    Hi funkey
    Thank you for your post. Yes that's how i understand the chrono should function.
    Unfortunately nothing will get the 1/10 sec indicator hand moving. My local watch repair specialist thinks it is a problem with the 'A' button and im tempted to agree as sometimes it takes 3 or 4 pushes of 'A' to start or stop the chrono.
    The watch repair guy is going to take a closer look and then supply me with a quote to put it right.
    Will update when i have more news and i will be sure to add photsos when its all sorted out.

    Just heard from the workshop. It needs a new movement! Oh well at least when i get it back it will be in perfect mechanical condition (repair guy said 'like it left the factory').

    Re: The Link - S/EL Club

    I have a few questions for the pros out there. First, an AD told me that Tag prices would be going up significantly on April 1, 2013. Can anyone confirm this is true and not a pressure tactic?

    Second, I am looking for a CAT2012.BA0952. I had an AD tell me it was discontinued, the 800 number for Tag told me it was discontinued, but a person at the Orlando Tag Outlet Store told me it was a European release only. If that is the case, shouldn't an AD know this and be able to special order it? Also, why would it not be available world wide?

    Lastly, I see this watch is available on the Grey market. I would prefer to buy from an AD, but the issue for me is availability. I know there are mixed reviews on Grey market vs AD. Is it worth it worth the risk if I cannot get it from an AD?

    Prices go up about twice per year. It wouldn't surprise me if April 1st there would be higher prices.

    That watch differs from the US market in that it has Roman numerals. Certain watches are aimed at certain markets. The Monaco Gulf Cal 12 is a watch that was Europe only, I believe. It's not unusual for brands to do this.

    Nobody can answer if the grey market risk is worth it. Only after the two years can you say for sure. If its problem free, you win.

    Hello jss1973,


    I have this watch and I live in NY. I also had to hunt around to get it. The AD's I contacted could not get it for me. They all contacted Tag Heuer and always came back with the same response it is not for our market just for the Europe and Asia. What always bugged me about this was the watch is displayed on the US version of the Tag Heuer website.


    I contacted the Tag Heuer Boutique in New Jersey and they were able to take a factory order for me. They also advised that it will be a "boutique exclusive" and AD's in the US will not be able to order it. If I were you I would try contacting a boutique directly. I believe they will take an order over the phone or Internet if one is not conveniently located to you.


    Good luck for in your quest to find this rare piece.


    Here is some photos of mine.

    WOW - that is gorgeous! It looks so much better than the pic on their website. I will try the boutique, however, I did contact the outlet store in Orlando and they also told me that it was European exclusive. Thanks so much for your response.

    Re: The Link - S/EL Club

    Hello all, I am new to this forum. After 25 years of waiting I have finally gotten a TagHeuer watch. It was a gift from my wife and parents for completing graduate school. Ever since I was a kid I would see the Heuer signs at racing events. When I got older I loved the look of the watches and wanted one. I never could afford one. I was toying with getting the Carrera Chronograph but decided on the Link Chrono with the white dial. I have had black watches before and always had trouble reading them on low light situations.
