    New member who enjoys reading the threads here. I am looking for my next TH and really like the older Link Calibre 6. Based on the catologues, looks like it ran from 2006-11. Black brown and white/silver are common, but occasionally I see a blue one (see photo) as a model wjf211f. My concern is that I don’t ever see the blue face listed in the catalog. I want to buy a blue one (used of course) but have concerns on why this color is not listed.

    Was it be released in another market like Japan? Should I have authenticity concerns?

    Thanks

    Thank you. Two different examples shown. One has been polished the other has not and has a sticker attached (hence the bubbles).

    The complete reference number for this timepiece is WJF211F.BA0570 and I do see a listing on Tourneau for a pre-owned one. The same blue dial that you are looking for.

    Cheers.

    Good point, thanks. I am not as familiar with the different watch selling sites. I know Chrono24, is Tourneau a very trustworthy one?

    Tourneau is an authorized retailer for TH and a host of other Swiss brands here in the US. You may as well please check the website for their range. They sell pre-owned watches as well.

    Cheers.

    So I contacted TH customer service, they verified that this color was sold in the US despite its absence in the catalogues. Thank you SNK for the advice. I purchased the watch. Take a look.
