Title: Malaysia Watch Forum 5th Anniversary GTG Report
Post by: danny on January 12, 2014, 04:39:53 PM
Hi Guys,
This is a new thread for the 5th anniversary GTG report. Feel free to contribute your pics and comments here.
I'm sure all of us had a great time catching up and sharing our passion with fellow Malaysian watch enthusiasts.
In fact a bunch of us proceeded to a second round of drinking right after the main event concluded.
This year we were particularly honored with the participation of Mr. Tong Chee Wei, General Manager of FJ Benjamin Luxury Timepieces.
Thanks to all who participated in the GTG and made this into a successful event, especially our fellow members who came from outstation and overseas (namely dpkong & gucciposh, shamtv2555 and spouse and hanz079 - hope I did not miss anyone out) and a big thank you to all the MODS who did a great job organizing and setting things up.
And our sincere appreciation also goes out to WWII for sponsoring the WOW magazines for door gifts and our very own Hobbit for sponsoring 2 of the lucky draw prizes.
 
:thumbsup:

 :Cheers:

You are missed Yikkie... was looking forward to seeing your Stratos Striking 10th Flyback but it was not to be... oh well... next time then.

I really enjoyed the GTG.
Splash and dash for me is kinda tiring but worth it!!
Got to meet really nice people and mingle with almost everyone.

It was good to finally meet Meoramri and his Landmaster was attention grabbing... a few were thoroughly impressed with it including me.

Good to meet 2 fellow Sabahans now residing in KL... keep up the good work... Sabah Boleh!! hehehe

Thanks to Donald for the awesome hotel arrangement which made me sleep all alone in a huuuuge room with no companion... sob sob.

Good to meet Woon as well... too bad he have to leave early, else we would have more fun... wink wink.

Siodee for putting up with my nonsense talk... cool fellow... hehehe

The turnout is excellent and I hope everyone had a great time like I have.

Will upload some photos later... not much though... at times like these, in the thick of the action discussions, sometimes I forgot I have a camera with me... hehehe

Congratz to the lucky draw winners and hopefully next year's event will be bigger.  :Cheers:

I have a wonderful night....

Thank you all who came

Nvr molest so many watches in a night...

See u guys again next year !

Pheew........luckily quite a number of PAMs turned up for the event, including a very cool looking anti-magnetic titanium PAM 389 belonging to Sean's friend, otherwise Chris may blame me for their poor turnout and ban me from the 2015 gathering. ;D ;D

Zenith Montre D'Aeronef Type 20 GMT... at 48mm... it dwarfs the IWC Big Pilot, but surprisingly wearable.

PAM422... huge at 47mm... A tough one to pull off.

5513... Awesome condition... Would love to go vintage one day... but it's a minefield out there... so will stay a modernist at the moment...  ;D

Richard Mille, one thing I noticed is how small it was.
In pictures it always looked huge.
Cool watch.

Hefty watch with an equally hefty price tag.
Kudos to the Sabahan owner...  :Cheers:

1st time trying on a 46mm Bell n Ross.
Abit too big for my taste but in 3rd person view, it looks good. Weird... hehehe

Another 1st for me as well molesting Grand Seikos.
With limited knowledge about Grand Seikos, I have some trouble appreciating the katana finishing.

The watch that gets alot of attention.
The Landmaster.
Something about this watch just screams attention.
Very cool watch for the price.

I was lucky to be able to molest so many watches and listening to the owners experiences and thoughts.
Was better than listening to a sales pitch definitely.

Thanks again to all the participants.  :thumbsup:

I do notice that MWF is lack of FEMALE members...we can't just drag them in unless they have passion & obsession with watches just like ehem ehem...ME!  :Laughing_on_floor:
There's no need to create another session for female watches...i prefer to see them 'appear' in this forum instead...we are 'One Malaysia' mah  ;D...i personally think there r alot ladies out there who loves watches but technically they dnt discuss/sharing it around like u guys did.

Most ladies that i know only love the design + bling bling on their watches and admiring how good it looks on their wrist.  But some do care what kind of movement/engine their watches got and 'pretty' looking watch is an additional bonus!
Maybe that's why we seldom see female members in this forum because the discussion in here is more towards watch mechanical stuff which i have to admit when the 1st time i read it all through, i find it quite boring  :HammerHead:
As for me, i used to collect few quartz watches long time ago but now i'm only interested in automatic movement ones. The HORROR part is when the 'craving' for much nicer watches out there with at least the price of Perodua Viva creeps in! ::)   :o
