Cartier’s heritage of furnishing watches that are the pinnacle of artistic and technological excellence sees a culmination in the Ballon Bleu de Cartier. Launched in 2007, watches from this collection are characterized by their distinctive shapes and inlaid sapphires. Suitable for adorning both male and female wrists, these watches are created to meet the standards of the choosiest watch enthusiast.
The Ballon Bleu de Cartier model number W6900356 is a unisex watch that displays meticulous crafting for an exemplary aesthetic appeal. Its 36mm case, constructed of 18K yellow gold, is perfectly circular but for the distortion at 3 o’clock to accommodate the inimitable crown. The crown itself is set with a blue sapphire cabochon that gives the collection its name, with fluted working for an enhanced element of sophistication. Its white silvered opaline dial boasts intricate guilloche work that adds a layer of excruciating detail to the watch. Black Roman numerals mark the hours, with an interior track calibrating smaller time intervals. The marker track too has a distortion at 3 o’clock to make room for the encased crown, giving this watch a unique feel. With sword shaped hands made of blued steel, the watch maintains time with perfect harmony. The sapphire crystal protection of the dial protects it from mishaps and renders it scratch resistant. With an alligator skin strap, the wristwatch fastens by an 18K yellow gold ardillon buckle.
The mechanical automatic winding movement of the Ballon Bleu de Cartier W6900356 is powered by the Cartier calibre 076, which allows it to maintain the exact time. It is water resistant up to 30m for hassle free use. With its rare blend of mechanical superiority and aesthetic beauty, the watch pleases and intrigues all its beholders.
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.
