Can anyone suggest where to get shaped watch glasses cut?

 

I keep coming across watches with odd shaped glasses which cannot be sourced through the brand supplier or through someone like cousins.

 

Jevon and stanley are good but I'm guessing they outsource them themselves as they soooo long.

 

Any ideas?

I had a similar problem. I sent my shaped glasses off to someone, who sent it elsewhere. Time scale wasn't really a problem, cost to me and expected retail to customer just were not compatible to a healthy profit. Also customer expectations were sometimes not met.
Dropped it as a service, if a customer comes in with a shaped glass I redirect them to the manufacturer.
I only multi-task at work, don't tell my wife.

I usually grind down a glass on the Tormak it takes ages and often more than one attempt.

It's not something I offer as a trade service anymore because I loath doing them, but it can be done
