A Watchmaking Art Form At Risk Of Fading Away Is Restored With New Vision and Help From Modern Powerhouse.
RANCHO CUCAMONGA 3/1/22 – Kirk Rich Dial Corporation and My Jewelry Repair today announce a formal partnership between the two companies in an effort to elevate their craft and expand its reach.
“We believe this partnership is the beginning of great new opportunities for both of our companies, not to mention our customers,” says Juan Guevara, CEO of My Jewelry Repair. “Kirk Rich is the leading name in premier dial refinishing because they treat their work like we do, as an art. Together we can share ideas on how to best service our customers all from one location, which is a rarity within the industry.”
Plans are coming together quickly for a new Kirk Rich Dial Co. workshop to be built alongside or expanded upon My Jewelry Repair’s Southern California facilities for the convenience of their customers. With a late January opening a likely possibility.
Watch restorations that require more than the craft of dial refinishing will be handled by the certified technicians at My Jewelry Repair’s elite Watch Repair Service Center.
Kirk Rich Dial Co. has been servicing the trade since 1926 and is the leading name in dial refinishing services in the United States, respected globally for stellar work. Refinishing both antiques and new timepieces, their designs are handcrafted in their own manufacturing facility to meet the highest standards of watchmaking and restoration.
My Jewelry Repair is the leading online jewelry and watch repair service in the United States, holding partnerships with many universally recognized and prestigious brands as well as manufacturers. From master craftsmen to state-of-the-art facilities, they continue in their quest to provide the best Jewelry and Watch Repair experience possible for the customer. My Jewelry Repair sees this new partnership as an example of a core value of the company, that true quality does not come from being great at one aspect, but, rather, this is created by combining the best of every element included in the restoration process.
“While Kirk Rich is at the top of the dial refinishing landscape, they are at risk,” said Guevara, “like many of the rare aspects in watchmaking, their art could be lost if it is not properly passed on. But we believe in restoring memories, and this partnership will enhance both of our companies. While MJR watch customers will all be serviced by the best in dial refinishing, we can help the Kirk Rich team train newer generations to inherit the craft.”
Other modern improvements are being looked at to help Kirk Rich, such as enhanced digital communications, video lessons, and more.
