Bangkok, October 3rd 2019 – After Australia, the 84 watches pre-selected for the Grand Prix d’Horlogerie de Genève (GPHG) on the 2019 GPHG roadshow are stopping off in Bangkok. Like the one in Sydney, this Thai stopover is a first for the GPHG, which has created this exhibition in partnership with The Hour Glass. The timepieces will be on display from October 3rd to 5th in the PMT The Hour Glass boutique, located in the Siam Paragon complex.
At the exhibition highlight, the inauguration cocktail held on October 3rd, connoisseurs and stakeholders in the local watchmaking community gathered to share their passion for fine craftsmanship and watchmaking creativity. In parallel with the opening of the exhibition to the public, exclusive events will be organised, in particular by the LGT private bank, global partner of the GPHG, and by the Swiss Embassy, which will offer their privileged clients unique opportunities to discover the technical and artistic achievements as well as the sheer magic of the timepieces on display.
“Every year, the watch industry celebrates creativity and ingenuity with the GPHG, also known as the “Watchmaking Oscars”. We are proud to bring to Thailand the most innovative and creative timepieces that will be rewarded at GPHG 2019. Our Thai watch enthusiasts and collectors will be delighted to have a unique opportunity to discover these truly exceptional watches.”
Narun Thamavaranukup, Managing Director – PMT The Hour Glass
“The GPHG is particularly grateful to be able once again to count on the support of The Hour Glass. As a media showcase and exceptional promotional tool for the watchmaking industry, this is the first time that the GPHG has exhibited its pre-selected watches – of which there are 84 this year – in Thailand, a country with many watch lovers and collectors. It was a privilege to meet them in the Land of Smiles.”
Raymond Loretan, President of the GPHG
After Bangkok, the 84 pre-selected watches – competing for the famous “Aiguille d’Or” Grand Prix or one of the 18 prizes that will reward contemporary watchmaking excellence – will fly to Mexico before returning to Geneva, where the 19th GPHG prize-giving ceremony will be held on November 7th.
