At the upcoming watch fair in Geneva, the Salon International d’Haute Horlogerie or SIHH, many new watch brands show their new collections. This year again, Girard-Perregaux brings really astonishing watches.

Two of these beauties are the lovely Vintage 1945 off-centered hour and minute and the rugged Sea Hawk Pro 1000 meters. The Girard-Perregaux Vintage 1945 Off-centered hour and minute has an automatic caliber GP01900 offering a power reserve of 46 hours. The power reserve indicator is positioned at the right lower corner on the dial. The beautiful and well balanced dial is made of enamel and has a nice ivory color. With a size of 36 x 37 mm this is a perfect dress watch.

Another impressive new release, that i really like, is the Sea Hawk Pro 1000 meter. Although this 44 mm large dive watch already has a few legendary predecessors, Girard-Perregaux comes with yet again an astonishing watch. The stainless steel case has a helium escape valve, like the Rolex Sea-Dweller and several other serious dive-watches.

The manufacture caliber GP033R0 shows, besides hours and minutes, also a small second hand, the date and a power reserve indicator. Again a well balanced dial design and i particularly like the matte black dial.

In my opinion this is the most beautiful of all Sea-Hawks!
