The Grand Prix d'Horlogerie de Genève (GPHG) is among the most important and influential organizations for promoting excellent timepieces, mechanical masterpieces and watches in general.

Academy Member

Since 2024 I’ve had the great pleasure and honour to be part of the Academy of the Grand Prix d’Horlogerie de Genève (GPHG). The Foundation’s main purpose is to highlight and yearly reward the most remarkable contemporary creations and promote the watchmaking art worldwide.

The GPHG notably plays this unifying promotional role by staging an annual competition (often referred to as the watch industry “Oscars”) involving several hundreds of watches marketed during the year and attributing the highest awards in this domain.

The GPHG awards ceremony each November draws elite representatives of the international watchmaking profession, united in honouring the finest creations and stakeholders who daily breathe vitality and creativity into the watchmaking world. Twenty or so prizes, including the “Aiguille d’Or” Grand Prix (Best in Show) distinction are awarded on this occasion.

Since 2020, the GPHG has amplified its field of promotion and action with the creation of an Academy inviting experienced men and women who believe in the common destiny of watchmaking to take part in the various stages of watch selection.
