Girard-Perregaux SEA Hawk [colored for the sea]

By TLex With its vivid cobalt blue and coral orange hues, chosen for its dial, hands and unidirectional divers bezel - this latest variant of the Sea Hawk is possibly the most evocative of the ocean that we've seen since its UPDATE in 2012.

The cobalt blue of the its dial and rubber divers strap give it a distinctly nautical aesthetic, while its minute and second hands and the power reserve indicator that are highlighted in the same shade of orange that is used on the bezel's dive-time scale, further its intent as a diving instrument.

Its multei-facetted brushed finished case has been manufactured from Stainless steel. Its features: a screw-down black rubber crown (4 o'clock) that has been carefully positioned into its elongated integrated crown guard, providing protection from any unwanted knocks.

The case has a diameter of 44mm and a thickness of 17.1mm. It is water-resistant up to a depth of 1000 meters meeting the requirements ISO 6425 for diving watches. Further divers features include: a Helium escape valve ensuring that the air pressure between the watch's interior and exterior is rebalanced on return from deep-sea diving expeditions.

Its raised honeycomb dial features 3D hour markers and large white sword hands that have been coated with a lume. Then there’s the SH’s characteristic date placement at 2 o'clock deeply recessed into the dial and with beautifully polished sides, a power reserve indicator is at 6 o'clock and a sub-seconds counter is at 10 o'clock.

The Sea Hawk is powered by an in-house GP03300-0074 self-winding mechanical movement with: hour, minute, second, and date functions plus a certified 46-hour power reserve indicator with a frequency of 28,800 vibrations per hour, or 4 Hz. It is presented on either a rubber divers strap or on the new HAWK steel bracelet.
