Geek Girl Manila Likes Casio Baby-G Watches

Another thing I’m quite obsessed with, are watches.

I’m particularly fond of casual, sporty-looking chronograph watches with HUGE faces and my favorite brands are ToyWatch, Ice Watch and Casio Baby-G/G-Shock.

Currently, my everyday watch is a Casio Baby-G, the G-MS MSG300C-7B2 model. I bought it from Amazon two years ago when my sister went to the US for vacation.

I remember buying this for $130 at Amazon.

Now, my brother-in-law is going on a US trip very soon and I’m thinking this is the best time to look if Baby-G has any new models. (I can save on the shipping costs and just wait for my brother-in-law to come back home, haha!)

Lo, and behold! They do!

Aren’t they preeeeeeeetty. (Yes, even at the age of 28, I love rainbows and hearts. So sue me. I’m clutching desperately at my youth, lol.)

BGA101-1B – Gloss black resin band with multi-colored numbered watch face

BGA116-7B – Hero model; matte, white resin band with multi-colored numbered watch face and metal accents

BGA101-8B – Transparent grey resin band with multi-colored numbered watch face

While I really love how cute the watches are, I unfortunately won’t buy this model because of the strap.

Since I have very skinny arms, I only like wearing watches that have link bands. Watches with link bands fit my skinny arms better since they are more ‘adjustable’.

So too bad this particularly model has resin straps :( I would have bought the silver one in a heart beat.
