The two-tone luxury fake Pasha de Cartier 41mm watch on the wrist
On the wrist, the 41×9.95mm fake Pasha de Cartier feels pretty slim and comfortable. The steel case with its yellow gold bezel is water-resistant to 100 meters, something the Pasha of Marrakech — allegedly he only used his special watch only in the swimming pool — would definitely approve. The surfaces are a mix of brushed and polished finishes. It’s the large, sloping bezel in luxuriously mirror-polished yellow gold that sets the tone for this particular Pasha model. The polished yellow gold middle links stand out from the outer steel links with a brushed finish.
On the silvered dial, a stamped guilloché decoration plays with the light. To create a more dynamic dial, Cartier also gave the dial a subtle gradient effect with the edges being slightly darker than the center. A Pasha isn’t a Pasha without four large Arabic numerals – they are a contemporary touch to the traditionally colored and decorated dial. The blued sword-shaped hands indicate the hours and minutes. And there’s also a central seconds hand plus a date window between 4 and 5 o’clock.
Easing the pain with decorations
When you flip the Pasha you come eye to eye with Cartier’s in-house Calibre 1847 MC. This is an automatic, entry-level 4Hz movement that replaces the ETA calibers Cartier used in the past. The anti-magnetic properties are on point thanks to Cartier having used non-magnetic nickel phosphorous components for the escapement mechanism and also made some sort of shield made of a paramagnetic alloy.
A bit less innovative or impressive is the traditional/old-fashioned 40-hour power reserve. Maybe the Côtes de Genève decorations on the rotor and bridges can ease that pain a little.
How did the high quality copy Pasha de Cartier make me feel?
This is quite an easy question to answer, to be honest. I liked it, but it didn’t make me put on old DJ Jean tracks if you know what I mean. It also made me realize that I like the bi-color 40mm Ballon Blue better if I had to choose. The copy Pasha de Cartier in steel and yellow gold sells for €11,200. Apart from DJ Jean, I’m sure the target group consists of early adopters when it comes to house and acid who get that warm glowing feeling when looking at the watch. They will be hit with hazy memories of grandiose parties without end and want to get that feeling back, desperately.
And there’s also the new style-conscious YOLO generation that can’t wait for the clubs to re-open and the festival season to restart. The best replica Pasha de Cartier is ready to shine like it never shone before. It’s just a matter of time. More information on the different Pasha de Cartier models on the official website.
