    My Grandfather's Elgin

    Hi all,I recently received my grandfather's Elgin (though it's probably my great-grandfather's since it's pre-1900) and it needs a little work.She still runs, the porcelain is good and the glass only has the usual ding on the bottom but the minute hand needs reblueing and the minutes read about 10 minutes behind (for instance, when the hour hand is dead on 10pm, the minute hand is on 50min).My question is, does anyone know a really good pocketwatchman in the Philly/South Jersey area that can do some work on my family heirloom? If not local to me, someone that I can send it to?I didn't know this watch was in my family until recently and getting her refurbished properly is very important to me as the line before me is all gone.Thanks for your time.

    This guy looks interesting. He's a member of the NAWCC which is always a good sign.
