Cartier W6920055 46mm Ballon Bleu de Cartier XL Extra-Flat Manual for men

As expected from the Paris based jeweler and watchmaker, this luxury wrist accessory is built with the finest materials, quality components, and skillfully executed with such remarkable precision craftsmanship, resulting a flawless beauty that lasts for decades.

Being one of Cartier’s Ballon Bleu, of course, all the signature design elements of its series can be easily found within this handsome timepiece; the convex curves of its case, silver guilloché dial, sword-shaped blued-steel hands, as well as the Blue sapphire decorated crown. However, unlike most of its "smaller" variants, this particular XL model has an extra flat profile --which favorably, doesn’t affecting its comfort. Furthermore, the watch does noticeably slimmer, too.

Cartier W6920055 watch’s polished round case that is made of solid 18K White Gold 750 and features a unique crown protector that projecting slightly from the case, has a diameter of 46mm and surprisingly slim at 7.05 mm thick only. Meanwhile its genuine Black alligator strap that comes equipped with an adjustable deployant buckle in 18kt white gold measures around 22 mm wide.

Typical to Ballon Bleu, the face of this men’s Cartier Extra Large watch is covered with a domed scratch resistant sapphire crystal that is enhanced with an anti-reflective coating, while within the arc at its right hand side, lays a circular crown in White Gold that is set with a blue sapphire cabochon. The only “difference” is that instead of slightly domed, its caseback --which unfortunately a solid type, is extra-flat.


The ones fitted inside this XL premium wrist watch, Calibre 430 MC, is Cartier’s “in-house” movement that is developed based on the Piaget 430P. It is a nice Swiss manual winding movement that is fairly slim, accurate, and rugged. Just like its base caliber, this reliable Cartier Calibre 430 MC beats at the frequency of 21,600 alterations per hour. This manual wind mechanical movement contains 18 jewels, and it provides around 40 hours of power reserve under full wind.

This elegant Cartier W6920055’s another attractive part is of course, its Silver guilloché dial that is both classic and modern at once, clean looking, and has a nice degree of read-ability thanks to the spacey layout design. This dial features sword-shaped Blued steel hands, painted Black minute markers around the inner rim, and painted Black Roman numeral hour markers with a “distorted” III that follow the case’s distinct design. And speaking of practical, the timepiece’s whole construction boasts a capacity of 30 meters water resistance so that it wont be harmed by slight wetness, nor fog through time and use.

Anyway, for all of its quality offerings, this gent’s 18K White Gold on Black leather Silver dial Ballon Bleu de Cartier luxury mechanical watch is reasonably priced with an original manufacturer suggested retail price of $25,300.00.
