74Isea&iIAUTUMN 2011THE SQUARE COMES AROUNDIf this year's mammoth Baselworld watch fair is anything togo by, it is increasingly hip to be square - or at least tohave a few sharp edges to your timepiece. Perhaps themost famous square model is the iconic TAG Heuer Monaco,as worn by the legendary Steve McQueen. Originally known asthe Heuer Monaco, this piece was as groundbreaking as it wasstylish as it was both the world's first automatic chronographand the first chronograph in a square case. Recently re-released, the TAG Heuer Monaco Heuer Calibre 11 Chronographlooks as good today as it did in the 1971 Le Mansfilm.UPDATED ICONSThis year has seen a number of fresh updatesto special originals, including the RoyalOak from Audemars Piguet. The watch-maker has made all manner of adapta-tions to its legendary Royal Oak sinceit was launched in 1972, but the newOffshore Grand Prixversion is one ofits most radical versions to date.It features a forged carbon casethat won't scratch, chip or dent,and a 365-part chronographmovement. The carbon caseensures it is light on the wrist, andbecause of its resistance to saltspray, it is an ideal sailing watch. Just1,750 versions are available, including650 in rose gold and 75 in platinum.MOVEMENTS ON DISPLAYOften a watch's intricacies are concealed,but the last few years have seen everincreasing numbers of watchmakersrevealing the horological masterybeneath skeletonised dials. Zenith'sOpen Power Reserve El PrimeroChronomasteris one example thatreveals the heart of the timepiece.It features a 42mm open case thatpresents the watch's movement.Another technical dimension tothe piece is the heart of the movement,which has been displaced slightly to theten o'clock position on the dial. The watch isavailable in steel or 18ct two-tone or rose gold,with a silver or black sun-burst dial and a brownor black alligator-leather strap. Key design trends of 2011
