    Bell & Ross 123 Beige PVD Authentication Please

    Hi folks, looking for input on another timepiece: a Bell & Ross 123 Beige 'Carbon', striking as this combo may be, I have several concerns:

    1) I have never come across a 123/126 Beige line that is PVD/Carbon. Did Bell & Ross actually produce this variant? Was it a limited run? All I could find was the stainless steel version.
    2) The serial number/watch info is not ingrained on the caseback, rather it appears to be printed.

    Otherwise, everything else appears legit, the watch and case feel solid, the crystal is domed, the dial and face appear spot on and printed 3/9/12 showing slight elevation & luminescence, the second dial has the inner circle lines, the crown has sufficient detail, could not find any fault with the strap but have least amount of knowledge on that one.

    Pictures included. Thank you for your help and your time.

    Yes, this is a genuine watch. It was a limited edition run for a watch retailer, I believe it was Tourneau.

    Thank you. Has anyone seen the caseback for these watches, and can confirm details were printed rather than ingrained?
