Girard-Perregaux Mission of Mermaids Special Editions – Sea Hawk MoM Diving Watch & Small Chronograph MoM

Swiss luxury watch maker Girard-Perregaux is presenting this special edition designed in collaboration with Susan Rockefeller and named ‘Mission of Mermaids’ (MOM) upon Susan’s most recent documentary. Using the archetype of the mermaid, the 15-minute film is a poetic ode to the sea, as well as a plea for its protection. In 2013, Susan and David Rockefeller established the Protect What is Precious Initiative to make the world a more loving, peaceful and healthy place by protecting family, art and nature.

Girard-Perregaux Sea Hawk MoM
This model is a reminder of the Girard-Perregaux’s experience in the field of sport watches: in 1880 it began the first volume production of wristwatches, and in the 1940s it launched the first generation of Hawk.

This original Sea Hawk, exclusively designed in collaboration with Susan Rockefeller, is inspired by the green of the nature, which complements the mysterious mermaid representation on the case-back, embodying the wish for ocean protection.
