Cartier refreshed and re-released its best replica Pasha collection — born in 1932 as the jeweler’s first waterproof watch and redesigned in 1985 — at Watches & Wonders 2020. The new models revive the highlights of the model’s ’80s design and adds some contemporary flair, along with modern in-house movements.
The series includes the first skeletonized version, the Swiss made fake Pasha de Cartier Skeleton. Like its predecessors, its unconventional design features a round case and dial offset by a square minute track. The chained, screwed crowns, a hallmark of the original Pasha, have been updated with the blue sapphires and spinels that are now common on modern Cartier crowns.
Underneath the hinged crown cover is a hidden area in which the owner can personalize his or her watch with engraved initials — a subtle personalization visible only when the crown is disengaged. The openworked version of Cartier’s in-house Caliber 1847 MC has the hour numerals cleverly formed from its bridges.
