Question about Tag Heuer Link Quartz WJ1110.BA0570 Wrist Watch
Posted by Anonymous on
Hi. I just received the Tag Heuer Indy 500 with steel bracelet today for christmas from my wife. I'm a smaller man and had to take out 3 links. I'd never sell this watch so if you would like them...just write.

First if the Tag watch is older then it cannot be repaired by Tag and Tag won't have any parts for it.
If it is new, Tag should have the parts and a watchmaker or Tag themselves could repair your band. Although I would suggest a watchmaker over Tag if you can find one willing to deal with Tag for the parts. Expect this to take months to get the right link parts.
If it is older then we have repaired some of these with laser welding. Although there is no guarantee as to how long the welds will last, it does seem to work out for a while.
The ones we have done have lasted several years. In fact we just had a customer send his watch back in for a battery and we had welded his Tag clasp back together about 3+ years ago and it is still working just fine.
Hope this helps,

I would have a jewelry professional do this due to the value of the watch. The Carrera pins, however are merely set with tension. It will take a pin pusher or similar thin rod of steel and a hammer. Tapping the pin in the watch will make it come out the other end. Pretty easy really, with the right tools.

Hello! I just went through the same thing. If you got the watch new, you can look in the box to find "mini" or "half" links included with the watch. There is no fine adjustment on the Link, but you can replace the larger links with the "mini" links to get the size closer. They are not quite half size, more like 65% of a regular link. So if you add one "mini" link and the watch is too big, you can then replace a regular link with a "mini" link to keep adjusting the size. I went to a dealer (Jared does this, as does Torneau...you talked to the wrong person) and it took about 5 minutes and was $15.
Hope this helps.
