So, I'm very excited about my new Studebaker watch and am interested in possibly getting more. Is it likely I can find usable, working ones less than $100? I'd be looking for one that is in fair shape, attractive to me but still worked. No need for a railroad grade collectible.
With that goal in mind, where does one get cases for working mechanisms? I've noticed a few of those sorts of animals on eBay, but I'm not sure how or where one goes about getting a case to install a watchwork into.
What sort of price should I expect for a watchmaker to ask to install a mechanism into a new case?
