So I'm a long time stalker of your forum-- I think it's the best of its kind. I get all my opinions and advice from here. I finally decided to pull the trigger and register today.
I have a couple of pretty expensive watches and I gotta tell you-- nothing compares to a good old Casio Pathfinder or G-Shock.
So here's what happened last week that got me here-- I was in Greece in July. I took two watches with me--
-My PAW1500...to play with the altitude feature in the plane...to play with the Atomic feature-- cool to pick up time from the UK instead of USA.... And to play with the temperature feature while snorkelling (water temp)
-My Rolex GMT Master II... For dress occasions. I don't think I wore it once! Lol
So needless to say, I have a new appreciation for Casios. I decided I should add a g-shock to my collection. I ordered the G5600nv. The watch looked so cool in pictures. I received it on Thursday and I was heart broken to see just how small it was. It's not tiny or anything, and I'm not some huge wristed person, but I was expecting something that felt like my paw 1300 and 1500 and as you guys are probably smirking right now-- it didn't. Anyhow.... I can't say the watch isn't beautiful cause it is-- especially with the reverse LCD -- even though I can't see squat on it!!
I'm pretty sure I've never sent anything back and I wasn't gonna start now. I added it to my watch box and chalked it up as a 150 dollar lesson. I'm certain I'll wear it occasionally.
The dilemma was, I still hadn't satisfied my itch for a new watch. I spent all last night trying (through your forum and YouTube) to determine THE best g-shock for me. I narrowed it down to various versions of the 9000-9100-9200 and 9300 series. My final choice-- the GW9200-1. I just ordered it from Amazon and after adding the fastest shipping option to Canada, it came to just under 200 with duties etc. it will be here by Wednesday at noon.
Can anyone please give me their opinions / experiences with the Riseman? I know there are tons of posts on that watch so don't flame me for asking. I've read them all-- I need more to keep me going till Wednesday-- it's only Saturday.
Keep up the good work!!
