Announcement of the composition of the 2022 GPHG Jury and its President


Geneva, October 6, 2022 - The Foundation of the Grand Prix d'Horlogerie de Genève (GPHG) is pleased and honoured to announce today the composition of the Jury for the 22nd edition of the GPHG. Historian, author and journalist, Nick Foulkes will chair the next Jury that will unite the expertise of 30 personalities from the world of watchmaking and the arts to determine the 2022 prize list.

It is a tremendous honour to serve as President of the Jury of the GPHG. As in previous years, this Jury brings together a wide range of opinion and expertise, from across the watch industry as well as the wider cultural landscape. I believe that the GPHG is increasingly important as a focus for international attention on the watch industry, both within the borders of Switzerland and beyond, while reaffirming the Geneva's position as the global capital of horology in the 21st century.”

The Jury with its rich variety of skills and perspectives is half composed of GPHG academicians drawn by lot and half of members chosen by mutual agreement between the Jury President and the GPHG. The list can be found at gphg.org.

The Jury will meet behind closed doors in Geneva a few days before the ceremony to physically evaluate the nominated timepieces and proceed to a secret ballot under notarial supervision. The entire Academy will also take part in selecting the award winners via a vote on the dedicated digital platform.

As a reminder: At the start of September, the international Academy of the GPHG – comprising more than 650 significant players from the main sectors of the watchmaking industry – nominated the 84 watches and 6 clocks (divided into 15 categories) in the running to win one of the 20 prizes that will be awarded to the year’s finest watchmaking creations, including the prestigious Aiguille d'Or “Grand Prix” best-in-show award.

The winners will be announced on Thursday 10 November during the 2022 awards ceremony, which will take place at the Théâtre du Léman in Geneva. This unifying and strategic event dedicated to the promotion of contemporary watchmaking creations will be broadcast live on Gphg.org, Euronews.com, by our media partners around the world, as well as in deferred transmission mode by the Léman Bleu and Hantang Culture channels.
