Casio recently introduced some of its most popular G-Shock styles into its Baby-G line, shrinking them down to a size that girls and women could find more appropriate and comfortable to wear. But what is the difference in size? Are they that much smaller or are they simply slimmed down a bit? Below we have a side by side comparison of the popular Casio G-Shock GA110 Series watch to a Baby-G BA110 Series watch – basically the same style, just different size:
Overall the difference is quite apparent as far as the case width goes. The Baby-G model has less details on the dial, but overall Casio did a great job in shrinking this watch without losing too much of its appeal. The G-Shock model has a 51.2mm case width (a bit over 2 inches) while the Baby-G only has a 43.4mm case width (approximately 1 3/4 inches) cutting it down a little over 1/4 inch in size.
However, as far as the thickness goes, to keep 3-Dimensional design, it doesn’t appear Casio could sacrifice much of the overall thickness of the watch. The G-Shock has an 16.9mm case thickness while the Baby-G is only about 1mm smaller with a 15.8mm case thickness.
Overall, this is one of Casio’s most appealing designs with gear-like analog hands, 3-Dimensional dial with digital display and sharp color contrasts representing the latest trends in sport and street fashion. If you haven’t considered purchasing a Casio watch before because you thought they were “cheap” you are mistaken. Although you can buy some inexpensive Casio digital watches at department stores, their G-Shock, Baby-G and Pro Trek collections are at the top of their product line with an integration of technology, functionality and style at an affordable price. Casio timepieces from these collections are also highly sought after by the military – yep, that’s right, many of our troops are sporting a Casio watch.
