What has a sleek look with a tachymeter bezel, patented electro-mechanical movement, and a perpetual calendar? The TAG Heuer Link Calibre S.
The TAG Heuer Link Calibre S is the “techie’s” watch because it is fully loaded with some amazing technical specifications, new patents, and features all combined into a luxury sports watch. The TAG Heuer Link Calibre S watch has 230 components and 5 bidirectional micromotors… it’s a watch lover’s dream come true. Two special features of the watch include the reverse-movement date display that can be accessed in time mode and the different abilities of measuring time including simple time, split time and two interval times.
However, the electro-mechanical movement it what makes this watch so different from other sports watches; but watch exactly is an electro-mechanical movement? TAG Heuer’s patented electro-mechanical movement combines mechanical movement and quartz timekeeping to increase functionality. In this case the functions are TIME mode and CHRONOGRAPH mode.
Lastly is the stunning design of the dial, hands, case, and even the glass. The dial of the watch has hand applied luminescent index markers to increase legibility in the dark. This TAG Heuer watch also carries the TAG Heuer Logo and the inscription “LINK-Calibre S” on the dial beneath the 12 o’clock marker. The hour, minute, and second hands of the TAG Heuer Link Calibre S Watch are angled and luminous for optimal reading at night. The case is approximately 42mm in diameter and includes satin-finished steel and completed with scratch resistant sapphire crystal on both sides, anti-reflective coating on both sides of the glass for increased legibility.
Some other specifications of the TAG Heuer Link Calibre S watch include a tachometer bezel, screwed in case back, 200 meters of water resistance, and an S Link bracelet.

The TAG Heuer Carrera Automatic Chronograph Day-Date is another version of the popular TAG Heuer Carrera. The TAG Heuer Carrera is a watch that TAG Heuer rivals have tried to compete with since it came on the scene as the ultimate stop watch. The TAG Heuer Carrera comes in two luxury sports watch versions for men, The TAG Heuer Carrerra Automatic Chronograph Tachymetre, which we discussed in the past and The TAG Heuer Automatic Chronograph Day-date, which we will review today.
The TAG Heuer Carrera Automatic Chronograph Day-Date gets its name from its TAG Heuer Calibre 1 automatic chronograph movement and it’s scratch resistant sapphire crystal Day-Date glace. This TAG Heuer watch comes with a polished steel case with a tachymeter scale on its black aluminum bezel and black dial design. Other options include a brown aluminum bezel and brown dial or a polished steel bezel and silver dial. However, no matter what material or color combination chosen, anti-reflective sapphire crystal graces both sides of this luxury watch.
Measuring at 43 mm, the case of the TAG Heuer Carrera Automatic Chronograph Day-Date watch is also scratch resistant. The dial, black, silver or brown, has three unique timing features moving at once. At 6 o’clock an hour chronograph ticks away while the seconds chronograph moves at the 9 o’clock marker and the minute chronograph sits at the 12 o’clock marker. Each of the hour numerals are hand applied luminescent Arabic matching the hour and minute hands for improved legibility in the dark. A large date window also sits a t 3 o’clock marker.
The TAG Heuer Carrera Automatic Chronograph Day-Date watch is resistant to water for up to 100 meters and has a stunning bracelet made with 5 row alternate fine brushed and polished steel. Other options include a black or brown alligator strap.
The TAG Heuer Monaco Automatic watch and the TAG Heuer Monaco Sixty Nine watch may look the same to an untrained eye but they are quite different. In the past we have talked about the TAG Heuer Monaco Sixty Nine, today we are going to get a closer look at the TAG Heuer Monaco Automatic watch.
First, let’s take a look at the TAG Heuer Monaco Automatic watch dial which comes in blue, black (above), and mother-of-pearl. The hour, minute and second hands are not only polished but are also nickel plated for the black dial and for the blue dial the second hand is red. The dial is surrounded by a square steel case with differentiating finishes from fine-brushed to polished. Finishing off the dial on this TAG Heuer watch is the MONACO name and the TAG Heuer logo which appear at 12 o’clock and in white lacquer for the white and blue dial and black for the mother-of-pearl dial.
The case of the TAG Heuer Monaco Automatic watch features a screw in case back with sapphire crystal on both sides. The crown comes with a fluting technology to make adjustments on the TAG Heuer watch easy and ensure 50 meters of water resistance.
Finishing off the look of the watch is numerous choices of straps depending on the model chosen. These include a black or blue alligator strap or a black rubber strap with a folding buckle.
The TAG Heuer Aquaracer watch for women come in a stunning two-tone version that is absolutely gorgeous and full of high tech specifications.

Depending on which two-tone Aquaracer watch model you choose, you will have a difference in materials on the dial and bezel. The TAG Heuer watch above is the boldest and most luxurious of the four Women’s TAG Heuer Aquaracer models. This TAG Heuer watch had a mother-of-pearl dial with diamond indexes for hour markers. Right above the 6 o’clock diamond hour maker there is a “AQUARACER – 300 meters” inscription. Each of the hands on this TAG Heuer watch is luminescent for easier legibility that has been diamond-set and polished.
However, what makes this TAG Heuer watch stand out from the other women’s TAG Heuer Aquaracer watches is the unidirectional turning bezel. The bezel on this TAG Heuer watch is made of 18K solid gold and is set with 35 stunning Top Wesselton diamonds.
