Originally launched more than 20 years ago, the Link is one of TAG Heuer’s iconic collections, and now the brand is launching a new, redesigned collection that brings this brand emblem to a new level. Offered in a variety of styles, from a three-hand quartz model to an automatic chronograph, the new Link maintains the codes of the past while carving a new aesthetic.

The famous Link bracelet has been streamlined to a more contemporary look, though the link with the past (sorry) remains unmistakable. Available with either a black or silver dial, the Link pieces feature curved, scratch-resistant sapphire crystal with double-sided anti-reflective treatment for improved readability.
