Updated September 27, 2014

Leonard Just, watch and chronometer maker, was listed as a resident of Hong Kong in 1846. Queen's Road was listed as his address in 1846.

Just went to Canton in ca.1829 and then Macau, where he carried on his watchmaking business under the name of Just and Son., although, it was said, that his son, Leonard Just, Jr., was only an apprentice of his. He came to Hong Kong in 1846. Just Jr. branched out in the same year and ran his business at D'Aguilar Street.
