Abstract : Let $\ala$ and $\alb$ be two unital $C^*$-algebras. Denote by $W(a)$ the numerical range of an element $a\in\ala$. We show that the condition $W(ax)=W(bx), \forall x\in\ala$ implies that $a=b$. Using this, among other results, it is proved that if $\phi: \ala\rightarrow\alb$ is a surjective map such that $W(\phi(a)\phi(b)\phi(c)) = W(abc)$ for all $a, b$ and $c \in\ala$, then $\phi(1)\in Z(B)$ and the map $\psi=\phi(1)^2\phi$ is multiplicative.
