GPHG 2013 Exhibition in Geneva

The 70 timepieces pre-selected by the jury of the 2013 Geneva Watchmaking Grand Prix are being presented to the Genevan public from November 1st to 10th in La Cité du Temps.

This latest stage in the travelling exhibition, officially inaugurated in Geneva on October 31st, offers an exceptional opportunity to view some of the year’s finest horological creations in one place – all competing to win the prestigious “Aiguillle d’Or” or one of the 15 other GPHG awards. The scenography of the exhibition was entrusted to the preorder&soldout studio run by two alumni of the HEAD (Geneva University of Art and Design), winners of the 2012 AHEAD Design Incubator programme. It features an “ immersive staging evoking the intrigues and mysteries of timekeeping instruments and of watchmaking expertise”.

The 13th GPHG award ceremony will take place on Friday November 15 th 2013 at the Grand Théâtre de Genève, in the presence of Mr Ueli Maurer, President of the Swiss Confederation, along with the Genevan authorities and representatives of the international watchmaking profession. Frédéric Beigbeder will once again be serving as master of ceremonies. The members of the international jury of this 13th edition of the GHPG will be present on stage and will take turns in announcing the names of the 2013 winners.
Geneva will have a live link-up with New York where the ceremony will be broadcast at a special event held in a famous specialised boutique on Madison Avenue .
Connoisseurs around the world will also be able to follow the ceremony live on the official GPHG website GPHG.org, on Euronews.com, as well as on Thewatches.tv and WorldTempus.com.

During the run-up to the prize-giving ceremony, the public is invited to vote for their favourite watch. In a few clicks on GPHGg.org or onsite at La Cité du Temps, web users and visitors can cast their vote for the “Public Prize” and thereby automatically take part in the prize draw to win a watch.
