Cartier present a new slender edition of their iconic dress watch the Cartier Ballon Bleu Extra-Flat. At 46mm it's almost out-size, but it is so slim that the signature blue cabochon crown bulges over the case sides accentuating its presence to stunning effect.
Three versions are available, 18 carat pink gold and white gold with silver guilloché dial and a platinum edition with an exquisite deep blue dial. All are limited editions.
The Cartier Ballon Bleu is of course a bit of a classic - those substantial Roman numerals, the minute track which curves to accommodate that more than distinctive winding crown, it's a watch that you would instantly recognise across a crowded room. Cartier will always find customers for the Ballon Bleu, it will always sell. That this one is flatter means it will rest easily on the wrist, that it is broader means that just a little bit more will peek out from beneath your tailored cuff, it's a win/win on all accounts.
