The gorgeous 123 brilliant-cut diamonds that adorn the dial of Ballon Bleu de Cartier Serti Vibrant watch are given a gentle movement from the dial vibration, a technique known as “en tremblant”. “En tremblant” is a French term – meaning “to tremble”, was first used to describe 18th and 19th century jewelry where parts of the diamond set pieces were attached to a trembler to create movement in the jewel when worn. The pieces of jewelry mounted in this way were particularly effective in reflecting the scintillating fire of candlelight.
