The analogy doesn't work because with the acccutron the end result is
a bettter timekeeper. It's accuracy will improve by over 50% and
battery life will double.
And regarding the ferrari conversion the result could easily be a car
with equal power and probably a much less finnicky and more reliable
motor. Look what the Ford motor did for the AC automobile.

"Bulova offered a quartz conversion kit.... for repair folks to swap into
Accutrons coming in for service, after Bulova discontinued the Accutron.
Currently there is ONE quartz movement, an ISA 1198/42-4 that is a direct
swap for an Accutron 218 day date, right down to the dial feet locations
stem at 16:00"

For the owner of a busted tuning fork watch who simply wants a
timekeeper that choice makes a lot of sense. For a collector of old
accutrons it makes no sense whatsoever.
