Question about Tag Heuer Link Automatic Chronometer WJF5112.BA0570 Wrist Watch

1 Answer

I recently received a Tag Heuer Link Calbre 5 Automatic watch as a gift. However, it needs 1-2 links removed. I took it to a local jeweler and they said it can't be sized because it they weren't ablwe to locate the pins on the links that needed to be removed. Normally, most watches have visible pins on the links of the watch. How can I remove the links necessary on my watch for sizing? Thank you - Mark

Here is how its done. First remove one end of the clasp (this is much easier on the adjustment side - just depress the pin and remove). Now you can separate the two halves of the first link (actually this is a half-link). Simply grab each half and pull. You may have to do some twisting - do it carefully so that you don't bend the pin. You may have to do some prying - if so, you can use a thin piece of plastic so you don't scratch the link and only pry along the pin so that you don't bend it. Once removed, you can now remove the first full link. Remove it in the same way. Now replace the end half-link and re-attach the clasp. Removing a link from the other side is a little more difficult. The clasp lock is held on with a long pin (slot on one end and screw on the other. One must be held in place while you turn the other. You may need another pair of hands to help you.
If you feel uncomfortable about any of the above, take it to a jeweler - a Tag AD is not necessary but probably best although any jeweler can remove a link if they understand how they are put together. Tell them the link is composed of a right and left half that snap together and they should then see and understand what they need to do.

Best regards. Jewel
If you have extra links from being shortened, that may be of use too. Try a local jeweler for that repair.

The second hand runs extreamly fast


Either the watch is faulty, in which case you need to return it to the store which you bought it, Tag Heuer are very good at fixing their watches. If you bought it elsewhere, check that it is genuine, before sending it anywhere, because if not a genuine Tag Heuer, you may not get it back. I'm guessing its a Quartz model, which are difficult to repair but simple and cheap to replace, which is what they will do (Tag/Jewellers) if its an Automatic model, then it will be repaired quite quickly, as very simple to do. Any problems, luxury sauce dot com, contact me via there.

Second hand on my watch now goes in 5 second intervals


Check the instruction manual if you have one. Tag-Heuer watches move in 5 second intervals to let you know the battery needs replacing. A neat feature. Now you know that you have a real Tag!
