Ballon Bleu de Cartier
‘A watch constantly seeking harmony with a circle inside a circle’ This is the way Cartier describes their, Ballon Bleu de Cartier watch in short. As with most Cartier watches the design is very import and with that design, Cartier creates timepieces that are totally different than any other watch brand. A cool example of such design is the slightly domed sapphire crystal. You may not notice it at first but the crystal is cut inwards creating a Ballon like shape when you envision a continuous line with the watch its crown guards – Genius!
Inside that rounded, Ballon like shaped crownguard is an 18K yellow gold fluted crown set with a cabochon-shaped spinel. The beautiful and silvered guilloché opaline dial is printed with Roman numerals which are a perfect match to the blued-steel, sword-shaped hands. The steel bracelet features centrally positioned 18K yellow gold links and encloses your wrist with a hidden clasp, this feature only strengthens the high jewelry type atmosphere, which is often associated with Cartier, even more. This Ballon Bleu de Cartier watch adds a dash of elegance to male and female wrists alike – The convex curves of the case, the guilloché dial, those blue, sword-shaped hands and the polished links of the bracelet ensure that the Ballon Bleu watch will give you that wonderful sense of luxury and a dose of sheer refinement.
