So, I purchased a few straps and bezels from Tiktox recently, and wanted to start moving things around. At this time I have two different colored Risemen.

GRescue and MISG.jpg

On the left may I present the G-Rescue G9200R-4 and on the right the Men In Smokey Grey G9200GY. Watch the times as well in case you are curious how long it takes. First, have you ever wondered what a positive display MISG Riseman would look like?

Positive MISG.jpg

Not bad at all. Men In Burning Red on MISG.

And with positive display

Negative display Men In Ice White (I think)

Neg MIIW.jpg

That turned out cool! Also like the orange tie in of underside, button, and ring

Also turned out nice. I was hoping the display would look more orange like when it was wearing the MIBR clothing.

Negative display Men In Earth Blue.

You'll see the rest of this pic shortly. But I gotta say, I think this came out great!

Looks cool, again if the face had more of an orange tint, I think this could have been spectacular.

And finally, the Riseman Pegleg. You had to see this one coming! OK, no stars, but a satisfactory combo.

All fun. Not sure what other combos I'd like to try out, but I can see enjoying this for a while . .. . requests or comments feel free to post up

That last pic of "Pegleg" prompts me to stand up and touch hand to heart (as in Rise, Man)...

Theorically it's doable like other Gs.

But the Riseman's module is much harder to take it out because of the sensor's flat cable.

If you make a wrong move you will lose the whole watch, not just the warranty.

You have a nice collection of Riseman, I take it that you have 2 risemans and you have different "clothes" to dress them up with? I am worried about the wear and tear of the screw threads if I screw the screws in and out although I am also planning to order some parts to mix and match. Do you foresee a problem with that?

You can see from the photos that he didn't put the screws in.

Thank you everyone!

@lvt: it was your riseman that actually started me down this road!

@wind_talker: i don't plan on swapping resing that often. I don't foresee big wear going on.

@G-fob: when I bought MIRO resin tiktox had a sale going so I bought one of each set he had. Definitely cheaper than purchasing those 3 riseman :eek:

@Boomer: I'm definitely looking for a combo for 4th of July. Still unsure.

sent with aloha

whoever up the thread asking to make the riseman display to negative: DON'T DO IT since you are not experienced, THE SENSOR cable for temp. is very thin (it connects the module from the right iron button stuck with the case, you will break it, DON'T EVER DO IT

Hey mate... Chris actually just swapped the bands and bezel. Just for clarrification, he did not change the DISPLAY. They are actually 2 watches (MIRO and MISG) that he swapped the bands and bezel which is pretty easy to do. If my memory serves me right, he was able to do the swap in 5 minutes which I took around another 10 minutes. :-! Chris may also be able to enlighten you on how he did it if you're planning to go this route.

Thanks for your kind words, but now you had your "revenge" :-d, I'm actually thinking how to have a white bezel and a blue strap to make the tricolour Riseman like your photo (I only have one watch) :-x
