Wrist Game Or Crying Shame: TAG Heuer Link Chronograph

HomeWrist Game or Crying ShameWrist Game Or Crying Shame: TAG Heuer Link Chronograph Wrist Game or Crying ShameWrist Game Or Crying Shame: TAG Heuer Link Chronograph Do you have the itch for neo-retro kitsch for €1,394? by Michael Stockton June 17, 2020 MIN READWrist Game Or Crying Shame: TAG Heuer Link Chronograph Wrist Game Crying ShameWelcome back to Wrist Game or Crying Shame, the weekly series that often brings back memories from your halcyon days. Let’s see if the TAG Heuer Link Chronograph moistens your eyes for the right or wrong reasons. But first…
Last week, I showed you the Glashütte Original Senator Navigator. Even though that watch used a design heavily inspired by WW2 bomber watches, you felt it was “Original” enough to land a 58% Wrist Game win. For the proponents, I agree with you — great watch! This week’s subject won’t take its inspiration from anything nearly that old, but the TAG Heuer Link Chronograph has certainly inspired me to travel back in time. Let’s go for a..

16 Grails in the Vintage Heuer World

HomeWatch Talk16 Grails in the Vintage Heuer World Watch TalkHeuer16 Grails in the Vintage Heuer World Chasing Vintage Heuer Grails With On The Dash by Robert-Jan Broer May 14, 2020 MIN READ16 Grails in the Vintage Heuer WorldOur friend Jeff Stein from OnTheDash shows his grails from Heuer. An amazing article with an overview of his Heuers with beautiful close-up pictures and descriptions.
I confess I don’t know that much about Heuer. There are other Fratelli that have more knowledge about these. There are also websites like Jeff Stein’s OnTheDash. His website is considered to be the authority on the subject. I’ve had the pleasure to meet Jeff for the first time not too long ago in Switzerland, but we have known each other for much longer as we shared an old friend in common.

Throwback Thursday: Heuer Autavia GMT

When people think of a vintage sports watch with a second timezone, the Rolex GMT-master is often one that comes to mind first. However, there have been more imposing sports watches with this complication, like the Heuer Autavia GMT. The one we have here is from around 1970 and part of the second generation of reference 2446, with its distinct red chronograph hand, larger registers, and fluted pushers. READ MORE

TAG Heuer Adds New Blue Dial To Aquaracer Calibre 7 GMT Lineup

If you dive, there’s a pretty good chance that you don’t do it in your own backyard — or even in your own local time zone, for that matter. So, it goes without saying that the added functionality of an extra time zone on a dive watch makes a whole hell of a lot of sense — it’s just a shame that there really aren’t that many of them out there. TAG Heuer seems to be doing its best to add to the mix with a new blue-dialed Aquaracer GMT (ref. WAY201T) equipped with a bi-colored aluminum 24-hour bezel.
The Aquaracer Calibre 7 GMT ref. WAY201T The Aquaracer Calibre 7 GMT ref. WAY201F
Unlike the Rolex GMT Master II, which unofficially coined this bi-color blue and black “Batman” color scheme, the Aquaracer is positioned as a true dive watch, offering three times the water resistance at 300 meters. It also differs from the GMT Master from a functional standpoint, as its Calibre 7 engine uses the tradit..

TAG Heuer Connected Smartwatch For 2020 Hands-On

Five years after launching the original TAG Heuer Carrera Connected, Swiss TAG Heuer now launches its latest smartwatch in 2020, the simply-named TAG Heuer Connected (debuted on aBlogtoWatch here). Launched in New York City at a special event around the Connected product, TAG Heuer was rightfully proud of its latest “connected” creation.
The 2020 TAG Heuer Connected builds on the brand’s previous smartwatches while adding a host of refinements. It goes without saying that this is the highest-performance smartwatch the luxury brand has made, since it uses the latest hardware and technology. On top of that, however, one can easily say that the 2020 TAG Heuer Connected is the most refined smartwatch TAG Heuer has made, given a host of subtle details that make it both highly wearable and enjoyable to use.

One of the best parts of the concept is how TAG Heuer designed the Connected to be as long-lasting (without needing to be replaced) as possible. A good example is a special system that..

TAG Heuer Connected Smartwatch For 2020 Emphasizes Luxury Style For Modern Wearers

Today, Swiss TAG Heuer timepieces is launching its next major smartwatch release with the simply-named new TAG Heuer Connected. This latest luxury smartwatch from TAG Heuer will go on sale today. The aBlogtoWatch team will experience the 2020 TAG Heuer Connected firsthand shortly, but for now, some quick points about this new customizable smartwatch experience.
TAG Heuer was an early innovator in luxury smartwatches. In 2015, the company released the first TAG Heuer Connected which boasted a novel sales concept (see above article) and was shocked by the initial sales success. About a year later, the brand updated the TAG Heuer Connected and introduced the now very popular modular customization concept that allows for a large range of visual variety in each person’s own smartwatch — both in terms of on-screen software and the watch case and bracelet itself. Now in 2020, with TAG Heuer being run by a new team, the TAG Heuer Connected is back with a refreshed case, lots of new software, ..

TAG Heuer Carrera Silver Limited Edition Celebrates 160 Years Of The Iconic Timepiece

TAG Heuer is celebrating its 160 years of fine watchmaking history with the release of the new TAG Heuer Carrera Silver Limited Edition.
The limited edition only has 1,860 pieces, as a nod to the very year the company was founded by Edouard Heuer in Saint-Imier, Switzerland.
The new design revives the 1960s Tag Heuer Carrera line, featuring “One of 1860″ and “LIMITED EDITION” engraved on the case-back of every watch in the collection, and powered by 21st-century innovation in watchmaking.

In 1962, then-CEO Jack Heuer heard of the South American race, the Carrera Panamericana, and knew “Carrera” (Spanish for “road”, “race”, “career” and “course”) was the perfect name for a new timepiece, which was debuted in 1964. The Heuer Carrera is a perpetual presence on the wrist of drivers around the world. The silver-dial model (known by horologists as the “2447S”) is being re-introduced in the new edition with new updates.

The new Carrera Silver Limited Edtion has its predecessor’s dial an..
