When photographer Norman Seeff pressed the shutter on a seated Steve Jobs holding a Macintosh in his lap in his Woodside, California home in 1984, it wasn’t just the Apple founder who was immortalized in that iconic portrait. Seiko‘s minimalist Chariot timepiece that Jobs wore was also inscribed in the annals of horological history, later selling at auction for $42,500 USD last year.
To this end, Seiko has re-released the watch in its original 33mm and new 37.5mm sizes. With 1,982 units produced with a white face and 300 units with a black face, the watches will be sold at ￥20,000 JPY each (approximately $180 USD). However, watch aficionados will have to make their way to Japan for this country-exclusive item, which will hit stores from March 10 onwards.
