New BR03-93 GMT owners (Red and Black bezel)

Hi all,

I have just bought a new BR03-93 GMT (Red & Black bezel) from an AD and when I got home, I have noticed that they included a BR03-92 manual booklet instead of the specific model booklet of a BR 03-93 GMT.

When I went back to the AD, they searched their entire B&R stock and opened up every single box to locate the GMT booklet but they could not find it. The AD said they will contact the supplier to obtain the manual booklet.

I got a call from the AD a couple hours later and got told that B&R does not supply that particular watch with the specific booklet anymore and they just include a "generic" BR03-92 booklet with a new BR03-93.

I thought this was really odd as I have seen photos of the older non red and black bezel model with specific GMT manual booklets. I doubt that the AD is making this up as they were very accommodating and made the effort to search their entire stock of BR03 boxes to find me this booklet. I am really disappointed if this is true as there are no specific instructions on how to operate that GMT hand for that watch. I do know how to operate it, but as a watch collector I do look at attention to detail in everything and its really dissapointing that B&R wont even include specific instruction manuals for their non generic watches.

Are there any other new black & red bezel BR03-93 GMT owners here? Did you get a specific GMT instruction manual booklet or a generic BR03-92 booklet?

Thanks for the link. I believe that was for the older non rotating bezel model. I know that that specific booklet was supplied with the older model (non red & black bezel).

I am after a hard copy for the box for display and collection purposes.

I will contact B&R directly to see if what I have been informed is true. I am interested to see if any other owners of the new red and black bezel BR03-93 GMT were also supplied a BR03-92 manual booklet in the box.

Also interested to hear from B&R ADs or retailers to clarify this.
I also found these images from an online retailer, could I have possibly been given the wrong box?

Would appreciate if anyone can verify this.

I just heard from Bell & Ross and I was informed that as of September 2021, Bell & Ross have made the decision to supply a Generic Warranty Booklet with all of their watches.
