A maestro in fine watchmaking, Cartier, was established in 1847 by Louis-Francois Cartier, as a jewellery workshop taken over from his master, Adolphe Picard. From a lane in Paris to the wrists of kings and queens, watches from Cartier have evolved into a status symbol for all watch enthusiasts. The Ballon Bleu collection was launched in 2007 as a symbol of the brand’s inimitable style and aesthetic mastery, with its distinctive dial and crown.
The Ballon Bleu de Cartier model number W6920041 is ideal for ladies owing to its small case and alluring theme of pink and silver. With a 36mm diameter crafted of stainless steel, and a thickness of merely 12mm, the case is shaped into a perfect round with a secondary aperture at 3 o’clock to house the crown. The crown itself is made of steel with fluted working across its diameter, and boasts the blue cabochon-shaped synthetic sapphire unique to Cartier. A distortion in the pink dial is made to accommodate this crown, adding an element of intrigue to the watch. Hourly time intervals are marked with Cartier’s traditional Roman numerals in silver, with an inner rail-track marking minutes for easier time viewing. The sword shaped hands are made of blued steel and are perfectly aligned to the markers, to give accurate timekeeping. The bracelet incorporates alternately polished and brushed linkages, to provide multiple dimensions of aesthetic appeal.
Horology enthusiasts find much to admire in the working of this watch thanks to its Cartier calibre 076 powered mechanical movement with an automatic winding, which ensures exact reliability. Water resistant to a depth of 30 metres, the dial is protected by sapphire crystal glass that renders it scratch resistant.
King Edward VII of England once declared Cartier to be “King of Jewellers and the Jeweller to Kings,” and the brand lives up to this image even today. The 2014 Australian trip of English royalty, Kate Middleton, saw her wrist adorned by a Ballon Bleu watch from Cartier. Other blue-bloods like Princess Diana and Princess Caroline of Monaco were also reported to wear Cartier.
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.
