With the invention of a revolutionary setting, Cartier starts a new chapter of its watchmaking and jewellery history. At the end of the 19th century, the so-called “trembling setting” technique was introduced, enabling Cartier to let its diamonds move freely without restraint. Today, this has inspired Cartier’s ground-breaking Vibrating Setting, a feminine and modern creation.

This magical version of the Ballon Bleu de Cartier watch is designed to reveal the energy within the diamonds. It sparkles with brilliance yet radiates a gentle softness. The Vibrating Setting is truly revolutionary and Cartier has made several patent applications for this ingenious invisible system which brings precious stones to life. The diamond studded dial shakes to give slight movement to the 123 brilliant diamonds.
