This example model number WG1222-KO is in remarkable condition for a watch manufactured in 1993.All the usual areas that show wear look almost like new. Even the heavy gold plated links look practically new.Comes complete with the full compliment of adjustment links. For over 30 years now the S/el has been the softer looking of the mostly pure sport creations from Tag Heuer.Today they are simply known as the “Link”, paying homage to the S shaped bracelet component that is really the single most unique characteristic.An ultra reliable Swiss made quartz movement with calendar and second hand add some utility to the design.Threaded crown/case back, rotating timer bezel and locking buckle are features this dressy model retains alongside its pure sport siblings.It comes complete with everything as delivered from the factory except the setting instructions, but that’s what You Tube instructional videos are for.The Link models have always been positioned as the upscale Tag Heuer.
An anti glare treated sapphire crystal keeps the view of the black dial clear and legible.
The curved synthetic sapphire crystal is super scratch resistant and highly refractive when viewed off axis adding to the luxurious design. It was given as a retirement presentation gift but was never used.
Purchased in Toronto at BIRKS, it comes complete with all the original packaging, instructions, endorsed warranty card and a 2 year extended guarantee valid until June 2020. The white mother of pearl dial provides good contrast with the faceted tapered hands.
A traditional analogue display watch offers superior function and efficiency that a digital display doesn’t have a chance of matching.
The key to its advantage in functionality is displaying only the necessary information when called upon.
