Cartier Ballon Bleu Watch

RepliKate the looks of Kate Middleton for Less - About The Item

Kate wears Cartier’s Ballon Bleu watch. “The Ballon Bleu is one of Cartier’s more iconic models,” says Cartier Senior Category Director of Fine Jewelry & Watches, Michael Groffenberger. “Since its release in the mid 2000s, it has become a significant portion of the company’s annual sales. At one point I heard it estimated that if you removed Ballon Bleu from Cartier, it would be the fourth largest watch brand in the world.”

The watch was introduced in 2007 and combines the technical craft of watchmaking with a fine jewelry sensibility. The Ballon Bleu’s name captures its unique design features perfectly. “The Ballon Bleu is unique in its case shape,” says Groffenberger, “which is reminiscent of a pebble.” Rounded on both the top and the bottom, it is both comfortable and very elegant. “Somehow the femininity is not overpowering, however,” says Groffenberger, “and the piece can have a very masculine edge in its larger chronograph version.” The Ballon Bleu’s other unique feature is the elegantly integrated crown guard which slopes over the sapphire cabochon crown.
