    The classic Pasha watch was first introduced in 1932 at the request of the Sultan of Marrakech named Pasha. It is the first waterproof timepiece from Cartier to keep up with the ruler’s active lifestyle, not only could it be worn for daily swims, but is also elegant enough for royal duties. Cartier also has had a long history of creating iconic animal-themed jewellery and watches for royalty and celebrities. One of the most famous of all animal motifs – and a lasting symbol of the house of Cartier — is the panther. The present wristwatch combines two of Cartier’s most iconic designs was released in a limited series of 20 pieces and the current example is No.1.

    卡地亞於1932年應馬拉喀什蘇丹帕夏(Pasha)的要求,為他度身設計了品牌第一隻防水的腕錶,並以他命名。蘇丹不但可以每天運動游泳時佩戴Pasha,在平時執行皇室要務時佩戴亦相單體面,款式可謂動靜皆宜。卡地亞一直以來都喜以動物的主題為名人及皇室人員訂製鐘錶,當中以美洲豹最為有標誌性,早已成為品牌一代經典。這隻錶盤鑲滿鑽石的腕錶集Pasha及美洲豹兩個重要的設計於一身,而且在全球限量二十隻中編號排行第一,尤其珍貴。

    With the Constitution of 1848 came a new standard for luxury in France. Founded one year prior by Louis-Francois Cartier, the house of Cartier was one of the first to use platinum in jewelry making. This incredibly expensive material became the stepping-stone for Cartier to experiment in form, mechanisms and attitude. It helped men move from pocket watches to wristwatches, effectively making the watch much more functional and prominent in a man's overall wardrobe.

    Cartier did not only touch on functionality. Inspired by a commissioned painting by George Barbier featuring a black panther at the feet of an elegantly bejeweled woman, Cartier began incorporating wild animals in his designs—most notably, Cartier Panthère rings, bangle bracelets and watches. Yet it wasn't until the late 1960s that the house of Cartier debuted their iconic yellow and rose gold LOVE collection, which includes the famous bracelet that only a special screwdriver can open.
