Casio India announces an all-new and exclusive G-SHOCK collaboration with the planet’s
Most Successful Virtual Act*, Gorillaz on occasion of G-SHOCK’s 35th anniversary.
The collaboration with Gorillaz is to help G-SHOCK creator Mr Ibe realise a lifelong dream,
hatching a plan to reach their mutually aligned intergalactic goals.
The collection will focus on G-SHOCK’s original 5600 case shape, the first ever G-SHOCK
watch designed by an engineer and founder Mr Ibe 35 years ago. G-SHOCK’s longest selling
model, the 5600 has remained a favourite the world over.
The first album by the British band Gorillaz was released in 2001 and since then Gorillaz is
recognised by The Guinness Book Of World Records as the planet’s Most Successful Virtual
Act with a release like Demon Days (2005), Plastic Beach (2010), The Fall (2011), Humanz
(2017) and current album The Now Now (2018). A truly global phenomenon, Gorillaz have
topped charts around the world and toured the globe from San Diego to Syria, picking up
hundreds of millions of streams and record sales along the way. Gorillaz has achieved
success in entirely ground-breaking ways, winning numerous awards including the coveted
Jim Henson Creativity Honor.
