    IS THIS A REAL BELL AND ROSS OR A FAKE???

    I have a bell & ross watch that i need info on. it is an older watch and 2 jewelers believe it is real. the inside of the back is marked with the swiss stamp and says swiss 27 jewels on it. the inside is believed to be made of gold from the jewelers. here is whats listed on the back :

    WATER RESISTANT
    100 M / 325 FT
    QUARTZ
    STAINLESS STEEL
    SWISS MADE
    120S00483
    &
    plus the & symbol on the side dial

    The band has this on the clasp side written on the leather band :

    CUIR VERITABLE 20
    and the & symbol is on the clasp

    the other side of the bad has this written on the leather band:

    BELL & ROSS

    I bought a big bag of old watches from an older gentleman. he's had them for several years and this would be an older model. the leather has been confirmed to be an older real leather band and shows a little wear from use. i have included picture to help. i dont have a good camera but tried to make as clear as possible. please help me find out the value and if it is a real or a duplicate.its a nice watch and when i had the battery replaced the jewler was impressed and the watch works. thank you very much,
    George

    Hi George,

    looks like a vintage 120 (1997/1998)
    In my catalogue january 2008 dials are black or beige, no black & white.
    but they produce double color at the beginning of the production.
    unfortunately your pics are very bad, could you post another one ?

    btw, IMO, it's real...have a look :

    well in response to the color the 12 is a beige color along with the dots for every hr. the rest is black n white. the hour and minute hand have a beige paint in the center of it. but the only flaw in the whole watch is the paint on the hr hand has chipped out n is inside the watch atm. im trying to find a value of this watch and weather its worth it to order the spare hr hand or just sell it. but from your pictures i can tell its an almost exact picture of what i have. here is a new pic if it helps. I dont get what you mean about the dial. the 3 center circles on the watch arent white or beige. its silver in color like your picture shows. the rest is white except the dots and the number 12 which are a beige color. the hr hand and minute hand appear to be the same color in the center with a white trim on them. i hope this picture helps a lil. thanks again, GEORGE

    btw here is a link. this explains the beige color on those spots. they are glow in the dark paint n here is a picture of my exact watch with a metal band. im starting to think it is a real B&R product. im searching the internet now that i have a proper model number to work with. not a bad find on my part. sells between $1800-$2500. i need to find out a rough cost to replace the hr hand on it or should i sell as is for cheap. like $500-$700 cheap. lots of things to think about. i will not sell until i get another confirmation on this item. 2 jewelers and a person on the B&R forum is great but just want more proof so i can sell easier. thanks
