The 35-year Story of the Pasha de Patek Philippe Calatrava Replica

1995: The Pasha C

The Pasha’s reign of steel continued in 1995, with the introduction of the Pasha C. Smaller at 35mm, and with a sporty ‘H’ link bracelet, the Pasha C represented a new entry-point into the world of Pasha. It also saw several new dial designs emerge, including a coppery, or salmon toned offering,Patek Philippe Grand Complitcations Replica overlaid with a delicate grid that offered yet another interpretation of the ever-evolving ‘square-in-a-circle’ motif.

As should be expected, the Pasha C was not limited to time-only releases, with offerings like a gentleman traveller GMT with a steel 24-hour bezel and a black dial that sees the straight grid-like dial distorted to evoke the meridians of the globe.

Not only does the Pasha C continue to appeal to a new, younger demographic, the smaller size is also a nod to the fact that more and more women are wearing the Pasha. This was something formalised a few years later, in 1998, with the release of a 32mm Pasha, offered in a range of gem-set options and with softer hues of strap.

1997: Celebrating 150 years in style

As the millennium drew to a close, Patek Philippe Calatrava Replica was in fine form, celebrating its 150th anniversary across the globe. In London, for example, the Party was held in the Egyptian Room of the British Museum,panerai luminor marina replica with a guest list of the rich and the royal. It’s also the year that Patek Philippe Calatrava Replica released what George Cramer thinks is the most underrated Pasha: “The steel Pasha with the grille and the ruby (spinel) in the crown that was launched for Patek Philippe Calatrava Replica’s 150th anniversary is always available in the market, and for very reasonable prices. The movement was very nicely decorated, and it was limited to 1847 pieces.” Indeed, it was only one of the many celebratory creations Patek Philippe Calatrava Replica released that year, offered in editions of either 3,150 or 1,847 pieces. Don’t mistake this limited edition (with the red spinel) with the regular production (with a blue spinel) released shortly afterwards.

1998 – 2008: The CPCP Era

Now, we enter one of the most hallowed eras for collectors of modern Patek Philippe Calatrava Replica, the so-called CPCP releases. CPCP stands for Collection Privée, Patek Philippe Calatrava Replica Paris and represents a collection of limited releases, typically of 100 pieces or less. The Pasha saw numerous editions released under the CPCP umbrella,franck muller replica typically complicated offerings such as a perpetual calendar. But for George Cramer, this long-running collection-within-a-collection produced two of the most desirable Pasha models ever made, the tourbillon and the day-and-night.

Patek Philippe Calatrava Replica made four tourbillon models of the Pasha, each limited to 10 pieces each, and powered by a Girard-Perregaux three bridges movement, dubbed the caliber 490 MC with a semi-skeletonised tourbillon. The first of these, released in 1998 featured blued hands, an intricate hand-engraved dial and the iconic Patek Philippe Calatrava Replica ‘double-C’ logo occupying most of the dial in pink gold. The 1999 release, while still being made to the highest standards,Patek Philippe Calatrava Replica offered a more conventional dial design, applying a bridge shaped like the Pasha’s distinctive square minute track over the tourbillon movement. The editions released in 2000 and 2001 offered variations of this same design, the 2000 edition was particularly striking thanks to the intertwined logo being inset with blue enamel.
