There are just couple of dates on the horological schedule that qualify as “can’t-miss” occasions, and the yearly Grand Prix d’Horlogerie de Genève (GPHG) is unquestionably one of them. The yearly honors function happens in midtown Geneva and is basically the Oscars of watchmaking, distributing class explicit prizes to watches and the brands that make them. It’s one of only a handful multiple times that the majority of the watch world accumulates in one spot for a joint occasion (however there are a couple of prominent brands who pass on this one) and it’s an extraordinary opportunity to take the temperature of the business, where it’s been, and where it’s going.
We’ve covered the progressions to the GPHG itself and the watches that made the finals polling form , however we figured it is enjoyable to plunk down a couple of days in front of the actual function to project our own speculative votes. I plunked down with Cara, Jon, and Ben a week ago to go over what the GPHG is, the reason it is important, and what watches we think should bring home the top prizes this year. There are a couple of unsurprising outcomes, a couple of shocks, and a modest bunch of conscious differences. On the off chance that you need to realize what to pay special mind to heading into the upcoming function (which you’ll have the option to live stream here on HODINKEE, incidentally), we have you covered.
Enjoy this reward scene of HODINKEE Radio and stay tuned for a GPHG recap reward scene one week from now as well! Tell us down in the comments what watches would get your votes too.
