The Cartier Pasha WJ120251 is a luxuriously charming watch with a dangerously irresistible personality. The name of this prestigious watch, “Pasha”, is a historical Turkish word for a man of high rank. And what’s in a name? It’s in the bold design that pays homage to the round forms of yesteryear, a guilloche inner square, bezel set with round-cut diamonds, a respected legacy inherited from the historical Pasha model Cartier created during the 40s that harmoniously fuse function with form. Ah, Pasha WJ120251, cast off thy name, thy impeccable form, and precisely encrusted opulent diamonds for it all shall effortlessly gift thy wearer with the air of elegant sophistication but can only bring forth envy and hatred to thy.

The Finer Details: 

Cartier Pasha WJ12025, From A Different Angle

Such an Impeccable Form.

  • Extra Large Model
  • 18 White Gold Case with a 42mm diameter to 8.02mm thickness
  • Bezel Set with Round-Cut Diamonds
  • 18 White Gold Screw-Down Cover Decorated with a Diamond
  • Sapphire Crystal

The distinctive features of this handsome timepiece are the guilloche inner square, the grid, and the screwdown crown coverset. The design is minimalistic and boldly striking; the 6 and 12 o’clock and 3 and 9 o’clock division lines that intersect at the square give off the appearance of a reinterpreted artistic rendition of an hourglass shape. The watch meditates on the concept of time that filters through your fingertips ever so slowly everyday but reappears each new day allowing time and space for new milestones in your life, adventures, and second chances. Time is not confined, rather, it flows like a river.  A watch with a beautiful mind and body of its own, classy and bold—what a beautiful sight to take in and take with you everywhere you go.

The seasons and occasions cannot overcome the versatility of this vibrant timepiece. The creative combination for dressing up is boundless just like the beauty of this watch. However, you should wear this watch cautiously, because you’re going to have the spotlight on you every time you appear in public—It would seem like this watch does have its cons after all then. Actually its boldness might not suit those of you who want a more conservative watch. For men who prefer something more subtle, sportive, and simple, you should look elsewhere. For men who prefer something edgy, sophisticated, and swanky—this is it.

The Cartier Pasha WJ120251 retails for $44,100.00 excluding sales tax on the Cartier website. There are other variations of the Pasha Collection you should consider. For instance, please note that this is an extra large model. This model has an elegant and classy timeless look that makes it quite perfunctory to pair with any style of clothing. No, it will not deny its prestigious name nor its impeccable form.
