The planet’s most successful virtual act, Gorillaz, announced they’re teaming up with Casio G-SHOCK for a new line of watches. This collaboration comes at the heels of Casio G-SHOCKS’s 35th Anniversary and the debut of Gorillaz’s latest album The Now Now. Gorillaz has topped the charts around the world and toured the globe from San Diego to Syria, achieving success in entirely ground-breaking ways.

Gorillaz Returns: Virtual Band Debuts “The Now Now”

The G-SHOCK x Gorillaz collaboration draws on details from the fictional universe the band lives in. The DW5600 has been re-imagined for 2D, Murdoc Niccals, and Noodle in character-specific colorways, detailing, and individual packaging. The design boasts shock resistance, 200-meter water resistance, and an LCD scratch-resistant watch face.

Additionally, a fourth model is inspired by the band’s drummer, Russel Hobbs. Designed in the more robust GX56 case, “The King” is solar powered and features standard G-SHOCK technology including shock resistance and mud resistance.
