It will wind up with the traditional show in Geneva, at the Cité du Temps, from 27 October to 4 November. The Awards Ceremony will be held at the Grand Théâtre in Geneva on 29 October 2015.
Open to all brands, the GPHG pits several hundred watches marketed during the year, which are divided into categories, against each other. The watches are judged by an independent, international and multi-disciplinary jury comprising watchmaking experts and specialists, collectors, journalists and prominent personalities.
Swiss-made expertise promoted abroad
With the aim to unify and to celebrate creativity, innovation and the pursuit of excellence, the GPHG helps to strengthen the close ties between watchmaking enthusiasts and professionals worldwide. It strives to recognise the most remarkable creations every year and to promote Swiss-made expertise.
The Edmond de Rothschild group wanted to build a partnership with the GPHG based on these common values and a partnership that would offer a true opportunity for an international presence. This is achieved through the travelling exhibition of pre-selected watches, spanning Hong Kong, Shanghai, Paris, Zurich, Moscow, Dubai, Macao, Singapore, Beijing, New Delhi, Geneva and London, etc.
Furthermore, the event enjoys international coverage through live broadcasts of the award ceremony on Euronews.com, Worldtempus.com, hodinkee.com, Léman Bleu Télévision and on the GPHG website, thereby drawing watchmaking enthusiasts from around the world.
