Girard-Perregaux Chrono Hawk Only Watch

High technology at the service of the research for Duchenne muscular dystrophy

Sporty. Elegant. Modern. The Chrono Hawk Only Watch leaves nothing to chance, neither the design of its case, which associates bold edges and a round bezel, nor its face, which gives prominence to the measurement of short times. Its well-tested reliability and its exceptional finish are a testimony to fine craftsmanship.

Contemporary and bold, the style plays with ceramic and palladium. Deep black and silvery-white and yet perfectly functional, the elements of the case blend into one another, while keeping their individual strengths to end up accentuating the watch’s architecture.

The well-balanced dial showcases the time data. Two red counters face each other in perfect symmetry at 9 and 3 o’clock, while the date is placed at 6 o’clock. The applied hour markers and the hour and minute hands are lit with luminescent material. This classic layout is complemented with a motif inspired by the famous Girard-Perregaux Bridge.

The character of the Chrono Hawk Only Watch is finally emphasized by the audacious rubber strap coated with a genuine alligator leather.

Visible through the case’s sapphire back, the caliber GP03300, a self-winding mechanical movement, drives this very high performance unique piece.
