HK Watch market in the 60s'

This is a picture taken at Causeway Bay Tramway Terminus in 1962, note the Ad of Rolex and Longines

What is the Major bellowed brand of Watch in HK in 1960.
I my experience, these are the watch from Switzerland to be popular in HK. Note that Omega earned a better fame than Rolex in 1950 and 1960 because of the Success of Constellation series, and After 1960’s Rolex gained a lot of market share from the Success of Submariner, Explorer and Day Date Series.
This is my categorized watch ranking in 1960s’
Super Hi Class Patek Philippe, Audemas Piguet and Vacheron Constantin
Hi End Omega, Rolex,
Middle class Longines, Rado, Mido
Lower class E. Borel, Titus, Titoni, Tugaris
