Going to try boiling another G-Shock first to see how that affects the resin strap then I may go for doing the same on the Riseman.
Nice pic of the black metal band btw!!
Anyone know what band those guys were in? I think they are both now dead (that's a bit of a hint actually).
"Reality is merely an illusion, albeit a very persistent one."
Boiling the strap will not get rid of the kinks. They are molded in that way. Only option I can think of is to use a different strap.
"Far out, in the uncharted backwaters at the unfashionable end of the western spiral arm of a galaxy, lies a small unregarded yellow sun. orbiting this at a distance of roughly 92 million milesis an utterly insignificant little blue-green planet whose ape-descended life forms are so amazingly primitive that they still think digital watches are a pretty neat idea."

So, last night I was drinking and I had an idea to put an unused stainless steel Invicta Pro Diver oyster watch band on my Cassio G-Shock Riseman. And, guess what. It worked. You will have to work at it to get it on, but you can do it though. I never throwout any watch bands I ever had. You never know when you can use it again. I can't believe how comfortable it feels. The stainless steel sensor and EL button really looks nice with the stainless steel oyster watch band. I know in the watch community that digital watches and metal cases and bands are looked down on. But, the stainless steel Pathfinders and Protreks are really nice though. High tech diigital watches should get a pass in my opinion.

My daily five watches.
G-Shock MTG930DA-8V, G-Shock GW-5600J-1, Citizen Eco-Drive BM8180-03E, G-Shock Riseman GW9200-1, and a Vostok Amphibia with a Russian Navy missile ship and a Russian Tank on a stainless steel oyster watch band.
any pictures mate? a groupshot of the riseman and the protreks would be cool.
