Eye See You

The Ballon Bleu de Cartier W6920046 men’s watch brings to mind an eye. Maybe it is a whale’s eye; or a child’s eye, as wide as possible with wonder and disbelief; or maybe it is the eye of some kind of a technician, enlarged through the lens of a thick, round monocle; or maybe it is just an eyeball. Whatever, the large round case, offset by a thinner band is striking and original without trying too hard.

The big round, highly polished stainless steel case of the Ballon Bleu de Cartier W6920046 men’s watch is further accentuated by a slightly protruding piece of steel protecting the crown. At a glance it looks almost as if the watch has a compass to guide the stylish wearer. Under the scratch resistant sapphire crystal window, the dial boasts Roman numeral hour markers and blued steel hands. Its crown is fluted, with a blue synthetic spinel cabochon. The bracelet is steel and the mechanical movement has Cartier caliber 076 automatic winding. The watch is also water resistant to 100 feet.

The Ballon Bleu de Cartier W6920046 men’s watch retails for $5,100 and is available on the Cariter website, Cartier boutique stores and authorized sellers. It can also be personalized with a complementary engraving.
