SIAR 2016 The Tiempo de Relojes awards
Tiempo de Relojes magazine presented its awards at the SIAR 2016 in Mexico City
At the gala dinner that brings the SIAR to a close in Mexico City, the exhibition organiser Carlos Alonso traditionally announces the winners of his watch magazine's annual awards to some 300 guests. The tenth edition of the show was no exception and WorldTempus is pleased to see a number of its partner brands among the winners chosen by the jury.
The Watch of the Year awarded was presented to Greubel Forsey for its Signature 1 watch. Hermès won the Women's Watch prize for its colourful Slim Mille Fleurs du Mexique. TAG Heuer won the Sports Watch category with its Heuer Monza chronograph. In the Grand Complication category, A. Lange & Söhne's Datograph Perpetual Tourbillon took the honours. In the rather original "horological values" category, Audemars Piguet was rewarded for its Royal Oak Double Balance Openworked. The collector's favourite, Patek Philippe, took the honours in the chronograph category with its Chronograph WorldTimer Ref. 5930. This model was especially honoured at the SIAR, since it was also on the cover of the GMT XXL World magazine that was distributed to visitors.
Two further prizes were announced during the ceremony itself, with Cartier scooping the Public Pirze for its Ballon Bleu watch and the Critics' prize, decided by local media, awarded to Bulgari for its Octo Finissimo Minute Repeater.
The special Tiempo de Relojes prize was awarded to Chopard for the L.U.C Chrono Perpetual, as a nod to the 20th anniversary of the L.U.C collection, which was launched in the same year as Carlos Alonso's magazine. See all the results on tiempoderelojes.com.
