Hello Sammo,

Thanks for the heads up. |>

I'm curious to see if Bathing Ape is more stringent on prohobiting people from using their likeness than Casio.
I also just noticed that the bezel has G-shock imprinted on it. A product of Casio.

The case backs on the fakes don't say "Casio." Simply compare the red case back to the white and blacks.

:-D :-! :-! :-D

I think it's some fashion guru's commentary about Humanity. How maybe it's just what makes us special, that we "primates" bathe? Obviously as you'd know the watch is just a marketing tie in casio.:-! :-!

I found some information for everyone's edification.

Wikipedia said:
A Bathing Ape (with a line of apparel called Bape) is a Japanese clothing company that specializes in urban streetwear.

...

"The brand's name is based on a common Japanese saying, "bathing in lukewarm water", that describes the willingness of Japan's youth to follow popular trends."

...

"Over the years, Bape has extended its brand from T-shirts (Baby Milo & Bathing Ape) to other apparel such as sneakers, (Bape Sta trainers are also sold in the ultra trendy Foot Soldier shops) jeans and even underwear. A Bathing Ape has extended beyond clothing to a hair salon (Bape Cuts), gallery (Bape Gallery), cafe (Bape Cafe), record label (Ape Sounds) and (B)apeTV."
Edit: Wouldn't "edification" be the process of turning something into an edifice? I meant to say "education" but it's late and I can't think.

Nice find Cherubim|>
These marketing types don't miss a beat!
First they comment on the flock mentality, then they cater to it. :-D :-D

I have to say though, not a fan of the watches colours though. A bit too loud for my tastes.

I have to tell you I am really confused...I bought a used BAPE watch, and it looks exactly like the ones that are listed. The watch back is the same, etc. I bought mine from a girl who listed it poorly. She said she got it from her boyfriend, so I don't know about the packaging, and color of the Ape's head. Here's something interesting. On this auction, at the bottom, someone asks about what is on the band.

Like mine, it should say "ape shall never kill ape". These do not. So is that the test? Is that what we should look for? Also, I thought some BAPE runs were only 1000, while others were 2000.
Thanks for all of this info.

Hi first of all I'm new to this forum so be gentle.................LOL
Right on with what Ive got to ask, today Ive just got a red bapeing ape g-shock dw-900 that my partner has bought me which i was nice of her:)
Ive read the report the sammo did which i thought was spot on, my question's are Ive checked the box to make sure the ape head is gold which it is checked the back and that seems cool just the part I'm worried about is when i press the light button to show the head it is right under the day if that makes sense(Ive looked at the pic's up on this post and the Thursday is more over to the left hand side on the watch i have got it's more in the middle)I'll post some pic's up sorry about the crap pic's but i haven't got a digital camera had to use my mobile...
Hope somebody can help;-)

Hi Becks
Welcome to the forum.
I'm sure I read somewhere that the inside packaging should be one piece the one in the picture looks like seperate pieces so I reserve judgement it maybe a fake I'm sure somebody will confirm it either way.

Hi Guys -

Only 2000 of each were made.

I was living in Japan when the black and white's were released, and they sold out within hours.

They were also listed on a Japanese website. before they went on sale, it was announced a week before, eXact time and day.

When the time hit the button, about 10 seconds and whooooshhhh!! All gone:-D

So the one's listed on EBay are ridiculously suspicious just reading the above..

The EBay Apes have been going for over a month now and the place is flooded!

So you can bet your dollar that they are full fakes, plus also the wrong printed type manual that is shown, and previously mentioned loose corner pieces in the box, which original boxes do not have.

Fakes appear to flourish on EBay, and they really do not care, or do not have the resources to deal with it.

I also noticed the recent influx of these fakes. I've also spotted them on the Dutch 'Marktplaats' site. They look craaaaap. The terrible LCD and the location of the day is a dead giveaway.

Here's a pic from an ad. The guy first listed it for 99 Euros, then without a price. It's supposedly # 251 of 2000 ... he didn't show a caseback pic, but I wonder if there are fakes marked like that... could be a good tell.
