GPHG 2023 – Nominations and world tour

The 850 members of the GPHG Academy rendered their verdict this summer. Using digital means and under notarial supervision, they nominated 90 timepieces. These 84 watches and 6 clocks are in the running to win one of the 20 prizes at this 23rd edition of the GPHG, including the prestigious “Aiguille d’Or” Grand Prix best-in-show award.

The Foundation of the Grand Prix d’Horlogerie de Genève (GPHG) invites you to discover the 2023 official nominees, as well as the stages of its world tour, on gphg.org.

Each year, a series of exhibitions brings together the nominated watches prior to the awards ceremony – followed by showings of the competition winners – for an international audience of enthusiasts and connoisseurs alike. Organised in collaboration with local partners, these exhibitions contribute to the promotion of watchmaking culture around the world, while also offering talks, discussions, workshops as well as other public and private events.

The 84 watches shortlisted this year by our Academy will be exhibited in Macao on 25 and 26 September; then in Hong Kong from 28 September to 1 October as part of the new Timeless Watch Week; in Kuala Lumpur from 4 to 8 October in partnership with The Hour Glass; in New York from 18 to 22 October with Watches of Switzerland; and finally in Geneva from 25 October to 12 November at the Musée Rath, in partnership with the Musée d’Art et d’Histoire(MAH). The latter will be presenting – alongside the 90 GPHG nominated timepieces – a foray into the origins of watchmaking through  the “Hand & Tool” exhibition. Visitors will also be able to take part in guided tours, talks, games and introductory watchmaking workshops (Mediation program).

The 23rd GPHG awards ceremony will be held on 9 November 2023 at the Théâtre du Léman in Geneva. The prize-winners will be determined by the 30-person jury that will meet behind closed doors a few days prior to the ceremony, along with a second vote by the Academy.

After the ceremony, the winning timepieces of the 2023 edition will be presented from 15 to 20 November 2023 as part of Dubai Watch Week, then at the Kunsthaus inZurich from 1 to 3 December in partnership with Kaleido Private Bank.
