Cartiers regal history dates back to 1847 when it was founded in Paris by Louis-Fran?ois Cartier. The brands famous clientele consists of royal courts and celebrities, including the Pasha of Marrakech who commissioned a watch suitable for swimming in 1933 - ushering in the birth of Cartier Pasha collection. Originally sporting a protective grid, the newer models are as diverse as they come, ranging in dimension from a petite 27mm to a modest 42.5mm. The 18kt gold or steel case is either plain or embellished with precious stones. Men and women revel in the gorgeously designed Cartier Pasha with its diamond shaped hands and Arabic numerals. Remarkable in both form and function, the Cartier Pasha may show only the basic time and date or a multitude of complications such as GMT, power reserve, chronograph, alarm, moon phase, tourbillon, and perpetual calendar.
