Casio recently announced the release of the newest addition to its family of Baby-G shock-resistant watches – the new BGD-565KT.
Code-name aside, it features the ever-popular character Hello Kitty from Sanrio.
This special watch marks both the 50th anniversary of Hello Kitty and the 30th anniversary of Baby-G.
The collaboration watch is based on the BGD-565, which inherits the design of the first Baby-G model.
The new watch is given the white, red, and blue colour scheme of Hello Kitty’s debut designs from 1974. Red and blue band rings accent the design’s base tone of white.
The band, which is derived from bio-based resin, is covered in printed faces of the charming, animated character from the 1970s.
When the backlight is on, her eyes, nose, and whiskers appear on the watch LCD. A ribbon design on the dial completes the whole look.
In addition to a total of 50 Hello Kitty details covering the entire watch, this collaboration model comes in special packaging that includes a cloth pouch inspired by the watch design.
Highlighting the original look of this sweet Sanrio character, this Baby-G exudes a retro charm.
The Hello Kitty Collaboration BGD-565KT watch is priced at $179 which will be available for purchase at G-SHOCK retailers and online from 17 January 2024.
