    GW9200 with outer case removed

    I haven't stripped this one all the way down yet, but I've taken the outer case off.

    dudegalea, at it again!

    Man, that is one dirty Riseman...

    Notice any similarities with the PAW yet?

    Hi Dude,

    Actually what I expected. It looks pretty much like the way the case of the new Mudman is made up.

    Cheers,

    On second thought (afterr a small search)....

    The Mudman actually look very different (and different from what I remembered). I found this old pic of my naked Mudman:

    What does the "flash" indicator mean? I don't believe that is on the atomic version.

    Hi BenL,

    Actually this is a function found on most 1994 to 2000 models. Somehow it was absent for some time, but found back on the new Mudman. If activated, the EL backlight flashes when an alarm is heard (so also at the hourly chime). You also can do funny things with it. If you search in the images section for "beep beep flash flash" you might find a photo of a lot G-Shocks with the Flash function activated

    Cheers,

    Sjors

    Believe it or not, that's just general house/office cruft. I don't tend to do much rolling in the mud these days, since I stopped skateboarding back in 2000. (I stopped because I was getting too old to take the pain of falling off, which I did a lot because I was never very good.)

    Not really, though the pressure sensor looks very familiar.

    Hi,
    just like I thought - the buttons are definitely the weak spot of the Riseman - the crevice between the buttons and the bezel is just too big and dust and dirt will get under the bezel easily. Besides the buttons are so soft I already managed to get an indention on the mode button by pressing it with my fingernail - if only they would have made the case of the Riseman similar to that of the Muddie or given it steel buttons like the old-school Gs - that would have made it much more durable I think.

    Greetings, Sedi

    Actually, I was thinking of you when I took the outer case off!

    A muddie version of this watch would be quite something.
