Heisenberg Time - L.A. Style - Los Angeles magazine

Heisenberg Time

With the final season of Breaking Bad airing in just a few days, we started binge-watching the show on Netflix all over again. Funny, how you notice little things the second time around... Like, the fact that Walter White wears the same Tag Heuer "Monaco" made famous by Steve McQueen in the 1971 movie Le Mans. It was the world's first square chronograph and on the wrist of sexy action star McQueen the timepiece became an icon. Without spoiling anything for anyone, the above screen shots happen during one of many pivotal moments in the AMC series. On the left, Walter White looks at his watch, the screen cuts to a close up of the Monaco (image on right above), and then closer still on the watch's ticking hands. Turns out Heisenberg's style goes beyond that pork pie hat...
