I was wondering if I could have your opinions on the GW9200BW, the negative display black Riseman. I know the Riseman is a highly regarded watch here on these forums and I'm looking for a new watch.
I currently already have a negative display G-Shock (not sure the exact model, it has a square white face with negative display and black resin strap and is atomic solar). However, my current G-shock started to get condensation underneath the crystal after about 1 year of use :-/
I replaced the G-Shock with an automatic Seiko SKX173, another highly regarded watch on these forums. However, even after replacing the stock rubber strap with several different NATOsand ZULUs, I just never felt comfortable with the watch. I also found it really annoying having to reset the watch about once a week or having to wind it back up if I didn't wear it for 2-3 days at a time. BTW if anyone is interested in this watch please PM me because I'm going to be listing it on these forums when I get a chance in the next few days.
I'm now looking for a good solar atomic G-Shock, one I won't have to worry about setting or dying. Also one that will preferably last longer than 1 year without having issues with condensation. I'm loving the look of the GW9200BW and was wondering if it's as highly regarded as the positive display model or if there are certain drawbacks to it.
I've also been attracted to the military-style DW5600MS and G5600KG. However, only the KG is solar and neither has atomic syncing which is important to me. Are there any similar styled watches with the tough solar and atomic syncing? I'd love something similar to the GW5610BC but it seems really overpriced on eBay and I found the GW5610 positive display a little boring looking...
Also, any suggestions as to the best place to purchase the GW9200BW? I've looked on Amazon and there are several third-party sellers offering it there but I've never dealt with any of those 3rd parties. I've also seen this watch offered on ebay by several sellers currently but I'm afraid of fakes. Any suggestions? Thanks!
