Girard-Perregaux Sea Hawk Pro 1000m "Big Blue" - Get Ready for Most Extreme Adventures

Aug 09, 2012
Girard-Perregaux is pleased to present its Sea Hawk Pro 1000m “Big Blue” limited edition watch. The timepiece has been created to support environmental conservationists, Susan and David Rockefeller, Jr. who work at protecting the world’s oceans.

The new Girard-Perregaux watch has been created as a genuine diving instrument. The 44mm steel case of the watch has been developed and manufactured independently in-house. It is built with a unidirectional rotating bezel that allows comfortable calculating of dive times. One more important feature is the watch’s helium valve responsible for decompressing the timepiece after deep dives. The case construction also incorporates a screw-down crown and case-back. It boasts 1,000-meter water-resistance.

The novelty is animated by an automatic mechanical movement - Girard-Perregaux GP033R0. The 27-jewel mechanism, beating at a frequency of 28,800 vph, provides a power reserve of 46 hours. It offers the following functions - hours, minutes, small seconds, power reserve indicator, and date.

The deep blue dial pleases the glance by its clarity. The 6 o’clock sub-dial is for the power-reserve indication. It demonstrates a map of the world symbolizing the oceans. The small seconds sub-dial is positioned at 11 o’clock, while the date window is found at 1 o’clock.

The case-back reveals an engraving of the motto, Protect What is Precious, hinting at the Rockefellers’ ocean conservation work as well as to the brand’s commitment to preserving classical watchmaking.

The Girard-Perregaux Sea Hawk Pro 1000m “Big Blue” watch is secured to the wrist on a rubber strap, created in the blue color finely matching the dial and fitted with a steel safety folding clasp.

The timepiece will be limited to just 15 pieces available at the price of $ 10,900. The brand will donate part of the proceeds from its sales to support the Rockefellers’ conservation efforts.
