Casio BABY-G Pikachu BA-110PKC
Casio Computer Co., Ltd., in collaboration with The Pokémon Company, announced today a new addition coming to the BABY-G line of women’s shock-resistant watches, the BA-110PKC, featuring the fan-favorite Pokémon, Pikachu, from the globally popular entertainment franchise.
Though Casio designates the BABY-G line as a women’s collection, it remains a popular one with teenagers, including boys. The collection is also popular among serious G-SHOCK collectors who often also have a corollary BABY-G collection. We think even this very pale pastel pink will not deter male collectors from making a beeline to acquire one.
Last year, to celebrate BABY-G’s 25th year, Casio issued a collaboration model featuring Pikachu, the 25th Pokémon in the Pokédex. That anniversary model employed a dot-painting style reminiscent of video game art in the 90s, when BABY-G and Pokémon first released, and the Pikachu design elements throughout the whole digital watch were well-received around the world.
Interesting that Casio decided to do two tie-ups with Pokémon, and have both feature the character Pikachu. The first BGD560PKC-1, released in 2019 was more sober and restrained. And this new Pikachu is more elaborated, with its pastel pink body and many details embedded in the design. As far as we know, both designs will be offered at the same time.
This second collaboration is an analog-digital watch with an outdoor theme, representing the active image of the BABY-G brand. The entire BA-110PKC band showcases a camouflage pattern and female Pikachu with a heart-shaped tail. The Pikachu design is infused with subtle details like the silhouette of the pink tail on the strap keeper and the Pikachu image etched on the case back. The hour and minute hands also evoke the face of Pikachu, a playful touch that will delight the wearer whenever they check the time.
This unique model comes in special packaging inspired by the iconic Poké Ball, adding to the unique experience of owning this Pikachu-themed watch.
This BABY-G Pokemon collaboration model will be launching on 19 Feb at all G-SHOCK stores and on 26 Feb online at https://www.g-shock.sg/
