Casio Baby-G MSG-400 Series

The representative of the new generation Baby-G with a steel case and elegant design. The design of the dial is very similar to the 110 series, but the engineers completely redesigned the case in favor of elegance – now MSG is a cross between the classic women’s Sheen and shock-resistant sports Baby-G. The combination of two materials – steel and polyurethane not only gives a significant advantage in resistance to mechanical stress, but also looks stylish and modern. Double time on the dial will allow you to see time in two time zones at the same time without having to activate a separate world time mode – for those who often travel to the same place. The watch also has a stopwatch, timer, alarm clock, calendar and dial backlight.

Official Marketing Focus from Casio

From the BABY-G G-MS lineup of watches for the active and sophisticated woman of today comes a selection of brilliant design models. The generous use of gold and pink gold color metal parts creates a collection of models that add a touch of brilliant charm to the feminine wrist. Metal is also used for the face rings, band ring, and buckle, and the cool, metallic gear-like look is great for adult women.
Function-wise, these models come with Dual Dial World Time, which shows the current time in another time zone using a small dial at 9 o’clock.
All of this and much more provides plenty of support for the world-traveling woman on the go.

Enjoy our Baby-G MSG-400 Watch Review

The dial is reminiscent of the GA-110 and BA-110 series – the same hour markers, the same multilayer structure and very similar hands. Thanks to the golden hour markers, the readability of the analogue part of the dial does not raise questions. What can not be said about the digital display – all the same, small numbers and letters on the inversion display are also not quite clear. At night, the Super Illuminator saves the situation only partially – the LED is weak, even the arrows with marks are difficult to see, not to mention the electronic window. The arrows have a luminescent coating, but there is not much sense from it. Although all this is my personal opinion, maybe someone will not notice such subtleties. Read Full Review →
