The ultimate sign that one has reached stardom is when a luxury item is named after her. In fact, some of the most famous and unbelievably iconic pieces in the fashion luxury business are actually named after famous people. There’s the famous Birkin bag named after singer/actress, Jane Birkin, as well as the Kelly purse named after legendary actress-turned-princess of Monaco, Grace Kelly. Beyond leather goods, the world of horology has also dipped its toes on superstar prowess, particularly Tag Heuer with their new, limited edition Bella Hadid Link Lady watch.

The young supermodel’s relationship with the renowned Swiss luxury watch manufacturer started in 2016 when she became one of their most famous ambassadresses. It wasn’t long before Tag Heuer honored the pop culture icon by releasing a namesake model on December 12, 2017. The Swiss company launched it at the same time they opened a new boutique in London’s famous Oxford-street, and the event was attended by the supermodel herself. Each watch costs $6,050 as there are only 500 pieces available in the world.

The Link Lady is regarded as Tag Heuer’s most feminine models out of all the watches in their iconic roster, hence its name. With just 32 mm in diameter, it’s relatively small (compared to other Tag Heuer models) and all black matte finish emphasize its sleekness and simplicity. The mother of pearl dial adds the luxurious touch while a crown of sparkling diamonds on the bezel finishes off a sophisticated look. Despite its femininity, however, the Swiss brand is known for their athletic approach to horology, which is emphasized here with its ceramic strap.
When compared to other timepieces from equally-prominent jewelry and haute horology brands, this limited-edition Link Lady model doesn’t stand out as much. In terms of face value, the watch doesn’t equal its supermodel namesake when it comes to outstanding beauty and unique presence. While the diamonds add a unique and elegant touch, it only goes so far. This Link Lady variation lacks sparkle, especially since Bella Hadid herself has a lot of it when on the runway, or rocking the red carpet, or simply setting trends on the street.
