1847 was the year that Louis-Francois Cartier took over Adolphe Picard’s humble jewellery workshop and started the process of converting it into an internationally renowned brand, known for its exquisite jewellery and collectible watches. Cartier holds to its credit legendary masterpieces such as mystery clocks, carriage clocks, and incredibly fashionable wristwatches.
Ballon Bleu de Cartier was launched in 2007 as a witness to the brand’s infallible reputation in artistic refinery. With each watch from this line crafted to resemble delicate, floating balloons, a Ballon Bleu is the ideal choice for watch aficionados seeking a delight for the visual as well as horologic senses.
The Ballon Bleu de Cartier model number WE902026 for women, is an iconic piece crafted entirely of 18K rose gold. Its uniquely shaped 36 mm case features the double rounds typical to the collection, with the outer frame housing an internal aperture to encase the crown. With intricate fluting along its diameter, the crown is imbedded with a cabochon shaped blue synthetic spinel. The lacquered and silvered dial is meticulously worked into 12 zones with guilloche detailing, giving a distinctive sunray effect to the face. 11 brilliantly cut diamonds adorn the hour markers, with the twelfth hour being marked by Cartier’s traditional Roman numeral in black, giving an aura of muted elegance and glamour to the piece. The dial is protected by sapphire crystal glass that offers scratch resistivity. Its 18K pink gold bracelet fastens securely with a hidden folding clasp.
The Cartier calibre 057 powered quartz movement of the watch, ensures immaculate timekeeping functionality, with sword shaped blued steel hands moving in perfect tandem to the markers. The watch is water resistant to a depth of 30 m.
The unusual name of the Ballon Bleu de Cartier is due to its light, circular dial which is reminiscent of a balloon, and the blue sapphire adorning the side of every timepiece from this collection. With a streamlined and elegant design, the line offers watches that are suitable for both men and women. Sophisticated artistry and superior watchmaking skills displayed in every timepiece belonging to the Ballon Bleu collection makes it an extremely memorable experience for its patrons.
The primary attraction of the Ballon Bleu de Cartier lies in its simplistic yet contemporary crafting. The perfect circular shape of the case is gently succeeded by a second circle located behind the three o’clock position, which houses the sapphire cabochon set crown. The dial comes in the subdued tones of white and black, with select models extending the colour pallette. The centre of the dial is the guilloche worked in all Ballon Bleu watches, with some cases sporting a date window or additional subdials. The hands are sword shaped and available as hour, minute, and in some cases, seconds indicators. The fixed bezels of these timepieces are adorned with diamonds in certain models for an added element of glamour. Watches from this collection operate on mechanical or quartz movements, with precise timekeeping abilities. The satin brushed or polished straps of the entire collection makes for watches that are ideal ornaments for the quintessential watch fanatic.
As King Edward VII of the United Kingdom once said, Cartier is the “King of Jewelers and the Jeweler to Kings.” Today, Cartier in general and the Ballon Bleu de Cartier collection in particular is found to cater to the needs of the royals. Kate Middleton was seen sporting a Ballon Bleu watch on her 2014 Australia trip, reinforcing the strong ties Cartier has traditionaly shared with royalty.
