Innovative Cartier Dimensions

Cartier is one of the most prominent and recognized jewelers in the world today. From breathtaking diamond jewelry of the highest quality and clarity to premium leather goods, the name Cartier represents the highest level of quality and prestige.

The Cartier brand also holds a unsurmountable position in the world of fine timepieces. Cartier is the first brand to introduce a wristwatch. In 1904, Louis Cartier designed a wristwatch as a favor to pilot Alberto Santos Dumont, which he could wear on his wrist when flying. Pocket watches at the time were too cumbersome to handle when up in the air.CARTIER-W3108555-PO

In 1933, Cartier was commissioned by Pasha of Marrakech to create a timepiece suitable for swimming. The first Pasha wristwatch featured a protective locking cap on the crown that prevented water from entering the case and mechanical mechanism inside. Several years later, Cartier released the Pasha to the world and this innovative timepiece set the stage for water-resistant watch technology for years to come.

The Cartier Pasha is still in production today in updated models with larger, more strapping dimensions and a variety of different styles. You’ll find an excellent selection of Cartier Pasha watches for both men and women at luxury retailer TheWatchery.com.

The Cartier Pasha Automatic Chronograph for men is an excellent choice. This exemplary crafted men’s watch has a premium grade stainless steel case, highly polished to a mirror-bright patina. An exhibition skeleton caseback lets you see the intricate mechanical movement inside. The handsome black alligator strap closes with a deployment clasp featuring the signature Cartier buckle.

The protective crown cap is topped with the signature Cartier blue sapphire cabochon stone. The stationary bezel encircles the white dial with three subdials, blue sword hands and baton hour markers. Features include an automatic date calendar, small-second, 30-minute and 12-hour subdials.

Chronograph is 42mm in diameter, 12mm thick and is water-resistant to 30 meters or 100 feet.

Red Carpet Luxury…

The Academy Awards took place this past weekend and the film Birdman emerged as the big winner taking home four Oscars, including Best Picture, Best Director, Best Original Screenplay along with Best Cinematography. The Grand Budapest Hotel also came away with four Oscars as well, yet all were  in the technical categories. Meanwhile Eddie Radmayne, Julianne Moore, J.K. Simmons and Patricia Arquette took the top acting honors.

While the winners were heralded throughout the globe, the major discourse regarding the Academy Awards has been the fashions seen on the nominees, presenters, entertainers and those attending the awards ceremony.

From Moore’s beaded white Chanel Haute Couture gown by Karl Lagerfeld accessorized with Chopard earrings to fellow nominee Rosamund Pike’s Givenchy Haute Couture red gown accompanied by a Lorraine Schwartz necklace, the fashions and accessories worn at the ceremony have been the main focus of media attention in the past few days.BREITLING-AB011012-C783

Fortunately for Lady Gaga, her Sound of Music tribute during the show outshined the red patent leather gloves she wore to accompany her white Alaia gown on the red carpet, preceding the ceremony.

Actor John Travolta did not fare as well wearing an oversized gold neck chain instead of a traditional bow tie with his navy tuxedo.

At least the Breitling Chronomat Travolta wore at the Oscars earned him some notes of admiration. Ditto, the Cartier Pasha watch seen on presenter Jared Leto, which was received more favorably than the blue Givenchy tuxedo and white lace-up shoe ensemble he wore.
