Girard-Perregaux Chrono Hawk Hollywoodland


Girard-Perregaux Chrono Hawk HollywoodlandGirard-Perregaux is a big supporter of the motion picture arts: already a partner in the prestigious Festival Lumière, the brand also announced last year that it will be exclusive timekeeper and founding supporter of the new Academy Museum of Motion Pictures. Now, a new timepiece that celebrates the brand’s movie-biz partnerships, the Chrono Hawk Hollywoodland, is ready for its closeup.

The Girard-Perregaux Chrono Hawk Hollywoodland stands out from other models in the recently revamped Hawk collection, with its black ceramic case and rose-gold bezel. The case, which is 44 mm in diameter and water-resistant to 100 meters, features alternating matte and gloss finishes that accentuate its familiar angles and curves.

The dial offers the illusion of depth, with a worked flange and a relief pattern on the dial that echoes the shape of Girard-Perregaux’s famous Golden Bridge. The indices and hands are luminescent (“all the better to see in a dark cinema,” says the press release).

The movement, which is visible through a sapphire caseback secured by six screws, is Girard-Perregaux’s manufacture caliber GP03300, which powers the hours, minutes, small seconds (at 3 o’clock), date (in a window at 6 o’clock) and chronograph functions. The self-winding movement has a frequency of 28,800 vph and a power reserve of 46 hours.

The black strap, like the case, is also a combination of materials: technological rubber at the base, coated with black alligator leather. It has a folding buckle in titanium PVD with a ceramic cover. The U.S. retail price of the Girard-Perregaux Chrono Hawk Hollywoodland is $21,400. (Click the photos for larger images.)

    GP is exploring news horizons, loosing part of its traditional and ultra-classic designs. I am not sure if this is a good commercial strategy, because in this field the competition is rather severe and everybody is quite similar.

    Girard-Perregaux Chrono Hawk Hollywoodland looks like a fantastic watch and though it costs more than $20,000, I think the watch would be quite popular among the watch aficionados especially for the fans of Girard-Perregaux!

    Thank you for the fine report though I wish it was a bit more detailed with some more pictures!
