Casio Brings Back The Original Baby-G For Its 25th Anniversary

This is the year for us 90’s kids.

The 80’s have had their turn, and now it’s finally our time to shine. From iconic sneakers to live-action Disney cartoon remakes, we’ve been treated to a stream of nostalgia.

If you’re a 90’s child, you may remember yearning for the cutest and coolest digital watch at the time: the Casio Baby-G. It’s what all the cool kids wore at school, right?

In December this year, the Baby-G will turn 25! Casio has decided to mark this occasion by releasing the BGD-525, a commemorative reprise of the very first Baby-G model, the DW-520.

The BGD-525 faithfully reproduces the design of the original Baby-G.  In addition to a semi-transparent case and band, it comes with a simple square form signifying toughness and a protector that symbolizes strong shock resistance, plus a pink “G” logo. The back of the watch case is engraved with a special 25th anniversary logo.

The watch will come in a commemorative pink and purple box to complete the nostalgic 90’s package.

A Brief History Of The Baby-G

Casio’s Baby-G came on the scene in 1994 as the sister brand of its big brother, G-SHOCK. The first model, the DW-520, was based on the concept of “Tough and Cute.” It retained the renowned G-SHOCK shock-resistance, form and design that had won such kudos in street fashion, but was built with a smaller case to better fit women’s slimmer wrists. From its early popularity, the watch has only continued to flourish with updates to its design and expanded features like smartphone app integration– eventually selling around 40 million units.

The BGD-525 retails for RM419 at all G-Factory stores.
