Amid the low five figure echelons, the Cartier Ballon Bleu Black Dial Chronograph Men’s Watch W6920052 is undeniably a fair-priced find. While its black band is not an obvious eye-catcher and its unequivocally-round, stainless-steel bezel turns me off, an alligator strap is a nice touch of detail for the buyer who enjoys small things that make for distinction. Since the Cartier Ballon Bleu W6920052 is readily available on a plethora of websites, you can easily knock $1000 from the retail price if you are a smart shopper. Overall, if you are looking for a classy watch from a high quality brand family, I say go for it.

In the Cartier Ballon Bleu Black Dial Chronograph men’s watch, the signature Cartier Roman-numeral dial-face is an exquisite standout against a silver-faced backdrop. As always, Cartier also offers high quality materials, premier repair service, and high quality Swiss quartz movement.  While I would be more likely to spend $7000 less on a functional diving watch such as the Invicta Men’s 6555 Subaqua Noma IV for my sea-faring hubby or less than four figures on a Gucci Men’s YA126222 G-Timeless Brown Chronograph G Dial for my European styling brother, I support you in this purchase if you or a male giftee prefers the old money air of unassuming, high quality from an elite brand family.  If you are already a Cartier devotee and a sucker for 18K gold, with a bit more cash to spare, you can find a surpassingly distinctive Cartier Calibre De Cartier Automatic W7100007 Men’s Watch online for only $5000 more than this Cartier Ballon Bleu. If any brand can smatter gold atop its watches sans an air of uncouth, in-your-face gaudiness, it’s Cartier. With the Calibre De Cartier Automatic W7100007, they do it well. All in all, you have many high-end options among which the Cartier Ballon Bleu Black Dial Chronograph Men’s Watch is a respectable mid-range choice for the high-end, traditional, classy, dresser.

Ultimately, this is a fair-priced purchase leading to a buying decision that comes down to personal taste. If you like the looks of this watch and you have the money to spend, go ahead and buy it. The materials are top notch, the price is fair, and the Cartier brand is classy and reliable. While I would not purchase it as a matter of personal taste, I urge you to follow your heart on this one. If you are a classy, stylish, unassuming man (or love one enough to spend five figures), this Cartier Ballon Bleu Black Dial Chronograph could be the perfect purchase for you!
