This year, the GPHG (Fondation Du Grand Prix D’horlogerie De Genève)is inviting watch brands to enter watches in 14 different categories, including two unprecedented ones.
After the launch of the 19th edition on May 1 and with entries still open until the end of June, GPHG’s latest edition will include the Diver’s and Iconic category.
As its the name implies, the Diver’s category is dedicated to watches linked to the world of diving, whose functions, materials and designs are suited to this activity. The Iconic category is open to watches from an emblematic collection that has been exercising a lasting influence on watchmaking history for more than 25 years.
In addition, the Calendar and Astronomy category is back this year and relates to men’s mechanical watches comprising at least one calendar and/or astronomical complication.
The “Horological Revelation” Prize is also returning in 2019, enabling the jury to reward a creation from a youthful brand. The 2019 list of prize-winners will be announced November 7 at the Théâtre du Léman in Geneva.
