Girard Perregaux adds Chrono Pink Gold to its Hawk Collection
The new Girard Perregaux Chrono Hawk Pink Gold boasts a powerful, technical chronograph with a pink gold case, and is reinforced with ceramic and rubber components.
The angular, sculptural cases that characterize the timepieces in the Hawk collection have forged the reputation of this sporty and contemporary line. The case which is both luxurious and innovative presents a polychrome face in which the intensity of the dark components heightens the warmth of the gold. In the same spirit it embraces the novel combinations, with the high-tech rubber strapped encased with alligator.
The case is made up of 62 different parts and demands a high degree of skill to produce. With a frame fashioned from satin-finished pink gold and measuring 44 mm in diameter, it serves as the basic structure that incorporates the other parts,
The dial of the Chrono Hawk Pink Gold displays a motif inspired by the shape of the famous Girard-Perregaux Tourbillon Bridges. It is encircled by a three-dimensional flange graduated with the minutes scale and showcases the indexes striped with bands of luminescent material to enable night reading. The small seconds are viewed on a subdial at 3 o’clock, while the chronograph functions are displayed via a central direct-drive seconds hand and a subdial at 9 o’clock for the minutes. An aperture at 6 o’clock shows the date.
The Chrono Hawk Pink Gold houses a GP03300 self-winding Manufacture movement with 431 components. Its arrow-shaped oscillating weight and the decorative finishes on the movement can be admired through a sapphire crystal case-back, which is itself engraved and secured with screws. This latest version of the Hawk is water-resistant to a depth of 100 meters and has a strap with a folding buckle.
