    The Bathing Ape logo is some kind of fashion label. The G-Shocks with that design are rare, and there's a lot of fakes about. Tread carefully if you're thinking of buying one.

    As far as I know, they were limited editions that have all sold out. You might still find them in new condition if you're prepared to pay the price, somewhere like ebay. There's a 'fake bape' thread on this forum you might find interesting, that will help you avoid buying a fake. Good luck finding one.

    Real Bapes' are like rocking horse s*it, 99% of them on ebay are fakes with superimposed screen images resembling a real bape.
    Stay well clear mate!!

    Don't bother Dean, unless you're willing to spend a few hundred bones. There are much nicer g 6900s under a bill.

    Thanks for the heads up, too. I've been looking at a few on fleabay. One was very pricey, the other very, very low! I think I know now which is the real one!

    Cheers!

    I'd still be careful. I can't see any that look genuine on ebay. One seller appears to have photos of a fake and a genuine one on the same listing, unless my eyes deceive me.

    Almost certainly neither.

    Don't be fooled by some people bidding big. A clear fake went for £226 the other day. The seller has got another of the same type up for sale as we speak.
