Dating back to 1987 the TAG Heuer Link is distinguished by its steel bracelet with S-shaped links.

The first of the new collection of Link watches were launched in 2016, and now the Link Chronograph, which will be available next month, is the latest.

Presented in a stainless steel case with a diameter of 41 mm the Link Chronograph comes with either a black or blue sunray dial. The dial features 3 snailed counters, luminescent applied indices, and baton-shaped hands with lume for the hours and minutes, and a white lacquered central chronograph seconds hand.

Naturally, the bracelet is a key element, and so each link is rounded on the top, bottom, and sides for an exceptionally smooth feel on the wrist.

The watch is driven by an outsourced movement (caliber 17), which is automatic, beats at 4Hz and drives hours, minutes, small seconds, date, and chronograph functions, and has a 42-hour power reserve.

While the Link Chronograph definitely brings back some 1980s and 1990s nostalgia, in a more modern aesthetic, at a price of $4,950 it’s pretty steep compared to other chronographs made by TAG Heuer for not much more but with in-house movements.
