He said: "Clean and safe oceans and beaches are a priority for G-Shock."

Matt McClain, director of marketing at the Surfrider Foundation, added that the new limited edition Casio watch was a "great way" to celebrate 25-years of sustainable ocean and beach work.

The Surfrider Foundation now has more than 80 chapters worldwide with over 50,000 members.
