As one of the most extraordinary designers of the last century, the architect, painter, sculptor and product designer Max Bill left behind an extensive life’s work, including one of the most fascinating watch collections of recent decades.
Seiko Chronograph Automatic 7016 - 5001 “Monaco” Flyback is often referred to as the “Japanese Monaco”, due to its resemblance to Heuer Monaco of the late 60s, made famous by Steve McQueen, and which TAG Heuer is again producing as a Re-Edition. This Japan Domestic Market 7016-5000 takes it even further with its evocative dark blue dial. For 16 years from its debut, Cal. 7016 remained the world’s thinnest mechanical chronograph, only to be beaten by the Piguet Cal. 1185 in the late 80s.
