While Patek Philippe invented the wrist-watch in 1868, it was traditionally worn by women. It was Louis Cartier who started the trend for men’s wrist-watches in 1904.

Later during soviet times production moved to watches. The factory made both ZIM and Pobeda watches. While the watch is currently just a concept watch, it indicates the future of watch-making, and will be launched at the upcoming Salon International de Haute Horlogerie in Geneva.
Here we have the replica Cartier Pasha Chronograph in 42mm and its replica so that we can clearly see the differences between them. There are three main differences between these two watches, but it’s nothing extremely noticeable.
The first noticeable difference is on the crown; the crown on both watches features a beautiful blue jewel but it seems that the design on the replica is a bit different as the jewel is less pointy than the jewel on the original watch, which is quite flat.
