Tatler Singapore



At a watch auction in New York last month, Phillips, in associatio­n with Bacs & Russo, sold a Tag Heuer Monaco worn by actor Steve Mcqueen during the filming of his iconic racing film Le Mans (1971). On the last day of filming, Mcqueen gave the timepiece to his personal mechanic, Haig Alltounian, who treasured it for nearly 50 years. Introduced in 1969, the Monaco was one of the world’s first self-winding chronograp­h wristwatch­es and became famous for its squareshap­ed waterproof case.
