    Any watchmaker in SF Bay Area who can repair a minute repeater pocket watch?

    I have a late 1800 minute repeater pocket watch.

    Currently, it can only chime up to 10~11 times (occasionally it can chime up to 14 times, but not often. Hour and quarter part works fine), and I thought it only needs some lube and oil. However, the condition remains after being serviced by my current watchmaker. He says there is no part missing. He has been working on that watch for over 8 months now, but he is still trying to figure out the problem (well, the watch is there for 8 months but I don't know how often he looks at it).

    I am starting to lose my patience and wonder if there are reputable watchmakers in the SF Bay Area who can handle this type of pocket watches. I am considering bringing my watch back to the Bay Area instead of relying my current watchmaker.

    Thank you in advance.
