Hands-On Patek Philippe Calatrava Ref. 6006G

Postby Racer-X » May 11th 2017, 5:19pm

by Su Jia Xian (SJX) "One of Patek Philippe‘s latest releases at Baselworld 2016, but little noticed (the retro perpetual ref. 5320G got most of the attention), is the Calatrava ref. 6006G.

It’s the third generation of an unusual series of watches that are easily one of the most distinctive contemporary Calatrava models, characterised by a functional, vaguely military look blended with elements of Bauhaus."

Normally, PPs make my peepee swell. But not this one.

Let me think, what in terms of design do I dislike about this watch? The dial, the silly hands, the location of the subdial, the design of the minute track... Hell, I don't think I like a single thing about it. Maybe the case, but that's that. Their design department got stuck in the 1990s.

For that matter, I don't like its manufacturer either- they're bid-rigging wankers, that's one thing. The fact that they can charge 18 000 bucks (not joking here) for servicing a simple time-only watch, is another- and it has me pretty much convinced, that whoever set their service prices, is out of his mind.

Yeah, well, you know, that's just, like, your opinion, man.
