Would anyone know of someone around St. Louis or Kansas City, Missouri that can do pocket watch case work, particularly the bezel for a hunter style Seth Thomas watch. I am not able to repair this for a customer, nor able to get it to retain the crystal very well. I repaired it the first time, but the customer was a little abusive with it, lost it and the crystal and second hand, then found it later and sent it to be repaired. Everything was coated in some horrible industrial glue which took me about four days to remove.

I would like to be able to recommend someone to him before I return the watch. Please pm me, thanks!..........................gf
