I’ve always had an interest in gadgets, GPS, PDA, phones, you know, those small little electronic wonders. When it comes to electronic watches, I had my eyes on Casio’s Protek series for quite some time (they come with compass, temperature/barometer, and altimeter.) However, since I am cursed with a small wrist, wearing a Protek is akin to a 10 year old riding on Harley, it just wouldn’t work.

Casio G-Shock Riseman G-9200

The G-Shock series, on the other hand, were just nice in size as well as durability, but a little lacking in electronic wizardry. I had a G-Shock more than 10 years ago and loved it, but now I am looking for something that can do more.

Then came the Riseman G-9200, the G-Shock that incorporate twin sensors, with the ability for temperature/barometer as well as altimeter measurements. The little gadget also runs on solar power, protected with 200M water resistance, packed electro-luminescent backlight, world time, countdown timer, stop watch, shock resistance. However, it doesn’t cook dinner for you.

Casio G-Shock Riseman G-9200

I knew I was going to buy it the moment I read about it on the forums. I waited patiently until the international version is released (Japan version is GW-9200 with waveceptor) and called my regular watch shop. Collected this gem a couple of weeks ago and now I have my 2nd G-Shock (I messed up the first one after trying to change the lume battery myself.)

Casio G-Shock Riseman G-9200 case back

I am still struggling to remember how to operate all the functions, loving the altimeter as it even allows me to record and track my ascent to my KLCC office. The temperature function is pretty neat, and I can even “predict” weather (somewhat dubious accuracy) with the barometer. One other nifty feature is the auto EL function where I can set the back light to lit up whenever it is dark and the watch is tilted to my head.

Visually, I also like the bat-mobile look alike styling, very tough and purposeful. The case back has a little dragon engraved, symbolizing it’s oriental origin.

Nice right? Now my trusted Orange Monster and Nighthawk will be getting a little less wrist time to make way for the Riseman

    Peter Tan,
    Yah! I rove it! :P

  6. Great looking watch. But I don’t wear a watch… (ya, how I am PA without a watch is still a big mystery…)

  7. It doesnt cook dinner?
    Surely it has the function to order takeaway pizza when your blood suger drops below a the healthy level, right?

  8. Wow, I love the watch so much.. I want one.. :)

  9. look very cool… how much izzit?

    wanna exchange link? slumbeR@J@!

  10. *jaws drop to floor*

  11. Walauu… cool watch!

  12. Alice Teh,
    Hahaha, at least the handphone tells time. :D

    shag,
    Very smart! :P

    oOFooi,
    Get one! It’s awesome.

    slumberaja,

    Mark,
    Thanks thanks. :)

  13. i like something i can’t pronounce Maurice Lacroix, is that how you spell it? (can’t even spell it correctly…geezzzz *slap me*)

  14. hey,just google. i got lucky. tats the right spelling… *still…tat doesnt mean i got money to pay for it though…

  15. woahh… that’s one wicked watch… I want one, but I’ve got 2 G-Shocks already wor… :(
    arghhhhh….

  16. Lorna,

    An upperclass twit/tryhard Bangsarian would probably pronounce it “Mour-risse Leh-crua” with sweet in your mouth. *(the “cr” sounds like a “q”)

    e.g. Excuse me Sir, can I enquire as to the price of the black and silver Mour-risse Leh-crua watch on the upper left shelf?

    I much prefer “Moris Lakroik”
    e.g. Excu me, the nice black & metallic Moris Lakroikwatch how much ah?

    Afterall its your money. If you’re going to buy an expensive watch, at least have some fun doing it.

  17. The watch looks good, but I don’t wear watches except during workout sessions when I wear one with a timer. Rely on my handphone and the position of the sun for the time : )

  18. lorna,
    Hahaha, buy buy buy! Can always afford wan :P

    dreckker,
    What’s wrong with having a 3rd one? hehehe

    shag,
    Very true, very true. :D

    foongpc,
    Wah, how about when it rains, or at night? heehee

  19. shag, appreciate that alot. but i think ahlian like me won’t be able to carry the watch well.

    probably just go for g-shock, like ky :P

  20. g-shock rocks!!! but mine sudah 11 years old!! LOL…. sudah tukar!! haha… but am gonna get back one more chun and hi-tech one sometimes laters… hehehe =D

  21. lorna,
    Ahlian? OK I call you ahlian from now on. ;)

    andrew,
    Do it, make it happen! :D

  22. this is definitely a tough looking one

  23. Riseman? Sounds like an interesting name – rise man! Haha..anyways, you showing off the watch or your photography skills?

  24. Ahlian so what?
    Money is money. Match the Moris Lakroik with some Sg Wang duds & coloured hair. People will think you’re following Paris* Hilton fashion.

    * Paris (the city) in french sounds like “Pareee”.

  25. oh man. this is all time classic. cant believe its like so evergreen this G-shock shit… love to have one.

  26. johnny ong,
    Yes! :D

    eiling,
    I’m learning, learning. ;)
