Cartier, including blue balloons, tanks, Sanders, keys, cheetahs, bathtubs and other series, is either a special female watch or a female watch. The larger size is the men’s watch; The smaller size is a women’s watch. In Cartier, there are only a few series, which have been designed for men since their birth. Such as Caleb, Drive and Pasha.

Pasha is one of the oldest watches in Cartier, but the antique watch has been lost.
Cartier Pasha was first introduced in 1932.
Pasha was a senior official in the administrative system of the Ottoman Empire, usually a governor or general. Why is Cartier’s watch called this name? According to textual research, this is because the Pasha watch in 1932 was made for Tamil Glavey (1879-1956) in Marrakech, Morocco. This militarily armed brother was one of the richest men in the world at that time. I also read some introductions, including how to start a business. There are 150 women in the harem, all of whom have historical records. This brother wants a waterproof watch that he can wear when taking a bath or swimming. This is Cartier Pasha in 1932. Unfortunately, this antique watch is lost.
The historical prototype of Pasha in 1932 was made for this brother.
Cartier Modern Pasha was launched in 1985. Because the antique watch in 1932 was lost, Cartier asked Master Gero Zunda (designer of Audemars Piguet Royal Oak and Patek Philippe Nautilus) to redesign it according to some design records, such as a round watch with a square track scale on the dial and a small chain protective cap on the crown. The final product is what we see today.
Gero Zunda, a famous watch designer, has passed away. The picture shows a photo of him when he was young.

Pasha is the sports style of Cartier.
Cartier Pasha is one of the earliest waterproof watches in the world (note that it is waterproof, not diving). Rolex introduced waterproof oyster watches in 1926, followed by Cartier Pasha in 1932. Pasha is born with athletic attributes. Cartier’s new generation Pasha will be launched in 2020. This chronograph watch has a fine steel case, with a size of 41mm and a thickness of 11.97mm.. For an automatic chronograph, the size is moderate, not too thick. Different from the conventional big three-needle, the chronograph has a unidirectional rotating bezel, which is completely polished and has numbers and scales similar to diving watches, so as to highlight Pasha’s “waterproof watch origin”. Outside the bezel, the side of the case is all brushed to enhance the sense of movement of the watch (waterproof for 100 meters).
Pasha is Cartier’s middle sports style.
Cartier Pasha, the most unique place is the crown. Pasha has a “little hat” which is fastened to the crown with a chain. Unscrew this “small cap” and it is the crown that is really used to wind and adjust the watch. The “small cap” is used to protect the crown and enhance water resistance. In contrast, the real crown is very small, but don’t look at it, it works normally and there is nothing wrong with it. The blue spinel on the crown and timing button is the main symbol of Cartier. The exquisiteness of blue spinel is in sharp contrast with Pasha’s sporty appearance, which makes this watch both sporty and luxurious, which is Cartier’s strength.

Unscrew the crown cover to show the crown status.
In the round dial, there is a square scale, which is another major feature of Cartier Pasha. On this timepiece, the lines extending from the square scale are connected with the luminous time scale on the dial. Cartier has always attached great importance to dial decoration. Pasha spread the lasso line from the center of the dial to all sides, divided by square scales, and the lasso line covered the whole dial. Three small dials are decorated with records (3: 30, 9: 12 and 6: 00). All the hands of the watch are baked blue, and the whole dial is full of artistic sense under complex decoration.
In the center of Pasha’s dial, there is a square engraved line.
In the center of the dial, twisted lines are scattered around.

Cartier Pasha, another important appearance detail is the watch ear. Pasha uses “stick ears”. At the joint between the meter head and the bracelet, a metal bar passes through. The left and right ends of the ear are shaped like pyramids. The H-shaped links of the bracelet are brushed and the middle links are polished. Watch chain, one-button quick release, press the button behind the watch ear, the watch chain will be removed, and the metal chain and belt can be easily switched. Meanwhile, the length of the metal bracelet can be adjusted without tools. As long as you press the hidden button on the watch chain, you can remove a watch chain, and it is easy to add and cut watch chain segments yourself. These technical details that are convenient for players are well done by Cartier.

Pasha chronograph adopts Cartier’s self-made 1904CH MC automatic chronograph movement. 1904CH MC chronograph movement is a cylindrical wheel and vertical clutch chronograph movement. The oscillation frequency is 28,800 times/hour and the power is 48 hours. The automatic movement and the upper splint are decorated with Geneva stripes, and the lower splint is decorated with fish scales. This movement, in addition to Cartier, is also provided for the same group of Earls (that is, the 1160P chronograph movement used by Count POLO). From the technical source, Cartier 1904CH MC automatic chronograph, Jaeger-LeCoultre 751 automatic chronograph movement and Blancpain 1185 automatic movement all have certain kinship.

Pasha chronograph is one of the most sporty watches sold by Cartier, which combines sportiness with elegance and luxury. Compared with Cartier’s blue balloon, Sandoz, tank and other brands, Pasha chronograph is not easy to hit the watch. Its unique shape, even if it is slightly exposed from the cuff, the crown and the three blue spinels on the chronograph button can make this watch stand out.
