Default 2" Hygrometer on Humi

My Thompson Humidor has a 2" hygrometer built into the front of it. It is inset into a 1 3/4" hole and has a small gold-toned bezel.

I managed to smash the glass on the dial the other day. Any one know where I can get another? I wrote to Thompson Cigars but they said they don't use those kind anymore and don't have any for sale.
I've seen some 2" ones online, but they don't usually list whether they're for this type of inset application, and often don't say how deep they are.

It doesn't have to be a very good one, since I have a digital hygrometer inside the humi. I just want it for appearances.

A picture is below. (taken before I smashed it.)

I have never purchased from this site; Premium Humidors offers one with 2" OD, but doesn't give the inset measurement.

Cuban Crafters has on that is 2.5 OD with an inset of 1.75. Looks like you should have enough room, and I have purchased from this company with good results.

Since you bought it from them, why not contact Thompson and see if they have a replacement?

He tried.

Honestly I would get a digital hygro. I tried the analog for about a month on something similar. And it was no where close to correct. But if you want the analog one good luck getting it replaced! Do you know the manufacturer?
