Michael Friedberg Wrote:Adrian and Tony,While I respect your opinions about these marriages, I also respect what Archy has separately written me:I know most of the collectors don't respect the watch conversion projects after all I try to rescue each piece which has lost its original case in the past and my passion is having them recased and making them wearable again and I enjoy them by daily use. I never change the original condition of the watches or movements I just try to rescue and enjoy them.---------------Given that these are rescue watches for his personal use, I think there is a different twist to the story. I also should tell you that Archy is the European collector who owns the Pallweber I and II shown initially in this string, and a true expert on Pallweber watches.
