Grand Prix d'Horlogerie de Genève 2022 Carine Maillard

Director of the GPHG

How does the 2022 edition differ from previous ones (categories, ceremony, etc?) 
This is the 22nd edition of the GPHG and the third edition since the creation of the Academy – an institution that has grown in three years to encompass more than 650 members and which has had a measurably positive effect on the development of the GPHG. Conceived in a unifying spirit, this Grand Prix depends on all the stakeholders in this industry and this is accentuated by our Academy, which brings together the actors of the various sectors and involves them at all stages of the competition. The 2022 edition is notably distinguished by the creation of the “Mechanical Clock” category, which opens the competition to longcase clocks and table clocks, at the request of many brands. In addition, the “Chronometry Prize” is back; a sustainable approach can be rewarded in the Innovation Prize ;and the 2022 exhibitions will highlight the nominated timepieces and then award winners in New Delhi, Casablanca (the first such stop-over on the African continent), Geneva, Zurich and New York (see the exhibition schedule on gphg.org).

Which is the edition that made the great impression on you/of which you are proudest since 2001? 
I am happy with how far we have come since the Foundation was created in 2011, to see that we are approaching our primary objectives of sustainability, independence, internationalization; and that our work on behalf of this industry has a purpose.

What more does the GPHG need in order to become even more inescapable? 
Time; it's only 21 years old
