I won these on a single max bid this morning.

Luckily with the Mudman I can still get resins, (just checked TikTox).

The Terje Haakonsen Riseman looks in pretty decent used shape.

I'm sure that a couple of new batteries will sort them out. Seller's photos:

Well, good news and bad.

The Riseman has a bad case of resin rot. As I'll virtually never be able to source a new bezel for it, and will have to spend loads if I do, it's going to go to a new home. That's already just been arranged as I speak, so thanks to a fellow f17'er for that!

The Mudman is going to be a keeper. I have actually always steered away from these, but in the hand it's actually a nice little watch!

I just need new resins and it will be good to go. Tiktox have some so I'll order today.

Both watches cleaned up nicely, the Mudman had definitely been well used!!

Here's some pics of both:

Those mudmans are really great models, own one 9010 a couple of years ago and regret selling it...
Only downsize is the protection for the back plate, that with a few ours of wear can hurt you're wrist, for me was kind of annoying!

Oh really? That's not good!

I don't wear my G's tight so hopefully it will be ok.

Yeah, that was my experience with those models, as you see the back resin as a roughness in the four corners, the one on the top left our right with the watch facing you, rubbing against the bone in the wrist was not a good feeling for me!

So here we go.....

New resins from TikTox arrived and installed today. Just about brand new looking .

Like I mentioned, I've never had one before and actually it's a really comfortable, nice fitting and good looking little G!!

Looks great @sodamonkey, love those and have been tempted many times just always found something else. Maybe next time :unsure:
Thanks mate 👍

I'm surprised I like it TBH as I've obviously seen loads when trawling Ebay and have always thought they looked a bit odd somehow so have skipped past them without fail. I bought this pair for the 9100 really, with a thought to flip the 9000. Funny how it's turned out the complete opposite way😂

Nice

I had a Riseman back in 2006. I was enamored with both the Wademan and the Riseman. Once I got them both (regular production Riseman and ARTI Wademan), I was underwhelmed by both and quickly sold them on

Sitting in a fairly dark room at work and I just found out that on these, not sure if others do it, the lettering around the display also lights up.

Pretty cool feature

My camera has made the lettering look the same colour as the actual backlight, but to the naked eye it's all white apart from Mudman and Water 200M Resist, which are yellow.
