Deployant Indonesia was the first to kickoff a series of pre Lunar New Year GTGs dubbed #DeployantGTG2016. Held in Jakarta and Surabaya, some of region’s most important collectoes attended the event to celebrate new acquisitions and also to discuss the members’ horological journey in 2016.
Said Charles Sutanto, Deployant Ambassador for Indonesia: “There were many eclectic pieces with all three main categories represented – independents, large brands and vintages. Definitely the star for this GTG is the Greubel Forsey Invention Piece 1 that was just delivered to a gentlemen member of the group.”
On the vintage side of things, the GTG was also graced by the founder of Vintage Rolex Asylum, who brought his new Rolex Daytona Paul Newman in gold – a highlight of time past amidst the bevy of Richard Milles, Langes and important independent brands. “I have to say that Deployant Indonesia has become quite vibrant what with diversity in interests across all kinds of watches at the higher end of the spectrum.”
#DeployantGTG2016 then headed to Manila under the care of our Philippines Ambassador Looch.
He echoes Charles thoughts: “This is exactly why we formed Deployant, so that the community can learn from each other, to grow, and to experience in full one’s horological journey.”
