The Patek Philippe Calatrava Replica line of time-only watches has often been unfortunately relegated to live in the shadow cast by the brand’s more complicated pieces like their perpetual calendars or their instantly recognizable sport watch models in the Nautilus and Aquanaut. Honestly, it’s understandable since demure 3-hand time only watches have been a cornerstone of the line, but every now and then there are standouts that do something a little different.
Aesthetically similar to the outgoing 6000 series, the major change in the 6006 is the much-needed size update to 39mm from 37mm. I think even those people who prefer a more classic sized watch would agree that 39mm is a good compromise for a contemporary dress watch. Besides, if you’re not a fan of 39mm Cheap Patek Philippe Replica, I’m sure you can find an old 6000 out there.
Moving further inward is the minutes scale, which is white with a circular guilloché pattern. This same design extends to the seconds subdial which shares the ring pattern of the minutes scale. You can also see the circular guilloché pattern extending out from the center of the seconds subdial. This all results in a richly textured and vibrant dial that would otherwise fall flat considering the two-tone color scheme here.
You’ll notice the off-centered seconds subdial between 4 and 5 o’clock and this was one of the primary identifying features of the Patek Philippe Calatrava Ref. 5000 Fake Watches Online, which was the watch that preceded the now-outgoing Ref. 6000. First introduced in 1991, the Ref. 5000 utilized the 240 PS movement, which was characterized by this off-center seconds sub-dial.
As I mentioned, the case is 39mm wide and a slim 8.84mm thick and with 22mm wide lugs Swiss Patek Philippe Replica, it has a good, substantial wrist presence. The case is done in 18k white gold, which has always been one of my least preferred materials. When I want gold, I prefer yellow or rose gold. Otherwise, it’s Platinum when considering pieces that look more subdued but are obvious to anyone with a somewhat trained eye to spot as being that pinnacle precious metal. White gold just leaves me uninspired, but that’s a personal preference.
