Bape Unveils New Bapex Watch Collection for Summer 2017
After last week’s release of the OG Bapesta Low sneakers, streetwear brand Bape is back with a new collection for the summer of 2017. Today, introducing a luxurious set unreleased timepieces, the Japanese retailer is set to release two of its most expensive watches to date.
Releasing in two signature Bape watch styles—Type 1 and Type 3—the timepieces will feature A Bathing Ape branding on the face and back of each watch. The Bapex Type 1 model will be dressed entirely in a black colorway with hits of black and gold featured on the wrist band and clock hands. The Bapex Type 3 will feature a metallic silver body with hits of black on the clock hands, followed by a signature Bape camo pattern on the face to round out the entire collection.
Bape’s history with watches can be dated back to 1998 when the Japanese streetwear brand first teamed up with Casio to create a limited edition G-Shock. The result of the collab saw the release of 1000 pieces that quickly sold out in a matter of days.
The brand new Bapex Type 1 and Type 3 timepieces are set to retail between $590 and $670. Look for Bape to announce the release date for the watches within the days to come.
