In 1985 Gerald Genta modified the design of the Cartier Pasha initially created for the Sultan of Marrakech making the grid disappear but the characteristic crowned cap, the screw-down crown and the bold Arabic numerals on the watch dial remain.: his efforts gave life to one of the most known models of modern days. The unique and inimitable design of the Pasha immediately became an icon of Cartier, perhaps also due to the history linked to the creation that wants to have taken place at the explicit request of a Sultan of Marrakech also called, precisely, Pasha. The present watch is encredibly rare piece as it is produced fully in Platinum in a limited edition of 1/1 piece. This unique piece stands out for its beauty and conditions: the stepped unidirectional bezel and the crown protect the case perfectly. The Arabic numerals together with a window for the date at 5 o’clock, a fascinating white dial and a white square in the middle of it complete the structure f this incredible timepiece.
