Girard-Perregaux Sea Hawk II Pro

The Deep Seas

The Watch Quote™ - May 20th, 2005


SEA HAWK II Pro : Titanium case, diameter 44mm, sapphire crystal 4.85mm thick with winding crown at 4 o’clock.

It goes without saying, we were very curious to find out more about the super sportive watch when the renowned brand presented the completely new SEA HAWK II Pro in pre-première in 2004. Now Girard-Perrégaux has given us the opportunity to test this very exclusive timepiece in our professional capacity.

Girard-Perregaux Sea Hawk II Pro under the magnifying glass


Created like an aqualung


Built to be water resistant to 3,000 meters, the Sea Hawk II Pro includes all the cutting edge techniques developed by the brand.



“Never do anything without advice”


The case back of the watch is struck with a twisting porpoise on a trident anchor. This symbol is associated with a patent issued to Girard-Perregaux in 1898 and is associated to the motto: “Never do anything without advice”.

Savoir-faire and technology



A true diver’s tool, the Sea Hawk II PRO is a very sophisticated evolution of the sporting Sea Hawk line brought out in 2002. The case, in satin finish titanium, is remarkable for its robustness and weight, the two lateral decompression valves, the thickness of the case-back and the sapphire crystal (4.85mm), that enable the watch to be submerged to a depth of 3,000 meters.

The dial provides exceptional legibility.



The clasp of the rubber bracelet has a safety catch and rapid extension system.

On the wrist


A watch destined for professional use, an instrument ready to follow you in all your adventures (the real ones). An object of brute force and out of the ordinary, hardened character, the GP Sea Hawk II Pro will give you your money’s worth. Strong reactions guaranteed.
