    First post = first question

    Hello. I have been trying to acquire a B & R for quite some time now, but I have always been afraid of counterfeits. Right now I have the chance to buy the one pictured, but what say ye - is this real or a knockoff?

    Are there specific tell signs for these? Does it seem to be a legit watch?

    Much thanks in advance.

    IMHO, it's a fake !

    do you know the reference ? geneva ? vintage 126 ?

    bell&ross logo, date window, etc and...have a look :

    Hello, and thanks so much for confirming what I already expected. This item is currently being sold on eBay, and the seller did not post the watch's details, which is a tell sign for me, but in any case I quit trying to bid as the guy inflated the price with a fake account.

    Thanks so much for your opinions though, as I am fond of the B&R culture but am not a specialist whatsoever.

    When in doubt, check the wiki my friends . That's a genuine Medium Chrono, a ladies quartz chronograph from around 2003. It was essentially the same as the vintage 120, but smaller and without the split chono feature.

    Once again, many thanks for the help and for pointing me to the wiki. I lost interest in any case as it's a lady's watch.
