    A little help please...03-92 Black Ceramic?

    Hi - long time watch collectors, just acquired my second Bell & Ross - a polished 03-92 black ceramic.

    I have seen several photos that lead me to believe there were a few different iterations of this watch. Mine is similar to this one:

    http://www.chrono24.com/en/bellross/...num=0&tab=pics

    No screws on the dial, brushed steel numerals and markers, numbers are not lumed. Looks very much like the 01-92 polished black ceramic.

    But then I see this one at the eboutique:

    http://www.bellross.com/us/shop/watc...tails/509.html

    And it has screws in the dial, and looks to have applied numerals that are lumed.

    Can anyone help me understand this? Thanks!

    Thanks!

    I wonder if the model # or dial changed after it was introduced? My model is BR03-92-CBL - on their site it says BR0392-CER-BLP.

    No problem, there's always a difference between the official reference and the serial number
