New TAG Heuer Link Chronograph

Post by AtomicTom » Thu Feb 01, 2018 9:12 am

Has everyone already checked out TAG Heuer's new Link Chronograph?

The new watch will have a brushed, and polished 41mm stainless steel case,
100m WR, AR coated flat sapphire crystal, black, or blue sunray dials with
nice sub-dials, faceted, and polished rhodium plated markers, and hands with
Super-Luminova, integrated S-Shaped link bracelet, and Calibre 17 there
underneath everything.

Have a few pictures right here...

Bracelet drives me nuts, but I'll be damned if that ain't real nice looking.

Thanks Tom!

I’ve actually always liked the link. Also, I’m a fan of the brand as a whole. I know there are a lot of haters out there, probably because Tags are overpriced for what you get, but I like most of their models because I’m not a real WIS ;)

I'm a fan of the bracelet while new, but they always look like bollucks and cheap when well worn.

My first “good”watch was a blue quartz Link in like 2000 when I was in college. Damn I thought it was so cool. The guy at the mall jewelry store gave me 15% off. I still have a soft spot for this bracelet style.

Popped my cherry on a Tag, too. Except it was the OG black dial S/EL chronograph that predated the “Link”. I wore that watch for probably 25 years, and it’s still running strong and waiting for my oldest to discover it.

I’ll third or is it forth this, my first was a Tag Aquaracer, solid as rock, beat it for years and it’s still going strong. To this day the bezel action is as it was on day one even after years of salt water, grease, grim, etc etc etc. I can’t say that for any of my other watches (given my experience isn’t extensive but most have disappointed me and this one hasn’t)

I’ve liked links in the past but somethings off to me here. The bracelet case ratio doesn’t look right to me and the Monzaish case doesn’t work for me. Mostly the bracelets too wide.

I thought the tag kirium was the coolest looking watch in the late 90s. I bought a fake one on a trip to NYC. Don’t ban me.

not a big fan of the integrated bracelet style these days though.

The blue looks good. Think the minute hand could have been just a tiny bit shorter, almost looks like it belongs in a larger case...

I like everything about the watch except the date window position.

Blue's not bad looking. I don't love the bracelet integration to the case, but It could be overlooked.
