Casio Malaysia released the BGA-150KT, a special collaboration model with Hello Kitty, a character created by Sanrio Co., Ltd., in its BABY-G line of women’s shock-resistant watches.
The new model is inspired by the Hello Kitty Pink Quilt Series, which trended among young women in Japan in the 1990s, when the BABY-G brand made its debut.
The BGA-150KT is a collaboration model between Hello Kitty, who turns 45 this year, and BABY-G, which is marking 25 years since its introduction.
The new model is based on the BGA-150, whose elegant design features a large round face and metal pieces. The dial of the new BGA-150KT features a quilt-stitch pattern taking after the Hello Kitty Pink Quilt Series that was popular in the 1990s.
The watch features flower-shaped metal pieces that evoke the Hello Kitty of the 1990s while giving it a grown-up look.
To celebrate the anniversaries of both brands, the letter “B” for BABY-G is part of the flower on the dial at the 5 o’clock position (25th minute), while Hello Kitty’s face adorns the dial at the 9 o’clock position (45th minute).
The case back is engraved with a special drawing of Hello Kitty wearing a watch and adorned with a flower featuring the letter “B” for BABY-G.
The packaging for this special model includes an exclusive mini-bag designed in the style of the original Pink Quilt Series from the 1990s, and a stand for displaying the watch.
Both models (BGA-150KT-4BDR & BGA-150KT-7BDR) are now available at all G-Factory store and at RM 699.
