    GW-9200MS arrived

    Hi,
    the postman just rang an gave me something ! After selling my GW-9200-1 some time ago I never thought I'd get another Riseman but since all the new atomic Gs seem not to have current time visible in any mode other than time-keeping (this is getting kind of boring Casio ) I thought - 'Well maybe I have to change my mind on the matter.'
    The GW-6900 was flipped after a week when I saw the MIRB Riseman for sale in a German forum - the price was right and I had done business with the member that was offering it before. Since selling my MRG-121 this it now the only JDM model in my line-up. Here are the first q'n'd pics:








    The gray color ist really nice - I like gray and have three pair of grey kicks (two Adidas, one Puma) - so this will fit my wardrobe perfectly .
    But a little shock followed 'cause I did something stupid: when it arrived I noticed that the light-button was almost flush against the case - so I took it apart . Removed strap, back protector and bezel only to find out that the light-button seemed to work just fine :oops:. Putting it back together made me sweat so I didn't take any pictures because that was the farthest from my mind :oops:. I was so afraid to strip the threads of the bezel-screws but now it's back on my wrist and seems to be alright. One thing I know: I'll never again take apart a Riseman - especially a limited edition . btw: I solved the question about the moving sensor. The metal part visible isn't attached to the case but part of the bezel and makes contact with a metal spring.

    Greetings, Sedi
    Cheers

    :thanks guys! I'm still glad I got it pieced back together again. I wonder though how the sensor really works? What does the part do that makes contact to the module with the metal spring?

    Great catch, Sedi! The Risemans aren't my thing but this one is an exception, really nice 'rusty' model

    :thanks for the nice words . This one really looks great. I still wonder why they called it rusty black though? It really isn't black but grey except for the light-button, buckle and sensor sticker .

    Very cool.
    And I learned not to mess with a good thing.
    If it works don't take it apart!
