Casio never disappoints when it comes to innovative and distinctive watch fashions, and their new Baby-G 3D Illuminator watches are no exception. Recently released to the U.S. market, these watches have a unique ultra-violet LED light which, when activated, illuminates the monochromatic watch into a rainbow of glowing neon colors.
Although they’re already a huge hit with customers, we wanted to demonstrate what you can expect from your watch if you are looking to purchase it primarily for the transformation of the dial into a burst of color when the UV LED light is activated.
Although it’s a highly remarkable feature, the black model lacks some of the vibrancy that the white model produces, as you can see from the image. This is most likely because of its dark black coloration. If Casio continues to produce these models, we would really love to see a longer lasting glow and a brighter reaction on the black model or any other darker-colored versions.
We also tested the watches under a regular black light and found that they do react at certain angles, but we had to put them fairly close to the light to see it, whereas other black light reactive materials may typically glow from a distance.
These watches are a great accessory even if you don’t care for the neon illumination, as the all-black and all-white designs and 3-D dials are enough to catch the eye. They are also equipped with 100 meter water resistance (good enough for swimming) and a shock resistant movement for active individuals who may be a little rougher on their watches.
In any instance, these are still a stylish watch to wear during the day or at night, and have a unique feature you won’t find anywhere else!
