A lot of times it is very clear when a watch is designed to be worn by men and when it was designed for women. However, the distinction isn’t so clear when it comes to the Cartier Paha C Steel W31074M7. Technically, this is a watch made to be worn by men. It has a larger solid, round, brushed and polished stainless steel case and bracelet. However, the overall design exudes an elegance and luxury that will compliment a wearer of any gender.

The aspect of luxe this watch exudes can be attributed in part to the white dial adorned with stylized Arabic numeral hour markers at 12, 3, 6, and 9. The additional hours are indicated with lines angling into the center of the watch from the stationary bezel to the square second index. The hour, minute, and second hands are diamond shaped, luminous, and made of blue steel, which add an interesting splash of color. There is a date window between the fourth and fifth hours, making this watch a figure of both utility and style. Even the circular crown of this timepiece is loaded with details, being made of stainless steel and secured with a screw-down safety.

Additional features of the Cartier Pasha C Stainless Steel W31074M7 include:
• Swiss Made Cartier Calibre 049 automatic movement
• Water resistance to 330 feet
• Scratch resistant sapphire crystal window
• Stainless steel deployment clasp

Despite the fact that this watch is undoubtedly fashionable and luxurious, there are a few things to take into consideration before you make your purchase. For one, this is probably not a watch that could be worn every day. It’s definitely distinctive, but also dressy, so it may look odd if you were to wear it camping, for example. That said, because it’s an automatic watch that may not be suited for day-to-day wear, it would be worth your while to purchase a winding box, such that when you’re not wearing this watch, it will still keep time.

In short, the Cartier Pasha C Steel W31074M7 is a watch that is definitely not thin and subtle. It makes a statement. And if you like what it’s saying, I would encourage you to look at the many watches in the Pasha C Steel line. They all come in the same basic shape, but there’s quite a range of variation in the details of the dial and the capstone on the crown. They all fall in relatively the same price range, $5,000-$7,000, but for that kind of money it’s important to get a timepiece you love down to every last detail.
