Now let’s take a quick look at Cartier’s new W&W2021.
Pasha de Cartier 41 mm Chronograph
Pasha de Cartier is not as popular as Cartier Tank or Santos, its unique design is something you love or hate, just like that. With three different sizes of 35, 38, and 41 mm and a considerable number of models in stainless steel, yellow gold, rose gold, and white gold, solid and skeletonized dials, smooth, diving, and diamond bezels, there is a lot to choose from.
Now Cartier has decided to add to its Pasha collection the first two chronographs, one in stainless steel and the other in yellow gold, both with a diver’s frame (it is crazy to think that someone in their right mind will dive with a Pasha), a 30-minute counter at 3 o’clock, a 12-hours counter at 9 o’clock, a small-seconds at 6 o’clock and date opening at 4 ½ hours, blue hands, crown and chronograph pushers inlaid with blue cabochon. Inside it operates an automatic movement that offers up to 47 hours of power reserve. The stainless steel version comes with a steel bracelet and an extra leather strap, while the gold variant comes with two leather straps.
Cartier Tank Must
Born in the 80s in the middle of the “quartz crisis”, the Tank Must was made to be simple, in no precious metal just in silver and with a golden cover, without complications, with a clean dial, a reliable quartz movement, and an affordable price.
Today Cartier brings the Tank Must back, in a stainless steel case, an even cleaner dial where the old inscriptions “Must” and “C” no longer have a place and with an internal quartz movement (as it could not fail to be). These new Must are offered in 3 variants, in RGB colors (red, green, and blue), and come with a crocodile leather strap in the same color as the dial.
Ballon Bleu de Cartier 40 mm
The Cartier Ballon collection is offered in a wide range of sizes (ten so far) and more than a hundred models, Cartier has now decided to introduce several new variants to the collection in a new size, 40 mm, and now with an internal automatic movement.
This new size is offered in stainless steel or rose gold, both with a silver dial and with the option of a blue dial for the stainless steel variant and a dark gray dial for the rose gold variant. Inside, the In-house automatic movement caliber 1847 MC operates, offering up to 40 hours of power reserve. Both the steel variant and the gold variant come with an option of a steel/rose gold bracelet or leather strap.
Cloche de Cartier
The Cartier Cloche is another novelty of the Cartier Privé Collection, a watch that debuted in 1920 and reappeared in the 90s, and also in 2007, but as limited editions. Its two main features are the bell-shaped case, it is no coincidence that Cloche means bell, and the other unique feature is its 90 degrees inclined dial, which in addition to allowing a perfect reading on the wrist without having to rotate the arm still allows when it is not on the wrist to function as a table clock thanks to its bell shape that allows it to rest on a flat base.
The new Cartier Cloche comes in 6 variants, in gold, rose gold, and white gold, with a black sunburst or gold dial, as well as three skeletonized variants, one with diamonds set bezel. Inside, the manual movement Caliber 1917 MC operates for solid dials and Caliber 9626 for skeletonized models. All variants are offered with a leather strap.
Cartier Solar Beat Tank Must
It is the first sustainable watch in the Cartier collections. This watch comes with a solar quartz movement and a non-animal leather strap. In addition to the fact that solar movements are not an innovation, with almost half a century of life, the design of this watch is quite interesting, since all the energy it needs comes from the Roman numeral photovoltaic panels on the dial. The watch comes in a stainless steel case in two different sizes, 33 mm x 25.5 mm and 29.5 mm x 22 mm, white dial with black Roman numerals, blue hands that match the crown jewel, and three options of straps in black, blue, and light green.
