Presenting this ever popular gents Cartier steel Ballon Bleu watch with box and papers. Cartier classified this watch as gents but we have noticed huge demand for this sized watch amongst ladies. We wanted to point out a few of the design elements that make this watch so coveted. Firstly lets look at the classic blue sapphire cabochon crown used to set the time, and the distinctive pebble-shaped case which is so comfortable to wear due to its slightly rounded profile. The polished steel bracelet is also extremely attractive to look at but it is the design features of the dial itself that brings so much aesthetic beauty in our opinion; With its classic Cartier cream background, its Roman numeral hour markers and its bold sword-shaped hands it is packed with design brilliance. This particular Ballon Bleu is in lovely condition, save for a small mark on the crystal near the 2 position, it is hard to recognise without extreme magnification but if you zoom in on the high resolution picture of the dial (available in the description below) you might be able to see the mark. The watch ships with papers(dated 2011) and a one year warranty. We would love to arrange a virtual viewing for you so contact us today if you would like to have one made.
