G-Shock U.K. revealed the upcoming Pikachu x Baby-G BA-110PKC-4A collaboration watch. The yellow mouse-like Pikachu is the best-known species of Pokémon and the brand’s mascot. The Pokémon media franchise is celebrating its 25th anniversary in 2021, with Pokémon day taking place on February 27.
For this second collaboration between Baby-G and Pokémon, the inspiration is the female Pikachu with a heart-shaped tail. The watch has a blush pink case and band with a pink-accented dial and gold hands. A label with “PIKACHU” and the species number “#025” is printed near the 3 o’clock position. The band features a printed pattern of overlaid Pikachu figures, giving it a camouflage look. The stainless steel case back features the collaboration logo and an etched image of the female Pikachu, and the band keeper features a pink silhouette of Pikachu’s tail. The watch comes in exclusive packaging that includes a Poké Ball case.
The Baby-G BA-110PKC-4AER will have a retail price of £139 in the U.K., and it is also expected to be released worldwide.
