A Bathing Ape Type 2 BAPEX – There’s no question that A Bathing Ape’s line of watches borrows heavily from the Swiss watch maker Rolex. The entire “BAPEX” line is an homage to the classic Rolex Submariner, and the latest takes the adulation to another level. Much of the “Type 2 Bapex” remains the same from its use of stainless steel case and bracelet, but what is most eye-catching is the blue and red bezel. The “Pepsi” bezel is an aftermarket option that is more commonly found on Rolex’s other classic, the GMT-Master. Look for this new edition to be available now for $400 USD.
