    b-cross (b-x) g-type nylon band replacement for my Raysman

    Found some kind of nylon band by unknown brand. There in Japan.

    What brand is it? As for it seems to be japanese, as long as there is no such bands on ebay, and google not so talkative as usually was. This may helps someone to recognize the brand.

    Any help? Looking for good and easy-quick-install band replacement for my Raysman.



    =story for wondering=

    I love Raysman, it's my favorite and I wanted to wear it till death (it's), if it possible.
    I permanently wore it for year and half or so (in all conditions), then skin under the band started to itch all of a sudden. Situation with my skin was getting worse as long as I was wearing my Raysman. When I took them off, skin healed up by itself. I spoke to doctor (she was a top beetch), she told me not to wear my watch, but I can't!

    However, condition of my skin on left or right wrist (I tried on right too) gets worse pretty fast, so I was forced to remove my beloved Raysman. Now wearing my good ol' DW-069 temporarily.

    But I'm searching a way to wear them in any way. Since stainless steel or nylon bands does no harm, I decided to stick with nylon g-shock street style band.

    P.S. I'm going to continue this medical issue about my skin decease later.

    Looks like a generic brand to me.

    Basically, you could use any G-shock double velcro with aftermarket adaptors or the ones from one of those double velcro/nylon strap watches. so maybe you can source a beat up G-lide on the bay and only use the adaptors and strap?

    Re: b-cross (b-x) g-type nylon band replacement for my Raysman

    Thanks. Now I'm assuming, that subj is really noname band. Bad choice, I guess.

    Okay. Сan you, guys, please, advice where to buy adapters (original ones) and plain black velcro strap in one place? I need black one real bad! I found necessary parts in UK (tiktox and watchbattery), but tiktox ran out of stock for now and both of them doesn't ship overseas, what's bad for me. Casiosalesandservice.com seems to work, but got same delivery problem.

    Ebay has a couple of bands, but wrong color. Same with Yahoo!, but there I can buy vintage x-treme adapters. However, I'd like to buy everything in one place.

    Appreciate any help. Really don't want to buy Mr-G. x)

    No-name brand doesn't always mean bad.

    Nice news! Hope, it'll be new, but I'm interesting anyway.

    - possibly, but I rather bet on proved quality. :)

    I'm wondering why, after two years of wear, you would start to be affected by your watch? Could there be something under the band (chemical, allergen) that is causing this? Or is the band breaking down and releasing some sort of chemical that is causing the rash?

    Dunno! I'd like to know myself!

    I thought about some sorts of chemical influence, but I didn't put my watch in any kind of aggressive environment, besides I wore other Gs for such long period before, and everything was fine! Oh, no! It's some kind of curse! :-O

    Just kidding, seems to be a health glitch. All kinds of glitches surrounds me all my life. But this one is too much! x) Should try to put on my Gaussman back, I guess.

    Try some hydrocortisone cream for a day or two. You don't need a prescription for a small tube and it might well resolve the isse. Skin sensitivity can be triggered by all kinds of random things, and the reaction has a habit of carrying on even when the trigger is removed. Hydrocortisone can effectively turn off the switch.
    I used to list my watches here until I realised it ruined people's Google searches...
