— Today marks the 43rd anniversary of Jo Siffert’s death on a tragic racing accident. The Swiss pilot was tied to the first watch sponsorship in Formula 1 and to one of the coolest chronographs ever – the 1969 Autavia, whose 2002 reedition became a case study.
— From today, the 72 watches pre-selected by the GPHG jury 2014 are on show in Geneva. The prize-giving ceremony, of which the 14th edition will take place on October 31st 2014, will be broadcast live and in English on WorldTempus.
— The progress made by this fully-independent firm in ten years has exceeded all expectations. A major milestone came in 2013, when the maison revealed it was heir to the invention of the chronograph – with a watch dating back to 1816.
