Be clear why you want to buy one. They are rather iconic but in reality they are just a basic G shock that you could get for much less than $100

If you buy a mint, unused one then you will never lose money and probably make money down the line. However, if you wear it regularly it will be hard to recover the price but it will always be a comparitively valuable G shock.

If you still want to buy one it will be very difficult. Genuine ones do crop up sometimes on eBay but you will literally see many thousands or more fakes for every genuine one. If you see a genuine one, post it on here before buying and we will tell you whether it is genuine or not

A genuine white 6900 Bape will cost about $700. Any price greatly less than this will be a fake. You will never pick up one that is mispriced, they are just too iconic.

There were only 2000 made. However, you can see how fashion rules, the earlier black version which was only issued as a 1000 version is actually slightly cheaper than the white version.

Here is a real white one I own, just to frustrate you. :-d

Hi Mitch,

Isnt the real one has "GO APE" on the dial above the EL button and not "WAR 21ST RESIST"?

My reference was
http://reviews.ebay.com/How-To-Spot-Fake-Bape-G-Shock-Casio-Watches-DW-6900_W0QQugidZ10000000004381408

I also thought its was a 1000pcs LE and not 2000pcs

There's a couple on ebay right now from a seller out of Japan. From what I can tell their real $400.00+. Not a bad price if their real.

Ignore that bloke he is clueless and doesn't know what he is talking about.

If you want to check out whether a Bape is real or not give the details on this forum on you will get the right information.
