Casio G-Shock G-9100TC-2 Gulfman

My selection today is my "Triple Crown of Surfing" G-Shock Gulfman. You might recognize the logo from my other "Triple Crown" watches. The orignal Gulfman models came out in 1999 and in 2007 Casio revived the name for this new line of Gulfmen. The new ones do have a tide graph and moon phase indicator like the old Gulfman, and the design is similar, but the two version don't share any parts. I mainly got this new one because it's a unique color and more limited that the new standard Gulfmen. Casio has released a Dawn Black Gulfman as well as an Ocean Gray Multiband Gulfman with radio-controlled atomic timekeeping, but both are significantly more expensive than the Triple Crown version. It's an interesting looking watch with a number of unique details, like the titanium caseback and textured bezel ring, as well as the "Dual Illumination" which you can see in the last photograph. The display is similar in size to the new Mudman models, but the overall size of the watch is smaller and thinner. I think it's a great watch for summer and look forward to wearing it in the future.
