This year's nominations for Grand Prix D'Horolgerie De Geneve (GPHG) have been announced. Sadly this year no Avstev brands have been pre-selected for nomination. However just by selecting your favourite piece and nominating, you could win your very own Girard-Perregaux, Vintage 1945 XXL Petite Seconde, worth AUD$ 13,640.
Also, head over to Hodinkee and see a great behind the scenes video of the selection process.
Last year, Girard-Perregaux received the "Aiguille d'Or" award, the most coveted distinction in the watch industry, at the “Geneva Watchmaking Grand Prix” for its ground-breaking Constant Escapement L.M. timepiece.
“This award acknowledges the innovative capacity and technical mastery of Girard-Perregaux,” commented Michele Sofisti (CEO of the Sowind Group). “The Constant Escapement L.M. is the embodiment of our vision of watchmaking, which is an art in movement. It pays homage to our history, marked by the creativity that has been the hallmark of Girard-Perregaux since 1791.”
Only a couple of days remain to get your vote in. Good luck!
