A fortnight ago, it was a cloudy Sunday afternoon when we held our second watch get-together event. Despite being held at a neatly tucked-away corner of Bangsar, Kuala Lumpur, and the (annoyingly) limited parking space, our fellow Malaysian watch enthusiasts managed to find us nonetheless. And judging from their smiles upon the event’s conclusion, we as Team Matick can proudly call the event another resounding success.
Just like our first GTG, we had a fantastic spread of both vintage and modern pieces on display, owned by extremely knowledgeable watch lovers. As a budding enthusiast, there are few things more satisfying than witnessing so many experts sharing their love for their hobby, and the camaraderie on display was nothing short of breathtaking.
With little doubt, the highlight of the day was having our very own Malaysian rap-god, Altimet, join us for the event. While he couldn’t stay for the event’s duration (such is the busy life of a celebrity, we would imagine!), his love for watches and humility was clear and infectious; just ask anyone who had a chat with him!
To those who spared their Sunday afternoon to spend some time with us, thanks so much for coming and we promise to the make the next one even better! This means if you have any suggestions for what we could do to make these meetups more fun for everyone, we are happy to hear them and will personally thank you for it. Finally, we would like to extend a very special thank you to Charles and the team at The Flowerpecker for graciously hosting us for the event, and providing us with some very interesting alcoholic concoctions as excellent accompaniments to our watch talk!
Thanks again for coming and see you at the next meet!
Meanwhile, have a browse through some snaps taken on the day.
