VIDEO: CROWN At Home With Patek Philippe's Calatrava Ref. 6007AWritten by Alvin Wong
Another Patek Philippe collectible for the record books.
We are stoked to have the mighty Patek Philippe to help us kick off our 'CROWN At Home' series of watch-related videos.
Having been deprived of the chance to check out new releases in the flesh for many months, no thanks to the ongoing pandemic, Patek Philippe's offer to let us spend some quality time with the new Calatrava Ref. 6007A was too good to pass up.
The 1,000-piece limited edition, stainless steel watch was launched to commemorate the opening of Patek Philippe's new headquarters in Plan-les-Ouates (more details here). With Patek Philippe initially announcing that it isn't going to be releasing new watches this year because of you-know-what, the launch of the Calatrava Ref. 6007A came as a very, very pleasant surprise.
We were impressed with the watch just by looking at the pictures and hearing its backstory. After seeing it for real, we gotta say it only affirmed our feelings.
Alvin promises not to be a douche when talking about watches. He may have scoured the Basel and Geneva watch fairs for the past 15 years, and played an instrumental role to the growth of Singapore's pioneering horological and men's lifestyle publications, but the intrepid scribe seeks to learn something new with each story he writes.
