Sake, inspired by your research, I've just found a pair of B&L and I think these might just be the IM3 frames.

These are known as the "B&L Black Pearl Outdoorsman" model due to the pearl colored sweat bar and black frame.

This really rare model was made for a short period of time under license in Germany.

This Ambermatic Outdoorsman frame ticks 3 important boxes:

1: The much smaller gap between nose bridge and brow bar looks to be an identical gap to the screen used frames.
2: They are 58mm lens width.
3: They already have straight temple arms to match the screen used frames.

It's the smallest nose bridge/brow bar gap I've seen so far on any Outdoorsman's.

As expected of a teacher!

Another thing is that the nose pads are clear. We are getting closer to the truth!

I was looking at different eras of outdoorsman and I'm convinced the narrow gap is a feature of the B&L time, maybe not every pair but after the 1999 sale to Luxottica they seem all to have the wide space.

There's a large retailer selling out their last stock of Caddis RCA in seawater color at $95 online if anyone is looking for them. This looks close to what used usually costs from what I see. No 0.0 power left, but 7 in reading powers are left.

The Armani Exchange AX4026S is similar to the Paul Smith Shawford.

I found the Robert Mark 719. This number is 719-242. I don't know the color of the front frame. It hasn't arrived yet.

Do you know the front frame color of 719-242?
I don't unfortunately :(, sorry. There isn't much info. at all out there on RM719's.

I've tried to brighten up your images a bit, hopefully to see the frames color a bit better...

Despite the frames having a gold look to them, mainly on the temple/hinge, it may just be the way the light is catching the frames and that I've turned the brightness way up.

That said, looking at the the pink and brown tortoise pattern on the inside of the arms, they have a fairly good chance to be this color variant below, as it would be unusual for the same pink/brown tortoise arm inserts to appear on different frame front colors...

Nice image capture!! (y)

There's quite a few various bronze/copper frame front 719 colorways, all with different inner arm insert colors.

Inner arm insert colors on bronze/copper frame fronts that we've found/discussed so far:
Tortoise (242?)
Pink (265)
Light Pink/beige (223)
Light Turquoise Blue (246) - Thanks Bud
Lime Green (297)
(I may have missed out a color that may not have been posted here).

The 719 debate of the exact frame used in IM1 will no doubt continue on, but you still have the next hurdle to go!!....The 719 movie lenses!!
The 719 movie lenses debate is still very much "open" and getting the lens color right is really difficult, as every pic seems to show them different, from light orange, to orange and also a red, with every tone inbetween!!...o_O:unsure:

Here's my 719-265 with 2 lens attempts...
