Ballon Bleu de Cartier Automatic
The Ballon Bleu de Cartier Automatic is one of the most elegant watches you can wear for everyday. It’s a watch that can be worn from the office to casual gatherings, but also has an air of class with the round case that makes it perfect for formal occasions.
This particular line features watch cases that range in size from 28mm to 46mm, providing sizes for all wrists and preferences. The reliable and accurate automatic movement is encased in either stainless-steel or rose gold with a guilloche dial of silver, blue, pink, or dark grey. There are even options when it comes to the hands in blue or white steel. The hour markers are classic and simply elegant applied Roman numerals.
Ballon Bleu de Cartier Quartz
The Ballon Bleu de Cartier Quartz features the more inexpensive quartz movement, with no winding necessary. Despite the change in movement, it’s known for incredible reliability and accuracy with batteries that typically last 2 to 3 years.
This particular line features sizes for men and women with case diameters ranging from 28mm to 42mm. The case can be manufactured in stainless steel or gold with only a silver opaline dial. The iconic hands are in blue steel with the classic and elegant Roman numeral hour markers that typify the line. Included on this model is a simple date window at 3 o’clock.
Depending on your preferences, you can get a matching bracelet in stainless steel or gold or a sleek leather strap. You also have the option of adding more luxury to your wrist with diamond-set cases.

Ballon Bleu de Cartier Diamond
The Ballon Bleu de Cartier Diamond shares the same features as the Ballon Bleu de Cartier Automatic, except that it has a diamond-set bezel and hour markers. Like the other models, this line caters to both men and women with case sizes ranging from 28mm to 42mm in stainless steel or rose gold.
The diamond hour markers are set into a silver opaline dial with the classic blue steel hands. While typically, this lovely piece straps to your wrist with supple leather, you can get matching linked bracelets in stainless steel or rose gold.
The Ballon Bleu de Cartier Diamond line is powered by a mechanical movement, rather than quartz and whether it’s manual or automatic depends on the model itself. Either way, the movements come with power reserves between 38 and 42 hours.

Ballon Blanc de Cartier
The Ballon Blanc de Cartier is a watch that appears to have been created for those who want something fancy and elegant with its feminine and distinctive round case shape and fluted crown.

This watch comes in many different styles a various strap options. The typical Ballon Bleu design is replaced with a single diamond set at 4 o’clock within the case itself. The case can be constructed from stainless steel or rose gold with the Ballon Bleu silver opaline dial and blue sword-shaped hands of Cartier.

Ballon Bleu Extra Flat
The Ballon Bleu Extra Flat comes in the more modern 46mm, larger case but that only serves to accentuate the 7mm thinness against your wrist. So, while, for a Cartier watch, it’s wider than usual, it’s also incredibly and comfortably flat against your wrist, easily slipping right underneath that shirt cuff.
Cartier was able to achieve this amazingly thin model thanks to the manual winding caliber 430 MC. Combine that with the slight curve to the lugs and you have a large watch that settles right into the natural curvature of your wrist for endless comfort.
There are several references in the line that come in various materials like rose and white gold. A special platinum case is the only reference to feature a stunning blue dial. The gold models feature the typical silver dial with a guilloche, sunburst effect that perfectly contrasts with the stark black Roman numeral hour markers. The two dark, sword-shaped hands finish off the simple elegance that draws many a watch aficionado to add Cartier to their collection.

Who wears Cartier Ballon Bleu watches?
This newer line launched in 2007 quickly rose to fame and became one of Cartier’s most popular watches alongside the Tank. Designed to look like an elegant balloon on the wrist (hence the name) Cartier was able to combine traditional watchmaking with more modern elements to appeal to a larger audience.
With its classic elegance, it’s no wonder you see one of these models gracing the wrists of celebrities and royals. Actress Sofia Vergara was snapped wearing her own model in Miami. You’ll also find photographs of stars like Justin Bieber, Johnny Depp, and Usher sporting this luxury piece on their wrists. Princess of Wales, Kate Middleton frequently wears a Ballon Bleu, a gift from her husband Prince William, and it also happens to be the favorite watch of her sister Pippa Middleton.
