TAG Heuer Link Bella Hadid

The Link Lady designed for Bella Hadid features a clouded black mother-of-pearl dial, diamond indexes, and a diamond-set bezel. Also in 2017, TAG Heuer celebrated 30 years of the Link on the market, with a new version for men. The TAG Heuer Steel Link for Men Calibre 5 retains the bracelet that debuted on the Link Lady, with two rows of S-shaped links, each rounded on the top, bottom and sides. The steel bracelet, with its combination of brushed and polished finishes, integrates seamlessly and fluidly into the case, which measures 41 mm in diameter and features a scratch-resistant, non-reflective sapphire crystal.
The movement, as proclaimed on the dial and in the model’s name, is replica TAG Heuer’s self-winding Calibre 5, which powers the fake watch’s simple three-hand time display with date indication and which is visible through a clear sapphire case back. Three dial colours are offered: silver-plated, black and blue with a sunray finish. Each features baton-shaped steel hour markers and steel hands, all coated with white Super-LumiNova.
TAG Heuer has been known for its chronograph expertise since the very early    days of Uhren Manufaktur Heuer, which the company was called when it was founded in 1860 by Jack Heuer’s great-grandfather, Edouard Heuer, inventor of the oscillating pinion device that has become a standard component in mechanical wrist chronographs to this day. Thus, the next step for the revitalized Link collection was probably inevitable. At Baselworld 2018, the brand introduced a new range of Link chronographs, outfitted with TAG Heuer’s Calibre 17, based on the ETA 2894-2. The chronograph models share the same case design and dimensions as the Calibre 5 men’s models and come in two dial variations, black and blue, with sunray finishes. The replica watches feature a classical three-register layout, with running seconds on a subdial at 3 o’clock, elapsed chronograph minutes at 9 o’clock and elapsed hours at 6 o’clock. The subdials have a subtle snailed motif that reflects light and lends them contrast with the main dial.
Truly a “link” between the tumultuous days of the Quartz Crisis and today’s vibrant marketplace of high complications, vintage revivals and smartwatches, TAG Heuer’s postmodern Link collection gains a crucial niche between classical sport and high-design luxury -a position that may not yet be fully defined, but one that will certainly continue to take shape as the family continues to evolve and its designs perhaps continue to evolve.
