One of the really new Pasha watches from Cartier for 2022 is the fun Cartier Pasha Moon Phases Replica. The dress watch features a new 41mm wide Pasha case with a smooth bezel (as opposed to a rotating bezel) and an elegant dial with a moon phase display complication. Cartier presents the Pasha Moon Phases in two models: the steel reference CRWSPA0030 and the 18k rose gold reference CRWGPA0026.
Watches with a moon phase complication are popular not because the indicator is particularly useful to most people, but because the complication has a high emotional value and is also beautiful to look at. Combine that with the fact that the Cheap Cartier Replica watch industry knows a lot about how to make moon phase complications, and you can begin to see why these watches are so popular. This tiny celestial complication has always captured the imagination.
Note that the Pasha Moon Phases Replica Watch is not the only watch in the current Pasha collection with moon phases. There is also an odder Cartier Pasha model, model CRWGPA0022, in a 38mm wide 18k yellow gold case. It has a rotating diver-style bezel and a mechanical movement with a full calendar (date, day of the week and month) and a moon phase indicator below the 12 o’clock position. This looks a lot like a retro model and takes us back to the 1990s.
Powering the watch is the Cartier 1904-LU MC movement, the brand’s standard 4Hz, two-day power reserve self-winding moonphase module. The dial indicates the time in hours and minutes only (no seconds) and features a stylized moon phase display above the dial at 6 o’clock. When it comes to dials, Cartier Replica puts a lot of emphasis on decorativeness in textured dials, the use of color, and the filling of the overall visual space, something that no other Pasha model can do. So from a dial symmetry and design standpoint, I think Cartier has done a good job of that. I also like the very clear blue hands and matching hour markers.
At 41mm wide, the Pasha Moon Phases is quite a large watch, making it a very modern dress watch in that regard. I like it, but some people seem to only like smaller dress watches. Never mind – Cartier covers these people too. The 41mm-wide 1:1 Replica Watches case is otherwise comfortable and can be seen. This is a very emotional watch, so being “discreet” on the wrist is not part of its business mission.
Part of the new Cartier Pasha Quality Replica Watches case includes the “QuickSwitch” tool-free strap release system. It works so well that Cartier allows you to take advantage of this feature by including a blue and grey alligator strap on every watch. The 41mm wide Pasha steel case comes with a metal bracelet, so if you really like the look, I’m sure if you want to pair it with a watch like the Pasha Moon Phases.
