Even the newest icons look to the traditions of the past to create greatness. Designed in 2007, with a new era of design in mind, the Bellon Bleu relies on one of the oldest watchmaking traditions: an oxidation process that perfectly and precisely colours watch hands when done down to the exact second. Using the lessons of the past, the Ballon Bleu has written its own story with a H-link bracelet, interchangeable folding buckle, and an ornate hand-polished dial featuring a press-stamped flinqué motif.
The Ballon Bleu is an iconic timepiece, bringing a new vision of roundness, softness, and volume to Cartier. Even the back of the watch’s case is a signifier of the originality of this piece, with a convex design adding more comfort for the wearer. An ode to the harmony and beauty of curves, the watch’s winding crown with blue bubble is a standout piece, not to be forgotten in a hurry.
