And also the newest form of the cartier ballon bleu chronograph replica watches in steel has a slate gray dial which totally changes the feel of the timepiece. The only real factor that's different may be the colour pattern anything else within the design - proportion, shapes, fonts, guilloche, hands as well as the strap - is the same. However it looks completely different.
It's a large, 47 mm watch using the 8101 MC calibre, produced by JLC solely for Cartier. The 8101 MC may be the chronograph variant from the 8000 MC, a reasonably slim, 11 ? ''' movement with double barrels. While nothing extravagant, the movement finishing is enough maintaining true for any watch of the cost range.
Why is this especially interesting is its cost in steel, that is roughly US$9500. This represents significant value, in absolute terms in addition to in accordance with all of those other Cartier range within the same cost segment.
Visually the timepiece is idiosyncratic, unlike other Cartier watches. Typically Cartier watches possess the formal symmetry from the gardens at Versailles. Although the cartier ballon bleu chrono replica maintains the look factors that are Cartier's signature like guilloche dial and sword hands, the dial is particularly asymmetrical.
The date sits at nine o'clock as the chronograph counters occupy three and 6 o'clock. And also the minute tabs on the dial loops round the chronograph sub dials and date window, cutting in to the Roman numeral hour indices. Typically I observe that like a design faux pas however in this situation it is effective, giving the dial a cool, unconventional feel, a minimum of when compared to traditional Cartier.
