Grand Prix De Horlogerie

One of the watch industry's biggest events —The Grand Prix de Horlogerie Geneva (GPHG) — takes place tomorrow in Geneva. Every year for the past 15 years, the GPHG has celebrated the finest timepieces on the market by honoring one watch in a host of different categories.

This year there are 12 categories, including Ladies, Ladies High-Mech, Men’s, Chronograph, Tourbillon, Calendar, Travel Time, Mechanical Exception, Petite Aiguille (best in show), Sports, Jewelry and Artistic Crafts. There is also a People’s Choice Award that is selected based on votes from the general public.

Approximately 160+ watches were submitted to the GPHG for consideration this past June. These watches were then culled down by a jury to the final pre-selected nominations of six per each within the 12 categories, for a final 72 watches. We will bring you the results of the awards next week, but here are a few nominees from the brands we are proud to carry in our store.
