Re: In Summary -- Careless, but Not Criminal


I agree. Whether careless or criminal, if I were a consignor to one of these auctions I would be really mad if I saw these photos.

Jeff Stein and I had a conversation about this. He requested additional photos of a few watches and received much better photos. If the auction houses had these photos to begin with why was the lead online catalog photo so bad. Jeff said that the answer from the auction house was that if someone is interested they should request additional photos and description. My answer would be that the lead catalog photo should be the great first impression...the impression which attracts the widest range and biggest number of potential interested bidders. That should be their job as a representative of the consignor of the watch.
