    Meaning of Baby-G (for you)?

    What do you understand/think under the series name "Baby-G" ? In the past (before i was a WIS), i always understood it as "baby G-Shock", meaning "a smaller version of the usual chunky G-Shocks". They were usually quite smaller, more vibrantly colored or transparent, but not necessarily girly. Then i noticed "Baby-G" was suppose to mean "baby girl" aka girly watch. But i still like quite few Baby-G models, despite being a dude and i still kinda follow the old understanding of this Casio sub-brand name.

    How did you look at Baby-G sub-brand name in the past and now?
    It doesn't matter how much the watch costs, it only matters if it makes your heart tick.

    Sorry to tell the truth, but I never paid attention to the Baby-G serie, past and present.

    For me, that's always been a series of smaller Gs, made for girls as they usually have smaller wrists.
    There must be nice colors in those as well, but I personally like G-Shocks for their size, so I never look at Baby Gs, except as a gift. For me, already the old Mudman is too small, so no point in looking into a series of specifically small designs.
    I think its a cool idea, however, to offer this concept.

    Some models might be nice in shape and color, but I would have problems wearing watch with ''baby'' writen on it

    They have some more manly models in baby-g line, but not for me personally.

    baby-g for me was allways small girly (for young girls [10-16]) watches which looked not really as nice or durable/stable than g-shocks.

    i did never think about them as female smaller g-shock like watches for adult woman.. call me crazy but i think adult woman can wear g-shock too.. ;)

    Question: what does WIS actually stand for?

    Well, there are Baby-G models that are 43+ mm in diameter. Not exactly small... but yeah, mostly they are much much smaller than normal G-Shocks.
