Upcoming GPHG Ceremony on November 9, 2023

The Grand Prix d’Horlogerie de Genève (GPHG) is an annual event held in November that celebrates remarkable achievements in the world of watchmaking. Established in 2001 and overseen by a Foundation recognized as a public interest organization since 2011, the GPHG, located in Geneva, Switzerland, has been dedicated to promoting the art and expertise of watchmaking globally for two decades. Supported by public and private partners, including its principal partner, FGP Global Properties Swiss & Alps, and with active participation from industry stakeholders, GPHG continues to serve as an international showcase for the watchmaking industry.

This prestigious event features various categories, honoring exceptional watches for their mechanical innovation, artistic craftsmanship, and technical complexity. GPHG provides a renowned platform for watchmakers worldwide to exhibit their talents, nurturing innovation and creativity within the industry.

This exhibition, representing a unique opportunity to admire the finest watchmaking creations from 56 brands, has made stopovers this autumn in Macau, Hong Kong, Kuala Lumpur, and New York. It vividly showcases the creativity and diversity of contemporary watchmaking in an original scenography designed for GPHG by Studio preorder & soldout and produced by Dietlin Swiss Showcases.
