    Want a G Shock, Watches-UK on eBay (From HK)?

    Hi guys, I currently own a Traser watch, and am after a tough digital watch, and 'think' I have decided on a G Shock Riseman. I found this one on ebay, dispatched from Hong Kong, as I am new to these watches I was hoping someone could give some input on whether it is real or not.
    None of their feedback says they are fake, but I notice that it says 'Full Auto EL Light' where most say 'Multiband 6' -does this mean it is a genuine version without radio controlled time, a Asian version of the same watch... or a fake...?

    Casio Men G SHOCK Solar Riseman Sport Watch NWT G9200 G-9200-1DR | eBay

    I would appreciate any help or advice anyone has!

    Cheers,
    Ed

    Watches-UK is legit. Many members here have purchased from them including myself. As for the Riseman, you're looking at the G9200, which is non-atomic. The GW9200 is the atomic version. Welcome to the forum!!

    They are legit but for an extra £20 - 30 you can get an atomic version from the UK

    Cheers guys, I was hoping to hear something like that! Is this an old discontinued version then or just a different one?
    Also are there any other differences, I tried it on in a shop and thought it looked great, I was worried it would be too big on my small wrists, so want it the same

    It'll be the same as the one you tried on. Again, the one you're looking at from Watches-UK is the non-atomic version, and it's a good price. However, ACG is right, the price of the atomic version has come down quite a bit and you can find one for just a little more. I don't know if any of the funcitons differ between the G and the GW other than atomic time keeping. Maybe somebody more familiar with the Riseman can chime in on the difference (if there is one) in functions.

    No differences in functionality as far as I know.

    Don't forget to take into account the 20% VAT duty on imports.

    They tend to mark these as a gift don't they? I ordered a torch from Hong Kong last month and there was no charge, guess it depends on the seller though...
    The atomic one is still not a bad price , but for me it isn't an essential feature, and I would like the ability to set the clock myself, so on balance this is probably a better option if it means saving 40 quid

    Recieved a new G-shock today from Watches-UK that took only 8days to arrive from payment. Chuffed with that.

    They mark it as a gift yes, I got no customs charges thankfully.

    Was also impressed by their tracking system/links.

    They only seem to do non aatomic watches though unfortunately.
    ONLY EVER OWNED G-SHOCKS...
