2017 sees three silver-plated dial color versions of the TAG Heuer Link Calibre 5 Replica which are silver, blue, or a dark gray (black) color. The case is all steel and 41mm wide, with a sort of cushion-style look which is integrated into the tapering Link bracelet. The case/bracelet integration makes for a cohesive look similar in concept to the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak or Patek Philippe Nautilus, which is one good reason such designs have endured for so long.
One design element which very much defines the 2017 TAG Heuer Link models is case polishing. Many of the Link watches I remember have all brushed/satin polished cases, whereas the 2017 collection has contrasting polished and brushed surfaces. This is most apparent in the bracelet, which with this new amount of polish offers a lot of shine compared to more matte-finished TAG Heuer Link bracelets of a while ago. Interestingly enough, Cheap Tag Heuer Replica makes some other watches with Link-style bracelets in both the Carrera and Formula 1 collections.
The polished elements of the bracelet links are on the sides or edges, while the surfaces are brushed. This makes for a very attention-grabbing but also masculine look. I do believe that this allows the TAG Heuer Link to be among the few watches out there which can be a true “men’s jewelry” piece. The case echoes the look of the bracelet to a degree as the flat bezel is brushed with a chamfered polished side.
Inside the TAG Heuer Link for 2017 is a AAA TAG Heuer Calibre 5 Fake Watch three-hand automatic mechanical movement, which is a base Swiss Sellita SW200. This is very similar to an ETA 2824 and operates at 4Hz with about two days of power reserve. You can see the movement through the sapphire crystal on the rear of the case. Unfortunately, the movement is more or less totally un-decorated, so the view through the back of the case for seasoned watch lovers leaves a bit to be desired.
The case is water resistant to 100 meters, and over the dial is a flat, AR-coated sapphire crystal. With all the curves of the case, I sort of wonder what the TAG Heuer Link would look like with a slightly domed sapphire crystal. The dial’s hour markers and hands are very well-proportioned with the latter being extremely well-sized. While most dress watches are a bit more subdued and discreet, the dial of the Popular TAG Heuer Link Replica is filled with large-sized elements ranging from the hands and the hour markers to the text and TAG Heuer logo itself. This is the most “larger than life” TAG Heuer Link I’ve ever seen.
