As manufactures and watchmakers spring back to life after a long recess, it's time to look back at all of the great watches that have been released this year. For the 2019 edition of the GPHG, 84 watches separated into 14 categories will be voted on by the prestigious Grand Prix d’Horlogerie de Genève jury. While we're sure to have multiple category winners, only one watch can win the coveted Aiguille d’Or trophy.

The official prize ceremony will occur November 7th at Geneva's Théâtre du Léman, but prior to the official ceremony, the GPHG will be hosting a global tour of the competing watches which you can learn more about HERE.
