I’ll be the first one to admit – the perfect fake Cartier Pasha was never a model that I was particularly interested in, despite my love for funky case designs. For whatever reason, its wide bezel, strange crown, and three-part lugs never spoke to me. It’s one of the reasons why I chose this very model for review – and boy, am I glad I did. In my short time with the salmon luxury replica Pasha de Cartier, I realised I had indeed judged a book by it’s cover, and was wrong.
Let’s start with the part you’re going to be looking at the most. The dial is an amalgam of wonderfully crisp geometric lines engraved into its salmon surface, separating it into different portions. Swiss made replica Cartier’s signature railroad minute track is tweaked a little, with dial engravings forming the tracks and the sleepers taking shape with lume-filled blocks interrupting the dashes. Does that mean the Pasha has a sector dial?
Furthermore, one of the cheap replica Pasha de Cartier UK signatures are the oversized Arabic numerals at the cardinal points. Their serifed typeface is a nod to the 1930s origins of the Pasha – I’m especially fond of the twirly ends of the 6, 9 and (1)2 numerals. The stubby sword handset is blued, another Cartier characteristic, though it does feel a little undersized – more on that (and that date window) shortly.
Despite the 41mm diameter, which would normally be enough of a detractor for me on paper, I had no issues wearing it on my 6.25-inch wrist. That’s largely thanks to the compact lugs that only span to 48mm, while the height is kept right around 10mm.
Despite these dimensions, it has to be said that this is a noticeable watch. Sure, it’s a large, pink-dialled aaa quality replica Cartier, but they’re usually a brand that deals in subtlety. My guess is that the wide, stepped, and polished bezel is the main culprit for this, as it was basically impossible not to catch a reflection. Same goes for photographing it. I just couldn’t avoid having myself or the camera in the shot. While the wide bezel is great for attracting attention, it also kept expressing its undying love for fingerprints, so a microfibre cloth is a must for any wristshot.
Flip the Swiss movement fake Cartier Pasha UK sideways, and it’s a completely different look. The front of the watch will have you thinking it’s this big, hulking thing, but in reality, it’s surprisingly svelte. The oversized crown protection device plays into this somewhat, as it ostentatiously protrudes from the case in every way imaginable. Add to that the almost luminescent nature of the synthetic spinel cabochon, and the fine horizontal brushing on the case sides will do little in terms of stealthiness.
When handling this super clone watch, I realised that I had never actually seen a pasha with its crown au naturel, if you will. A couple of swift turns of the crown cap’s fine threading, and there it was, topped by a tiny synthetic spinel. It’s positively teensy, though it wasn’t nearly as difficult to grip as I had imagined, owing to the nicely machined knurling. Try as I may, seeing the crown like this just looks a bit wrong – thankfully, screwing the cap back on brings back the Pasha’s recognisable lines instantly.
Finally, there’s the 1847 MC movement that powers the Pasha. It’s visible through the sapphire caseback, which is kind of a rarity for Cartier replica for sale UK. It’s a relatively handsome, if unspectacular movement, with heavily grained striping decorating the winding rotor and bridges. The baseplate is completely sand-blasted on this example. The 1847 is one of the main reasons for the Pasha’s slimness, measuring in at only 3.8mm in height despite the full winding rotor, and featuring some anti-magnetic componentry for an undisclosed amount of magnetic resistance. Swiss super clone Cartier are surprisingly coy when it comes to specs, not even disclosing the power reserve, which I understand is around 40 hours.
And then there’s the dial. I actually really appreciate that high quality fake Cartier chose this type of tone and finish, rather than going with the admittedly overplayed sunburst bronzy-pink that we’ve become accustomed to calling “salmon”. Even though I like the colour, I wish Cartier super clone Paypal UK went with applied numerals, as the small indices accompanying the printed ones just don’t provide as much three-dimensionality as a dial of this size needs in my opinion. And of course, there’s the date window. I concur to the practicality of one for an everyday watch that the Pasha is trying to be, but the awkward positioning tweaks my tourb, as Zach would say, just a tad too much. If nothing else, at least the colour is perfectly matched.
