    Is there a listing anywhere on this site where one can find pocket watch collectors in specific geographic areas?

    Hi Lisa,
    I hope you can understand that most, if not all, collectors would not want to be on such a public list in today's world. So, no, something like that does not exist. What you can do is contact a local NAWCC chapter. See this post - Finding a chapter near you. If you contact a local chapter and explain your interest, I think most will help in any way they can.

    The standard NAWCC protocol is that if you know who someone is either via their name or NAWCC Member number, you can send your contact information to Member Services and they will forward it to the member. The member can then contact you if they want to.

    Lisa,

    Welcome to the NAWCC forum
    Most people who post here have their state or country, or even their city in their profile.
    If you look under my photo of maxwell smart(to the left of this post)you will see
    that I live in New York State. If you want you can send a PM(private message)
    to someone if you see that they live near you and have a question.
    Or you can post something like, "I live outside of Pittsburg are there
    any watchmakers or collectors nearby". Like Dave said above
    one of the best solutions is to contact the local NAWCC chapter
    that's in your geographical location.

    She has now listed Hanover, PA, in her profile. Following the links above, it would appear that Chapter 158 is nearby. The website info for the chapter is pretty bleak, but there seems to be links to email the President/Secretary. Maybe they're in Harrisburg? Hopefully that will get some attention.

    The chapter is actually quite active. They meet in at a nice elder housing facility meeting room and the lobby has a nice Foucault Pendulum that was written up recently in the Watch & Clock Bulletin.
