GPHG Academy 2021

The GPHG Academy has delivered its verdict! – Check out the 2021 official nominations

Reading Time: 3 minutes

The Foundation of the Grand Prix d’Horlogerie de Genève (GPHG) invites you to consult its website to view the list of watches nominated by the Academy for the 2021 edition of the GPHG.

Building on the contribution of over 500 significant stakeholders representing the main sectors of the international watch industry, the GPHG Academy has conducted its first round of voting and selected 84 timepieces across 14 categories. These watches will continue the competition to win one of the 18 prizes intended to salute the year’s finest watchmaking creations, including the prestigious “Aiguille d’Or” Grand Prix.

Under the aegis of its new president Nick Foulkes, a jury of 30 members drawn from the Academy will meet in Geneva behind closed doors. During this notary-supervised encounter, they will physically evaluate each of the nominated watches and cast a second and last vote by secret ballot. All Academy members will also take part in the final vote via the dedicated digital platform.

The names of the winners will be announced on Thursday November 4, 2021, at the GPHG awards ceremony that will celebrate the 20th anniversary of the GPHG, a unifying event that plays a strategic role in promoting contemporary horological creations.
