    6900 versus Riseman?

    I love my Riseman and Mudman. Want to pull the trigger on a 6900 but am concerned about the digits being too small. I've never seen the 6900 next to any other G-shock. Are the digits on a 6900 smaller than those on a Mudman or Riseman? Thanks!

    I made a pair of really quick shoots:





    As can be seen the Riseman has bigger and clearer digits.

    Notice though the DW-6900 are not quite that unclear as my picture made it to be. I think it is the mirror digits that makes them look extra fuzzy in the camera flash.

    The 9000 mudman's Time/Date digits are taller but slightly narrower than the 6900's.

    The mudman's Day alphabets are significantly larger than the 6900's.

    Indeed, regarding the 6900CS, I get a shock sometimes when I thought the screen has blacked out, but that's because I view it from a certain angle. Because of the reflective font, the numbers may just seem to flush into the green background. Like a case of 'now you see it now you don't'. Reminds me of those childhood toy books when you can view different images, looking from different angles.
