    Riseman GW9200-1 or Gulfman GW9100-1

    I am looking to expand my G-Shock horizons and would like some feedback on both of these models. I like the asthetics of both models but would like some positives and negatives from any of y'all who own them. Thanks in advance!! J.J.
    Just for fun I am gonna post a poll as well;)

    While Gulfman GW9100-1 is a good looking watch, IMHO Riseman is a better looking watch, PLUS you get the additional features of Alt, Bar, Temp and you see the time displayed in every function but the Altimeter.

    Agreed. I like the Gulfman, but the Riseman is a knockout.

    Seems that way already Greggy D. But the reason for the post was to see why everyone would choose one over the other. So to everyone who has voted already, please let me know why you would choose one over the other. Thanks;)

    I would go with GW9200 Riseman
    • it is more comfortable to me
    • it lives up to its name of "Riseman" with Riseman features. (Gulfman without tide graph or moon phase is just lacking to me)
    • 24hr CDT
    • multi band 6 is a plus (simple math, 5 < 6 )
    get the GW9100 Gulfman only if you must have titanium and needs STW to time more than 24hr

    Blowout, no doubt. The Gulfman is sweet, but IMO the Riseman is the sweetest. For me, not only does the Riseman have all the great functions but also the great looks...

    I sure feel like a minority here but I would definitely go for the Gulfman. It looks just gorgeous and has everything you need in a watch! I think (and then I´ll duck and cover!) that the Riseman looks hideous and if you want the alti, baro etc there´s ABC-watches that look so much better and really, really can take a beating even though they aren´t 'G-rated'. About the tidegraph issue on the GW9100 I´ll just sigh and refer to all the threads already posted in the forum. Don´t need it, don´t want it... Just my 0.02€.

    Re: Riseman GW9200-1 or Gulfman GW9100-1

    I own both. Riseman For the Freaking WIN!

    Reasons:

    1. More comfortable
    2. Date/Day on same screen
    3. Time shown on most functions
    4. 5th button for light (personal preference)
    5. Better use of real estate
    6. Better font (personal preference)
    7. Riseman has its own superhero functions. Atomic Gulfman was stripped of his (tide/moon).

    All in all, you can't go wrong with either. I just received PJS's Atomic Gulfman this past weekend and have been wearing it since. I've warmed up to it a bit more since my initial impressions. BUT, for about the same price point, the Riseman completely destroys the Atomic Gulfman.
