Restoration/Repair Shop

I am looking for a reputable repair/restoration shop for my Model 1163 GMT. I don't have the original strap or buckle and probably not the crystal or face of bezel. They booth look way too good to be that old and I am pretty sure crystal did not have a magnifying window over date. Everything else seems in pretty good shape. I live in Indiana so the thought of sending it off to some distant place to someone I have never met is a bit daunting. I do think it is worth restoring to point of preserving what I have. Maybe a good shop could even find some original pieces to replace the crystal and face of bezel or even a buckle or strap. Anyway I thought I would start with On the Dash and any recommendations from members.
