By Josh Shanks

Since its founding in 2001, the Grand Prix d’Horlogerie de Genève (GPHG) has been recognizing some of the best novelties of our industry. Each year, brands vie for the coveted Aiguille D’Or (Best in Show) prize. Winning a GPHG award can put your brand on the map. Each year, the show sets the bar for what defines the best in horology. On Sept 1, 2017, the GPHG announced the finalists for each of their 12 categories. The final jury deliberations and selections will occur just before the Nov 8th award ceremony.
