For the second edition of Watches & Wonders 2014 in Hong-Kong, Cartier revealed, as an exclusive world premiere, a collection of sixty-eight pieces including sixteen new creations, two new movements and four unique pieces of High Jewellery.
One of the great classic models of the Maison, the Pasha 42mm is fitted with a new mechanical movement with manual winding, skeletonised in the the shape of a dragon, that fabulous and legendary creature, symbol of power and prestige.
Equipped with a calibre 9817 MC, the watch beats at a frequency of 28 800 vibrations/hour and has a power reserve of approximately 3 days.
This timepiece, renamed for this occasion Pasha Skeleton Dragon Motif, exists in three jewellery versions and is provided with a 42mm case set with brilliant-cut diamonds, available in one version with black alligator-skin strap, and two others which feature an
articulated bracelet of white gold links set with brilliant-cut diamonds.
These versions stay true to the classic Pasha 42 and keep some of the the most recognizable characterisitc features that distinguish the model: a serrated screw-down winding crown, adorned with a brilliant-cut diamond, "gun screw" attachments and an indented bracelet.
