Tonight in Geneva, the Grand Prix d’Horlogerie de Genève hosted the watch industry for the much anticipated GPHG awards ceremony. Here’s a rundown of the winning watches.
Every Fall, the watch industry gathers to recognize the best of our industry. Winning a GPHG award is like winning an Academy Award, it’s a true honor and the subsequent side effects of winning can be astounding.
For a young independent brand or even mega-watchmaking house, having a GPHG award in your display case can help to even further ignite interest and conversation. Continuing our fourth year as a partner of GPHG, Watchonista was present in Geneva to witness the night's festivities.
Here is a comprehensive list of the award winners.
"Aiguille d'Or" Grand Prix
