Cartier Pasha Automatic Watches
In 1933 Louis Cartier released the Pasha Watch at the behest of the Pasha of Marrakesh, then acting governor of Marrakesh- a major northern city in Morrocco- who expressed a desire to be free to wear a watch while swimming. The view of the Title of Pasha was largely ceremonious and would have been equivalent to that of a British Lord. At the time of its release the Cartier Pasha Watch was one of the first water resistant watches, created with minimal jewelry decoration, the crown had a removable metal piece and the watch was protected from the inside with a rubber gasket. The watch was also first issued with a protective grid, similar to watches used by the military of the time. Today, however, the view of this grid is more of a decorative item on the watch often featuring stainless steel, 18K white gold 18K yellow gold, or 18K rose gold
As the Cartier Pasha Watch family grew and expanded, adding new features and items to the watches, a ladies line was introduced alongside the men's watch and new options such as quartz, manual, and automatic watches became available to buy. Today the round, and modern view of a Cartier Pasha watch is unmistakable and there are currently several models of the watch from Cartier available including the Miss Pasha, Pasha Seatimer, Pasha Skeleton Flying Tourbillion, and the Pasha De Cartier. For each model of watch that has been introduced by Cartier there is a wide choice of jewelry options to buy including stainless steel, white gold, yellow gold, or rose gold, or platinum. There is also the possibility of united different precious metals accessories like stainless steel, white gold, yellow gold, or rose gold with diamonds. Some of the features for the Pasha watch one might view may include a black or white dial with a day of the month feature, a Black rubber, stainless steel, or a Black alligator strap, while the view of diamond jewelry from the Miss Pasha watch becomes a bit more ornate featuring accessories such as stainless steel and 18K white gold, or 18K rose gold with diamonds and a textile bracelet, stainless steel and rose gold with diamonds, yellow gold or white gold with diamonds and a textile bracelet.
The distinctive nature of the Cartier Pasha watch stands out in anyone's view of it, while at the same time, respecting the illustrious tradition from which Cartier watchmaking was born.
