Cartier Interprets Ballon Blanc Watch In Comics

 Like the poems of French modern poet Baudelaire, chanting the enthusiasm of spirit and senses. Light as if without weight, the Ballon Blanc de Cartier watch turns Cartier’s classic design elements into its own and creates a new look, like a woman changing her makeup. The case still maintains the charming pebble shape, like a precious powder box. The guilloché mother-of-pearl dial, sword-shaped blue-steel hands—the iconic elements of the Ballon de Cartier collection are absent. The Roman numerals and minute track are slightly off track to highlight a dazzling diamond set at 4 o’clock. The bracelet is composed of five rows of perfectly shaped “bubbles”. The surface or diamonds are set or shiny and smooth, as if a bay stream is pouring down.

Their gorgeous skills are enough to match this irresistible new watch. Young Japanese cartoonist Gao Yankuan portrays a woman on a life adventure; Parisian cartoonist Nadja tells what is eternal beauty; British-style Posy Simmonds captures the light of women’s hands with her keen eyes; and Rebecca Dautremer uses fairy tales The brushstrokes pass through the generations, telling the eternal feelings. In addition to four female painters, male illustrator Floc’h was also invited to join in the creation, performing ‘Slaves of the Heart’ in an elegant style. In the summer of Tokyo, Paris in the fall, London in the winter and mysterious fantasy, the Ballon de Cartier series is transformed into four dream-like stories, blooming with fascination.
