It’s that season again when the rundown of watches competing in the following version of the Grand Prix d’Horlogerie de Genève (GPHG) is distributed. The GPHG is the “Oscars” of the watchmaking business, and this is the fifteenth edition.
The list (interface at the lower part of this article) addresses the watches competing in the first round of the competition from which the jury will preselect six in every class. These 72 preselected watches will then go on a little introduction visit –, for example, during the Dubai Watch Week – prior to going in plain view at the Cité du Temps in Geneva.
The winning watches will be chosen during a highly confidential gathering of the jury and along these lines reported during the energizing service that happens on Thursday, October 29, 2015 at the Grand Théâtre in Geneva. You will actually want to watch the function continuously here on Quill & Pad.
