Celebrate excellence in craftsmanship with the limited edition Cartier Pasha Flying Tourbillon Skeleton Watch W3030021. Its superior quality is prominently displayed, making this an ideal watch for horological aficionados or anyone who appreciates truly fine watchmaking.
There are so many features that make the Pasha Flying Tourbillon Skeleton a distinctive timepiece. Set in a 42 mm, 18-carat white gold case, the watch’s skeleton movement captures the attention that is usually bestowed upon dials and cases. And with the exceptional degree of craftsmanship exhibited in this watch, the movement should rightly be the main attraction. The Tourbillon complication in the watch ensures greater accuracy in timekeeping, countering the effect of gravity that can interfere with a watch’s precision. Another- and actually the most important- indication of quality in this timepiece is the Geneva Seal. A symbol of superior quality and perfection, the Geneva Seal certification ensures that the movement has met high standards and is recognized for its excellence in quality.
Visually, Cartier has created a striking display. In addition to highlighting the masterful movement, the skeletonized bridges create an open, light watch that perfectly balances space and substance. Pasha models forego the Roman numerals typically used by Cartier for large, stylish Arabic numerals that—though less iconic—are still quite distinctive. Characteristic Cartier style is still present in the blued-steel hands, black alligator-skin strap and canteen crown set with a sapphire cabochon.

There is no question that the Cartier Pasha Flying Tourbillon Skeleton watch represents high-end luxury and the highest quality in manufacturing. With only 100 timepieces made, you know that you’re purchasing a special, rare watch that everyone will admire.
At $114,000, this wristwatch may not be within a lot of people’s price range. If the exclusivity and mechanics of the watch aren’t particularly intriguing, it might be a better decision to purchase a different Pasha model. The cases and crowns will be similarly designed, and the prices might agree with more wallets.
This is a beautifully designed timepiece that represents the finest of watch-making traditions. If you value superior quality and want your timepiece to literally symbolize perfection, the Cartier Pasha Flying Tourbillon Skeleton Watch W3030021 (available here) is definitely the right choice.
