Winners of the 17th Grand Prix d’Horlogerie de Genève (GPHG) were revealed last night with Chopard picking up the most prestigious Aiguille d’Or prize for its L.U.C Full Strike Watch.
Bulgari was the night’s only double winner, picking up gongs in the Men’s Watch and Tourbillon and Escapement Watch categories for two editions from its 2017 ultra-thin Octo Finissimo family.
The awards, which are broadly recognised as the most authoritative examination of innovation and expertise by Swiss watchmakers, whittled down a shortlist of 72 competing watches to 16 winners.
All 72 competing watches are on show at the Musée d’art et d’histoire in Geneva (MAH) until November 12th, as part of an original exhibition dedicated to the contemporary art of watchmaking. The winners will also be exhibited from November 16th to 20th during the 3rd Dubai Watch Week.
The full 2017 GPHG winner list is:
Chronograph Watch Prize: Parmigiani Fleurier, Tonda Chronor Anniversaire.
