On September 2, 2019, local time, the 19th GPHG (Geneva Fine Watch Awards) announced the list of 84 timepieces preselected by the jury. The 84 timepieces are divided into 14 categories, totaling 18 awards aimed at paying tribute to the best timepiece creation of the year, including the prestigious Aiguilled’OrGrandPrix.
The international jury is composed of 30 industry experts and conducts two rounds of secret balloting in a completely independent manner, supervised by a notary. GPHG pays tribute to fearless creativity, technical genius, sincere enthusiasm and expertise, which have helped the watchmaking industry to stay alive for centuries.
On Thursday, November 7, 2019, the final winners will be announced at an awards ceremony at the Léman Theatre in Geneva. Actor and director Edouard Baer will be in charge of the ceremony again, and the event will be broadcast live via gphg.org and GPHG media partners.
