Among Tag Heuer’s mainstay watch collections is the Link. I believe it was originally introduced in the late 1980s, and has been a major part of the brand’s image since then. The Link’s DNA has always been linked to its bracelet – offering a special look that many have tried to replicate. For 2011 Tag Heuer updates and refines the entire TAG Heuer link watch collection. I sat down with Tag Heuer’s CEO Mr. Babin to talk all about it.
I previously wrote about a hot sale cheap replica TAG Heuer watch here when doing a review a few years ago. Owning a previous Link model helped me to see the differences that Tag Heuer was able to give the new collection. For the time being the collection is a bit more formal and dressy than its sportier parents. Tag Heuer will likely move into a sport direction later, but have been really focused on a good mature look with their recent mainstream models.
Link case sizes are going to be between 40 – 43mm wide for now. At launch, there will be a lot of models with either Swiss quartz or mechanical movements. The basic quartz model will be 40mm wide with a three-hand movement. There will also be a 43mm wide quartz chronograph model with Tag Heuer’s popular Calibre S movement. Up from there are at least three automatic watches. These contain either the Tag Heuer Calibre 5, 6, or 16 movements Basically, as far as I can tell, the 2011 Link will have five product subranges, each with its own range of colors and styles. The differences between certain models is extremely subtle – such as the difference between Arabic or Roman numerals on the bezel.
The Calibre 6 model will be 40mm wide with a subsidiary seconds hand – and probably the most elegant Link look. The Calibre 5 automatic on the other hand is 42mm wide and is the day/date model. I like the integration of the day/date information. The windows are symmetrically stacked on the bottom of the dial, and the day of the week window has the entire day spelled out as is common on Rolex President watches.
The Link automatic chronograph will have the Calibre 16 and is 43mm wide. This movement is a base ETA Valjoux 7750. All the watches have sapphire crystals and are pretty darn comfortable on the wrist. Tag Heuer’s reputation for comfort and refinement in recent times really comes from watches like the Carrera and Link.The replica watches and genuine,TAG Heuer Link replica watch compared with the genuine appearance similarity of up to 98%. But on our website very favorable prices.
