Experts Opinion: A mechanical conversion to a lever fusee escapement from a
verge fusee, often watches were upgraded to a finer timepiece by watch masters
that had this ability. The watch under discussion here is one of the finest
conversions we have ever seen. Truly the work of a mechanical master craftsman!
