Indonesia’s General Moeldoko has got an exquisite taste for watches
If you are in uniform every day, the only way to express your sense of style is through the watch.
In case you missed it, General Moeldoko was put on watch lovers’ radar when The Millenary carried an article on him wearing a Richard Mille watch. The watch is purportedly sold for upwards of USD$100,000.
Scouring the internet for photographs of Gen. Moeldoko, we stumbled upon some pictures of him sporting other watches which are really quite exquisite. You may need to open the images in new tabs and zoom in with your browser for a closer look.
1. IWC Pilot’s Watch Chronograph Top Gun Miramar
According to watch aficionado website Hodinkee: “This is a weekend watch, for t-shirt and jeans, and in summer for wearing in the outdoors. I can’t imagine a scenario in which this watch would complement an outfit even remotely close to buttoned up, but I don’t think it would pretend to care about what the inside of your office looked like. The dial configuration takes after the pilot’s watches from WWII, with the minute track laid out where the hours normally are and a beautiful red “sector” style inner track that displays hours.”
List price: USD$12,700
2. Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore Jarno Trulli Chronograph
According to watch blog site A Blog to Watch: “Emphasis is on the forged carbon case, high-tech cermet (cool metal ceramic hyrbid material) dial, and the titanium crown and pushers. In a sober looking gray, the Jarno Trulli is dressed up a bit with bright red elements on the dial.”
List price: USD$38,300
3. Audemars Piguet Millenary (Could either be the Chronograph or Minute Repeater Version)
L: Chrono, R: Minute Repeater
A Blog to Watch on the Chronograph: “I just wouldn’t expect an 18k rose gold-cased Audemars Piguet watch with an in house chronograph movement to go for that “low” of a price. I must have luxo-fever. But for $35,000 you can’t go too wrong with this beautiful chronograph version of Audemars Piguet’s lovely Millenary watch.“
List Price: USD$43,000
Watch Collecting Lifestyle on the Minute Repeater: “This fascinating complication and elegant watch is powered by the entirely conceived, developed and produced Audemars Piguet hand-wound calibre 2928 composed of 443 parts, 40 jewels, flat double balance-spring and that provides a power reserve of almost seven days —165 hours— when fully wound. The beautiful calibre with its horizontal ‘Côtes de Genève’ decoration can be fully appreciated via the display case back.”
List Price: USD$476,600
