Girard-Perregaux Sea Hawk Ceramic

The Sea Hawk Collection from Girard-Perregaux welcomes a new Sea Hawk model in ceramic. Water resistant to 300 meters, this timepiece has a unidirectional anticlockwise rotating bezel for calculating diving times. A series of tests to demonstrate its capacity to stand up to pressure at a depth of 300 meters, have guaranteed its water resistance in accordance with the very strict ISO 6425 standard.

An exceptional high-tech material, unchanging, hypoallergenic and heat-reflecting, the ceramic used by Girard-Perregaux is characterized by the extremely fine zirconium oxide powder it contains. An infinitesimal dimension makes it possible to achieve a hardness of 1400 HV on the Vickers scale – as opposed to 180 HV for stainless steel, a very low porosity. Extremely scratch-resistant, this ceramic has a smooth velvety look. Their inert character renders ceramics harmless for people and for the environment.

Black and angular, the 44 mm diameter cases have an astonishing shine and offer a new take on the Laureato octagon by modernizing its angles. The dials offer perfect readability, playing with the reliefs, luminescent touches and layout of the displays against a decor inspired by the shape of the Girard-Perregaux Bridge. In the background, the mechanism pulses to the rhythm of the expertise that is endlessly perfected by the master watchmakers of the Manufacture’s workshops.

The construction of its case makes it highly shock-resistant, as does its crown, which is placed at 4 o’clock for greater comfort, reinforced by a crown guard that is perfectly integrated with the case. Black, stamped with a motif recalling the emblematic Girard-Perregaux Bridge, its dial is multi-layered. The hour markers and the hands are enhanced with luminescent material. Certain elements are picked out in red, such as the hands of the power reserve indicator and the small second. The date appears at 1:30 for a perfectly balanced display.
