Antique Elgin Gold Pocket Watch

Post by Holliday III » Sat Apr 25, 2015 9:35 pm

I have a Gold Elgin Pocket Watch which my Father passed on to me. However there is a face protector or crystal which has dislodged and all the average jewelry stores in DC will not touch it.
Can you Classic assist me or make suggestions for local repair experts who can help me? Thank you.

I can do it, but we only do complete service jobs via mail order (it's a no store front operation). If it hasn't been serviced recently it's probably time to do it anyway, and the crystal would be a nominal charge if any.
