As a female with an interest in horology, it is often frustrating to see the feats of watchmaking hidden behind diamond dials that are predictably marketed as ‘charming’ and ‘alluring’. This all-too-common design approach runs the risk of creating Swiss Cartier Replica Watches that are inaccessible and monotonous for those who aren’t looking for a sparkling version of what is ultimately a smaller, more expensive version of a watch primarily meant for gentlemen.
It is also a lazy solution which fails to take into account the aesthetic changes required for a ladies watch. Like many men, we also appreciate a fine, classic timepiece. Ladies don’t necessarily want the glitz and glamour that is inevitably poured over so many ladies’ watches.
This statement continues to ring true today within the luxury watch sector. It is also the reason I fell in love with the stainless-steel Ballon Bleu de Cartier Replica 36 mm (36.6 mm, to be precise). It’s so simple, so beautiful, and, as the name suggests, leaves you feeling attractive, low-key and care-free.
A Broad Appeal
One joy of the Cheap Cartier Ballon Bleu Replica is that it is one of those rare creations that equally suits both genders. On men, such as R&B legend Usher, it looks relaxed, yet refined, and actually surprisingly alternative. Meanwhile, on women, it exudes class and style. Furthermore, it looks good with pretty much anything; a denim jacket, a little black dress, or even a suit.
Secondly, the Ballon Bleu de Cartier is an enduringly relevant timepiece. While gaudy watches heavily adorned with diamonds and precious metals simply don’t suit everyone (not least younger generations), the Ballon Bleu de Cartier transcends both age and time. Its subtle, stable design means there’s no danger of it going out of style, allowing it to continue down the family line to sons and daughters alike.
Naturally, the brand has played around with the Luxury Cartier Replica watch, creating an array of different styles. This ranges from the inevitable sprucing up of models with diamonds and pink dials, to more complicated versions, such as a moonphase or a flying tourbillon. However, to me, minimalism is key to the austere beauty of the Ballon Bleu.
The Highlights of the Cartier Ballon Bleu
Looking at the Ballon Bleu de Cartier AAA Replica Watches, the graceful arc steadfastly protecting the fluted crown inevitably draws one’s attention. However, this elegant and iconic integrated crown guard doesn’t come without a downside. Dust easily gets into the small concave within, and this tiny inner space can be irritatingly difficult to clean.
The blue cabochon is an important and recognisable design feature that is very noticeable on other Cartier watches, such as the Pasha du Cartier or Santos-Dumont. However, once again, the Ballon Bleu de Cartier ultimately dials it down.The stainless-steel model undoubtedly reigns supreme in comparison with, for example, the bicolour version, which features a somewhat garish yellow-gold crown within the stainless-steel arc.
Despite the watch looking surprisingly flat from a bird’s eye view, the shapely sapphire crystal is domed when viewed from the side. If you turn the Best Replica Watches over and press it lightly against a flat surface, you can feel its roundness. Despite the model’s relatively sturdy appearance, the watch has a water-resistance of only 30 m. However, given the everyday luxury watch’s purpose, it hardly requires more.
Finally, the versatile Ballon Bleu Quality Replica Watches are available in a range of case sizes: 28 mm, 33 mm, 36 mm, 37 mm (moonphase), 40 mm, and 42 mm. Materials offered include rose-gold, stainless-steel, yellow-gold, white-gold, or bicolour (gold and steel).
The silver opaline dial is not only sunburst but also guilloché, playfully switching between the two motifs. Aside from that, the dial keeps things relatively simple, featuring unapologetically large black “Frappé” Roman numerals. The VII numeral integrates the Cartier logo, Meanwhile, the numeral III, along with the minute track, curves inwards to make room for the oval concave around the blue spinel cabochon. This is another design feature that is unique to the Ballon Bleu de Cartier Replica Watches China.
In photographs, the sword-shaped, polished blue steel hands stand out proudly. However, in real life, their blue colour are somewhat harder to make out unless in bright lighting, due to their fairly dark hue. At 6 o’clock, almost as if to prove a point, the words “SWISS MADE” are printed across the slim guilloché outer ring.
This watch’s design is all about simplicity and clarity, and, thankfully, it has the calibre to match. The 36 mm model houses the self-winding Cartier Best Replica Watches In The World calibre 076. Using the ETA 2671 as its base, the movement has a diameter of 17.2 mm and integrates 25 jewels.
The movement beats at a perfectly respectable frequency of 4 Hz, and provides an equally decent power reserve of approximately 38 hours. Additionally, it uses a Glucydur balance – made with a non-magnetic, hard copper alloy, it protects the movement from the likes of laptops.
Personally, I’m neither a leather strap nor bicolour bracelet fan, and on the Ballon Bleu de Cartier 1:1 Replica Watches, I don’t think anything fits better than the stainless-steel bracelet option, held together with screws. The bracelet, which is a mixture of brushed and polished steel, is well suited to the timepiece’s simple yet strong feel.
On the other hand, the bracelet, while seamlessly executed aesthetically, uses a hidden clasp. This involves the process of ‘snapping’ it open and closed, requiring knowledge of where to put pressure. If you’re choosing the Ballon Bleu as one of the first pieces in your Swiss watch collection, you will have to learn how to operate it.
A ladies (or indeed unisex) grade 1 Replica Watches, such as the Ballon Bleu, does not have to be covered in unimaginative, overbearing diamonds to be considered a luxury timepiece. Admittedly, the calibre within the 36 mm stainless-steel Ballon Bleu is not going to break any records any time soon, but neither does it try to.
