    Tag Heuer Link Calibre S CJF7110 - Authentic?

    Hi Folks,

    My first post here so forgive me if I screw it up, especially with embedding images.


    I recently purchased this watch pre-owned. This make/model I had been in the market for for some time. I got a good price but I bought it without papers, taking somewhat of a leap of faith. It came with the original Tag box though. The dealer is a bricks and mortar high street dealer in Madrid with an online presence. Been in business a few decades and gets the green light when rating his website.


    This will be my 8th Tag and I am happy that it has an authentic look and feel to it just like my previous ones but they all had papers and were guaranteed authentic. Luminosity is strong and lasts hours. Logo/Print on face is clean and crisp.


    I've had several automatics and while I absolutely love the technology, I always struggled with losing or gaining time where accuracy was never guaranteed. This is the best of both worlds being electro-mechanical and not your typical run of the mill chrono with perfect accuracy.

    Anyway, can you please look at the attached pics and let me know if you see anything that might suggest it's not authentic. I brushed out the serial#. Just looking for a few extra sets of eyes to be thrown over it. Thanks.

    Best to take it to an AD and get it authenticated. Colors look off to me, but could be the photo.

    Thanks. I don't have an AD close by and I don't fancy sending it away but I do intend to bring it to one next time I get there. I figured there's a wealth of expertise and knowledge on this forum to give some confirmation in the meantime.

    Colors - it must be the lighting in my office because in person the blacks are definitely solid black, as are the whites, s/steel and other colors. No different to my authentic Link CT1111.

    Might want to post this on the Tag sub forum here; there is a thread for this. Just a quick Google search shows that this is a watch that is frequently faked.

    I would be surprised if there are fakes of an electro-mechanical movement.

    Agree.
    Fakes don't usually go to the trouble of faking a hidden movement.

    I don't know that movement and I don't know that model to consider the dial, hands, etc.
    But I have owned many Link series models and have one in front of me now.
    The bracelet and the back of the watch look authentic or a very good copy.

    I doubt a fake would have all these details right:
    - The 3114 and Y on the connection to end link is correct.
    - The slot for accessing the spring pin looks like exactly the right size and placement, just a tiny bit of brushed surface before it curves away.
    - Those tiny holes on the back of each link look right
    - The clasp looks right in every way, the screw in the side, the thickness (quite unique to the Link series), spacing, etc.

    If I ran across this for sale I would risk buying it without hesitation based on what I know.
    But I'm just some guy on the internet. So you have to decide if I'm right or not.
    I think to know more I would have to look at a number of T.H. fakes. I've never actually seen a fake in person to know if they could be this good.

    Well thanks for the reassurance guys, that's a relief! I am extremely happy with the watch and the condition is mint. Looks like it has not received much wear.

    I have the same watch, this looks ok to me. You can also check the watch function: chronograph, setting time and date, because this electro-mechanical quite different normal quartz.

    No red flags on this one.
    I have yet to come across a Calibre S replica.
