This year TAG Heuer takes the Tag Heuer LINK Calibre 18 replica watch in a new direction. By rethinking every contour of the Link case we have launched the supremely elegant Calibre 18 Chronograph. Everything about its fine-brushed and polished steel case is subtly, different, especially its ideal 40mm size and slimmer thickness. The cushion-shaped fixed bezel, also in fine-brushed and polished steel, gives the dial a more open look. Link Calibre 18 Chronograph. A delight for the eyes—and against your skin.

The newest chronograph version of the iconic collection will be this Link Calibre 18 replica watch - a new Link with a new movement for TAG Heuer. The Swiss brand revamped the Link collection with an updated case and bracelet back in 2011. Since that release we aren't aware of too many new Link models until now with the Calibre 18. So what is new? TAG Heuer adds to the three register Link Calibre 16 chronograph with this two register model. The Calibre 18 automatic movement is a base Sellita SW300 (ETA 2892 analog) with a chronograph module produced by Dubois-Depraz.

The Calibre 18 is very similar to the Calibre 12 movements (found in Monaco collection pieces for example). Unlike the larger Link Calibre 16 watches (with base 7750 movements) that are 43mm wide, the Calibre 18 replica watches are 40mm wide, and considered slim at 14.4mm thick. That isn't slim per se, but "slimmer" for a chronograph replica watch. These new mid-sized Link models feature fresh dials and fit into the popular bi-compax (two register) chronograph look that many brands are gravitating toward.

The dial is composed of three elements- an outer-ring featuring deep vertical streaks, a Starburst inner- dial and then two dished sub-dials that seem to float over the top of the inner dial.

TAG Heuer will offer the Link Calibre 18 in both a black dialed (ref. CAT2110) model and a silvered dialed (ref. CAT2111) version. In a big way you can see these mid-range two register chronographs as being more affordable versions of TAG Heuer's ultimate two register chronograph movement, the Calibre 36, which you can find in some high-end Carrera models and is essentially a Zenith El Primero high-beat chronograph.
