The Cartier Pasha Seatimer
Based loosely on the first circular dial introduced by Cartier in 1943, the Cartier Pasha collection traces its roots back to old military watches designed to withstand a range of challenging conditions. This made the Pasha among the earliest water resistant wristwatches on the market, supposedly designed to fulfil the Pasha of Marrakech’s request for a watch he could wear in the pool. The Cartier Pasha Seatimer is of course the logical conclusion of this legacy, a durable and dependable watch designed for seafaring souls and underwater explorers.
Initially designed with a protective grid similar to army watches of the time, the Pasha was made for active men, although women too quickly embraced this desirable timepiece that prizes pure functionality. This grid-like feature can still be found as a decorative addition to some examples of the Pasha watch today. In addition to this, each model found within the Pasha collection features a screw down cap attached by a small chain, elegant sword-shaped hands, and classical Arabic numerals as standard.
Made for the Ocean – The Cartier Pasha Seatimer Watch
The Seatimer Pasha Cartier is first and foremost a watch of indispensable utility. Powerful, solid, and robust, it is the perfect companion to ocean goers the world over, diving deep into the blue or sailing effortlessly from coast to coast. With a water resistance of 100 meters / 330 feet and luminescent hands for greater dial clarity in the murky depths or starless nights, the Cartier Seatimer is designed to be seen and submerged. A nautical accessory crafted for the free spirit, the Cartier Pasha Seatimer combines form and function to unparalleled effect.
However, in spite of Cartier Pasha Seatimer watches’ practical raison d'être, these timepieces also pay tribute to the Maison’s rich heritage in fine jewelry manufacture. Sporting diamond-studded bezels and lavishly decorated grids that recall the watch’s military inspiration, many examples of the Cartier Seatimer Pasha are also designed to display an opulence and affluence not usually associated with other timepieces of this nature. Casings crafted in pink and yellow gold complement the steel models to bring a sophisticated and stately character to this collection. What’s more, with matching metal bracelets designed to keep your watch secure and further enhance its aesthetic, the Pasha Seatimer is as indispensable as it is alluring.
