About

Since its inception in 2001 the Grand Prix d’Horlogerie de Genève (GPHG) has become one of the leading events in the world of haute horologerie, featuring an important timepiece display followed by the exclusive award ceremony, on the last day of the exhibition. During the 10 days of the display, an expert jury votes the best watch for the current year from the pre-selected pieces on exhibit.
Born with the purpose of promoting Swiss watchmaking and its values the Grand Prix d’Horlogerie de Genève (GPHG) enables watch enthusiasts and the most curious ones to admire never-before-seen creations of a peerless value on their travelling exhibition around the world.
