Re: Serious Buyer will Request Full Set of Proper Photos, Ri


ok asking for more pictures, but this does not justify the image alteration on official catalogues.

A watch sold during an auction is an 'identified' watch that carries 'the auction' along his future life.
And the catalog pictures and description are 'the' permanent document that can identify the watch.

If the buyer, after 5 or 10 years of possession of the watch, gets tired and offers someone the watch to sell it
(why not, bring it to an auction house), bringing the catalogue and the invoice to authenticate it,
i am quite sure he'll receive a comment like "Hey, whats this wreck?? You swapped the dial with another watch
and now you want to sell the damaged one."
Just to say that the future value of the watch can be seriously compromised.
I'm not sure that, in future years, the auction houses will supply actual pictures of watches auctioneed years before...
