About Us

Years of Experience in Jewellery and Watch Repairs in Kinross 

Adam Winski, owner and founder of Winski's of Kinross, began learning his trade from his father and uncle in their successful family jewellery business, Winski Bros. which was established in 1948.  After many years of keen study and hands on practice, he finally decided the time was right to establish his own business. However, since then he has continued to update his training to keep abreast of all the latest techniques and developments and is one of the area's top watch repair specialists.

Our History

Owner Adam Winski officially started his family business in 1977. Adam attended one of the first Quartz Watch Repair courses run by the BHI (British Horological Institute) in 1978. After attaining soldering and general jewellery repair skills, he received updated training at a BHI course on Quartz Watch Repair in 1995. Re-establishing the business in 2001 at A J Winski Jewellers in Dunfermline, he took an Advanced Quartz Watch Repair course in 2002 and has also attended an advanced course on Mechanical Watch Escapement Servicing and Repair.

About Us Now

Since those early beginnings, a new business called ‘Winski’s of Kinross’, specialising in watch and jewellery repair, as well as custom-made jewellery was opened in 2011 in Kinross High Street. The shop recently relocated to our new premises in the Liberty Business Centre, also in Kinross High Street. Part of our new location is given over to ‘Quartz Conversions' (www.quartz- conversions.co.uk) which operates from a dedicated workbench, and specialises in the conversion of mechanical watches to quartz. Just visit the website or call in for more details on this process.

Alongside Adam's vast experience and expertise, Jacqueline Winski has diplomas from the National Association of Goldsmiths (NAG) covering Professional Jewellers and Gemmology. She is also a member of the Fellowship of the National Association of Goldsmiths and is able to provide our customers with qualified expert advice and information. In addition, Matthew has now been involved in the family business for almost 5 years and has also completed a Quartz Watch Repair course at the BHI. Our highly trained watch repair specialists are waiting to welcome you to our store.
