Thank you very much. I appreciate your words of welcome, advice, and encouragement.

I have a copy of the 2008 Shugart Watch Guide on the way.

My Hamilton Boulton arrived yesterday. It is a beautiful watch, in mint condition. Unfortunately, the plastic crystal came off in transit. The dealer assures me that this is an easy fix. (I don't doubt that.) Would a glass crystal be available for his watch? I would much prefer a glass crystal if that were an option.

So my quest for a good watch repair person begins sooner rather than later.

I don't have a digital camera at the moment, a situation that I hope to rememdy soon, at which time I'll post pictures of the watches for your feedback.

Greetings,

Because this model is one of the most popular Hamilton's, plastic GS crystals are very available and inexpensive. I custom cut and fitted glass or mineral glass crystal could be made. I personally always prefer a real glass crystal. I use Murhpy's Crystal service in Ceres California. You can find the address on www.whitepages.com. If you can't, I can post the address here when I get back into town. They do great work, turn around time is 10 days, and cost is under $30.00.
