The Cartier Ballon Bleu Collection has arguable become their most iconic and successful collection in Cartier history.
For 2014, Cartier have released the new Ballon Bleu Extra- Flat in 18K pink gold. This is the first time we are seeing a Cartier Ballon Bleu in a 40mm size. The thickness on the Ballon Bleu is generally between 12.5 to 13 mm in thickness. The new Cartier Ballon Bleu Extra-Flat is a remarkable and elegant 6.9 mm in thickness which is almost half as thick .
This new arrival is available in two dial options, standard silver guilloche dial with steel blued sword hands and a stunning new grey guilloche dial with 18k pink gold sword hands. The movement is the manual wind Cartier caliber 430MC which is a Piaget Base movement. At the moment this watch is fitted on a brown crocodile strap on the silver guilloche dial and black crocodile on the grey guilloche dial.
I love the versatility and sophistication of this watch for a man or women who wants refinement with rich yet subtle elegance on a crocodile strap.
