Vintage watch repair?

I have an older watch (ca. 1950s) that has stopped running and needs repair, but I'm really at sea trying to find a place to do the repair, so I thought I'd turn to PS for suggestions.

I live in the DC area and would prefer someone around here, but I'm willing to send the watch off if necessary.

It's a nice watch, but it's not a fine piece. I'm willing to pay a fair price for good work - I'm not looking for super cheap - but I don't want to pay a fortune, if that makes sense.

So, do y'all know of any good watch repairmen?

I would recommend asking this question at Timezone.com.

I've had my vintage watch and pocket watch repaired at places recommended from forum users, with great results. I lived in Boston at the time and went to Paul Duggan (http://www.pduggan.com/) for my watch from the 1950s. For my pocket watch, I sent it to The Escapement (https://home.comcast.net/~k_singer/Escapement.htm) in GA. Both places did a great job. I also live near DC, so if you find a place, please let us know.
