    Please can anyone tell me what year this is?

    I have recently bought this pre owned BR 123 Vintage from a reputable jewellers in Cheltenham. He tells me it is a 2012 but I've seen others with the same pinkish graphic advertised as 2013. I've got the box and papers but the warranty date card is missing.
    Also I assume it should have a tan strap. Also puzzled at the mention of a screw down crown in the manual when to my knowledge the BR 123 has never had one. Thanks.20170716_211531.jpg20170716_211512.jpg20170716_210928.jpg20170716_211448.jpg

    Hey - I think B&R started making that model in 2010 but I'm not sure as to exactly what year it was produced. However, it looks like the box and booklet you have are from the older model BR123, which was discontinued in 2010. The older model 123s did have screw-down crowns. My 123 Military Type and Desert Type from 2003 and 2004 have screw-down crowns.

    Thanks for that. It matches a response on watchuseek forum. I wondered whether or not dating could be done via serial numbers like most other makes. The main thing is it's the real deal so it's now worth getting the correct strap and buckle.
