The Foundation of the Grand Prix d’Horlogerie de Genève (GPHG) has announced the list of watches pre-selected by its jury for the GPHG 2019 awards.

These 84 timepieces are thus continuing to compete for the prizes, including the prestigious “Aiguille d’Or” Grand Prix that will reward contemporary watchmaking excellence.

The GPHG’s international jury, composed of some 30 experts with a variety of skills, conducts two rounds of voting by secret ballot in an entirely independent manner.

The winners will be announced on Thursday November 7th 2019, at the 19th GPHG Awards Ceremony, to be held at the Théâtre du Léman in Geneva.
