Ballon Bleu de Cartier: Old-world elegance and unparaleled sophistication
Floating like a balloon and blue like the cabochon it encloses. At the heart of the Ballon Bleu de Cartier is the rotating crown with a blue sapphire cabochon, which is enclosed by a notch in the case. This design trick is all the more refined as the dial is shaped to fit perfectly around the crown and gives it room to unfold in all its glory. The Ballon Bleu de Cartier is thus further proof of Cartier's quest for perfect proportions and harmony in design. Other expressive features of these watches are the blue hands, which stand out perfectly on the background, and the fine guilloché decoration in the center of the flinqué dial, which is itself surrounded by a circular case made of stainless steel or 18k rose or yellow gold.
The perfect staging of external and internal values
The Ballon Bleu de Cartier is stylish inside and out as it also features first-class calibers, such as the caliber 1847 with its automatic winding. These watches show off the beauty of their inner mechanisms through the sapphire crystal on the back. And, whether you choose a classic three-hand model or one which shows the moon phase, each version of the Ballon Bleu de Cartier is a symbol of elegance, savoir-faire and the unique style of this world-renowned fashion house.
