Out of interest, what happened to ‘Smallluxuryworld’? He used to make excellent posts, and then just seemed to disappear?

Live report on the new reference 6007G

 By: Miranda : March 31st, 2023-14:26
The only picture with all four versions together The new reference 6007G is perhaps the most important release in the collection for many reasons. Its accessibility compared to the other new releases at lower price point and "younger looks" as Patek tries...  

thanks for the lovely photos

I too prefer the steel version over these new releases but unfortunately not lucky enough to own one.... The new release is a welcome one although I am not quite sure of the reason to go with 3 colors at the same time... but if I was to choose I would eas... 

yellow for me too

That strap would have to go, though.

haha yes

 By: keks : March 31st, 2023-17:54
horrendous but that is a nonissue!

Anyone else look at these and think...

 By: blau : March 31st, 2023-15:47
that Patek is pushing into a more contemporary sporty colorful design direction, but that they are not quite at home yet with those kinds of designs?

that is an excellent way of phrasing it.

 By: Peter : April 1st, 2023-06:56
some of their new designs, including certain rare handcraft, look extremely contrived. it is like an old noble gentlemen who wants to become a boxing champion. he will probably end up being the laughing stock of the audience.

I actually like these

 By: TeutonicCarFan : March 31st, 2023-17:13
They would be a great everyday watch. I think they missed the mark on water resistance. If these were at 50m I could see it being great to wear , weekend getaway, maybe hotel pool or by beach. 100m and it could replace the nautilus for me. The colors are ... 

I miss the 5000s, 6000G in both black and grey dial, and the black 6006G. That 6006G they kept too short.

 By: patrick_y : March 31st, 2023-17:22
But I'm not crazy about this latest one. But that's okay, I don't have to be crazy about everything. Thank you for this excellent post that combines a bit of history with it!

6006g for sure

 By: keks : March 31st, 2023-17:56
for some reason 6006 was never a reference that got attention, personally I found it very appealing and was looking forward to additional iterations of it.. a pity as it has so much potential to create varieties out of!

Most people never liked the 6000 nor the 6006...

 By: patrick_y : March 31st, 2023-18:01
All of the people in my family didn't like it and thought I was crazy for thinking of buying one. Over a decade ago I was going to acquire the 6000G, it had my requirements; date, micro rotor, and a deployment clasp and I liked the look. Apparently I was ... 


 By: keks : March 31st, 2023-18:44
I was a big fan of the black 6000G and still contemplate one every once in a while... perhaps one day I will stumble upon one

I hope so!

 By: patrick_y : March 31st, 2023-19:15
I liked both the black and the grey 6000G. Wouldn't mind having one on my wrist...

hope you will find one for you...!

 By: keks : April 8th, 2023-05:17
personally I was hoping the 6006 would see further iterations before taken off the shelf but seems Patek thought differently!

Thank you…

 By: Musashi83 : March 31st, 2023-18:55
very much, the photos and report are greatly appreciated. Your photos tells me I was right in contacting my AD about these watches. Again thanks for all of your hard work.

thanks this is a great report

 By: Francoamerican : April 1st, 2023-01:43

Thank you so much for your work and time, mon ami. I still damn the issues I had with my phone network which made me miss you. As for this watch, I could see it through the window display and...

 By: amanico : April 1st, 2023-06:26
In real, it is even more evident than on pictures... The Yellow makes me think of an Amvox One R, in platinum. Nice Calatramvox! Best, mon ami. Nicolas

Thanks Imran for sharing your knowledge and the history of the 6007 !

 By: GLau : April 1st, 2023-07:52
These brighter (bolder) colors demonstrate to me that Patek is serious in extending and modernizing the Calatrava line, post the success of 6007A LE. Bring out three colors/version concurrently was a pleasant surprise to me 😃

At almost $38,000 I would prefer a guilloche dial instead of stamped...

 By: mdg : April 1st, 2023-18:28
...but then I suppose it would be $58k instead : ) Oh, and match the date background to the dial...

thank you so much, what a nice write up

 By: Dauster : April 1st, 2023-23:49
thoroughly enjoyed it. Nice pics too. May I ask how did you get access to W&W if you traveled on your own dime ? I thoguth you need some kind of invitation / press tickets ?
