Each year, a group of watch industry insiders come together at the GPHG to decide which watches are worthy of celebration. This year, however, the format it very different and promises much more of a show. Let’s take a look at it in today’s episode of Watch Chronicler Unscripted.
The GPHG (Grand Prix d’Horlogerie de Genève) is an annual event which, for a few years, has seemed a somewhat of an irrelevance to the watch market. Adjudicated by a small panel of insiders, it bore little important to the average buyer or even enthusiast. However, all has changed this year with a broader electorate of 350.
In today’s podcast, let’s take a look at the most exciting watches featured as finalists in the GPHG and ask ourselves whether this competition which started in 2001 is becoming a far more relevant annual occasion. This year’s watches include Grand Seiko, MB&F, Doxa, Habring and many other brands.
