0 Comment

There are thousands of unisex watches out there and you can never tell if it is going to look good on your wrist. Why would something that may fit a woman look great on a man or vice versa? Now there is a company that really does make a unisex watch – one that seems to fit perfectly on anyone. That is the Cartier Ballon Bleu Silver Dial Watch model W6900456.

Those who wear the Cartier brand are considered to wear status symbols on their wrist. This is because the watch is made with high quality standards in mind. The Ballon Bleu is a dress watch made from 18k rose gold. Both the case and the fixed bezel were formed from this beautiful metal. In fact, you’ll know if you have a real Cartier because they will never use stainless steel in their watches. The case has an adjustment knob that is embedded into the body for comfort and a smooth, continuous flow of the face. The entire case measures 36.2mm in diameter and 11.9mm thick. This makes it a small watch for men or a large watch for women. With blue steel hands and Roman Numeral hour markers against a silver dial face, you should not have problems reading the time on this Cartier. For those of you who want to count down the minutes to leave that boring meeting, there are minute markers around the inner ring of the face. The W6900456 has Quartz movement, which is extremely accurate and always on time. All of this is sealed in place with a solid case back and a scratch-resistant sapphire crystal face. Ideally you won’t be dropping this watch with a retail cost of $14,300, but if you do Cartier made sure it’d be protected. The watch is brought together with a brown leather strap that closes with deployment clasp.  While the Ballon Bleu is water resistant up to 100 feet, the leather strap will not be and you may notice spotting if you emerge it.

Not everyone loves a unisex watch, but you can depend on Cartier to create on that looks either manly or feminine depending on the wearer. If this watch interests you, but isn’t quite the right one, check out Cartier’s Ballon Bleu in Yellow Gold W6900356 or their Pasha 18k Rose Gold WJ117736. There are probably cheaper watches that have the same minimal function that Cartier offers and will still look great on your wrist, but if you have the money and want the status symbol the Cartier Ballon Bleu Silver Dial W6900456 Unisex Watch is a solid option.
