Casio Europe was the first official G-Shock site to add the upcoming G-Shock Mudmaster GG-1000 to its lineup. The GG-1000 is an all-new analog-digital G-Shock design for 2016. The model numbers are GG-1000-1A (black band), GG-1000-1A3 (army green band), and GG-1000-1A5 (desert tan khaki band). G-Shock Japan announced the GG-1000 series for an April 2016 release with the model numbers GG-1000-1AJF, GG-1000-1A3JF, and GG-1000-1A5JF.
Update: Casio USA announced a May release for the green GG1000-1A3 and desert tan GG1000-1A5 with a list price of $320.
The Mudmaster GG-1000 is a smaller version of the Mudmaster GWG-1000 with less features in the same way the Gulfmaster GN-1000 is a reduced version of the Gulfmaster GWN-1000.
The GG-1000 is a battery-powered watch (not Tough Solar) with a Twin Sensor (compass and thermometer). The bezel has a similar design as the GWG-1000 but does not have a front-facing light button. The face has two LCD display areas and a prominent mode indicator dial. Like the GWG-1000 the GG-1000 is resistant to mud and dust. Unlike the GWG-1000’s sapphire crystal, the GG-1000 has a mineral glass display.
Other features include shock resistance, 200-meter water resistance, super auto LED light, neo-brite luminous hands, world time, 1/100 second stopwatch, countdown timer, 5 daily alarms with snooze feature, button tone on/off, automatic calendar, 12/24 hour timekeeping, and 2-year battery life.
Measurements are 56.2 x 55.3 x 17.1 mm and the weight is 92 grams. That is slightly smaller and lighter than the original GWG-1000 which is 59.5 × 56.1 × 18 mm and 119 grams.
The Mudmaster GG-1000 line will be released in April 2016 starting in Japan. The retail list price is ¥37,000 JPY.
Pros: Mud-resistant. Rugged and tough style. Smaller and lighter than the GWG-1000. More affordable than the GWG-1000.
Cons: Does not have Tough Solar power or Multi-Band 6. No pressure sensor (altimeter-barometer).

Do you know whether the band of GG-1000 is interchangeable with GWG-1000 ?
I ordered a GG-1000 , but I love the yellow band of GWG-1000 … Thanks.
There will be a gapping hole on the band near the bottom where the gwg1000 button be.
What happen after two years and the batteries run out,
Is there a way that the battery can be charged or would have to replace it with a new battery?
The battery on this model must be replaced. It is not rechargeable.
Question….I live in the US and want this watch with the black band. I don’t want the gold face version. Is it better/safer to order the green version and a black replacement band, or just buy an import from Japan (via Amazon)? Any idea why Casio only released the green and tan versions in the US?
Yeah personally I would probably just get it from Japan. I’m not sure why Casio chooses to release some models and not others in the U.S.
Is there a soft rubber strap that will interchange with the factory harder strap on the GG-1000?
Doespecially the GG1000-1A5 have atomic timekeeping, or do you set the time manually? Thanks.
No, this model does not have Multi-Band 6 atomic timekeeping.
Where can I find the black replacement band for the gg-1000 1a? I can’t seem to find it
I need to know about possible g shock mudmaster fake models…
I’ve seen this one that has a neon pink band on the inside..
I’m thinking it’s an older model and it’s for females. The quality is really good though.
Please reply as soon as possible.
I supposed the watch has time in digital format. Does this digital time sync up with the analog time as indicated by the hour minute hands automatically?
Yes, the analog hands are linked to the digital time.
hi. why some of the time my neon light for GG1000 not bright enought
Is the battery charged fully?
How long do you think the thermometer needs until it read the ambient temperature when you move from one place to another? Got the GG-1035 and it takes quite a while to go from 80-ish to 45-ish F
The GG-1000 manual says it can take 20-30 minutes after removing it from your wrist so I would assume it would be similar if changing environments.
