In 2013, the famous Girard-Perregaux brand presented a special edition of designer watches created in collaboration with Susan Rockefeller and named after her eponymous documentary, “Mission of Mermaids” also known as MOM. This 15-minute film shown through the eyes of the mythical mermaid is a poetic ode to the ocean and at the same time a plea for its protection. Being a part of the “Protect What is Precious” project established by Susan and David Rockefeller, it is intended to bring peace, love, and health into our lives, as well as to protect families, art, and nature. Thereby, the new Girard-Perregaux high-end luxury watches for men and women have a special meaning hinting at the importance of environmental protection.
Girard-Perregaux Sea Hawk Mission of Mermaids. These new design watches are an embodiment of the animal grace, agility, wisdom, and strength. Moreover, they also serve as a reminder of the unique brand’s experience in the field of sports high-end watches. The case is that Girard-Perregaux was the first luxury watch manufacturer that started the mass production of military timepieces. It was in 1880, and in the 1940s, it introduced to the world its first generation of the distinctive Sea Hawk models. As for the new exclusive models from this series developed in collaboration with Susan Rockefeller, they were definitely inspired by nature. To emphasize this, the brand decorated the case back of each MOM luxury watch with the mythical mermaid engraved on the sapphire crystal that embodies the need to protect the oceans.
This sample of nice watches for men comes in a stainless steel case measuring 48,90mm x 46,20mm that has an impressive water resistance up to 1000 meters.
