History
Often termed as the Avant Garde collection of Cartier, Ballon Bleu de Cartier attracts watch aficionados from across the world with its perfectionist functionality and jewelled designs. The collection has given birth to picturesque and vibrant blue hues adorning many of the features of the models. Its cabochon of the crown and the winding mechanism are both sapphire, and catch the eyes of men and women alike. The guilloche dial, the convex curves of the case and the sword-shaped hands help make the Ballon Bleu the single most sought after watch by all high profile watch lovers.

Design
The watch distinguishes itself as a classic Ballon Bleu watch with its fluted crown set with a blue synthetic spinel cabochon placed neatly on the case side. It carries a radiant silvered opaline dial with a scratch resistant sapphire crystal glass dome covering the watch. Roman numerals prove standard in every Ballon Blue de Cartier watch model and bring forth sophistication in an otherwise charmingly simple time piece. The dial displays serenely blue steel hands that are sword shaped. To perfectly pair with the stainless steel case, the bracelet is crafted from alligator skin with double adjustable folding steel buckle. One interesting aspect that sets this time piece apart from its brethren entirely is that the steel case orbits the crown at the 3 o’ clock position adding a distinctive design feature that distorts the path of the Roman numerals on the outer dial.

Features
The Ballon Bleu de Cartier model W69016Z4 strikes a dashing figure on the wrist with polished stainless steel case dimensioned at 42.1 mm diameter and 13 mm thickness. It houses the impressive Cartier Calibre 049 for which the collection is revered in the watch making industry, along with the deep blue automatic winding mechanism with mechanical movement. It has been tested to remain functional up till 30 meters/ 100 feet under water. This Ballon Bleu automaton presents many dimensions of time including hours, minutes and seconds within its dial. A legibly placed calendar aperture or date display shines at the 3 o’ clock position of the watch face, ensuring you are always abreast of time.

 

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.
