A Man of Time

The invention of watchmaking technology enabled humans to measure time, but relying on watchmakers is essential for punctuality. Sego Leung, a dedicated timekeeper, developed a passion for watches from his first childhood timepiece. The mesmerizing experience of witnessing the tiny watch work tirelessly during a silent midnight sparked his future career. After graduating from secondary school, he pursued the study of timepieces and received advanced training in Switzerland. Focusing on the art of watchmaking, Sego became one of the few local watchmakers who handcraft every component of a watch.

The construction and repair of watches involve meticulous and intricate processes. Technological advancements have transformed the role of watches, yet the craft of watchmaking faces challenges, including succession and decline. Sego laments these changes and dedicates his spare time to teaching at vocational training classes and workshops. His goal is to act as a crucial gear, passing on skills and passion to the next generation. By choosing and persisting in his craft, he not only preserves a traditional art form but also helps safeguard our time and memories.
