Two more watches that are new for Baselworld 2010 are the TAG Heuer Link Advanced GMT and the Lady F1.
I’ve never been a big fan of the Link series- OK, its more elegant than some of the more overtly sporting TAG Heuer watches, but it’s never been one to set the heart racing.
This GMT version however is quite clever. The watch has a magnetic bezel system, and as you rotate the bezel the disc with the city names also rotates.
The watch uses the Calibre 7 movement (ETA 2893) and features a hidden button at 10 o’clock to re-set the GMT.
The second new watch is the Lady F1 series, which uses ceramics for the first time. TAG Heuer were keen to point out that the entire bezel of the Lady F1 is ceramic, whereas apparently some of the other “ceramic” watches in the market just have a thin layer of ceramic paint applied to a normal bezel.
There wasn’t a Men’s F1 ceramic at Basel- in fact, the only new F1 that I saw was a Khaki coloured F1 (dark Khaki/ Green dial with light Khaki/ brown rubber strap).
A few photos of the Link Advanced GMT and Lady F1 below- apologies that these photos aren’t the best.
