The Foundation of the Grand Prix d’Horlogerie de Genève (GPHG) is publishing today on its gphg.org website the list of 84 watches nominated by its Academy for the 2021 edition and it includes three Louis Erard watches.
Building on the contribution of over 500 significant stakeholders representing the main sectors of the international watch industry, the GPHG Academy has conducted its first round of voting and selected 84 timepieces across 14 categories.
These watches will continue the competition to win one of the 18 prizes intended to salute the year’s finest watchmaking creations, including the prestigious “Aiguille d’Or” Grand Prix.
Louis Erard is part of this GPHG 2021 selection with three watches:
La Semaine Louis Erard x Alain Silberstein – Men’s
Le Régulateur Louis Erard x Vianney Halter – “Petite Aiguille”
Le Chrono Monopoussoir Louis Erard x Alain Silberstein – Chronograph
Under the aegis of its new president Nick Foulkes, a jury of 30 members drawn from the Academy will meet in Geneva behind closed doors. During this notary-supervised encounter, they will physically evaluate each of the nominated watches and cast a second and last vote by secret ballot. All Academy members will also take part in the final vote via the dedicated digital platform.
The names of the winners will be announced on Thursday November 4, 2021, at the GPHG awards ceremony that will celebrate the 20th anniversary of the GPHG, a unifying event that plays a strategic role in promoting contemporary horological creations.
