Watch the ceremony

The year 2020 has posed a number of challenges to us all, in every facet of life. Even in times of adversity, however, we find moments of pleasure, moments to celebrate, and the occasion of the announcements of this year’s Grand Prix d’Horlogerie de Genève (GPHG) is one such moment. The 354 members of the inaugural GPHG Academy have spoken, and we’re delighted to share with you the list of 84 contenders in the final round of selections below.

As in previous years, the GPHG enjoys the support of valued partners like WorldTempus, GMT magazine and local enterprises such as Comptoir Immobilier. Watch out for our continued coverage of the event over the next few months, which will include a touring exhibition of the finalists around Switzerland, beginning in La Chaux-du-Fonds and finishing in Geneva in time for the ultimate vote by jury. Stops will be made in key cities such as Berne and Zurich, hosted in the boutiques of venerated international retailer Bucherer.
