Cartier Classics (Jewellers since 1847)

Ballon Bleu de Cartier, 42mm steel (bottom). Pasha C de Cartier, 35mm steel (top)

If Tiffany & Co. has its little blue box, then Cartier has its red. To own a piece of classic accessories, you have to include one of Cartier's. We, each own one of these beauties.

His large convex sapphire floats on his wrist, resembling the curves of a balloon! While trying to be funky, a classy blue sapphire dons the turning crown. Together with antiquated Roman numerals on a guilloche dial, the watch repossesses its elegance.

My polished white-faced enchants with its sharp satin-finished bracelet; reflecting light modestly yet smartly! Big date mechanism was hot on my pursuit. The screw-down crown cap, attached to the case by a small chain shares my illusion of being a pretty mariner! There is never a dull moment with the Pasha.

Both were attached with blued steel hands, a noble color created by heating the steel to the highest possible temperature for a certain period of time. Love Cartier, for often toying with the rules of elegance.
