In 1943, the creation of the Pasha de Cartier watch illustrated techniques that were true technological feats. A round case that is watertight to 10 bar (100 metres), sword-shaped hands, a screw-down crown cover secured to the case by a dainty chain… This unique timepiece is an example of elegance and power.
A contemporary design
To this day, the iconic Pasha has lost none of its power to seduce or its unique design. Available in several sizes and materials, diamond set or plain, the new edition of the Pasha is an eye-catcher that retains all of its original distinctive traits.
In keeping with its iconic "square inside a circle" concept (the square for the railway minute track and the circle for the shape of the dial), it features many of its signature design elements. Indeed, the four oversized Arabic numerals are still there, as are the four clous de Paris and the chained crown cover.
The new Pasha, the epitome of sophistication
Today’s new Pasha is packed with functions and design details that enhance its appearance and make it exceptionally comfortable. The crown, a key element of its design, adds to its highly refined aesthetics. Meanwhile, the stunning winding mechanism, which is hidden under the fluted crown cover, has a blue spinel in the steel version and a sapphire in the gold version.
In addition, there is an undetectable secret customisable engraving in the form of initials under the crown cover that is only revealed by unscrewing the chained crown. Powering the timepiece is calibre 1847 MC, a movement that is resistant to the magnetic fields to which we are exposed every day.
Lastly, you can easily take advantage of the wide selection of interchangeable straps thanks to the adaption of the QuickSwitch system, a Cartier-developed mechanism located under the case that is activated by a single push.
