All Hell Breaks Loose (1) - S2-E21

Continuity mistake: Before the Roadhouse fire, Ash and Dean are talking on the phone. Ash looks at his watch, on his left hand, it says 8:10, and has a black dial/face. As Dean and Bobby go through the rubble, Dean identifies Ash by his watch. Still on his left hand, it is now upside down, evident by the crown of the watch (used to move the hands of the watch) which previously facing his hand, is now facing his elbow. Also, the dial/face of the watch is now silver instead of black. This is a different watch, and was inadvertently put on the burnt arm upside down.

Suggested correction: Do you mean the photo of the real Keith Drop when they are in the house with Brian and the lady from the charity shop? If so that person is not supposed to look like Papa Lazarou with black/brown/white face as it's in fact a photo of the person he is impersonating and whose identity he has stolen, e.g Keith Drop when who has the appearance of a white man, hence why Papa is painting his face with make up to look like him.
