About Cartier Ballon Bleu

Very few watches look great from a distance and even better up close. The Cartier Ballon Bleu is an excellent example. Founded in 1847, the House of Cartier was originally a jewelry boutique that catered to royals, and this is evident in the beauty of its watches. Ballon Bleu chronograph watches boast elegant artisanship, with diamond-studded dials, golden bezels, and bracelets constructed of smoothly polished metal. Roman numerals enhance the elegance of the watch's crystal clear display, making it easy to see from a distance. The dial also hosts sword-shaped hands powered by the brand's famous sapphire cabochon winding mechanism. Available on eBay, the Cartier Ballon Bleu line offers a wide variety of watches designed to fit both men and women. Watches come with a range of options for straps. You can opt for the comfortable feel of a leather strap, or choose watches that display elegant metal bracelets adorned with precious metals. Designed to last, a Ballon Bleu makes an ideal gifting choice for someone special in your life. It also makes an excellent heirloom piece. Some watches transcend their chronograph features and become living works of art. For every Cartier timepiece, this is true.
