    Yes... And? They use very expensive international shipping, so they may as well not exist as far as the op is concerned. Especially considering that Tiktox is also based in the UK and provide free shipping within the UK.

    Adam ... if you've got a 7" wrist or larger ... it's a great watch. If your wrist is smaller than 7", I'd try it on first because you may feel that it's too big.

    If you can't get your hands on one for a 'fitting', then try to find a watch of similar dimension in another manufacturer's line that is available to try on.

    Failing that, cut one out of corrugated cardboard (make it 2 0r 3 layers thick) & put that against your wrist to give you some semblance of what it would be like.

    Also the Rangeman 'Love The Sea & The Earth', a new green gel model, will be released shortly. It may be of interest:

    Re: Should I purchase a Rangeman?

    The day to day wear of this chunk might be to much for some.I,m at a 7 inch wrist and some of my big guns like my gw 1000 had to go,to much wrist bite.maybe a gwm 500/gulfman/or mudman g 9000 would be more practical.

    Cheers
    John

    I write this as an owner of four Rangeman watches (2 negative & 2 positive).
    Exactly WHICH parts do you want to buy? Pacparts still sells pretty much EVERY SINGLE PART from most Rangeman models EXCEPT for their recent "module and LCD" restriction and the "Burning Red" resin, which Casio has restricted on most other models.

    Every replacement part is available for the base model GW9400-1: Casio GW9400-1 Parts and Accessories

    YES YOU SHOULD!
    The best watch i ever own. It's full of futures.
    Learn and use them.
    I wear my Rangeman as a beater a whole day and night.
    THE BEST WATCH.
    YES, Frogman, it has this carmic connection, but Rangeman is simply hands down the best G-shock for me.

    It all depends on your wrist size and the way you wear it. For people with small build the "multi-function button" protector may be a little bit uncomfortable when you bend your palm all the way up, such as doing push-up :). Not big deal, just a little bit.

    What you really should be asking is how many rangeman can I afford? How many colors do I want in my collection? And what can I do to acquire more rangemans?

    Rangeman is big but v comfortable on the wrist. I had never regret to get one and i always wear it... big but cool! Big watch on your wrist is the trend now! Even gals are wearing g-shock as fashion! Go big pal!
