    ok, now that's a rare watch and I think one of the better/more interesting ones.
    I've never actually seen one of these in the metal and never quite figured out how the GMT/World City worked in relation to the bezel.

    Of all of the Link models, I think that would be the one for me.

    Hi – thanks for your comments. The watch is indeed rare and am yet to see another one in the wild in the last 2yrs of ownership – even my purchase of it was a spur of the moment decision as I must say I never was very into Tag Heuer watches.

    The watch has a magnetic bezel (apparently TH were awarded a patent for this if I am not mistaken) – the mechanism is reasonably simple: the outer bezel is magnetically coupled to the inner GMT ring so rotating the bezel also rotates the GMT ring; this allows the user to “choose” a desired time zone by aligning the index at 6 o’clock with a corresponding city name. The second time is read using the GMT hand and the bezel 24 hr scale. There is also a button on the case side (flush with the case) that allows the user to set the desired reference time zone (i.e. the zone in sync with the bezel 24 hour scale when its 0hr position is aligned with the dial 12 o’clock position – or an alternative arrangement if one so desires).

    The watch seems really well built, is super comfy and the crystal is very clear; two things I would improve would be a smaller case design (I think this would feel better if a bit smaller – 40mm would seem a better option than the current 42) and potentially going for the brushed bezel design as the polished surface is a bit of a nightmare to read with all the reflections. And yes, I would not apply outer crystal coating and would try to make provision for bracelet micro adjustment (however one can not lay any particular blame on TH for these two features as outer AR coating and lack of micro adjustment have for some obscure reason become the norm for most watchmakers). Hope this clarifies things at least a bit…

    Re: The Link - S/EL Club

    Yesterday, I joined the club, today I joined the forum, life is good!
    I picked this up at a local Bric a Brak / Antique shop yesterday for NOK 2500 (approximately 420 USD). Its a CT1151.BD0052, it wasn't working in the shop, but a visit to the TAD in town and the replacement of the battery got it back in operation. Feels so good on the wrist and I love the look of it as a dress watch. There are no dents and dings in the case, bezel, or bracelet, it shows signs of wear such as brush marks on the finish, but other than that it is in perfect order.

Does anyone know when these were produced? Thanks in advance!
