Pasha de Cartier: A Cult-Favorite Timepiece Collection For the Cultured
November 2nd, 2020
Thirty-five years after its release, the Pasha de Cartier Collection is able to maintain its distinctive design with an updated automatic mechanical movement for today's busy lifestyles. With this redesigned collection, Cartier continues to produce bold and iconic designs that will never go out of style.
Cartier: Iconic Designs Fit For Royalty
If jewelry designers lived under a monarchy, Cartier would reign as the king of jewelers. Cartier is known for its bespoke jewelry and impeccable timepieces. In particular, its luxury timepieces stand as a symbol of elegance and craftsmanship. Founded in 1847 in Paris, Cartier has a long history of catering to the sensibilities of the elite. One of its most lasting collections has been the Pasha de Cartier, an idiosyncratic and sophisticated timepiece like no other.
Pasha de Cartier: Luxury Women's Watches
Introduced to the world in 1985, the Pasha de Cartier Collection was designed by the iconic G�rald Genta. At the time, the collection sought to combine an oversized design but retain Cartier's innate elegance. Some say the collection was named after Louis Cartier's bespoke timepiece for the Sultan of Marrakech in the 1930s. However, the Pasha collection's popularity slowly faded over time to make room for several other iconic creations.
Signature features of the collection include its unique square-inside-a-circle dial design. A new and improved Pasha design brings the same distinctive features that attracted the fashionistas of the 80s and adds a contemporary flair for today's tastes. The Pasha collection keeps the clean Arabic numerals, oversized design, and signature circular case to create a contrast with the square motif within the dial.
Beyond its refined dial features, the Pasha collection is most known for its chained crown guard. The crown guard is adorned with a blue sapphire and can be unscrewed to reveal a winding crown set with blue sapphire or blue spinel. For an added touch of luxury, you can have your initials engraved underneath the crown guard.
Pair the collection's bold case designs with steel, gold, or leather straps, depending on your ensemble or mood. Each strap can be easily changed using the collection's QuickSwitch system. With the push of a button, you can add or remove links without having to bring in your timepiece into the shop.
Turn this innovative piece over to uncover a sophisticated sapphire crystal caseback. The case offers the ultimate protection against water and magnetism. A paramagnetic alloy protects your accessory from magnetic fields nearby. Pasha timepieces have a water-resistance of 100 meters.
Choose different designs in two sizes: 35 mm or 41 mm. Both sizes are available with either a strap and a bracelet, or two bracelets. Some models even have pink gold and diamond accents to truly outshine any of your other accessories.
