Seriously, check out Ebay. That is where I got mind. I don't know of any sulters that reproductions of keywinds (apparently they not made by anyone including the paki's) so you basically have to get an original from approximately that era.

I'm with Tom. There are a million pocket watches on Ebay. Most are from the 1890's to the 1940's BUT if your patient you can get a great antique piece from the 1850-1860's. I got two very nice orginals key wind ups from Ebay. I just sold the one but I use the other one every time I go out to re-enact. It keeps great time and I got it for a great price.
