    Now that the Link Lady has been released, I thought it would be fun to see what the new Link design would look like in the Men's series.

    Who knows whether there will be a new Link men's series, but some of these look pretty good!

    Yeah, fortunately, the level of photoshop skills is quite agricultural ;)

    Tongue firmly in cheek. If I tried same, I suspect my results would be appalling.
    That Senna Ceramic gets my juices flowing.

    Indeed, I think David did a pretty good job with these.
    The Senna is my favorite too; distantly followed by the GMT.

    Does this mean we expect any new Link chronographs to continue using the Valjoux 7750? A little surprising since I thought the Link was positioned a bit higher - or is the 1887 reserved for use in the Carrera for the foreseeable future?

    Please consider the following as my very personal opinion: I love the link bracelet, I like the very clean look of the link dials, but... these look like somebody put a link and a Monza in a blender! It is clear that at TH they don't know exactly what to do with the link series, but if they need inspiration, they shouldn't look for it in other series... I would think about discontinuing the link watches and offering the link bracelets as a variant for Carreras and / or F1s...

    I agree with you. The Link series does nothing for me. They somehow just look wrong. Offering the bracelet as an alternative for those who like it is a good idea. I've never tried one on but I prefer the look of the GC/Carrera H-link bracelet.

    Actually for some reason reminds me more of Camaro than Monza in the case shape (not in the lugs).
