The new piece is a basic three-hander plus date – still in the wheelhouse for perfect fake Patek Philippe Calatrava models – but the dial design and some details have strayed so far from the “typical” Calatrava that it was bound to cause quite a stir. This is an easily understandable reaction once you consider what Swiss replica Patek Philippe itself says regarding the Calatrava line.
I’ve taken the description for the collection directly from the website, and it is as follows.
“The Calatrava Collection – Legendary purity. With its pure lines, the 1:1 fake Patek Philippe Calatrava is recognized as the very essence of the round wristwatch and one of the finest symbols of the top copy Patek Philippe style. Supremely elegant, it charms each new generation of watch lovers by its timeless understated perfection.”
Now take another look at aaa quality replica Patek Philippe Reference 6007A and ask yourself if it is the essence of understated perfection. Go ahead, I’ll wait.
I’m sure you’ll see that it is anything but understated, and I don’t know if anyone might argue that it is timeless in this iteration. Of course, that is probably why I like it so much.
Swiss copy Patek Philippe Reference 6007A takes similar design cues from the somewhat recent 5212 Calatrava Weekly Calendar and the slightly older Reference 6000 and 5296 models for different aspects of the dial.
Most specifically, it features an hour chapter ring with triangular markers on the fives and a railroad track for the single digits that was found on Reference 6000, only now with the colors reversed and matching this dial.
Outside of this ring is a second set of hour markers, again similar to Reference 6000 but now instead of pad printed, the Arabic numerals are applied and white gold, filled with Super-LumiNova, a definite change for the typical “dress” Patek Philippe Calatrava fake for sale.
Finally, on the outside edge of the dial is a chapter ring bearing numerals and hash marks to indicate minutes and seconds, something taken from Reference 5296, only this time no hash marks for the beats of the balance are on exhibition.
The center of the dial also features an embossed damier checkerboard pattern, which Swiss movement fake Patek Philippe labels a “carbon”-style texture. Anyone familiar with guilloche knows exactly what that is. But surprisingly this isn’t actual guilloche, even if the handcrafted form has been featured on other Calatrava dials in the past, so it is another shift away from the standards of the collection.
I may be wrong, but I honestly wonder if that isn’t what top super clone Patek Philippe did with the Calatrava Reference 6007A: intentionally make people squirm so they understand that the brand is very aware that tradition isn’t always the answer and sometimes we need to shake things up.
It could be a sign that the powers that be within Patek Philippe replica online might not be so mesmerized by the tradition of the brand and are ready to not take it quite as seriously. Or maybe all the loyal Patek Philippe collectors are correct and the brand just made a very un-Calatrava Calatrava reference.
