TAG Heuer Link Chronograph Calibre 16 Automatic watch is one of TAG Heuer's most famous replica watches, known to be a sporty and elegant timepiece, that looks great in casual as well as in formal settings. The movement Calibre 16 features a date complication, a self-winding mechanism and a chronograph, which is the most significant part of the watch. This watch is definitely a looker and stands out as one of TAG Heuer's most recognizable and desirable watches. Let me share my impressions.

You could say, that the Link Calibre 16 is a stopwatch added to a normal replica watch. Because of that, it's about 50% more expensive than the Day-Date I've bought, but it lacks the Day of the week complication. Although design-wise I like the Link Chronograph as much as the Day-Date, but then I was thinking: Do I really want to pay over 3000 Euro for the chronograph complication, which I will rarely use? At this point my answer was no. If I wanted a chronograph, I'd rather choose a model from Link's Carrera or Aquaracer series, but like I said: At this point I don't need it. Sure, when buying this kind of expensive watch, it's not really about need, it's about wanting. I didn't want it, the dial looked less practical to me, the readability of the time was much better on the Day-Date and besides, I love that Day of the week design at 12 o'clock, it always captivates me how beautifully it was done. The Chronograph on the other hand doesn't look too different than various chronographs of other exquisite brands, so I guess in this way I would like to stand out from the crowd. If I judged both watches by photos, I would definitely choose the Link Chronograph, but once you try both watches on and see them from close up, the Day-Date gains in appeal, while the Chronograph loses it's magic a little. Please don't try to tell me otherwise, this is my opinion, I tried both watches on at two dealers and always came to the same conclusion. Nevertheless, this is "criticism" on a very very high level and if you're a replica watch lover, you know what I mean. In no way I am saying that the TAG Heuer Link Chronograph is a bad watch - to the contrary. It's an awesome timepiece, but I just had to make the choice and decide which one is more suitable for me.
