Ballon Bleu de Cartier

Ballon Bleu de Cartier

The Cartier Ballon Bleu is one of those luxury watches that, despite its glaring detour from the ‘formula’, has become one of the most well-known Cartier watches around the world. It is relatively young, without a dramatic history that can be narrated to wide eyed watch admirers. It is unisex, and has the amazing ability to completely change form when it switches wrists. And, it belongs to a brand that is commonly associated with fashion – no heavy weight horological story in those genes. And yet, this elegant, modern, curvy, young looking watch, regardless of its perky name, is a watch to reckon with.


The Ballon Bleu is aesthetically beautiful and has the added charm of that dramatically placed sapphire crystal under a magnifying lens. The rest of the watch is surprisingly straightforward – bold Roman numerals, sword-shaped hands, a slightly curved case and a polished bracelet. Simple and strong. This watch drives home the point that luxury is not just about a splattering of diamonds, but about creating a delicate balance of refinement, style and science. Whether it is wrapped around the wrist of a bold and stylish woman or worn by a man who is confident in himself, this timeless piece can be classy and alternative at the same time. Its appeal transcends not just gender, but age and very often, occasion. As such, the watch has been translated into different moods by Cartier. You could experiment with some diamonds, a different color of the dial, strap material, and even wear a watch with a moon phase or a flying tourbillon.
