Default Seeking Vintage Citizen Repair Expert

Hey all, currently in possession of two vintage Citizens (both with the 8110 movement) that need quite a bit of work and love to get back into wearable condition. If anyone knows of a good member of the community who could assist/advise on repairs I'd be eternally grateful!

There's definitely a lot of good info on Sweephand's vintage Citizen blog. I just had my 67-9119 serviced by Brian Leiser, who goes by '31 Jewels' over on the Watchuseek Citizen subforum. He's very experienced with the 8110a movement. Check out some of his posts over on that forum; he has detailed step-by-step pics of teardown and rebuilding.

Here's one of the interesting threads:

Here's mine. Brian refinished the chrono hands, but left the hour and minute hands original except for fresh lume.
