Now that I see myself catching the vintage omega bug, I would like to find and build a relationship with a watchmaker who will have access to the right parts and have the right knowledge to keep these watches alive and well. I've only ever had the brand service center provide maintenance on my more modern watches, so I would greatly appreciate feedback from you all on independent watchmakers in the US. Here in Maryland, "The watch pocket" in silver spring has a good reputation on yelp and with some members on wus. Has anyone here had experience with them? I'm also very open to sending watches to other institutions in other states. Any advice is greatly appreciated.
