The Winning Watches Of The 2018 Grand Prix d’Horlogerie de Genève (GPHG)

Tonight in Geneva, the Grand Prix d’Horlogerie de Genève hosted the watch industry for their always anticipated GPHG awards ceremony. Here’s a rundown of the winning watches.

By Watchonista

Every Fall, the watch industry gathers to recognize the best of our industry. Winning a GPHG award is like winning an Academy Award, it’s a true honor and the subsequent side effects of winning can be astounding. For a young independent brand or even mega-watchmaking house, having a GPHG award in your display case can help to even further ignite interest and conversation. Continuing our fourth year as partner of GPHG, Watchonista was present in Geneva to witness the nights festivities.

Here is a comprehensive list of the award winners.

"Aiguille d'Or" Grand Prix

The prestigious "Aiguille d'Or" award recognizes the best overall watch in any category. The award is considered by many to be the ultimate achievement in watchmaking. This year, the "Aiguille d’Or" went to the Bovet Récital 22 Grand Récital.
