Mechanical Watch Full Service
Our full service for mechanical watches consists of the dis-assembly and overhaul of the movement with an examination of all parts. We replace damaged or worn parts and re-seal water-resistant cases. Each of its parts are placed in special chemical solutions that dissolve dirt, dust, and emulsify any dried out oils. When the watch is reassembled, special oils are applied to lubricate all essential parts. We recommend that a general overhaul be performed every three years and that all water-resistant watches be tested once a year for case tightness. In addition, bracelet watch bands are polished and thoroughly cleaned.
Quartz Watch Full Service
Our quartz watch full service consists of the watch dis-assembly, the case and bracelet being polished and thoroughly cleaned in the ultrasonic and the battery being replaced. If needed, the gaskets will be replaced then the watch is resealed to factory specifications. We recommend that all water-resistant watches have their water resistance checked every time the battery is changed.

Summary: Great jewelry repair services
Description: Dale and Linda and the rest of their team at Gems of La Costa are the absolute best. They are honest, reliable, helpful and talented. We originally found them when my husband (then fiance) bought my engagement ring someplace else. We had terrible service, supper snooty interactions with the staff and many disappointments in delivery times with that awful place. We noticed that the original appraisal for the piece came from Gems of La Costa, so we decided to stop in there and see if it was any better. Boy am I glad we did!! We’ve since bought my wedding ring, custom designed my husband’s wedding ring and custom designed a pair of cuff-links for him too all with the help and kind guidance of Dale Condy. Who knew that Dale could take our napkin scribbles and make beautiful jewelry out of it?!
We take all our repairs and special projects to Gems of La Costa. No matter how big or small the project we always feel like we have their full attention and we always get honest trustworthy advice. They’ve solved jewelry repair problems no one else could!! And we always feel like we get a great value. If you are looking for beautiful jewelry, kind courteous caring people and great service – you’ve found the place!
