As expected from Cartier, the built construction of this contemporary wrist accessory is superb. Its barrel shaped case, as well as the three-rows link bracelet that are made of premium grade stainless steel and 18kt Yellow Gold are crafted with such precision craftsmanship, resulting a flawless details that is both beautiful and comfortable to wear for years to come.

Based on its size, this Cartier W62027Z1 Roadster is considerably a large size. Its streamlined tonneau case that features an 18K Yellow Gold fixed bezel measures around 42.8 mm × 47.6 mm and approximately 12.2 mm thick, meanwhile, its two-tone steel gold link bracelet that comes equipped with hidden folding clasp is about 20 mm wide. It has a solid caseback, and at the right hand side, its finely sculpted crown that accompanied by the polished two pushers offers both aesthetic and ease of use to be appreciated.

Inside, this timepiece is fitted with Cartier Calibre 8510, a Swiss made automatic self winding 37 jewels movement that offers a smooth three hands, an automatic date, and stop-watch functions (chronograph). These functionality are neatly displayed by the watch’s attractive two-tone Silver dial that features luminous hands and black Roman numerals hour markers, magnified date display at the 3 o’clock position, and three oval shaped sub-dials for the small seconds (3), 30 minutes counter (9), and 12 hours counter (6).

Speaking a bit about the movement, Cartier caliber 8510 is a good chronograph automatic movement that is personalized by the watchmaker based on the ETA 2894 --which is basically a chrono module slapped on top of a 2892. This self-winding mechanical movement contains 37 jewels, beats at 28,800 alterations per hour, and provides around 42 hours of power reserve. The 8510 is non Chronometer, but, its accuracy good enough, rated on par with the finely tuned Valjoux 7750.

Anyway, as for pricing, the original manufacturer suggested retail price of this men’s Cartier Roadster W62027Z1 chronograph automatic steel gold watch is $12,925.00.
