TOKYO, March 7, 2012 — Casio Computer Co., Ltd., announced today the latest additions to its Baby-G family of shock-resistant watches for women. The new BGA-160 watches feature a special luminous ink on the crystal and hands as well as a four-layer, three-dimensional face design.

The BGA-160 is a Baby-G equipped with Neon Illuminator, which uses a black light LED to light up special luminous ink on the hour indicators on the crystal, the hour and minute hands, and the dial, in colors such as green, pink, and blue.

Casio has created yet another highly distinctive, three-dimensional watchface design. The large roman-numeral hour indicators are placed on two different layers, and the 12 and 6 o’clock indicators are actually rendered on the surface of the crystal using special luminescent ink. Counting the dial, the watchface actually has a four-layer construction. The simple shape of the smooth bezel accentuates the dramatic watchface, while the wide band in a glossy finish gives the watch the look of an attractive bangle. Finally, the metal dial and the raised ring that circles it create a metallic look that helps deliver a cool but very feminine design.
