Ballon Bleu de Cartier: The New Dimension of Round


The watch industry has been known for its iconic watches. Icons give inspiration; they develop and change styles while enthusiasts will create conversation starters from them. Ballon Bleu de Cartier is one of the Swiss watch industries most creative collections. Even though the watch was conceived only in 2007, it has become a stable of Swiss watch design.

The blue bubble, the shape inside a shape. Few would have believed that the classic round case could be designed like this. Cartier designers gave volume to the circle to avoid breaking any lines. This doubly convex shape strikes the perfect balance to the line and volume of the case. This functional, well protected and easy to use crown brings peace of mind to the wearer.

The case consists of two rounded shapes on the bottom and on top. This roundness makes it very comfortable to hold in the hand or wear it on the wrist. The shape is harmoniously broken by the similarly shaped crown which is called the blue bubble. This integration inside the shape of the case lessens the chance of accidental pulling on the crown while being used daily.

Ballon Bleu de Cartier is available in multiple sizes, strap or bracelet options, different movements and case materials. Cartier has really created a new dimension of round and by this have cemented Ballon Bleu de Cartier into the book of icons.
