Girard-Perregaux Launches The Chrono Hawk Hollywoodland

By Chris Boyle

Girard-Perregaux Hollywoodland 2

Today Girard-Perregaux announced the launch of a special edition of the Hawk Collection: The Chrono Hawk Hollywoodland.

This unique timepiece highlights once again Girard-Perregaux’s passion for the cinema, and its commitment to celebrating movies.

The all-new Chrono Hawk Hollywoodland takes centre stage clad in gleaming gold and black ceramic case and bezel.

The watchmakers pay playful homage to Hollywood’s golden era with a keen eye toward the materials they used, with alternating matte and gloss finishes accentuating the relief carving of the case.

The chronograph functions are traditional but its performance is pervasive, thanks to the mechanical,self-winding GP03300 manufactured calibre, whose visible oscillating weight by the sapphire recalls the watchmaker’s identity codes.

The dial works mightily to increase the depth of field. Luminescent keys (all the better to see in a dark cinema, if you must), a worked flange, counters and strikes carved in relief fit together, inspired by the shape of the bridge.

The all-new Chrono Hawk Hollywoodland, of course, was designed in tribute to Hollywood: a dream of a watch paying tribute to the industry that makes dreams spring vividly to life.

This timepiece also highlights the brand’s pledge to celebrate the movie industry. In 2012, Girard-Perregaux announced it would be the Exclusive Timekeeper and a Founding Supporter of the new Academy Museum of Motion Pictures, to be located in Los Angeles.
