These were a creation of Pat Caruso, former long time employee at the Waltham watch factory.

Pat made/created many of these alterations. In fact when I appraised his watch collection, he showed me at least a dozen of these he had made.

A few were released and as far as I known the estate still retains the remainders.

He also made up a few for friends.

I do not have one and don't want one--these are recreations.
