175th Anniversary

Our commitment continues

With a history dating back to 1841, A.S. Watson Group is one of the longest standing and most established companies in Hong Kong. We are privileged to be able to witness and grow alongside Hong Kong’s transformation from a fishing village to become a global city and the centre of international trade. From our humble beginning as a local dispensary, A.S. Watson has now become the world’s largest international health and beauty retailer with a portfolio of over 15,000 retail stores. We are proud to have taken a Hong Kong-based company to a leading position in the world retail landscape. Looking ahead, we strive to continue our expansion in Hong Kong and overseas, as well as to deliver our promise of providing quality products and shopping experiences to customers. In celebration of our 175th Anniversary in 2016, we have designed a set of illustrations to tell the stories of our brands’ bonding with Hong Kong citizens, from where we began to where we are going.
