Ballon Bleu de Cartier collection adds new pink dial offering

9 January 2024

By Tricia Oliviera

The Ballon Bleu de Cartier watch from Cartier was first introduced in 2007. It has become iconic, epitomising Cartier's unique vision and its four creative focuses: the purity of the line, the precision of the proportions, the precious details, and the accuracy of the shape.

The Ballon Bleu watch is instantly recognisable with a circle inside a circle design. It has a monobloc construction, where the horns and crown cap blend into the middle case to form the appropriate case shape. Its apparent simplicity discloses a complex combination of intermingling circular and spherical forms and different volumes.

The precious details are a result of the watchmaker's stylistic intuition, where aesthetics and technical expertise are explored together. The watch’s winding crown at three o’clock is one of its most recognisable features, with its blue cabochon integrated under a protective metal hoop.

The accuracy of the shape is above all its exploration, an extensive search that culminates in a new vision of roundness. The case of Ballon Bleu is domed on both the front and back. Cartier pays homage to the great tradition of watchmaking and brings a new twist to its codes by transforming the “rail-track”, introducing the blue bubble, and adding the optical illusion of the domed sapphire crystal.

Now, the Ballon Bleu de Cartier watch in 33mm sees a new pink dial. The dial features a sunray effect and will be available in steel and paved steel version.
