“A jeweller unlike any other,” Cartier was established in 1847 by Louis-Francois Cartier, as a continuation of the work done by his master Adolphe Picarde. From a humble workshop at 29, Rue Montorgueil, Paris, the brand soon grew to an internationally renowned label, with patronage from eminent personalities such as Princess Mathilde, Napoleon III’s first cousin, and the acclaimed couturier C. F. Worth. Cartier’s artistic mastery and technological prowess sees a culmination in the Ballon Bleu collection. Launched in 2007, watches from this line imitate delicate, floating balloons- rising up from the wrists of their wearers in an elegant and enviable fashion, with a dash of blue adding to their intrigue.
The Ballon Bleu de Cartier model number WE902026 for women, has a 28mm case crafted of stainless steel with a thickness of merely 9.35 mm. Unique and distinguishable, the case has a double rounded shape, an attribute of the collection it belongs to. The primary case houses both the dial and a secondary circle for holding the crown. With intricate fluting across its diameter, the crown is crafted of 18K pink gold and inlaid with a blue synthetic spinel cabochon, which imparts to the collection its name. A distortion in the pink mother of pearl dial accommodates the crown, while enhancing the layers of beauty the watch possesses. Hourly measures of time are marked by Cartier’s traditional Roman numerals in black, with an interior track for smaller denominations. Sapphire crystal glass casing on the dial protects it from scratches. The bracelet is two toned, with the centre links being made of 18K pink gold and the exterior, steel. It fastens to the wrist by a hidden folding clasp.
The Cartier calibre 057 powered quartz movement of the Ballon Bleu WE902026, ensures precise timekeeping. With two sword shaped blued steel hands, the watch provides the hour and minute functions. It is also 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.
