History
Cartier has been one of the oldest, most prestigious watch makers in the world, ever since its inception in 1874. With a reputation of being  the ‘Jeweller of kings and King of Jewellers’ before the advent of the modern wristwatch and a ‘Pioneer in the art of modern watch making’ after 1904, the market was taken by storm with the introduction of timeless classic pieces.

Incorporating a simple design with perfect proportions is this model that is revered by designers even today. The Tank has had countless number of variations added to its collection. One of which is the Tank Ballon Bleu de Cartier that is a reflection of the initial design aesthetic with a modern edge. Introduced in 2007, the collection is the youngest in the range and has become a favourite in recent years. It incorporates a distinguished futuristic edge to an otherwise classic design.

Design
Floating like a balloon is the ballon bleu de Cartier, model number W69017Z4, which ‘adds a dash of elegance to male and female wrists alike.’ Circular in shape, the silver guilloche opaline dial measures 36mm in diameter. Roman numerals guide the blued steel sward shaped hands. A crown set with a synthetic spinal cabochon adds to the elegance of the timepiece. A sapphire crystal protects the watch from scratches and adds extra durability.

An alligator strap is attached to the double adjustable folding steel buckle. The entire model is a manifestation of a timeless design that incorporates perfectly convex curves and a satin finish sleek look.

Features
With a water resistance of 30m, this timepiece can withstand light splashes of water. Not only does the watch look futuristic, but it also works like a piece from the future, with its mechanical movement and automatic winding caliber 076 MC which is unique to Cartier watches only.

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.
