I would like to add my encouragement to go see the exhibition. I was there today and had the good fortune to run into Hugues de Pins , the president o ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, ,,, the president of VC North America, so I got a personal tour of the wonderful watches in the exhibition. It is the first time that the Fouad, the Farouk and the Packard pocket watches have ever been together, since one of them is owned by a private collector in the US and another (the Packard) was just acquired at auction here in New york. They are more magnificent in person than you can imagine from the photos, and I even got to hear the Packard half-quarter repeater in all its glory. Other hghlights include a beautiful enameled watch owned by Diamond Jim Brady as well as an original American 1921 and steel watches made for the Army Corps of Engineers.
