In 2009, Cartier introduced its first timepiece in which skeletonized bridges in the form of Roman numerals acted as the dial of the watch. This year Cartier takes this art to a new level with the limited edition Pasha de Cartier skeleton flying tourbillon. Find wallpaper and pricing inside.
The Pasha is one of Cartier’s design icons. In the past, the case and dial captured the eye first, but in this new interpretation, the movement stands front and center. The Calibre 9457 MC has a specially developed flying tourbillon escapement. For the first time, its bridges take the form of Arabic numerals, which have always been one of the distinctive design elements of the high quality replica Pasha de Cartier watch.
This model has a diameter of 42mm and a Geneva Seal movement where empty space contrasts with depth and textures created by hand-applied finishes such as beveled bridges, satin-brushed sides and circular-grained wheels. The stylized and engraved 3, 9 and 12 frame the flying tourbillon’s carriage at six o’clock. The movement is driven by a skeletonized barrel with visible mainspring.
Produced in a limited edition of 100 timepieces priced at approximately $129,000, this new interpretation of the skeleton classic replica watch marks the Pasha’s official entry into the Cartier Fine Watchmaking Collection.
