As the largest model within the collection, the Cartier Ballon Bleu 44mm is designed to catch the eye. With a case measuring 44 mm and with a thickness of 14.8mm, this stunning example of Cartier’s commitment to haute horology showcases a potent masculinity. However, despite the Ballon Bleu 44mm’s substantial size, the graceful curves and fine detailing that compose this exceptional timepiece lend it an air of breezy charm and weightless elegance that appeals to the most refined sophisticates the world over.
The Ballon Bleu collection traces its roots back to 2007, however, despite this relatively recent ancestry it has quickly found its place among the most popular watches currently on the market. The Cartier Ballon Bleu 44mm continues to build on the Maison’s esteemed reputation of fine watchmaking with a timepiece of contemporary character but classical motif. This is further underpinned by Cartier’s excellence in exquisite jewelry manufacture, a unique aspect of watch design that sets the Ballon Bleu de Cartier 44mm above other high-end watches.
Each Ballon Bleu de Cartier 44mm brings its own individual character to the collection. Crafted from the finest materials, metals, and precious stones, the Ballon Bleu is iconic and alluring in equal measure. The convex curves of the casing form a tactile, pebble-like balloon from which this watch derives its name. In addition to this, the fluted crown, set with an arresting synthetic spinel cabochon, brings a dash of azure blue to this magnificent timepiece.
For a slightly more restrained aesthetic, Cartier Ballon Bleu 44mm is manufactured in steel and can be paired with either a matching steel bracelet or luxurious leather strap. For a more extravagant look, the Ballon Bleu comes in either pink, white or yellow gold. Again, these may be paired with a matching bracelet or leather strap to finish. Naturally, in all of the Ballon Blue’s guises, Cartier’s award-winning movements are securely seated to ensure the beating mechanical heart of the watch is just as well regarded as its beautifully crafted casing.
The silvered guilloché dial, Roman numerals, and sword-shaped hands of the Cartier Ballon Bleu 44mm deliver a classical aesthetic that is perennially fashionable. However, by combining traditional craftsmanship with the latest technological advances, Cartier has created a watch of truly contemporary appeal. Designed and assembled to the strictest standards within the Cartier manufacture, each Ballon Bleu 44mm is the epitome of class, style, and engineering.
