The GPHG 2014

04 September 2014 |

17 awards, 72 timepieces and 12 categories. September is the month when the road to the Grand Prix d'Horlogerie de Genève, the most important event that marks this year its 14th edition, gets officially under way. Taking part to the GPHG is for a watchmaker the same as for an actor being nominated for an Oscar or a music band for a Grammy Award.

The grand prize is the prestigious “Aiguille d’Or” which was awarded last year to the outstanding Girard-Perregaux Constant Escapement LM, followed by a prize for each of the twelve categories, and other additional six prizes, among which one to award the most brilliant student attending the 1st year at the School of Watchmaking in Geneva.
