Watch Review: The Ballon Bleu de Cartier

NEW BLEU. With the display of seconds via the C-shaped tourbillon carriage that is set with an 18-karat white-gold case with white-gold circular-grained crown set with sapphire cabochon, sapphire crystal and guilloché galvanice slate-colored dial


The caliber 9452 flying tourbillon powering the luxury watch marked an important milestone in maison Cartier’s watchmaking history. As the first Cartier movement to carry the prestigious Geneva Seal, the movement is proven to have a particular geographic provenance and a high standard of watchmaking. Presented in the pictured Ballon Bleu de Cartier and a handful of other models from Cartier, the 9452 MC flying tourbillon movement epitomizes the brand’s commitment to fine horlogerie.
