Faithful to Cartier‘s tradition of shaped cases, the Pasha plays with the geometry of a square inside a circle and is easy to recognise thanks to its cabochon-capped crown protector attached to a small chain. Among the 2022 releases was a surprising and not very publicised version that proved even more surprising in the dark. We take a closer look at this Replica Pasha de Cartier Skeleton ADLC.
The Pasha, as we know it today, materialised in 1985 and was Cartier’s response to a luxury men’s sports watch. With plenty of dress watches and shaped cases, Cartier was missing a sporty, water-resistant model.
Inspired by a 1942 waterproof model with a protective grid on the dial, the Pasha’s round case with a square minute track featured a distinctive cabochon protector over the crown attached to a small chain and elegant Louis Cartier Vendome lugs.The AAA Cartier Pasha Replica is enjoying a new lease of life with a well-assorted range of watches for men and women alike.
Light And Dark
Lurking among the more conventional Pasha models of 2022, like the fun Pasha de Cartier Grille with its removable grill, was this Cheap Cartier Replica Skeleton ADLC. There is another skeletonised model in the collection, but it has a brightly polished case and doesn’t perform the magical blue glow-in-the-dark routine of this specific model. Although it is also made in stainless steel, it has a black brushed ADLC bezel that makes it stand out from its siblings with its darker, more technical, contemporary personality.
As a Pasha, the round case – 41mm in diameter and 10.45mm in height – features the signature sapphire cabochon-tipped crown protector and chain and the classic Vendome-style bars with rounded Clous de Paris tips designed and patented by Louis Cartier in 1934. The Cartier Replica Watches wide sloping bezel is brushed like the case, contrasting with the polished Clous de Paris lug tips, the crown, chain and clasp. Like other Pasha models, the chained crown protector conceals a small plate that can be engraved.
Picked out in an Art Deco font, the large Arabic numerals at 12, 3, 6 and 9 o’clock are indicated by Cartier’s signature sword-shaped hour and minute hands. Contrasting with the thick round sloping bezel is the square track for the minutes suspended in the centre of the dial, also forming part of the bridges.
Genta’s square-inside-a-circle concept is even more pronounced on this skeletonised model and glows with light blue Super-LumiNova. Applied to the four Arabic numerals, the indices, the Cartier Replica square minute track and the hands, the Pasha Skeleton puts on an impressive show in the dark.
Allowing light to flood the case from the front and back, the movement seems to float in space and features brushed finishings to match the suspended elements over the dial.
Turning the watch over reveals the large skeletonised rotor and bridges that echo the shape of the square minute track. Fitted with automatic calibre 9624MC, the skeletonised version of the 1904MC, the movement has double barrels for a 48-hour power reserve and beats at 28,800vph.
