Hear What Judges Say
“It’s amazing to see many creative works from talented designers in this year’s Hong Kong Watch & Clock Design Competition and most of their designs are feasible. The competition provides a great opportunity and a good channel for different people to get involved in the watch business. In my opinion, watch design is all about our own taste. Designers should try to create different shapes and appearances rather than just following the trend.”
Emme Wong, Manager, Galtiscopio Ltd
“The contestants of this year’s Hong Kong Watch & Clock Design Competition have demonstrated a lot of innovative and interesting design concepts, but some designs have room for improvement. I think that the contestants should give a thorough consideration to every aspect of a watch by making their design appealing while adding commercial value. Everyone has a watch and how to make consumers buy a new one is not easy at all. We need to have groundbreaking concepts to make our products more attractive. The competition itself helps to develop more design talents to support the development of Hong Kong’s watch and clock industry.”
Mark Lui, Composer, Producer and Designer
