Depending on the year of your PX, most likely French hub threading. So stay classic French or locate some Nuovo Record hubs with French threading,(they are around). The hubs you ref. are very different, a pair of 28 hole NR hubs and two versions of the C Record (big dollar) hubs, I would stay 36 hole for ease of locating rims, you did not state if you would want to stay with sew ups...later clincher rims often are 32 hole, those vintage hubs will command a premium.

Look for a pair of Maillard (note spelling) Professional or 700 series hubs, or sell the whole thing and get a bike to fit your handle. Note: 126mm spacing can always be reduced back to 120.

6 French bikes, 10 Italian in my bike room, could be more don't admit to all of them.
