The Full List of Winning Watches from the 2023 Grand Prix d’Horlogerie de Genève (GPHG)

The 23rd awards ceremony of the Grand Prix d’Horlogerie de Genève (GPHG), poetically hosted by actor/director Edouard Baer, was held today in Geneva’s spectacular Théâtre du Léman…and the results are in!

The watch industry gathers together each autumn to officially recognize the best timepieces created each year. Winning a GPHG award is like winning an Academy Award; it’s a true honor, and the goodwill effects of winning can be astounding. For a young independent brand or even a mega-watchmaking house, garnering a GPHG award for your headquarter’s display case can further ignite interest, conversation, and sales. Continuing our tenth year as partner of GPHG, Watchonista was present in Geneva to witness the exciting festivities.

The GPHG Academy - a group of 847 key players in the profession worldwide - and the 2023 Jury chaired by journalist Nick Foulkes, saluted watchmaking excellence and expertise with 19 prizes including the famous “Aiguille d’Or Grand Prix” best-in-show distinction. For the record, last year, the “Aiguille d’Or” went to the MB&F Legacy Machine Sequential Evo.

As a lead-off highlight, this year, the highly coveted “Aiguille d’Or” went to the Audemars Piguet, Code 11.59 by Audemars Piguet Ultra-Complication Universelle RD#4.
