    Baby G Qs

    I seem to recall that when I first saw Baby Gs a few years ago that they were somewhat smaller than they are now? Is that true?

    My 10yo daughter's timex digital kids watch fogged up after she jumped off the dock at the lake and it is malfunctioning a bit. I told her that I'd get her a watch where that will never be a problem. But at about 40mm for the crown I'm not sure a Baby G will fit/look okay on her wrist. Then there's the issue if the strap will fit at all.

    If there are smaller older Baby Gs I'll be putting up a WTB post. Well, will probably be putting up a WTB post regardless. But it has to have a dolphin icon. Blue I think, too.

    No, my three wife's older Baby G's from 1998, 2000 and 2003 are pretty much the same size as the two new ones from this year. Current pull-through straps fit perfectly into older watches.

    You'll likely want to look out for a BG-169A type watch, then... (the beautiful blue one is the 2VER model).

    In my opinion the size of the Baby-G's were never changed. If I'm right even the DW-500 was a miniaturized DW-5600C. For a 10 year old, get a version with crystal protector (the somewhat older versions).
