The Cartier Pasha Black Dial Seatimer Watch W31077U2 is a perfect accessory for the man who is sporty but respects the style of name-brand luxury watches.  Combining the amazing design and quality of Cartier, the watch provides both functionality and style that are difficult to find in a designer watch.

The striking contrast between the black dial and bracelet and the stainless steel case is the first thing that is noticeable about the watch design.  The unidirectional bezel is engraved with black numerals and baton minute and hour markers.  The crown features a “clou de Paris” shaped black ceramic motif and a screw-down safety mechanism.  Adding to the elegance of this watch is the black dial with white markings, indicating the 3, 6, 9, and 12 o’clock hours.  The Cartier name is clearly positioned under the 12 o’clock marker.  The dial is enhanced by luminescent hour and minute hands, making the watch functional even in the evenings or in the dark.

To provide added stability for the sporting gentleman, the bracelet is made of steel and covered in rubber.  This careful and thoughtful design ensures that the watch will not slide too much on the wrist.  The steel triple deployant clasp offers another safety feature, keeping the watch firm and in-place regardless of the activity.


Other features of the watch

  • Date window between 4 and 5 o’clock
  • Sapphire crystal scratch-resistant face covering
  • Triple security clasp closure
  • Band width: 14 mm
  • Case diameter:  40.5 mm
  • Cartier calibre automatic winding
  • Water resistant to 100 meters

There are two things that are possibly bothersome about the watch design.  First, the date window is askew, which detracts from the symmetry of the watch dial.  Secondly, there are only four hour numerals; the rest of the hour markers are batons.  This could cause slight pause when attempting to read the time, but wearers are sure to accommodate these slight issues for the beauty of the watch overall.

The Pasha Seatimer Large Watch retails at $7,450.  Many online retailers, including Amazon.com, advertise the watch for significantly less.  However, you could also buy the watch from Cartier.com or an authorized Cartier dealer.

If you like the look of the Seatimer but would like a few more functions, the Seatimer Chronograph W31088U2 may be more suited for your needs.  It looks almost exactly the same as the Seatimer Large, but is different in these ways:

  • Chronograph for more accurate timing
  • Case diameter 41.5 mm (extra large)
  • Retail price $9,950

In either case, the Pasha Seatimer Men’s Watch represents the height of luxury for the active gentleman.  With a name like Cartier, it’s hard to go wrong.
