I have a WW2 USAAF 8-day clock, made by Elgin, that needs servicing and cosmetic restoration. Who does this kind of work? My jeweler can't find anyone local who will work on it. One fellow did take a look, but he specializes in antique clocks rather than watches (these clocks have a watch-type movement).
