Re: In Summary -- Careless, but Not Criminal

: This seems very different from what we saw Christie's do with a
: Skipperera, using Photoshop to remove marks from the dial of a
: watch. That was not careless or accidental.

What really annoys me is the fact that Christie's, completely ignoring the recent outcry regarding the Skipperera, eagerly continues to photoshop their photos in a massive way. As seen in the catalogue photos you posted of the Heuers in their May 13 auction. The photos should give the prospective buyer a true picture of what they are bidding on. I think this is not an acceptable behaviour.
