One of Steve Jobs’ most famous photos was taken by Norman Seeff, at his home in Woodside, California in 1984. In the photo, Apple Co-founder Steve Jobs sits on the ground, holding a Macintosh, wearing a small-sized, ordinary, unremarkable Seiko watch from the wrist. Last year, the original Seiko Chariot watch that Steve Jobs had worn was sold for $ 42,500. It is reported that Seiko will cooperate with Tokyo clothing design retailer Nano Universe to re-launch classic replica timepieces in the Japanese domestic market in the form of limited editions.

Photographer Norman Schiffer later recalled Time magazine: ‘We just sat and talked about his creativity and everyday items in the living room. I started to establish a close relationship with him, he rushed out, returned, and then He sat there with his buttocks. He naturally put the Macintosh on his lap and sat down, and I caught this moment. Then, we took a few more photos, and he even did a few yoga poses-Jobs lifted up Legs, then put them on the shoulders-it feels like we are two old friends hanging out, chatting and enjoying this relationship. There is no prior creative, completely improvisational, spontaneous, we never thought about (That photo) will be the cover of the magazine. ‘
