The G-Shock Gorillaz collaboration will see a brand new limited edition collection of watches, designed specifically with the band members in mind, 2D, Noodle, Murdoc Niccals, Russel Hobbs.

This new G-Shock Gorillaz partnership brings together two world class acts, who have been innovating and pushing boundaries for years, renowned entities that offer a classic style refined again with a twist when they come together.

This announcement comes just days after the interview with Casio G-Shock creator Kikuo Ibe where he surprisingly said that he wanted to sell a G-Shock watch to an alien in a outer-space Casio outlet! You can read all about that here.

This is now being made in to reality, in a round about way, via the collaboration with Gorillaz. The theme to the collaboration, seems to be Kikuo Ibe sending the Gorillaz to space with a case of G-Shock watches (see video above)
