One of my dreams of the last couple of days? A 6007T for the next children charity auction... I honestly have no clue if this will happen, but it would be pretty amazing...;-)

Here's a thread a wrote a while ago on the allegedly only 12 (twelve!) Titanium Pateks ever produced in 181 years of history, all of course unique pieces:

Qualitatively I agree (in the sense that it's technically the same as the "old" reference 6000), but it's such a unicorn that it would be quite a dream to have... An incredibly special one is also the 3928T ;-)

One of the twelve (the 5033T) will be on the market again next month with Christie's. Even here, go figure how "funny" some auctions are presented: this entire (and quite amazing) private collection that will be on sale in a series of auctions is advertis...

Looks like I don’t have to worry about that other guy

The 6007 is more symmetrical, will be harder to get and sell from much higher % above retail. Not worried at all.

How is that different from other brands being manipulating in a similar manner?

That's a pretty bold statement, with direct support from FPJ. However, there is no doubt in my mind that they are stashing away pieces and manipulating the market.
