Miami, Florida—Reported by D.J. Larsen for Elite Traveler, the private jet lifestyle magazine
For some, a timepiece is used to do exactly that: tell time. But for watch aficionados, horology is a passion that stands for much more than the just position of the sun in the sky. Those individuals, those who know quality, also know Girard-Perregaux and its 221 year-old heritage of crafting time elegantly.
Adding an athletic balance to their usual elegance-first approach, Girard-Perregaux has unveiled their new sports line, The Hawk Collection, that will combine modern design with a classic feel in two brand new watches to choose from: The Sea Hawk diver watch and the Chrono Hawk.
With such an intimidating name, The Hawk Collection shows no fear in its attempt to top the luxe horology heap. The cutting edge Sea Hawk is water-resistant to depths up to 3280 feet. The Sea Hawk is developed specifically to withstand the rigors of deep scuba diving, incorporating a helium valve for decompression and an anti-clockwise turning bezel for dive-time calculations.
While the Sea Hawk has the daunting task of conquering the challenges of deep sea diving, The Chrono Hawk’s imposing versatility is unmatched. Designed to tackle the world’s most physically demanding situations, the Chrono Hawk’s stainless steel case and leather straps represent rugged luxury at its finest. In addition, Girard-Perregaux is unveiling the FOReverglades Hawk limited edition for Art Week in Miami’s exhibit at the city’s iconic Freedom Tower. All in all, the surest way to lose track of time is by not taking advantage of Girard-Perregaux’s new sports collection.
