Due to popular demand following the sold out 2018 collection, GORILLAZ X G-SHOCK is back on 16th September with a final unique collaboration featuring two limited-edition G-SHOCK styles – designed by Gorillaz co-creator Jamie Hewlett – with inspiration drawn from two acclaimed albums from the Grammy and BRIT Award winning British band – ‘Gorillaz’ and ‘The Now Now’.
The limited edition 2019 collaboration also concludes the adventures of G-SHOCK creator Mr. Ibe and Gorillaz band members – Noodle, Murdoc Niccals, Russel Hobbs and 2D – with their return to Mr. Ibe’s Tokyo R&D Centre following a hair-raising trip through outer space to realise their mutually aligned intergalactic goals. See what happens next when you watch the final episode here at gshock.co.uk/gorillaz and Gorillaz YouTube, art-directed by Jamie Hewlett, with French directors collective BRVTVS.
The classic GW-B5600 has been reimagined in celebration of Gorillaz’ most recent album ‘The Now Now’ and in honour of the album’s distinctive artwork, the design features a colour combination of pop blue and pink. And in another nod to the record, the bi-colour message ‘NOW’ floats onto the display whenever it is illuminated by the backlight. The GW-B5600 also has a Bluetooth capability which can be synced with G-SHOCK’s proprietary app, allowing access to a variety of features and functions direct from your Smartphone.
The GA-2000 is the latest watch to be launched by G-SHOCK and – in honour of Gorillaz’ 2001 eponymous debut release – features the iconic camo print familiar to Gorillaz fans worldwide. This watch comes complete with two wrist bands – one featuring the camo print and the other a darker military style – which can be easily interchanged and worn alternatively. The collector’s edition box also features 2001 era design incarnations of the Gorillaz characters.
Both models sport standard G-SHOCK iconic features including shock, vibration and water resistance.
The limited edition GORILLAZ x G-SHOCK collection will be exclusively available at Gorillaz.com/store for 48 hours from 00:01 BST on 16th September ahead of a launch in-store and online at 10am BST on Wednesday 18th September at gtimeisnow.com and in G-SHOCK retail stores globally. Limited numbers available.
