It’s that time of year again! As the Swiss watchmaking valleys slowly come back to life after summer holidays, the GPHG has announced the 72 finalists for the 2018 edition of the Grand Prix d’Horlogerie de Genève.

This year, the ceremony will be split in to 12 categories and 16 prizes will be given away during the November 9th ceremony in Geneva. Last year we saw the Chopard L.UC. Full Strike take home the coveted Aiguille d’Or trophy.
