REAL:
"Go Ape" is marked just above the middle button.
The words "Illuminator" and others are white in color.
Color of the 3 "eyes" on top is the same as that if the main LCD display.
Triangle corner of the box fits very well.
Design of metal backing is overall smooth AND is marked, "xxx/1000".

FAKE
Go Ape has become "WAR 21ST RESIST".
Color of the words is black or other color.
Color of the 3 "eyes" is different compared to the main display. Often times the far right/biggest eye is also red.
Triangle corner is out
Design of the metal backing is rough and/or marked, "xxx/2000".

I hate to correct you but this guide does not work for all Bape 6900's. The first and second Bapes (matte black with rainbow "G-SHOCK" text from 2003 and white with rainbow "G-SHOCK" text from 2004 actually do say "WAR 21ST RESIST". It's a play on the "WATER 20BAR RESIST" that is printed on most G-Shocks. Also on a few of the real Bape models the larger "eye" actually is red. And some editions were produced as runs of 2000, an example being the red Bape. The more recent ones were reduced to 1000. That being said the eBay auction is definitely for a fake Bape. The easiest and most telltale sign is the location of the day, represented by a two letter abbreviation. On the fakes the day is ALWAYS below the middle eye. This doesn't just apply to Bapes, but all fake 6900's. As someone once said regarding fakes, if the price looks too good to be true, it probably is! Good luck with your hunt.
