Watch Fever Gathering moved to Kowloon City.

The Stone House Café where we enjoyed the whole afternoon with over ten watch collectors today

Surrounding area of the Stone House Café

During the Song Dynasty (960-1279), Kowloon City was a part of Kwun Fu Cheung (官富場), which was a part of salt yard governed by Chinese officials. Part of the district was the location of the original Kowloon Walled City, erected during the Qing Dynasty.
Kowloon Walled City was a densely populated, largely ungoverned settlement area in Kowloon City. Originally a Chinese military fort, the Walled City became an enclave after the New Territories were leased to Britain in 1898. Its population increased dramatically following the Japanese occupation at World War II. There were 33,000 residents within its (6.4-acre) borders by 1987.
From the 1950s to the 1970s, it was controlled by Triads and had high rates of prostitution, gambling, and drug deals. I was living at the Tung Tau  Estate just opposite the Kowloon Walled City during my entire primary school education.
I had witnessed those sex shows with just 5 dollars,  (Witnessed means I was aware, did not mean I entered the show), prostitutions, and watching drug addicts took heroin inside the alley that no police was allowed to enter.

Starting with the top one clockwise: Yellow Gold Day Date Ref 118238, Daytona 116520, AP Royal Oak, GMT Master II Green Pointer Ref 116710LN, IWC, Submariner in Yellow Gold 116618LB, DeepSea D Blue, Submariner Hulk, Day Date 18239, 1803 white gold in oyster rivet bracelet.
