Here is another blog posting on the TAG Heuer Monaco re-issue that makes an appearance on Breaking Bad --
: Don't know if any of you watch Breaking Bad on AMC, but I happen to
: think it's the best show on television and one of the greatest
: dramatic series ever.
: In last week's episode, there was an interesting Heuer placement.
: Walter White, the protagonist, gets a present from his business
: partner Jesse, for his 51st Birthday.
: A watch. A blue faced Heuer Monaco reissue on a leather band.
: Everyone makes a big deal of the gift, and the closing shot of the
: episode is a close up of the watch, ticking loudly, and stopping
: at a time that might (or might not) provide a significant clue
: about the end of the series.
: On the discussion boards, the fans kept calling it a Rolex, but I
: think it was pretty cool that they chose a Heuer.
: Not sure why they chose the Heuer, aside from the fact that it's
: very distinctive looking.
: Here are more details and a screen capture.
