    I wouldn't risk it. They don't the home screen where the day and date would be which would be a nice shot to have to really confirm. I'd pass.

    Hail to the King, baby.

    I'm certainly not informed on the matter, but I will say that the resin on those watches looks like crap.

    Looks like the B pusher on top right is missing.

    I know nothing about Bape and don't own one, but had to comment how a seller can supply such bad photos on an item and possibly expect a buyer to risk paying on such sketchy information.

    If I'm selling something, It is in my best interest if I want top dollar to display my item in the best possible light with quality photos of the whole item so a buyer can see what he is paying for.

    If the photos suck, the risk to the buyer skyrockets and the offers plummet.

    In this case, it would be a good idea to ask the seller for more photos before bidding/buying. Just my 2cent opinion.

    You are correct. It is missing the reset button. The deal looks too good to be true but sometimes the seller doesn't know what exactly they have. Wish I had better photos as well.

    Fake... The fastest way to tell is to look at the weekday. It should be between the first and second eye and not directly under the first or second eye.

    Look at the Eyes. They look like skinny stars, not like the classy DW-6900 eyes with the small circle in the middle. Total fake (together with the skinny digit day and date)
