  • Catalogue Essay

    Introduced in 2006, the Sea Hawk II Pro “Challenger of Record” Flying Tourbillon was made in a limited edition of 32 pieces, launched in commemoration of the Golden Gate Yacht Club’s participation in the 32nd America’s Cup competition.

    Embodying both traditional craftsmanship and modern horology, Girard-Perregaux incorporated a flying tourbillon escapement into a diver’s watch with a 1000m depth rating. To achieve this, the dial is encased in dense 18K pink gold, 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.

    Offered in excellent overall condition, the present diver’s watch is numbered 14th out of 32 pieces and is accompanied by its full set of 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.
