The Academy plays a key role in the operation of the GPHG. Its members annually nominate the six timepieces that will go on to compete in each category and also choose the winners alongside the Jury, itself entirely drawn from the Academy. Created in 2020, this community of watchmaking experts and enthusiasts has increased in size each year through a co-option process, taking the current total number of members to 960. Its development also reflects the GPHG's commitment to bringing together all the experienced stakeholders who wish to help promote watchmaking, as well as its desire to open up to younger generations.

The 2024 edition introduce a new opportunity for the Academy to showcase six watches competing in the "Time Only" category, open to classic timepieces with two or three hands and no complications. The “Mechanical Clock” category is taking a break in 2024, giving watchmakers time to develop new creations.

With regards to the "Petite Aiguille" category, it will now be open to watches with a retail price of between CHF 3,000 and CHF 10,000, while the "Challenge" category will be dedicated to watches costing less than CHF 3,000. The Innovation Prize will give way to the Eco-Innovation Prize which will be awarded to one of the 90 competing timepieces featuring watchmaking developments placing particular emphasis on sustainability and traceability.

The 24th GPHG awards ceremony will take place on Wednesday 13 November 2024 at Geneva’s Théâtre du Léman. Meanwhile, we invite you to follow us on Instagram, Facebook, LinkedIn and YouTube.
