Cartier people: need help, which Pasha?

 By: : March 19th, 2020-08:08
Seems like I am catching a serious Cartier bug and decided that my third watch (following a YG Dumont and a YG Tonneau) from Le Maison should be the Pasha. I do have a soft spot for yellow gold and like the models with a grill. Bu a gold model with the grill is unfortunately outside my price range. So my question is, which would you go for: A) the 150th anniversary model in SS with grill and red(!) cabochon. Or B) the 38mm gold model with diver bezel. Input much appreciated.

Both are excellent choice; I'd go for the SS grill if forced to choose at gun point. If possible, I'll pick both for my permanent collection. Regards [nt]

The grill bezel does have a strange feeling to it in these times of quarantine [nt]

I'll take that as a vote for the gold. 1:1

I would pick the SS .

I prefer the 150th Anniversary

It's a unique model with its red spinel in the crown.
And the steel version is, at least for me, easier to wear than the yellow gold version.
The 38mm steel version was also available with the four Arabic numerals and the grid,
should you prefer that to the 12 Roman numerals.


Thank you Geo

Your opinion is deeply appreciated. While I would normally veer towards the original dial design with its four Arabic numerals, I do like the Roman numerals and think it speaks a bit more to the Cartier style. I know there is a gold version with Roman numbers as well and a rose engine dial.
As someone who owns botg the gold and the steel versions could you comment on the wrist feel and heft?

I have the SS 150th (just back from servicing, too) and it is one of my regular wearers. Accurate and tough enough for routine use. I wouldn't want too many dings on a gold one.

Great to hear from a regular wearer!

 By: : March 20th, 2020-13:46 it just photos playing me a trick or is the text on the bezel blue rather than black?

The legibility with the grill on is very poor, but it is still very cool. My favourite pasha is the GMT on the bracelet.
