    Gw9200

    Hi guys, i live in Western Australia (GMT+8) and i was just wanting to know if the atomic time feature of the g-shock riseman GW9200 will function where i live? I am contemplating to where buy it with or without the atomic feature.
    Please get back ASAP.

    Thanks guys, awesome popular forum.

    Moved to main forum.
    I used to list my watches here until I realised it ruined people's Google searches...

    Ga' Day and Welcome to the forum.
    Glad you're here with us.
    The reason why the Casio Oceania web site only lists the G and DW type models (non atomic) and does not show the
    GW and other (atomic) models, is that unfortunately there are no time sync / calibration towers within the range of Australia. I believe Japan is the nearest but yet to far. I'm afraid that the atomic models would be of no use to anyone living in Australia. You're better off getting a tough solar edition if you're looking for extra features.

    Any Riseman has the full support of the G community here. You can't go wrong with one (unless it's a fake, but that's another Ebay-related story!). The pic of the auction you showed is of a correct Riseman.

    Several Aussies have reported their atomics synched in Australia. Check out post #39 in this thread from a poster is Brisbane whose watch synchs every night.:

    @ veolia,

    good choice, you are better off with the non-atomic G-9200, since the GW-9200 wouldn't sync anyway.

    there is a small difference between west and east australia, nothing special - only about 4000 kilometers....


    cheers

    Re: Gw9200

    There is very little price difference between g9200 and gw9200. Are there any functional difference? is g9200 solar? I'd still get the gw9200 if there are no functional advantages in g9200 because if you travel overseas gw9200 will be able to sync with its multi-6.
