6000 series calatrava is probably the only Patek I would put this strap on, but it does work well.

I think this 6006 needs a different strap than shiny black. Itís really a sporty watch and I think this strap is an upgrade. It frames the watch much better. Iíve added this piece to my short list!

I agree. This watch is the one dress Patek that can get away and be improved by sporty aftermarket upgrades like this strap I bought. Also considering one of those woven carbon. Fiber straps or nylon/Kevlar black straps similar to what goes on the Blancpain Fifty Fathoms (look it up youíll see what I mean and how well it would work with a 6000 series Patek).

Only issue Iíve run into is not many aftermarket straps are available in the 21mm range, they usually are either 20 or 22mm.

Love racing straps. Looks great, OP, well done! If you don't mind me asking, where did you source the strap?
