Objectives

The objective of the Centre is to assist the local watch & clock industry to strengthen their competitiveness and leading position in the global market. The Centre acts as a central body to transfer relevant technologies to support Hong Kong manufacturers. It also provides independent testing services in quality assurance, and particularly in areas where tests are unavailable commercially.

To help the local watch and clock industry sustain its leading position in the global market, Hong Kong manufacturers must invest in new technologies, improve product quality and management capabilities. The services provided by the Centre help them achieve these goals.
