Cheap Patek Philippe Replica quintessential dress watch has become the archetype of slimline, elegant gold timepieces and for good reason. And yet for 2023 the prestige-soaked maison has opted to mix up the formula with a trio of new, sporty Patek Philippe Calatravas with the ref. 6007G.
Named after the Calatrava cross, the knightly symbol that you can these days see on Patek Philippe crowns and movements, it quickly became the foundation on which the brand’s ascendency was built. This first Patek Philippe Calatrava Replica was streamlined and elegant, with the kind of less-is-more sensibilities that guarantee a certain timelessness.
With a 31mm case size that was just 9mm thick, a snap-on back and flat polished bezel, the Calatrava Ref. 96 was streamlined to the point of minimalism. This might have been the early days of wristwatches, but they still had ergonomics in mind, with a tapered fit to the wrist.
The new trio of Patek Philippe Replica Watches For Sale basically form the precious metal version of that steel limited edition, with the same central dial pattern. But where the original opted for monochrome blue, colour is the name of the game here. They are quite possibly the sportiest pieces ever introduced to the collection.
The three models are exactly the same but defined by their bright highlights. The 6007G-001 uses sun yellow, the -010 a go-faster red and the -011 a gorgeous sky blue that’s thankfully not too close to Tiffany. That colour is echoed across the seconds hand, the triangular hour markers on the innermost ring of the dial and the funky, offset minute markers on the outer ring.
Otherwise, you’re looking at a 40mm white gold case, on the large side for a Newest Top Quality Patek Philippe Replica but within classical tolerances. Inside each is the calibre 26-330 S C, a newer generation movement, gorgeously finished and with a 35-hour power reserve. It has a date, something I’m sure many of us could do without on a dial like this, but otherwise a typically superb in-maison movement.
Patek Philippe have used colour in the past, but mainly for more exotic pieces and limited editions, but not core collection Patek Philippe Replica with 80% Discount. Between the use of colour, the carbon-adjacent guilloche and the distinctive dial with its various concentric circles, the new Ref. 6007G models are a world away from the original Ref. 96 that came to define Patek Philippe’s watchmaking.
The Ref. 96 was aimed squarely at the mainstream and the Patek Philippe Calatrava 6007G is trying to tackle a younger demographic of watch buyer, to tempt in the potential collectors that will commit atrocities for a Nautilus, but skim over the Patek Philippe Replica Watches For Discount collection as too old fashioned.
Is that a bad thing? There are likely some traditionalists out there that think so, but I’m not one of them. It’s probably tempting for a brand with the name recognition of Patek to rely on their own archetypes rather than try something new.
