to Amazon.)

G-Shock Gravitymaster GPW-2000 Discontinued

Also officially discontinued is the full-analog G-Shock Gravitymaster GPW-2000-1A2JF, which was the only remaining GPW-2000 model. This came more suddenly than other recent Master of G discontinuations, as we did not notice it in sold out status before this. The made-in-Japan GPW-2000 was released in 2017. It was one of the largest G-Shock watches (at 66 x 57.1 x 18.2 mm) and the first Master of G series with Bluetooth smartphone link. Some of the notable features beyond the expected Tough Solar and Multi-Band 6 included magnetic resistance, Triple G Resist (shock, centrifugal gravity, vibration), and GPS reception for time adjustment and position information.

Other Gravitymaster series that remain active in Japan are the GW-A1100, GW-3000, and GA-1100. The GR-B200 is sold out at casio.com/jp and is probably the next Master of G series to be discontinued.
