With a solid gold bezel and a chronometer movement, this full size Link watch has the quality that some earlier TAG Heuer models lacked.  Model reference WT5150.


The Link range was launched in 1999, replacing the S/EL model, with the WT5150 model as the top of the range three handed watches.  It is shown in the brochures and price lists until 2001, and it commanded a whopping 80% premium over the steel only watch.  But the papers on this watch are completed for 2016, four years after the whole Link range was updated.  So did this watch sit in the stores for 16 years before being sold as New Old Stock?  Possibly, but we will never know for sure.  But it would have been made circa 1999 and sold in 2016.


TAG Heuer bi metal watches do have a reputation for wear on the bezel and bracelet, but that was the older models.  They used 10 micron gold plating, which didn’t always last, whereas this model has a solid gold bezel and gold capped bracelet links so this should never be an issue with this watch.  The price of course did shoot upwards with the use of gold, and possibly this explains why it stayed in stock for so long – this was a TAG that cost more than an Omega Speedmaster.  The movement chosen is the ETA 2892-2, as used by Omega and Breitling among others too, and has a chronometer certificate issued to it which has a matching serial number.  The condition of this watch is really good, with the worst mark a scratch on the crystal.  The bracelet is quite long and our sister website, SpareLinks.com, may have extra links if required.
