History
The Ballon Bleu line of watches from Cartier is a culmination of the 150 year old brand’s expertise in watch making. Launched in 2007, the collection offers pieces that are intricately crafted to reflect Cartier’s legacy. With distinctive features that set them apart from others, watches from this line are the envy of all beholders.

Design
A distinguishing feature of the Ballon Bleu de Cartier model number W6900651 is its perfectly circular 42mm case, made of 18K pink gold. The style of the case makes it appear as a delicate balloon floating above the wrist, and this unique aspect of the watch, coupled with the blue sapphire cabochon inlaid fluted crown, gives the collection its name. Its lacquered dial is opaline white and guilloche worked. Bold black Roman numerals mark the hours, with an interior rail-track denoting smaller divisions of time. The track is distorted at 3 o’clock to incorporate the crown within the case. Its three hands are sword shaped and made of blued steel, and are perfectly aligned to the markers. The ensemble is shielded by sapphire crystal glass, which renders it scratch resistant. Its alligator skin strap fastens to the wrist by means of a double adjustable folding buckle made of 18K pink gold.

Features
The Ballon Bleu de Cartier W6900651 possesses mechanical movement with automatic winding, operating on the Cartier calibre 049, allowing it to maintain precise time. The oval calendar aperture located at the 3 o’clock position displays the current date. Water resistant to a depth of 30m, the watch manages to offer an inimitable blend of artistic glamour and technical mastery and appeals to meticulous watch enthusiasts.

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.
