    Time to call it: Blue is the new anthracite!

    Looks nice clean and simple, TAG Heuer has had a real void in quality dress options for a while now, I sort of thought the Link was meant to fill that to some degree but the lug and case design of the Carrera lends itself very well to dress pieces.

    Looks very sharp, left the TAG brand for along time due to large and over busy dials. Ones like this could swing me to a new one to the collection.

    To be honest, I prefer it to the gold dress watch.

    I would say that the Link, as a dress watch, is a very 90s thing. I look back at the other "modern" dress watches of the period like the Longines Conquest, Omega Constellations, Ebel Wave watches where the integrated look was the trend.

    The name of the progenitor says it all really: Sports/Elegance.

    Somewhere along the line, more "traditional" dress watches came back in and yes, it was something that was missing with the exception being the Carrera case.
    With that said, the Link case looks great on leather. It has nice slender/pointy lugs that goes perfectly with a strap but not many people do it.

    Heuer/ TAG Heuer haven't really done the classical dress watch- thin, time-only watch, maybe Gold..leather strap....oh, hang on..

    While I am still pondering on the perfect dress watch, this Carrera is the closest.
    Yet again think of a vintage Camaro or gold Monza with a black suit, now that will look sharp!

    It looks - in my opinion - much nicer and classier with the leather strap.

    Resist the temptation, I must.

    As was said in an advertisement for a car
    I don't like: "Reduce to the max". In this case it works very well.

    Nice; the other models in the new line should start appearing any day now.
