    Just adding my own experience to this thread.
    My 2254.50 got water in the case. I sent it to Archer for service, and had the seconds hand and bezel replaced while it was in his capable hands.
    People have posted about the SMP crystal not being a perfect match for the height of the PO bezel. I did not replace the crystal. I have found that there is a palpable lip between the crystal and bezel (the bezel being slightly higher than the edge of the crystal) but, visually, I cannot see it. (unless I look at my watch from the side, 90 degrees from the face).
    I'm not sure I would have noticed had I not been looking for it.
    I know that some want the double-AR coating of the PO crystal, but I worry a bit about scratching the outer AR during daily use and the cost was a factor.

    Brilliant, very creative approach. It stands out beautifully.

    Look fantastic buddy. I've just sent my 2002 2254.50 away for a full service, refurb and mod to the custom PO/SMP. I've decided to go with the non-AC dial, PO second hand, PO bezel and crystal. I know you could just buy a 2500C PO for the costs involved, but I genuinely prefer the slimmer case of the SMP, the higher beat rate of the 1120 movement (and cheaper servicing costs) and the sword hands/wave dial combo. And it's nice to know there aren't many out there with the same watch!

    This combo looks outstanding and I've been thinking about upgrading my 2254 to the PO bezel. I am not a fan of the original bezel font nor how slippery the scalloped edges can be under most conditions. I think these pics may have pushed me over the edge!

    If those are your motivations I do not think you will be disappointed. Go for it, then post pictures.

    Where can one find the Po bezel upgrade for the 2254?
