Jewelry Restoration

Sometimes your jewelry requires more than just a simple cleaning and polishing. Oftentimes, we have vintage jewelry and family heirlooms that have been around for generations. Because of their age, these items tend to lose their luster, gemstones become loose, or the piece becomes misshapen or damaged. This can also happen to our most cherished pieces because we wear them so often. Most people assume these pieces are beyond repair. But think again! At Leo Hamel Fine Jewelers, our Master Jewelers have the skill and knowledge required to restore almost any piece of fine jewelry. Even if you think a piece cannot be restored or repaired, bring it to us for a free estimate. You might be pleasantly surprised. We can restore and repair your jewelry at a price that’s right for you.

If there is any reason we are unable to restore your damaged jewelry, don’t forget that you have other options. Have you considered custom design? We can take the gemstones from your damaged jewelry and create an entirely new piece exactly as you imagine! And it will still hold special significance to you since we’re taking elements from the original piece. Talk to one of our Master Jewelers about what you want to keep and what you want to change and watch your visions come to life.

Complete Watch Overhaul

Is your watch running slow or simply not working properly? Your watch is a machine, and just like all machines, they require servicing on a regular basis. Watch movements are like engines in luxury automobiles. Just like your car can’t run without oil, neither can your watch. If you’re having issues with your watch, bring it to the experts at Leo’s for a free examination and estimate. It may be in need of a complete watch overhaul. Routine watch servicing consists of the following:

  • Complete dismantling of watch and movement
  • Careful inspection of all watch components
  • Thorough cleaning and re-lubrication of all friction points
  • If necessary, replacement or repair of worn or damaged movements, using only original parts
  • Precise reassembling of movement
  • Accurate adjustment of timing to factory specifications
  • Complete refinishing of watch exterior, removing all scratches and restoring the factory finish to case and bracelet
  • Rigorous quality control and testing of timekeeping and water resistance
Luxury watches can run for a lifetime, as long as they are properly maintained. Mechanical watches should undergo this complete watch overhaul every three to five years. We offer a one-year warranty on timekeeping and a 90-day warranty on parts.

Watch Restoration

Just like fine jewelry, luxury watches need to be cleaned and polished in order to preserve their beauty and elegance. When you wear a watch every day it can easily become dirty, scratched or dented. Should you stop wearing your watch just because it’s dirty? Should you consider buying a new watch just because your current one is scratched? Absolutely not! For the best watch restoration services in San Diego visit our team of friendly professionals at Leo Hamel Fine Jewelers. Drop off your watch and we’ll make it look good as new. When you come to pick it up, it will be like you purchased a brand new watch without putting a big dent in your wallet.
