Last week we brought you a story about the annual watch awards known as the Grand Prix de Horlogerie Geneve (GPHG) and showed a few brands we carry that were in the final running. Well, the winners have been announced and we are pleased to bring some of the results to you now. Oh, and make note, you can view these award-winning brands in our store any time.
Coming out on top in the Mechanical Exception category is the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Concept Supersonnerie. Eight years in the making, the acoustic performance of this chiming watch is so intense and beautiful — as well as loud. It can be heard from down a hallway. The manual-wind mechanical movement also offers tourbillon, chronograph and striking functions.
Winning the Calendar category is the MB&F Legacy Machine Perpetual, which features a re-interpretation of the perpetual calendar mechanism with a new patent-pending way to calculate the number of days in a month.
