It worked perfect. Great features and the solar function really is a convenient invention. I just felt that perhaps it was a little too much money to have locked up in a G-Shock. But selling it and trying to get back somewhat near what I paid for it was impossible. Finally my friend Björn took it in a trade. I missed it the second it was gone and I knew I was an idiot.
Two years later, in the spring of 2014, I had a Tag Heuer Aquaracer 500 quartz out for sale (more about that one later). It had been serving as the traditional vacation watch during a trip to the Greek island Crete and was now looking for a new home. I received a lot of interest but only from talkers who couldn’t come up with cash. Finally I received an offer involving a part trade. The watch turned out to be my old Mudman so how I could I refuse to take it back if it also meant getting rid of the Aquaracer? It was a deal! Sadly it had lost its glow and the colors weren’t as bright as before. It was still colorful but especially the orange had started to fade to a more grayish tone of orange. It didn’t matter. It was my original watch and it went back to serve as my workout watch.
