The Casio Men's G-Shock Riseman Alti-Therm Atomic Solar Watch #GW9200-1 is a technical timepiece with athletic style. Featuring a unique three-layer twin sensor that measures altitude, barometric pressure, and temperature, the ability to track information over time, and Multi-Band Atomic Timekeeping, which lets calibration radio signals keep the time display accurate, this watch is ready to take on big adventures. Add Tough Solar Power, an Auto EL Backlight, a world clock featuring 29 time zones, and five daily alarms into the mix, and it's tough to see how you could be more prepared for whatever lies ahead. Also offering a durable mineral window, resin band with buckle clasp, resin case, and digital-quartz movement, this watch is water resistant to 660 feet.
With the launch of its first watch in November 1974, Casio entered the wristwatch market at a time when the watch industry had just discovered digital technology. As a company with cutting-edge electronic technology developed for pocket calculators, Casio entered this field confident that it could develop timepieces that would lead the market.
Today, Casio is focusing its efforts on solar-powered radio-controlled watches: the built-in solar battery eliminates the nuisance of replacing batteries, atomic timekeeping means the users never have to reset the time. Recently, Casio launched a series of Bluetooth watches that sync to the users cell phone to automatically update the time. Casio is always moving time forward.

I did research and came across the G-Shock. I read reviews for different models all over the internet and saw a lot of military personnel (both active and retired) give this watch rave reviews. It had the perfect amount of features (not too much, not too little) and wasn't flashy and followed his dress code for when he wears his Dress Blues and is lighter than it looks.
My brother got it for Xmas 08 and he has no complaints whatsoever. This watch has been subjected to the same abuse as the other (even more now that he is stationed in Afghanistan)and still looks new. The other guys on his base even liked it and went out and bought their own.
My brother says I found the perfect watch and I highly recommend it to others in the military.
UPDATE: May 2015- Two deployments later, he still uses this watch every day! Up close you can see the wear and tear but otherwise it looks fine.
The Riseman is a technological tank: wrapped in a solid, eye-pleasing, and elaborate shield with brushed steel inserts is a high precision measurement instrument that gives very reliable readings of barometric pressure, altitude, temperature as well as reasonably accurate weather patterns. Fascinatingly, the watch gets its energy from the sun (or other minor sources of light, such as a bulb) and is the first watch in the world to synchronize time via radio waves from 6 different atomic clocks around the world (depending on your location). Other handy features: 24+ world times, 24hr stopwatch, 24hr countdown and 5 alarms.
The use of screen space in the main timekeeping mode is exceptional as it includes, besides the time, day & date, a 2-hourly reading of atmospheric pressure within the "red eye". This gives you an immediate idea of where the weather is going and adds a totally new spin on owning a watch that measures atmospheric pressure. The time is also displayed in all modes (except the altim.)
I found the Riseman extremely comfortable to wear throughout the day even in hot/humid weather thanks to the design of the band and despite its important size it is rarely invasive. The overall feel of the watch in your hands, and on your wrist, conveys the high quality of the materials used to achieve toughness as well as its unique look.
With its Gotham City inspired design, its cutting-edge features and its "battle proven" armor, the G-Shock GW9200 Riseman is definitely destined to become a milestone and a classic Master of G.
1. solar recharge
2. atomic syncronizing
3. multi band
4. Able to read weather (this thing actually predicts the weather..cool!)
I needed an every day watch and this was perfect. I was really surprised when I took it out of the box and it was completely setup and ready to go. No need to go through lengthy setups with timezones and calanders. Not only that, but I'll NEVER have to do this to this watch. I also should note that it even syncs itself nightly. The manual suggests leaving it on a window facing south. However, Im able to just leave it anywhere in my house and it recieves.
This was also a test to see if a solar capable watch would work for me since I work in a "closed" area in a barely lit computer lab 9 hours a day and I rarely am in the light. So far, its been going like a champ after a month or so of daily use with the auto backlight on. It seems to get all the recharge it needs on the weekends when Im out. So solar test passed.
Im also not fond of big watches, and I was rather concerned this watch would look and feel big. Well, its extremely comfortable. The band is niceley adjustable and the watch is VERY light weight for a watch loaded with so many functions. Its very durable, I've already banged it quite a few times working around the house and on my car but this thing is indestructable. As for size, it is a bit clunky but thats the character of the watch. It in no way looks abnormal on me and I have very small wrists (computer geek here)
Time keeping is exceptional, having maintained the time to the the exact second for the last three weeks. This may not seem like much to some, however where I live out here in the Caribbean, we don't receive time calibration signals. That being said, I have monitored the theremometer, altermeter and barometer functions against readings from my local MET office.
The guys were surprised at the level of accuracy on all three functions and while this watch was not intended to replace dedicated equipment for exploring the outdoors, its certainly useful and can provide a decent backup should your primary equipment fail.I've noticed that wearing the watch gives a differential of +3 degrees Celcius so I've calibrated the thermometer to 3 degrees less to compensate for the difference and is spot on in comparison to my house thermometer. In this way you don't need to take the watch off for 30 minutes to allow it to adjust, in order to read the ambient temperature accurately.
I've used many of the battery demanding functions throught the day and never had issues of the battery running low, bearing in mind that this is an atomic solar watch. Through my daily activities the watch does get some exposure to the sun allowing the battery to be charged up again but definitely no complaints in the power consumption departemnt.
Comfort wise, it fits nicely on the wrist without being overly bulky with a nice wrist presence and slim enough profile.Read more ›

A great watch. Been almost 4 years since I have been using it. Just that it cannot sync to the China server from India. Of course that is too distant. Robust and strong. Read morePublished 4 months ago by Anil Singh
The watch stopped charging after a year and it would not auto-update the time either. It failed today after only 3 1/2 years. Don't buy!!Published 4 months ago by Bernard Rose
I've had this watch now for about 2 years. So far it has performed flawlessly.
I deducted 1 start because the the dial window is easy to scratch. Read more
