To celebrate BABY-G's 25th Anniversary, Casio has collaborated with The Pokémon Company to come up with a special edition of the BABY-G watch based on the 25th Pokémon in the Pokédex; Pikachu! The watch comes with plenty of details, including how the watch reflects the style of the original Pokémon Red and Pokémon Blue video games released in 1996 in an edgy way. The numbers “0:25” are printed on the band loop, while on a black base, the watch band is decorated with neon, polygon-style Pikachu lightning marks, and Poké Balls. The design of the dial references the original game screen, giving a very 90’s feel. A polygon-style Pikachu appears when the EL backlight is turned on, and Pikachu’s rear view is engraved on the back cover. Even the packaging is specially shaped like a Poké Ball! Nice!
The model is now available at all G-Factory stores and authorised dealers in Malaysia and is retailing at RM579.
