One of the last surviving pre-war buildings in Central, the Pedder Building was once known as the famous Pedder Street clock tower before a re-design, at the early 90s, turned it into commercial use. The clock tower was originally built in 1861, reaching up to 80 feet, with a total of five floors and was already renowned for the role of timekeeping across the city as well as prestige landmark in Central throughout the centuries.
The Pedder building is a “Grade II Historic Building,” as instructed by the Hong Kong Antiquities and Monuments Office.
As the sole remaining historical building on Pedder Street, it has it’s own rare unique appearance, heritage value and remains as an authentic and stunning piece of architecture gracefully sitting amongst the bustling city.
It forms a quite unique and picturesque scene in commercialized Central. It is remarkable that this old building still survives in the heart of Hong Kong.
Its existence symbolizes the distinctive character with which classic and contemporary, arts and commerce both merge harmoniously, emulating the ethos and philosophy of any watch collection in the The Lavish Attic.
