History
The “King of Jewellers and the Jeweller to Kings,” Cartier, was established in 1847 by Louis-Fracois Cartier as a humble yet promising jewellery workshop. Receiving royal patronage from English, Parisian, and Russian societies, the brand soon blossomed into one of the premier watchmaking institutions of the world. The Ballon Bleu collection was launched in 2007 as evidence of the brand’s superior artistic expertise.

Design
The Ballon Bleu de Cartier model number W6920095 is made for men with a taste for the finer things in life. Ballon Bleu’s distinctive feature, the pebble shaped dial, is crafted of steel with a diameter of 42mm and 13mm thickness. The silvered opaline dial is guilloche worked, with time intervals being marked by Cartier’s traditional Roman numerals in gold. An interior rail-track marks out the minute divisions for a greater degree of accuracy. Sword-shaped blued steel hands trace out the time precisely. The crown is made of 18K pink gold, with intricate fluting across its diameter, and embedded with the synthetic blue cabochon unique to Cartier. A bracelet consisting of alternating linkages of steel and 18K pink gold make the watch an alluring entity that can be attached securely to the wrist by means of a hidden folding clasp.

Features
Cartier’s calibre 049 powers the self-winding mechanical movement of the watch, making it an immaculate time keeper for the horology enthusiasts. Sapphire crystal glass shielding on the dial renders it scratch resistant, while allowing clear and distinct visibility. A date aperture located at 3 o’clock adds to the functions provided by this watch, which is also water resistant to a depth of 30m.

Interesting Facts
The Ballon Bleu collection succeeded in entrancing royalty directly, as is evinced by the fact that Kate Middleton chose to sport a watch from this collection on her 2014 trip to Australia. Other royal wearers include Princess Caroline of Monaco and Princess Diana.

Essence
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.


Design
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.


Associations
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.

The stylish Cartier Ballon Bleu is a show stopper! I love the use of rose gold on the dial. Its unique crown design is what is the main attraction.
