30 Dec Cartier Balloon Blue : Floats like a Balloon on Your Wrist
As one of the finest jeweller and watchmaker, Societe Cartier harnesses the combined power of strong temperament, aesthetics and precision in its timepieces. This classy and elegant Cartier Balloon Blue W6920071 timepiece can be worn from casual to formal attires. Recently spotted on Duchess Kate Middleton wrist, as a sentimental gift from her husband, Cartier Balloon Blue is a must have for those fans of ultra-thin watches.
Cartier Balloon Blue Ultra Thin Design Floats like a Balloon on Your Wrist
The Cartier Balloon Blue was released as an automatic movement that consists of Caliber 049, fitted with 21 jewels and has a power reserve of 38 hours. This magnificent timepiece is not only fitted with 33mm stainless steel round casing but also at a thickness of 9.96mm! This means the watch is light on its users wrist when worn all day long. The push-pull sapphire cabochon winding mechanism is protected by an arc sapphire metal.
The black bold size Roman numerals are a wonderful sight for those Roman fans and this makes the watch, easy to read, even in bright sunlight. Accompanying these numerals is the hour and minute hands which consist of blue-steel-sword-shaped design which runs above the quality silver guilloche face dial. With its polished or satin-finish link bracelet, Cartier ensures that its quality is sturdy and well-made to meet its client’s satisfaction.
Unlike any other thin watches, Cartier made the Balloon Bleu case broad and flat, which in this case, is pretty good. Not only does it make the timepiece ultra-thin but it strikes out as a classy watch to be adorn by its owner and complimented by people who wish to have a feel of it. So as I say it again, this timepiece feels like a floating balloon when you wear it on your wrist for a whole day.
The hidden deployment clasp is made from polished stainless steel silver. One of the most notable features of this watch is its crown, decorated with a synthetic spinel cabochon, which is protected by a steel arc. The sapphire color is such an amazing sight to me that I believe it will definitely spark one’s interest to
purchase it for a loved one too.
This watch has only 30m water resistant, possess a convex curve casing and a guilloche dial that speaks of high quality from Cartier. While this timepiece is said to be unisex, in my opinion, it looks more feminine due to its curves and lack of chronograph functions. In short, Cartier Balloon Blue gives its owner a sense of an elegance and classy look when adorning it on their wrist.
