Cartier was established in 1847 by Louis-Francois Cartier as a simple jewellery workshop. Under his guidance and that of his sons, Alfred and Maison Cartier, the brand soon grew to unprecedented levels. Responsible for iconic lines of watches such as the Tank, the Santos, the Ronde and the Ballon Bleu, Cartier is regarded as the maestro of appealing aesthetics and superior technology. The Ballon Bleu was launched in 2007 as a culmination of the artistic skill of the brand. Designed to resemble light, floating balloons, watches from this collection are simplistic yet alluring for male as well as female watch enthusiasts.
The Ballon Bleu de Cartier model number W69007Z3 for women is themed silver and gold for a traditionally classy appearance. Made of steel, the 28mm case is moulded into the unique pebble shape, with an outer circle encasing the dial and a secondary aperture for the crown. The frame has a minimal thickness of 9.35mm for comfortable wearing with a minimalistic aura. Its crown is crafted of 18K yellow gold with an intricately fluted body imbedded by Cartier’s trademark blue synthetic spinel. Silvered and opaline, the clear dial sports the traditional bold Roman numerals in black for hourly intervals of time, with a distortion at 3 o’clock to house the crown. Smaller intervals of time are indicated by an inner track. Sapphire crystal glass encases the dial to make it scratch resistant. The two toned bracelet is made of alternating links of steel and 18K yellow gold, and attaches to the wrist by a hidden folding clasp.
The Cartier calibre 057 quartz movement of the Ballon Bleu W69007Z3 ensures immaculate timekeeping functionality. Two sword shaped blued steel hands move in perfect tandem with the markers to provide hour and minute functions. The watch is water resistant to a depth of 30m.
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.
