COPYRIGHT © UNIVERSE WATCH TRADING CO., LTD.
Universe Watch was established in 1974, manufacturing mechanical watches. The founder Mr. Steve Wong was originally in the retail business, selling brand name watches. In one occasion, his customer approached him to see if he was interested in producing watches. With this support, Universe started operation in 1974 in the Wong Chuk Hang area, having 200 workers, exporting around 400,000 Quartz analog and 1 million LCD watches monthly.
The assembly line was then transferred to Xixiang in 1988 (rental basis) and then moved to Gongming (own property) in 1993 with a production area of 9500 sq. meter.
With 500 workers, the maximum quantity exported reached 1 million pieces. The range of product cover simple LCD to multi-function digital watches, QA analog watches, ana-digi, accessories and gift sets.
We have our operation in both Hong Kong and Shenzhen. Our Hong Kong operation staff consists of Sales team, Purchasing, Shipping, Accounts, Design and LCD Engineering. All of production is based in China, with around 8 Hong Kong staff stationed there.
