"The Russian Orthodox Church admitted on Thursday to altering an image on its Web site to remove a watch worn by its leader. The alteration was discovered this week by Russian bloggers who suggested that the deleted watch was an expensive timepiece Patriarch Kirill has admitted he owns but claims to never wear."

The person who edited the photo forgot one thing while erasing the watch on the Patriarch's wrist; the watch reflection on the glossy table. (Click the image above and then click the "Next" button and the watch will disappear.)

It is believed that the watch is question is a Breguet.

Update: The watch shown is Breguet Reveil du Tsar, worth approximately $30,000.
