    Question High reflection on Riseman

    Hi all,

    Is it my eyes or is it true that the Riseman is more reflective than other G's?

    When I compared my Riseman to my GD-100, G-6900, G-5600, G-9100 Gulfman and my Protrek PRG-110, it seems to be harder to read because I see a lot more light reflection on the face of the Riseman.

    It's possible as the Riseman's LCD is big, the Hardlex crystal is not anti-reflective coated, and the solar panel greatly contributes to the reflection.

    Not sure about the reflections, but I also found it harder to read compared to many other g-shocks. While at a shop, trying out different g-shocks, I realised that G5600, G9000, and G9100 had the most readable displays. Crisp and clear. Compared to these, Riseman display was a bit hazy and digits were not as crisp.

    I don't notice anything different. All my watch faces reflex.
    The MTG is retired and the 5600 too. Right now, the only working G-Shocks that I use and enjoy are the Riseman GW9200-1 and the GW6900-1

    If I can own a Rolex Submariner I would. I know they are tough too, their homages are tough. Trust me.

    G-Shock MTG930DA-8V, G-Shock GW-5600J-1. G-Shock Riseman GW9200-1, G-Shock GW6900-1

    Hmmm... I was just wondering, has anyone tried to mod this? You know the anti-scratch films on iPods? Maybe we can lay over a piece of the matt type on the riseman's face to cut the glare.

    Can this be done?

    Yeah, I would not see why not. Unless it is a convex crystal like the legacy Riseman and/or Raysman.
    I used to have a piece of the matte film but I think I put it on my GF's iPhone.

    That may be a pretty cool mod!

    Has anybody here diaasembled a Riseman before? I see spare bezels for sale but not for the Riseman. Can the Riseman's bezel be changed or replaced?

    Replaced, yes.
    I used to list my watches here until I realised it ruined people's Google searches...
