The new collection Hawk
The name of the collection “Hawk”, falcon, refer to the characteristics of elegance, subtlety, strength and safety of the raptor, the same qualities that have the two models Girard-Perregaux Sea Hawk and Hawk Chrono.

The new collection comes from an old Hawk watchmaking expertise and brings with it all the codes which the Maison is identified, reinterpreting them to keep up with the times. The case diameter of 44 mm stainless steel dictates the tone: athletic and dynamic, is home to the time within well-defined angles that echo the octagonal shape of the model graduate. The edges of the case middle finished by hand to hand firmly hold the bezel.
The leather or rubber of the latest generation, which fits perfectly with the case, and with a new safety buckle. The personality of the watches Sea Hawk and Hawk Chrono is also evident in the quadrant: the hour markers, signs and decoration in relief that the motif is inspired by the famous bridge Girard-Perregaux creates a clear three-dimensional effect.
