Hi -

Pocket watch cases will be a custom job, I fear: most pocket watches were worn as is, attached by chain to part of the clothing. I'm sure you're familiar with the picture of a banker with a three-piece suit with a gold chain to his pocket watch... it's even on the cover of the game Monopoly. :)

You could also check these links:

or find a good watchmaker in your area as they often have networks of parts supply we don't know about. Size 0 is not all that common. Maybe get a junk watch for parts on eBay and use its case.
