Established in 1847 by Louis-Francois Cartier, Cartier originated as a simple jewellery workshop based in 29, Rue Montorgueil, Paris. The hard work of its founder, his son Alfred Cartier, and eventually, his grandson Jacques-Theodule Cartier, the brand grew into one of the most prestigious watch making institutions of the world.
Ballon Bleu de Cartier was launched in 2007 as a culmination of the brand’s mastery as a jewellery maker, with its refined aesthetics and skilled finesse. Watches from this line are easily distinguishable owing to their distinctive frame and components, alluring the pickiest of watch aficionados.
The Ballon Bleu the Cartier model number W6920046 for ladies, features a 36 mm case moulded out of steel into the double round shape unique to the collection, with a thickness of 12.05 mm. The first round houses the dial, with a second bubble at 3 o’clock encasing the crown. Made of steel, the crown sports intricate fluting across its diameter, and is imbedded with a blue sapphire cabochon. Silvered and lacquered, the opaline dial is guilloche worked with a sunray effect that displays the true artistic mastery of Cartier. Roman numerals mark out the hours in black, with an interior track for smaller divisions of time. The steel bracelet sports alternately brushed and polished links for a multi-layered visual experience.
The Cartier calibre 076 powered mechanical movement ofthe watch, has automatic winding for immaculate timekeeping. Three sword shaped hands, crafted from blued steel, provide the hour, minute and second functions. Sapphire crystal glass shielding on the face protects it from scratches and renders it water resistant to a depth of 30 m.
Cartier has a legacy of being the choice of royals. As was once said by King Edward VII of England, Cartier is the “the King of Jewellers and the Jeweller to Kings,” as is shown by the fact that royalty like Princess Diana, Kate Middleton and Princess Caroline of Monaco chose to sport watches from the brand.
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.
