    The Link - S/EL Club

    Back to automatic ... Ditching those batteries
    I love this watch. Especially the black ridged face, long hands and thinner bezel
    A real masterpiece of design

    Re: The Link - S/EL Club

    I hope this is the correct place to post this question.

    I've been a fan of Tag Heuer for a long time and finally decided to buy a used Link, my watch is a WT 1112-0. What's the difference between the Link that has the word "Link", as mine does, on the watch face and the Link that has "Professional" on the watch face? Many times the model numbers are identical so I was hoping someone could explain this to me please?

    Nothing. The watch is named after the strap which is on its 3rd version I think

    Ahhh....Thank you, but they both have the same band on most watches that I've seen.

    Only link watches have the link band

    Thank you for your response colonelpurple, but I'm still a bit confused as both watches have the same watch bands.

    Let me do this with pictures.....the 2 pictures below are of a "Link" watch. The code for the watch marks them both as a "Link" watch yet one has the word "Professional" on it while the other has the word "Link" on it.



    This watch is a WT1112. It has a slightly different watch face and the word "Professional" on it.

    This watch is a WT1112. This is my watch and it has the word "Link" on it. They both have the same watch bands, BA0550, so I'm just asking if anybody knows the difference between the two watches?

    I think it's a timing thing.

    The earlier watches used the coloured logo and "professional" tag that was also used in the earlier S/EL series.

    I believe that "professional" was also only used on the Quartz watches with the Automatics labelled as such. (Happy to be corrected if I am wrong about this.)

    They then moved to the single colour logo, (which was already prevalent across a lot of new Tag Heuer models at this time), and "LINK" nomenclature.

    It's likely that the earliest LINK watches just used left-over S/EL dials and movements with a newer case and band and was not unusual in this era for Tag Heuer to update selected model features as existing part stock ran out without changing model numbers.

    (Roman numerals didn't appear on a lot of S/EL's and weren't popular sellers though so maybe they had a few of these in stock and needed to get rid of them?)
