    Hi All,

    New member here - looks like I may need a spare link for this bracelet. I wondered if anyone knows of any available, preferably in the UK.

    Cheers,Matt

    Hi Matt
    Welcome to the forum, nice to see a fellow Link owner - not too many arounf here!
    I recently got one directly from TAG Heuer in Sheffield, but any branch should be able to order for you.

    I think I got mine free actually (I asked about it when I was buying a watch), but I would imagine £30 or something like that?

    Appreciate your response. Tag pointed me to the local authorised retailer, who then have to reach back out to Tag to source the part - so I’m just waiting to hear back on that now. Will go for the eBay item if not though. I was ideally hoping that someone in the UK might have some spare links knocking around, but that was a long shot especially with a rare model. Thanks, Matt

    Hi, cost was £30 from Tag so that was definitely the way forward. Appreciate your help. Cheers, Matt

    Surprisingly, Tag advised that the BA0550 bracelet is still produced/ is available to order. I think this was only found on the CT link series which was discontinued a long time ago I think.

    hey said they still PRODUCE it? Also, it's not just the CT series. It's all the LINK series from that era. The FIRST series of this new style of watch, shortly after the SEL. Then it starts thw CJ and WJ series, with flatter links.

    To clarify, they said the BA0550 links are still available to order. So either is still being produced, or more likely there are a stock of spares. Thanks for sharing your knowledge on the second point.

    Well the BA0550 is on a lot of different Link models so it makes sense.

    I got a couple of half links for my Link Cal. 36 (CT511B with the BA0564 bracelet - same links with a different clasp AFAIK) for £15 each through the TAG boutique in Brighton shortly after it opened (WoS themselves wouldn't get them for me - not couldn't, but wouldn't).

    Only needed one half link, but figured I might as well get a second at that price.

    you know, at that price, we really should be questioning how tag heuer can sell their watches for so much. Cause £15 is almost nothing. I would have asked for a dozen. Half links for that watch are so rare. They only come on the BA0564, because the clasp has no micro-adjustments.
