Predator In Disguise: the Ballon Bleu de Cartier Enamel Granulation Watch

Ballon Bleu de Cartier Enamel Granulation

One you get a glimpse of the sensational Ballon Bleu de Cartier Enamel Granulation watch, you’ll be completely mesmerized and overwhelmed. Unveiled at this year’s SIHH in Geneva, this interesting timepiece has been entirely handmade at the Cartier Maison des Métiers d’Art.

The latest addition to Cartier’s Métiers D’Art collection, this timepiece was actually inspired by the Cartier Ronde Louis Cartier Filigree watch, that introduced last year.

Continuing the panther theme, the new Cartier piece shows off enamel granulation, an artistic process that employs the combined mastery of enameling and the art of Etruscan granulation. The Panther’s head featured on the piece is surprisingly lifelike, taking over the entire dial in a superb way.

With a 42 mm case made from 18-carat yellow gold and set with 124 brilliant-cut diamonds, this extraordinary timepiece should be easily on every collector’s mind, especially since this watch will be produced in a limited seris of just 30 pieces, each of them being individually numbered.

Adding to the overall charm of this jewel is a dark blue strap, made from alligator skin, which contrasts beautifully with the lively dial. The Ballon Bleu de Cartier enamel granulation watch probably won’t match your every wardrobe choice, but it will definitely get the attention you crave so much.
