A non-gold bezel on a solid gold watch means one of the following:

Switched--grab the gold and replace it with GF

Replaced--original lost and replaced with a much cheaper (and readily available) GF

Damaged--original solid gold bezel has been broken or severely damaged so as to NOT hold a crystal correctly; replaced with GF, as solid gold ones are not easily available (they usually have to be made).
