Anyone have a good pocket watch repair guy?

Post by Airframer » November 5th 2019, 12:22pm

Hi Folks,

Finally getting around to getting my great-grandfather's pocket watch running. My grandfather dropped it sometime before I was born, and it sat in a plastic bag in Hawaii for years, before sitting in a bag at home with me for years. Its a Howard watch, apparently from the Keystone-Howard era, and missing some pieces:

Not knowing much, I also purchased the following Howard watch recently in hopes of some parts interchangeability:

Anyone have a line on a reliable person/shop to send this too? Much like my Grandfather's Omega, there's not much monetary value, but significant family history in this one.
