I have an old 18 S pocket watch case. I need the grommet that the bow rests on. The case has one on one side and then just a big hole on the other side. I’m not sure if grommet is the right term but it is the object that the bow rests on , on either side of the pendant. Here is a picture of the pendant with the big hole, please help

There used to be assortments of these "bushings?" for sale. I don't know if they are available today. I have a couple of said assortments but can not help you since I am away from my workplace..... (Corona prevention)

They are also easy to make if you can find someone with a lathe but that person will need to have access to the case (and bow) or correct dimmensions.

Do you have the bow?
There might be more answers if we know where you are located.

I think the best solution would be to locate a watchmaker for solving this.

Have a look at Cousins UK's "Bushes for Pocketwatch Bows" :)

I am located in rising Sun Indiana which is only about half an hour to Cincinnati and 25 minutes to Harrison Ohio. I think the NAWCI was originally based in Harrison Ohio?
