IMMERSED IN BOLD STYLE
One of Cartier's oldest collections, the Pasha de Cartier is an homage to the round forms of yesteryear. Strong and assured in nature, this collection evokes power and irresistible seduction.
One of the earliest truly water-resistant watch designs, the Pasha de Cartier collection evokes the historical model created during the 40's as a pure union of form and function.
Historically the Turkish word "Pasha" was a title for a man of high rank. By extension, it designates a man of wealth and power who appreciates the finer things in life.
Powerful and solid with a broad, round dial, the original Pasha de Cartier watch featured a protective grid, like certain military watches. It was also water resistant, thanks to a screw-down crown and a cap (attached to a small chain) that prevented water from seeping in.
The Pasha de Cartier watch was launched in 1985 to great acclaim. Celebrities in particular were drawn to its commanding style. To mark the model's 10th annniversary, Cartier introduced the Pasha C model, crafted exclusively in steel. In 2005, the Pasha de Cartier 42mm watch appeared: it replicated the generous dimensions of the original Pasha de Cartier timepiece.
Bold artistry The Pasha de Cartier collection...
The Pasha de Cartier collection reflects the fashion for bold, impressive watches. The design of the Pasha de Cartier timepiece and its generous diameter (38mm) created quite a stir.
Hallmark of luxury
The gold Pasha de Cartier timepiece was immediately adopted by those who saw in it an expression of their own extravagant tastes and personalities. A range of accessories inspired by the Pasha de Cartier collection's aesthetic appearance (pens, fragrances, leather goods...) have made the name a byword for contemporary luxury.
An additional dimension of Cartier's creativity is the color of the hands on the dial. They are not black, but blue, and change hue in different lights.
Unmistakable character Pasha de Cartier watch...
Pasha de Cartier watches are immediately identifiable, owing to the bold round dial, Arabic numerals and distinctive screw-down crown and cap, enhanced by a cabochon and chain. The Pasha de Cartier collection comprises the Pasha C, Pasha de Cartier 42mm and 32mm (jeweled version) and the Pasha Seatimer.
The unconventional character of the Pasha de Cartier collection appeals to women as well as to men.
