In 1985 Gerald Genta modified the design of the Cartier Pasha initially created for the Pasha of Marrakech, giving life to the model known today, removing the protective grid of the dial but keeping the distinctive chain with a screw cap. As often happens with models so requested, further complications were added to make an object already fascinating in an even more attractive one to the collectors market and beyond. The present fine and rare, self-winding, water-resistant, minute repeating Pasha is a stunning object for quality and conservation. The 18K yellow-gold case strikes for its quality and so does the 18k gold Cartier brick-link bracelet with concealed double deployant clasp. Equipped with a perpetual calendar, moon phases, the always fascinating complication of minute repetition with two hammers is activated by a button with a sapphire cabochon. The white dial is untouched and sees three circular compasses for days, date, months combined with leap year indication and opening for the phases moon. All these complications in a single watch designed by the genius of Gerald Genta make this watch one of a kind and highly appreciated by collectors, an authentic piece of art ready to be owned and placed in an important collection.
