History
1847 saw the birth of one of the world’s premier jewellery and watchmaking brands- Cartier. Receiving patronage from the elite of Russian, Parisian and English society, and under the guidance of its founder Louis-Francois Cartier and his family, the brand grew from a humble jewellery workshop to what it is today. The Ballon Bleu collection evinces its mastery in crafting watches that are not only horogically accurate, but also ‘objets d'art’, with its distinctive make and concept. Watches from this collection are crafted to resemble light, floating balloons over the wrists of their wearers, with a meticulously worked crown to add an element of subdued glamour.

Design
The Ballon Bleu de Cartier model number W69010Z4 is a watch made for women, with a taste for the finer things in life. Fashioned entirely of stainless steel, the case has a diameter of 28 mm, which is shaped into an almost perfect round with a secondary aperture at 3 o’clock to house the inimitable crown. The detailing on the crown includes a fluted diameter and a top inlaid with a synthetic sapphire spinel. A distortion on the silvered opaline dial to accommodate the encased crown enhances the intrigue of the wristwatch. Cartier’s traditional black Roman numerals mark out the hours in an elegant manner, with an inner track for smaller divisions of time. The steel bracelet has a hidden folding clasp for secure fastening.

Features
The quartz movement of the watch operates on the Cartier calibre 057, for immaculate timekeeping. Two sword shaped hands crafted from blued steel point out the hour and minute. With scratch-proof sapphire crystal casing, the watch is water resistant to a depth of 30 m.

Interesting Facts
As King Edward VII of Britain once said, Cartier is the “the King of Jewellers and the Jeweller to Kings,” as is evinced by the string of royals such as Princess Diana and Princess Caroline of Monaco seen sporting watches belonging to this brand.

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.
