The Link Lady collection has its own dazzling jewel: the Diamond Star, a vibrant tribute to femininity that captures the essence of this series of timepieces. With its Haute Couture influence, it is set outside of time and gravity, like on a divine catwalk show.
The automatic movement floats in space, the oscillating mass executes a skillfully choreographed ballet and the diamonds are like shooting stars flickering in the rich stellar skies of the Galaxy. The dial and the case back seem to dissolve, allowing the designer to revel in creating this celestial dance. Such elegant artistry is possible because the watch is fitted with an oscillating weight that is larger than the movement it graces.
The TAG Heuer R&D team had to work wonders to keep it functional without compromising the star design. It makes a 360° turn between two sapphire crystals which allow the eye to catch and hold each moment of eternity. A complex construction keeps the movement centred in the case and makes it appear as if it is floating. The cut of each sapphire layer within the construction is highly accurate and technical to ensure a perfect fit. The whole structure is completely transparent, a result obtained only through a delicate, dust-free assembly process. Clad entirely in 18K 5N rose gold and with 192 diamonds totalling 1.35 cts, the timepiece is stunning in its finery. A mechanical and aesthetic marvel, it is the star attraction, the brightest of constellations, the belle of the ball. Proudly, this top model paves the way for the prêt-à-porter models that follow behind.
