The Pasha Collection by Cartier is known for its unique and stylish round face pieces, and the Cartier Pasha Tourbillon Chronograph Watch W3030013 is no exception. This piece makes its mark with a splash of color and a unique face.

This limited edition timepiece comes with the following features:

  • Tourbillon and chronograph complications
  • Power reserve of 8 days
  • 18 karat white gold case, crown, and buckle
  • Blue steel hands
  • Black alligator-skin leather strap
  • Water resistant up to 30 meters (100 feet)

This watch has a very different look from the norm. Its only numeral is 12; the rest of the o’clock positions are marked with spokes coming from the center of the watch-face. Two sub-dials sit on the three o’clock and six o’clock positions, while the bright blue steel hands give this otherwise monochromatic piece some color. The smooth alligator-skin leather strap lends an element of comfort to the watch, while the 18 karats of white gold remind you that this is Cartier. The power reserve and water-resistant features are extras that add to the appeal of the watch.

The lack of numbers and funky design could be a deterrent for buyers looking for a watch that is classic and easy to read. The sub-dials make the face of the piece look unique but could also be distracting for a person with bad eyesight. For someone looking for a watch that is slightly easier to read, the Cartier Pasha Flying Tourbillon Watch W3030021 has a similar design to the featured model, with the addition of numerals in the 3 o’clock and 9 o’clock positions and only one sub-dial at the 6 o’clock position. All the items in the Pasha  Collection share the same metal spokes, the Pasha Flying Tourbillon Watch has a more traditional look and may be more appropriate for buyers with concerns regarding the look of the Pasha Tourbillon Chronograph Watch.

Cartier does not list a price for this piece on either their American or international websites, but it is a limited edition, with only 50 models produced. This Pasha Collection is no doubt an expensive investment, but it could be worth it to be the owner of a limited edition Cartier piece that utilizes color and comfort to be unique.
