With its distinctive codes, chained crown and extraordinary design, the Pasha has been a watch for those who think big since its creation in 1985. “The Pasha is both an aesthetic and a feeling of strength and power… Moreover, when we launched it in 1985 it was immediately worn by an entire generation of opinion leaders. It has kept this strength.” Pierre Rainero, Director of Image, Style and Heritage at Cartier.
Successfully relaunched in 2020, the new Pasha de Cartier watch is sophisticated in terms of watchmaking functions and design details that combine to strengthen and maximise its ergonomic appeal: interchangeable straps, sapphire case back, a new crown and personalised engraving.
A cult watch whose repertoire is growing in 2021 with two new key designs: from a more feminine 30 mm version to a more masculine 41 mm chronograph version.
THE 41mm PASHA DE CARTIER CHRONOGRAPH WATCH
A NEW FUNCTIONALITY
Made to measure records, the new Cartier chronograph boosts the Pasha watch’s power and visibility. A strong approach that further enhances the watch’s design, accentuated by the presence of a rotating bezel and two push-pieces. Faithful to the historic version of the first Pasha chronographs, these two buttons, set with a cabochon, have kept the original design’s volume. A choice of both style and excess that is perfectly in line with the Pasha de Cartier spirit. “The chronograph interpretation differs from a simple display to offer a daring aesthetic alternative. This latest addition to the Pasha family thus revives the myth in a new light.” Marie-Laure Cérède, Director of Design for Watchmaking at Cartier.
This new chronograph version is equipped with a 1904-CH MC Cartier Manufacture movement and a sapphire case back. In steel or gold, all these versions can be interchanged thanks to an adaptation of the Cartier-developed QuickSwitch system. This invisible mechanism blends into an architecture located under the case and is activated by a single push. The metal bracelet can also be adjusted to the nearest link, without the need for tools, thanks to the SmartLink system.
