Casio Releases New Baby-G Watch with Colorful Black Light Effect - Featuring “Neon Illuminator” for Dial and Hands, Which Glow under the Watch’s Black Light LEDBASEL, March 23, 2011 — Casio Computer Co., Ltd., announced today the release of five new Baby-G shock-resistant watches for women. The new BGA-130/131 models all feature “Neon Illuminator,”* an original visual effect realized using a black light LED combined with special luminous ink.
*The ultraviolet LED offers safety corresponding to the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) standard for Class 1M. However, an optical lens such as a magnifying glass must not be used for direct viewing of the ultraviolet light source.
Casio’s Baby-G casual watches are popular with young women who enjoy fashion trends and choose styles that reflect their individual personalities. Along with the toughness inherited from G-SHOCK, including shock- and water-resistance, the Baby-G brand offers fashion appeal inspired by individualistic styling and creative color use, as well as a range of functions including a stopwatch and World Time. The numerals, dial, and hands of the new BGA-130/131 models are coated with a special fluorescent ink that becomes luminous under the watch’s black light LED. When the watch light is used in a dark location, the face glows with green, pink, and blue, creating a truly individualistic feel.
The new models also employ a larger case, which is a recent trend. The rhythmical positioning of the numerals—which vary in size and have a three-dimensional look—along with an overlapping effect—creates a design with a lot of depth.
The numeral in the 2 o’clock position has been replaced with a heart, while the hour hand is shaped like a ring with a gemstone on it. These fun touches have helped to create a cute Baby-G that can make you smile just by looking at it.
For the pink-on-black BGA-130-1B, the matte black BGA-131-1B, and the white BGA-131-7B, the dots and heart on the minute hand are rendered in fluorescent ink. With the blue BGA-130-2B and the pink BGA-130-4B, the dots on the minute hand are coated with fluorescent ink, and the minute hand has a heart-shaped cut out to show the dial underneath, for a playful feeling.
