These TAG Heuer Link Replica Watches models outfitted with the Calibre 5 are the most basic three-handed Link models. And if history is anything to go by, there will be more complicated models coming with features such as GMT, chronograph, and even retrograde display complications. For now, three references will be offered with the key difference being the dial color.
The biggest change with these new Cheap Tag Heuer Replica Link Calibre 5 models is the case. The case is still made out of stainless steel, but the size has been enlarged by a single millimeter to 41mm. Next, the shape of the case has been changed to something that is a hybrid of a round case and a cushion case. Actually, what’s happening here is that the base is a cushion-shape, whereas the bezel is round. It certainly does give the new Fake Tag Heuer Watches models a more elegant look. Water resistance is 100 meters, which is adequate for a sports watch.
Another change to note is the lugs’ new design that allow for the bracelet to be integrated into the case. The bracelet still sports the iconic S-shaped links and also features alternating polished and brushed finishes for a more refined look. The links are also rounded on the edges for better wearing comfort. An integrated lug design, of course, means that other straps won’t fit on it, which is a bit of a bummer for enthusiasts that like to change around the looks of their Swiss Tag Heuer Watches– though, that might not matter much, as the bracelet is such a big part of the TAG Heuer Link’s identity.
Three dial options are available: silver, black, and blue. The silver and black dial variants are the most traditional and elegant. Whereas the blue version, with its sunray finish, is easily the most sporty of the trio. The hands as well as the baton indices for the hours are crafted out of steel and are filled with white Super-LumiNova. At 12 o’clock, you have the Tag Heuer Replica in applique, and at 6 o’clock you have the model name and movement inscribed onto the dial. Lastly, there’s a date window at 3 o’clock.
The new TAG Heuer Autavia Replica is not only officially debuted, but according to TAG Heuer. Two versions of the “Nina Rindt” re-issue TAG Heuer Autavia will be available, with one on a “rain grain” steel metal bracelet, and the other on a brown vintage-style leather strap. Otherwise, the two models are the same. Given the already apparent success of the TAG Heuer Autavia watch, its desirable movement, and accessible price point – it does beg the question of where TAG Heuer will both take the newly re-animated Cheap Tag Heuer Replica collection, as well as the Calibre Heuer 02 movement next?
The TAG Heuer Autavia Calibre Heuer 02 Fake Watches comes in a polished steel case that is 42mm wide. True to the originals, it has a bi-directional rotating timing bezel with a black aluminum hour marker insert. The most desirable trait of the watch from a collector’s standpoint is the “panda dial” style which means the subdials are a contrasting color from the dial on a more or less monochromatic palette. This not only emphasizes legibility but happens to look beautiful as well. Note the use of “Heuer” only on the dial even though this is a modern TAG Heuer watch.
Thankfully, you can view the caliber Heuer 02 movement through the caseback – and it offers a lot of contrast with the otherwise vintage style of the Swiss Tag Heuer Watches given how modern it looks. It feels like opening up an old muscle car and finding a modern engine block inside. It is actually pretty cool.
TAG Heuer renders the Autavia to look like a vintage Tag Heuer Replica, but it sure doesn’t feel like one. Pretty much the only “retro” construction element is the black anodized aluminum bezel. Though, this does help add to the overall retro look. TAG Heuer polished the case very nicely, and it feels both solid and comfortable on the wrist.
Three silver-plated dial color versions of the TAG Heuer Link Calibre 5 Fake Watch which are silver, blue, or a dark gray 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 Cheap Tag Heuer Replica Watches 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.
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 Replica Watches 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.
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 Swiss Tag Heuer Watches 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 TAG Heuer Link is filled with large-sized elements ranging from the hands and the hour markers to the text and TAG Heuer logo itself.
Small details throughout the entire design help round out a sense of refinement, even if the combination of case design, dial, and bracelet don’t work for everyone. As I mentioned, I like the Tag Heuer Replica bracelet design, complicated polishing, and even things like the slightly tapering crown and crown guards.
