Bonhams Skipperrera -- Orange Chrono Second Hand

I haven't done an in-depth comparison, but would point out that the Bonhams Skipperrera (shown in the first photo below) has an orange chronograph second hand, while the Christie's Skipperrera (in the second photo) has a white chronograph second hand, as described in the Condition Report.

Odd to imagine that Christie's used a photo of a different Skipper, especially in view of their admission that this was a mistake in post production.



: Having looked at the photos in the catalogue and the article, it
: looks to me as if the former may actually be of a different
: watch altogether rather than just being photoshopped. It does
: look a bit like the watch that was sold at Bonhams earlier in
: the year (on which I was the underbidder) as that one really was
: in immaculate condition. I haven’t compared the catalogue
: photo of the Bonhams one against the Christie’s one but it
: would be interesting to do so.
