Pasha de Cartier from the '80

Sep 08, 2018,23:30 PM

Good memories of this watch.

It was not only the watch that I was wearing every day to work, back in the '80,
it is also the watch that pushed my Instagram to 10K followers this weekend.
So after more than 30 years, I still love this watch a lot, with or without the grill.
Originally I bought the watch at Cartier Zurich, with a leather strap and tang buckle.
But a year later Cartier Miami found me the Figaro bracelet, in one of their BTQs. 
In Europe it was completely sold out and was replaced by another, more masculine, 
model. This is the strength of the chain of BTQ's, finding a watch in an other town
or state. To me this is still the best bracelet Cartier made for this watch and also the
smaller version, we see on the Panthere models is so comfotable.
Have a good Sunday guys!

You're so right, the date window is a pity

and in that respect the 42mm model, without date, looks much better. But it has no grill. GEO

A true iconic watch from the 80s imo .

at ist best. No surprise, coming from you, my friend As a vintage piece it gets wearable in my book, if you know what I mean. Superb

You're often an example for me. GEO

First saw these in Japan after 1991

During the boom years, many people had either a Cartier or a Frank Müller in Japan corporate ladders for office ladies. Of course, the steel models were more pravalent. Regards, MTF

Japan is such a different market

I will be in Tokyo soon and hope to discover where everybody is talking about. It must have been changed a lot since 1991. GEO

That book 'The Watch' by Gene Stone is a very nice allround watch book. It is currently re written by Gene Stone and (I think) Stephen Pulvirent and the book will be re released, with a new content, later this year. GEO

My big pleasure dear Geo! Yes, "the Watch" is a very charming little book very nice to have. Yes, I have seen the new edition offered co authored with Pulvirent and revised and enlarged...

... And I hope they will keep including your article about your beautiful Pasha and bracelet in the new edition. All the best, Abel.

Thank you for the update

I love this watch! I noticed you have no scratches on the bezel, how do you maintain the gold to avoid scratches. It looks new! Thank you, James.

No idea actually, I have been wearing the watch daily to work

 By: Geo : March 24th, 2020-01:52
and it has never been really polished. Now I only wear it once in a while, it is one of my first watches. GEO
