The Unique Ballon Bleu De Cartier Floral-Marquetry Parrot Timepiece

Updated on

The Floral Marquetry Parrot luxury watch might just be the most colorful piece in the Ballon Bleu de Cartier collection. It is made using a technique not often employed in watchmaking, namely floral marquetry, which in this case is the arrangement of colorful petals on the dial to create a larger decorative design element.

This beautiful, exclusive timepiece features a colorful parrot figure on its dial, making it really stand out in comparison to virtually any other luxury watch out there. The fact that Cartier used petals to represent the parrot’s plumage instead of feathers is an interesting choice in and of itself, adding to the timepiece’s appeal .Something else that makes it stand out is the 42mm wide 18k white gold case, adorned with 124 small diamonds.

Only 20 Ballon Bleu De Cartier Floral-Marquetry Parrot are expected to be produced, making this series as exclusive as it is distinctive.
