The Genta Effect …
The Pasha de Cartier appeared in the the Cartier watch collection in 1985. The inspiration for the model was supposedly a watch made in around 1932 for the Pasha de Marrakech, however this is disputed.
Gerald Genta has been credited with reviving the Pasha in the 1980s taking inspiration from its original design details.
Now we have the Pasha de Cartier Skeleton ADLC. The skeleton dial that emits an impressive blue glow treatment. The case is made from stainless steel and has a black brushed ADLC bezel that gives this model a contemporary and elegant style.
The skeleton dial, with its signature four oversized Arabic numerals looks very good and emits an impressive blue glow, would have been perfect for night out at Studio 54 back in the day !
The case size is slightly deceptive at 41mm in diameter and 10.45mm in height as it features the Cartier classic design statement, sapphire cabochon tipped crown with the chain detail. Cartier’s sword-shaped hour and minute hands always look superb especially with this lume treatment.

This Cartier has the automatic calibre 9624MC, which is the skeletonised version of the 1904MC, the movement giving a power reserve of approximately 48 hours and beats at 28,800vph. Personally, I would have liked a longer power reserve as I switch watches frequently, but you can’t have everything.
The good news is that this piece is available as part of the Cartier standard collection.
What are your thoughts on this Cartier ?
