Baby G Neo Retro Watches

By Shel Silverstein

My dad gave me one dollar bill
'Cause I'm his smartest son,
And I swapped it for two shiny quarters
'Cause two is more than one!

And then I took the quarters
And traded them to Lou
For three dimes -- I guess he didn't know
That three is more than two!

Just then, along came old blind Bates
And just 'cause he can't see
He gave me four nickels for my three dimes,
And four is more than three!

And then I took the nickels to Hiram Coombs
Down at the seed-feed store,
And the fool gave me five pennies for them,
And five is more than four!

And then I went and showed my dad,
And he got red in the cheeks
And closed his eyes and shook his head --
Too proud of me to speak!

The Baby-G watch brand is about to give us all a seriously heavy dosage of nostalgia. They’ve recently introduced a new Neo Retro Theme Series, which includes watches that look just like the clear plastic ones we had as kids. They come in translucent candy colors, and remind us of all the childhood goodness in the world from Game Boys to cassette tapes and Tamagotichis.

It’s the kind of watch we all used to beg our parents for back in grade school. But this time, you can actually afford it yourself.  There are two different watches in the series, a blue or pink version.  The blue comes with orange accents, while the pink is more of a Barbie shade with red accents.

Not only are they super fun to wear and look up, but they’re also highly functional. Each of the digital watches are water resistant (up to 200 meters), as well as shock resistant and come with a countdown timer.
