  • Catalogue Essay

    In 2006, Girard-Perregaux introduced this Sea Hawk II Pro “Challenger of Record” Flying Tourbillon in platinum to commemorate the Golden Gate Yacht Club’s entry into in the 32nd America’s Cup in 2007, represented by the BMW Oracle Racing team.

    Combining both classical craftsmanship and modern watchmaking, the manufacturer fitted a flying tourbillon escapement into this diver’s watch with a 1000m depth rating. To achieve this, a thick platinum case was chosen to protect the timepiece from the high pressures of the deep seas. Another clever feature is the two helium gas escape valves that are attached to each side of the case band.

    Presented in excellent overall condition, the current manual winding diver’s watch is numbered 10th out of 32 pieces only and is complete with its original accessories.

  • Artist Biography

    Girard Perregaux

    Swiss • 1791

    Celebrating its 225th anniversary in 2016, the company earned its fame as the first vertically integrated Swiss watchmaking company, manufacturing high-grade movements, cases and dials within its premises. Particularly noteworthy are the brand's three-gold-bridge tourbillon pocket watches built by Constant Girard beginning in 1867 — considered amongst the most beautiful movement architectures ever made. An active participant in Switzerland's observatory chronometry competitions, the brand won so many precision awards that they were excluded from competing in 1901.

    Key models include nineteenth and twentieth century pocket watches with three gold bridges, modern tourbillon wristwatches with three gold bridges, minute repeating pocket and wristwatches, as well as sport watches such as the Laureato and Sea Hawk.
