Cartier d'Art

Ballon Bleu de Cartier watch

42 mm, rhodium-finished white gold, diamonds

REF: HPI00769

Cartier captures the ephemeral beauty of flowers with a form of craftsmanship new to watchmaking: floral marquetry. Flower petals are carefully cut and assembled on a thin wooden board to form the vibrant plumage of the parrot, contrasting with the sparkle of its onyx beak, emerald eye and precious backdrop of diamonds.
