    Strange dw-9100 Riseman on e-Bay.

    I stumbled upon this Riseman on e-bay a few days ago, and have been considering making a bid. http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&rd=1&item=350142824116&ssPa geName=STRK:MEWA:IT&ih=022
    I already have a MIY Riseman, and have just noticed a few problems with this one.
    1 - Module 1663 (MIY Riseman has module 1664)
    2 - The 2 coloured spots a 9 and 3'o clock are green and blue (MIY Riseman are both silver)
    3 - The buttons are silver (My MIY Riseman has 3 grey and 1 yellow buttons...(?))
    On looking on Risefreaks page below

    It looks like the seller has changed the bezel and band off a DW-9100B-2AV.

    Although it would still be a good buy, i thought i'd just give anyone a 'heads-up'

    Looks like the real deal to me but the points you noted certainly make it a bit of a concern. The seller might've made some modifications to it I suspect. I'd definitely enquire about it before bidding. Anyway, worth watching...

    Yeah you're definitely right; it is a DW-9100BJ-2A with the MIY DW-9100YJ-9T clothes

    if its not stated in the auction, i'd avoid it, sellers should be totally honest about what they are selling. i hate 'frankenshocks'
