Finally bit the bullet and bought a 9400 Rangeman. Couldn't wait for it to arrive and try it on. I already have 9 other G-Shocks but all of a lower caliber (and old) so it was nice to have something new.
Opening the package, disappointment one: highly damaged outer box. Okay, no biggie for some but I like to keep everything as good as new so that was blow number one.
Well okay, open the tin. Yeah that indeed looks (and feels!) nice. Different resin than most of my other watches, feels more premium. Playing around a bit, decided to let the atomic time to do it's thing.
And yeah, there it was. Disappointment number two, but this time major. Never seen something like this before, looks like glue or paint or something, under the glass, left of the main time display.
Naturally asked for an RMA. Now let's see how matters proceed. Would rather have the camouflage version now, after seeing this Riseman in person, but first wait for this issue to solve.
All in all not the greatest start of the Riseman challenge
