JAKARTA, Indonesia (April 23, 2014) Indonesia's military commander, Gen. Moeldoko, who uses a single name, is under fire in the media after he was photographed wearing what appears to be a luxury watch, but he says his critics should back off because the timepiece is actually a cheap Chinese fake.
A Singapore website flagged a picture of the general and his watch this week, saying it was a Richard Mille worth more than $100,000.
Moeldoko, said Wednesday, however, it was a Chinese-made copy that cost just $430.
The website, mothership.sg, also showed photos of Moeldoko wearing other luxury watches, including an Audemars Piguet Millenary, which was either a $43,000 Chronograph or a $476,600 Minute Repeater limited edition.
Moeldoko, who became Indonesia's military chief last August, reported total assets of about $3 million to the country’s anti-graft commission last year.
