Welcome to the Ballon Bleu de Cartier, a contemporary assemblage in the universe of timepieces. Introduced only a few years ago, the collection has rapidly become a flagship with a domineering presence in the iconography of Cartier's luxury trademark brand.The Case
Dissecting the Ballon BleuThe Crown ,,,,, *** love, *** love Pendants,
The Ballon Bleu is more than just a round watch. It is rounded from the dial-side to the caseback, giving it the resemblance of a precious gem. This unique feature marks the collection above all others, the design distinguishing it from Cartier's other luxury watches.
The crown of the Ballon Bleu de Cartier is universal to all watches in this collection. A sapphire cabochon is encapsulated by the crown and is what gives the Ballon Bleu its name. The characteristic protective arch fuses the crown into the case.
The most stunning and impressive feature about the Ballon Bleu is that every model incorporates solid gold into the timepiece, and Cartier has never produced a stainless steel-only model. Available in three sizes, 42 mm, 36.5 mm and 28.5 mm, for both gentlemen and ladies, these timepieces boast accurate quartz movement as well as sophisticated self-winding automatic movements. With optional diamonds and a multitude of other options, these elegant timepieces are classic gems.The Dial
Cartier is one of the most exclusive and elite brands of timepieces available to buy on the market. Some of the company's best known designs include the Santos, the Tank, the Pasha, and one of the newest and best designs, the Cartier Ballon Bleu Replica Watch. The Cartier watch also has an extensive and illustrious history, with the company dating back to 1847.
Cartier's trademark Roman numerals and sword-shaped hands frame the guilloche dials of these watches. The crown's position and the winding mechanism shift the numerals softly, making them wander from their customary path just a little. Given the curvature of the crystal, a certain degree of distortion also occurs.
