Founded by Louis-Francois Cartier in 1847, Cartier heralds horological excellence and artistic refinery when it comes to timepieces. Over the years, Cartier has maintained its position as a leading watchmaker, so much so that even royalty acknowledges its magnificence. Evolving with time, the brand was responsible for the creation of the first wristwatch, the Santos, and many other such iconic models that left a mark in the memories of all watch aficionados.
The Ballon Bleu de Cartier collection is aptly named for the exquisite shape of the case and the blue sapphire studded crown. Launched in 2007, the line serves as a reminder of Cartier’s exemplary watchmaking expertise.
The Ballon Bleu de Cartier model number W6900551 is distinguished by its 42mm case, crafted from 18K yellow gold. Its blue cabochon inlaid crown has fluted workmanship, and is housed within a notch in the case. The lacquered and silvered dial is opaline white, with intricate guilloche embellishments. Each hour is marked by bold Roman numerals that enhance the traditional appeal of the watch, with the 3 o’clock marker being replaced by a circular date window. An inner track indicates smaller time denominations. The perfect round of the markers is distorted inwards at 3 o’clock to accommodate the crown. Made of durable blued steel, the hands of the watch are perfectly aligned to the markers. Sapphire crystal shields the dial and protects it from scratches. Its alligator skin strap sports a double adjusting folding buckle constructed of 18K yellow gold for easy and secure fastening.
The Cartier Calibre 049 on which the Ballon Bleu de Cartier W6900551 operates allows it a mechanical automatic winding movement for immaculate timekeeping. A calender aperture at 3 o’clock allows the watch to perform date functions, in addition to hours, minutes and seconds. 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.
