According to a report in Great Bend Tribune, Charles Dawson's initial focus on precise timekeeping, crucial for the era's railway operations, laid the groundwork for a durable business. However, as the demand for mechanical watch repair declined with the rise of quartz watches, Dawson adapted, shifting towards jewelry work.

Today, the business stands out under Dana Dawson for its in-house design and creation process. From sketching customer ideas to casting and setting stones, Dawson handles all aspects of jewelry making. The shop also embraces modern techniques and materials, including lab-created diamonds and recycled gold.

The report adds that report and restoration services are another cornerstone of Dawson, highlighting the importance of preserving jewelry pieces' sentimental and historical value.
