Cartier Ronde Solo W6701005 Men’s Watch: Perfectly

0 Comment


Perfectly round flanked by perfectly straight, the Cartier Ronde Solo W6701005 men’s watch blends a classical look with some carefully understated modern design to create a straightforward timepiece with such boldness that it demands appreciation. It is a fairly simple watch that rejects ostentation but still draws notice. It’s this subtle but unmistakable contrast of the perfect and round face with the perfect and straight bracelet links that accomplish what this watch’s designers were aiming for.

The W6701005 is a large model with a steel case and a steel bracelet. The Ronde Solo’s circular grained crown is also steel, and it’s set with a blue synthetic spinal cabochon. It has a pale silvered opaline dial and a scratch resistant sapphire crystal dial window. Its sword shaped hands are of blued steel, adding a splash of color to the watch face. This men’s watch’s face includes a day of the month window along with Roman numerals and military-style 1 through 24 numbering. The movement mechanism is quartz Cartier caliber 115A. It is water resistant up to 100 feet. The case is 1.4 inches in diameter and a quarter inch thick.

The Cartier Ronde Solo W6701005 men’s watch retails for $2,625 at the Cartier website or a Cartier boutique. It carries a two year manufacturer’s warranty.
