I recently received a test unit of the new Casio Riseman GW-9200. Here are some photos of the new top of the line G-Shock. This new model now has 6-band atomic timekeeping, meaning it can automatically calibrate the time as long as it is about 1800 miles from one of the 6 atomic clocks; Colorado, Germany, Japan, Japan, England or China.

Overall, I really like the G-Shock line and I especially like the newer shape, which is slightly smaller and more ergonomic than the Classic G-Shock profile. Unfortunately, some of the functions can be hard to use. I prefer functions that do not require reading any manuals. Regardless of the interface, the Riseman is a pretty good value at $220.

Functions include a Barometer, Altimeter, Stopwatch (1/100th of a second accuracy), World Time (for 33 cities), 5 daily alarms, Electroluminescent backlight, solar-powered quartz movement and atomic calibration.

The watch is 200 meters water resistant and features a black resin strap with metal pin buckle.
