This is a combination of photography from the launch Girard-Perregaux Hawk sports watch collection which took place over a period of a few days in Miami.
The Sea Hawk moniker has been around since the 1940s to designate high water-resistance models. The new collection is a redesign of the previous generation Sea Hawk, which came out in 2002. The watch maintains the 4 o’clock crown, uni-directional dive bezel, integrated crown guard, screwed caseback, helium escape valve, and a 1,000 meters water-resistance rating — like in the past — but with a modern aesthetic.
Along with the launch of the Sea Hawk, Girard-Perregaux also unveiled another new sports timepiece: the Chrono Hawk which is presented in a similarly shaped octagonal case also measuring 44 mm diameter, with flat chronograph pushers, a round satin-finish steel bezel, and an octagonal rubber ring.
Both watches are driven by GP automatic movements beating at 4Hz. The contemporary watches are generously sized at 44 mm x 17 mm and have contemporary angular styling that you’ll likely love or hate, depending on your taste preferences.
The dials of the Sea Hawk and Chrono Hawk feature prominent applied markers, oversized hands, along with lume for high legibility.
