The unique and inimitable design of the Pasha immediately became an icon of Cartier, perhaps also due to the history linked to its creation. The beginning is said to have taken place on the explicit request of a sultan of Marrakech also called, precisely, Pasha. In 1933 after passing numerous tests, the sultan El Glaoui got its “special” Tank, lately named Pasha and from 1943 this specific model entered in Cartier’s catalogues. The present Pasha reference 1991 emanates power and elegance characterized by its round yellow-gold case, the “Vendôme”-type lugs, the graduated unidirectional bezel and the iconic blue cabochon screw fixed to the case by a small chain. The silvered dial is decorated with quarter Arabic numerals and central square with minute track border and date at 4 o’clock. Very rare and somehow alternative, this Pasha is outstanding for personality and beauty.
