Traditionally, wearing an envy-worthy timepiece has been reserved for the male community. Worn on the wrist of businessmen around the world, this wardrobe accessory knocks out its smartphone adversary at every meeting in which the question is asked, “Do you have the time?” But ladies, it’s your turn to chime in. The Link Diamond Dial with Roman Numeral Bezel (29mm) by TAG Heuer is the timepiece de resistance when it comes to what should adorn the wrist of a woman—whether she is wearing business heels or golf cleats.
Since 1860, TAG Heuer has been known for revolutionizing the watchmaking industry. Providing a luxurious lifestyle accessory at a slightly less-than-Rolex price tag, the Swiss-made watch manufacturer gears its product toward a younger set of individuals. But don’t be fooled by the watchmaker’s mantra of affordable lux- ury with the Link. We’ve chosen to showcase an exquisite piece that leans toward the pricey end of the TAG Heuer line.
Clocking in at $22,550, the Link is polished 18-carat rose gold and dazzles with 11 diamonds—totaling 0.08 carats—on the dial. The faceted hour and min- ute hands have white luminescent markers, and the date is displayed at the six. There are 12 engraved Ro- man numerals on the bezel, which sits in a gleaming river stone-shaped case made from scratch-resistant sapphire crystal.
Now that we’ve whetted your appetite with the look of the watch—diamonds and a deep violet-hued face—we’re sure you’re sold. However, if you want to make certain your timepiece is more than eye-can- dy, let’s talk genuine Swiss quartz movement. The battery-operated timepiece is controlled by a quartz crystal that creates precise time accuracy—give or take a few seconds each month. There’s no need to worry about missing a meeting with clients or a tee- time for that matter. If sailing is more your speed, you’ll be happy to know that the Link is also water resistant to 100 meters. Your watch is safe even with a splash of saltwater here or there.
