Watchmaker recommendation, Lady Elgin watch
I have a Lady Elgin watch that needs some TLC, movement grade 619, 1945 manufacture year. It needs a new crystal and cleaning/adjustment/timing. Can you recommend a watchmaker whose specialty includes this watch? Someone good and trustworthy preferred, in the Los Angeles area an added bonus but not mandatory. Thank you for your help!

Jorge Montoya does nice work. He's worked on a few watches for me, large and small, and I've been happy. He's an NAWCC and AWCI member, belonging to multiple chapters, and does a lot of work for members. His contact information is on the right side of the web page, towards the bottom.
Note: I don't know of anyone who actually specializes in the model in question. And I truly doubt that anyone does, as there wouldn't be enough work for them to survive as a business. in most cases, watch-work is watch-work to a watchmaker. Cheers.
