Cartier W6920052 44mm Ballon Bleu de Cartier Chronograph Automatic for men

Just like any Cartier Ballon Bleu, this wrist flattering watch is suitable for either gents or ladies. Of course, as expected from such premium timepiece, its built quality, materials, and components are excellent. The watch details are remarkable, which typical to its series, has a lots of smooth curves which all flawlessly executed with such precision craftsmanship. And, its whole construction is designed to be watertight to 30 meters for practical sake.

Based on its size, this Cartier W6920052 Ballon Bleu chronograph would be an extra large for men, which means it would be an oversized one if worn by ladies. Its well crafted round case that is made of premium grade stainless steel has a diameter of 44mm --or you may say 47mm if "that arc" at three is included, and approximately 14.8mm thick. Meanwhile, its appealing Black bracelet that is made of genuine alligator leather and offers the convenient of an adjustable deployant clasp measures around 21.5mm wide.

Caseback.The watch’s slightly domed caseback is see-thru, featuring sapphire display that is held in place with a steel plate with engraved markers around that is secured with eight screws. On the other side, its face is covered with a domed scratch resistant sapphire crystal that features anti-reflective coating on both sides for an enhanced clarity. At the right hand side, lays a Blue synthetic spinel cabochon decorated circular grained steel crown that is protected by the Ballon Bleu’s signature arc, and alongside, there are two handy pushers with a rounded profile for the the timepiece’s chronograph functionality.

Unlike typical Cartier timepieces that have a symmetrical dial’s layout, this intriguing Ballon Bleu de Cartier W6920052 chronograph dial’s layout is notably asymmetrical. Yet, it does retain the design elements that are Cartier’s signature like guilloche sunburst finish decoration and sword-shaped hands.

TheBold in Slate Grey (some may say, Black), this luxury watch’s flinqué dial comes with Silver tone sword-shaped hands in rhodiumized metal, nine Roman numerals hour markers, 30 minute counter at 3 o’clock, small-seconds at 6 o’clock, and a convex aperture at 9 o’clock for the date window. This dial may has a less formal look than the typical Cartier such as Tank or Santos, but still, it looks great, and also offers a nice degree of read-ability. And, by having 30 m water resistance, you can be sure that it wont fog through time and use.

Speaking a bit about the movement, the Calibre 8101 MC is one of Cartier’s 8000 family movement that is developed in collaboration with Jaeger-LeCoultre. Compared to the JLC 750 based Cal. 8100 that is employed by the 42mm Pasha Chronograph, this self-winding mechanical Cartier Calibre 8101 MC is noticeably smaller and slimmer due to its less complications. This Swiss automatic chronograph movement contains 33 jewels, beats at 28,800 vph, and provides around 42 hours of power reserve. And regarding performance, despite of not being at the level of chronometer grade movement yet, its accuracy as well reliability is quite a satisfactory.

Anyway, for all of its quality offerings, this gent’s steinless steel on Black crocs leather Black dial Cartier Ballon Bleu W6920052 automatic chronograph watch is reasonably priced with an original manufacturer suggested retail price of $10,500.00.
