GPHG 2018 / PRE-SELECTED WATCHES & PREDICTIONS
The jury of the 18th Grand Prix d’Horlogerie de Genève (GPHG) has delivered its initial verdict: the Foundation of the Grand Prix d’Horlogerie de Genève (GPHG) invites you to discover the official 2018 pre-selection on its gphg.org website. The 72 pre-selected watches, divided into 12 categories, are competing to win one of the 16 prizes that will salute the year’s finest watch creations, including the prestigious Aiguille d’Or Grand Prix.
The winners will be announced on Friday November 9th at the 18th GPHG prize-giving. Held in Geneva’s Théâtre du Léman, the award ceremony will be attended by Mr Johann Schneider-Ammann, Federal Councillor and Economic Affairs Minister, along with Genevan authorities and representatives of the international watchmaking profession, all gathered to celebrate the art of horology. French actor and producer Edouard Baer will be serving as master of ceremonies for this event that will notably be broadcast live on Euronews, gphg.org and several international media partner websites.
The 2018 roadshow will kick off in Venice on September 28th with an event organised at the Arsenal in partnership with BMW Italy. The 72 pre-selected watches will then fly off to Hong Kong, where they will be on show in the Liang Yi Museum on October 10th and 11th, for private events organised by our principal partner, LGT private bank and then a public presentation in partnership with the Wine’s Link company. After that, they will stop off in Singapore at The Hour Glass, a prominent retailer hosting the roadshow from October 17th to 21st in its Malmaison boutique, where exclusive events will be organised in parallel with the exhibition’s public opening hours. Upon returning to Geneva, the 72 watches will take up residence in the Palatine rooms of the Musée d'Art et d'Histoire (MAH) from November 1st to 14th, where the GPHG will organise a multi-facetted exhibition dedicated to watchmaking art and culture, with the support of several local institutions.
