A legacy of refined aesthetics and technological prowess precedes Cartier in all lines due to its 160 years of continued excellence. Receiving royal patronage from Russia, France, and England, the brand had a reputation for making ‘objets d’art’. It diversified into the hitherto unexplored realm of watchmaking in 1888, with 1904 marking the year when the first Santos watch was made- a wristwatch decades ahead of its time.
The Ballon Bleu de Cartier, launched in 2007, draws inspiration from a light, airy balloon that makes its way carefree and jubilant through the lives of all beholders. Minimalistic yet glamorous, watches from this line are captivating for the casual observers, and must-haves for the watch aficionados.
Made for women, the Ballon Bleu de Cartier model number W69018Z4 has a case crafted from steel with a double 28 mm round shape- the outer, larger circle housing the second one at 3 o’clock to hold the crown. The distorted shape of the silvered opaline dial, in order to accommodate the crown, adds to the layers of allure of this watch. Hourly intervals are marked on the dial in black by Cartier’s classic Roman numerals, and an inner track provides smaller divisions of times for greater accuracy in reading time. The inimitable crown boasts intricate fluting around its diameter, and an imbedded blue sapphire cabochon enhances the appeal of the ensemble. The black alligator strap fastens to the wrist by a double adjustable folding steel buckle for a secure user experience.
Cartier’s calibre 057 quartz movement of the watch gives it immaculate timekeeping abilities, with sword shaped blued steel hands tracing out the time in hours and minutes. Sapphire crystal casing on the dial protects it from scratches and renders it water resistant to a depth of 30 m.
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.
