    Bell & Ross Vintage 126 Geneva

    Is this one real?
    Hey guys I'm new to this Bell and Ross world.
    I was wondering if you guys could help me with this piece:
    http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...E:L:OC:US:1120
    Looks legit to me, since it has all the papers and receipt, what do you guys think?
    Let me know.

    I agree. I really like the olds ones with the screw down crown. I like the size of the old ones too. It kind of seems they went away from a tool/military watch to more of a dress watch. Not that the new ones are a bad watch.

    measures?

    Hello,

    Could pls someone provide a link to the site with technical details of this watch or clarify relevant measures for buying a new strap?

    Thanks!

    lug width?

    A photo here: http://i57.servimg.com/u/f57/18/69/55/30/br_12611.jpg

    What is the lug width if I want to buy a leather strap (20 or 22 mm)?

    Pretty sure most older vintages were 20mm and the new vintages are now 22mm

    Gudzz is right, 20mm for the oldest, 22mm for the Vintage BR range.

    Yeah I've seen a lot of nice watches that look legit on ebay but you have to be careful because I've heard that a lot of these sellers remove some of the insides and replace them with cheap stuff and then sell the parts and then the watch malfunctions soon after.
