A watch best suited for international travel, the BGA-190 shows it belongs with the Baby-Gs!
The BGA-190 was created for the travelling woman. With a world map face design, it is a unique watch, which concentrates on one aspect and makes it the center of attention. Where other Casio watches were “Jack of all trades”, this is a master of one.
Gloss black with pink and purple hour markers, the BGA190-1BD has blue and pink hands, shaped like a jet. The hour markers look like they’re about to jump out at you, but what also catches your attention is the pink display with what looks like a miniature copy of your main screen, just above the 6th hour marker.
That pink window is the world time window, specifically set to another city or even a country. The most unique feature though, is at the press of a button, the times swap. So if you travel to one specific city/time zone, instead of always having to change the time, simply press a button and you’re there.
The BGA-190 is unique, there’s no doubt about that. For more features, please scroll below.

Nice in theory review by Cheryl A on 30/11/2016
It's a good looking watch, no doubt about it, and features like the hand shift (which lets you move the hands away from the digital screen and back again after a few seconds) are really usefull to have. I don't mind all the different colours, but the black background makes it hard to see, even at night when I press the backlight button, the light sometimes doesn't shine brightly enough.
Third watch in this series review by Jamie M on 23/11/2016
I got the yellow and blue, I just had to get this one as well! It looks great and easy to read (well easy-ISH, the digital time is still a little hard to see).
The time swapping feature is nuts (in a good way!) I just change the smaller dial to whatever city I'm in now, press a button and that becomes my main display. Then I press it again when I'm back home, and I get Melbourne time. Great idea!
Great mix of colours! review by Cat B on 23/11/2016
I love this watch! The black and pink go so well together so I can wear it wherever I want! Even go swimming with it since it's water resistant. Found out the hard way though that I shouldn't go in the shower with the watch, but that's my fault for not reading the warnings. Great overall!
