why don't they just use a screw driver and hammer. it would cause less damage. seeing stuff like this really hacks me off.
Same! I have a few used pieces with some slight tool marks that don't bother me too much, but when they are deep and like this it's just damage.
its not hard to take these off properly, that's just pure laziness!!!!!
put the dang thing in a holder and use the right tool!
a pair of pliers isn't a proper tool
(I cant say that i haven't done this in the past though!! (LOL)
It's for sure a deal breaker at times but I picked up a 7548 that has a serviced movement, ok cosmetics except for a few marks on the back, it's the one piece I own with marks this deep and I've learned to live with it but I'd be lying if I said it didn't bother me.I hate to see case backs abused, almost a deal breaker for me, at one time years ago I considered saving just the case backs
