The New Girard-Perregaux Sea Hawk Will Eat Your Young

Girard-Perregaux may be one of the oldest watch companies, dating back to 1791, but their heritage doesn't keep them tied down in the past. The Swiss watchmakers just released a new Sea Hawk, updating the model with some bright colors.

This timepiece is a through-and-through dive watch, sporting a decently sized 44 millimeter case, and measures up to the ISO 6425 water resistant standard, guaranteed to 1,000 meters, thanks to a helium escape valve. The dial has some cool touches including a power reserve indicator — the Sea Hawk can hold 46 hours on its in-house movement — a honeycomb texture, and enough lume to be seen when it's deep.

Times have sure changed!
