Meet Chi Hang Wong, The Collector Who Gives Away His Rolex Watches

Chi Hang Wong is at home, depressed, browsing the internet, when he discovers the work of LA-based artist Cleon Peterson, whose chaotic paintings show clashing figures as they struggle between power and submission He started reading about watches and now owns about 30 When Wong returned to Hong Kong from boarding school in Ipswich, England, his mother gifted him a watch during a family dinner.

Wong bought his first high-end timepiece in 2010-an extremely rare Jaquet Droz Astrale Twelve Cities-and, not long after that, he exchanged an expensive camera lens from the 1930s for a friend's "Dirty" vintage Rolex During this time, he read about a famous watchmaker who'd made a Disney series of watches "The Moser Swiss Mad watch" In 2017 H Moser & Cie removed the "Swiss Made" label from its watches after changes were made to the regulations on the use of the term.

In an act of protest, the Swiss Mad watch was unveiled, with a case made entirely of cheese. . Source
