GPHG 2015 Results of the WorldTempus readers’ poll

Our contributors and in-house editorial team have shared their views on the finalists in each of the individual categories at this year’s Grand Prix d’Horlogerie de Genève. Now we take a look at those of our readers.

There are some clear trends in the opinions of our readers and they do not necessarily tally with those of our contributors. One example is the apparent popularity of the Slim d’Hermès collection, which comes out top in three categories in our readers’ poll (Artistic Crafts, Petite Aiguille, Calendar). Piaget was also a popular choice, notably coming top in the important Men’s and Ladies’ categories, with its Altiplano 900P and Limelight Gala models respectively, as well as in the Chronograph category, also with the Altiplano.

Our readers showed more high-end tastes in sports watches than those of our contributors, expressing a preference for the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore Selfwinding Tourbillon Chronograph, the Blancpain Fifty Fathoms Bathyscaphe and the Harry Winston Project Z9. This is in stark contrast to our “in-house” preferences for the much more down-to-earth Seiko Prospex Marinemaster 1000M and the Tudor Pelagos.

Results of the WorldTempus readers’ poll

Opinions converged in the more complicated categories. Our readers concurred with our panel as far as the Mechanical Exception category is concerned, with Jaquet Droz’s Charming Bird taking 43% of their votes. Scooping 49% of the readers’ votes, A. Lange & Söhne’s Zeitwerk Minute Repeater is a clear favourite in the Striking watch category. In the Tourbillon category, the Greubel-Forsey 24 Secondes Vision Tourbillon edged just ahead of our favourite, the Bovet Braveheart® with 27% of our readers’ votes against 21%.

In the ladies’ categories, our readers’ views were aligned with those of our contributors for the Ladies’ High Mech category, where the Fabergé Lady Compliquée Peacock had a handsome lead with 33% of the votes. The same is true for the Jewellery category, with the Audemars Piguet Diamond Punk winning out over the Extremely Piaget Double Side Cuff but by only the most slender of margins (21% for the former against 19% for the latter). With 19% of our readers preferring the De Grisogono Grappoli the decision in this category was clearly far from easy.
