Friday Live: Episode 17: The Grand Prix d'

Jack’s Grand Seiko GMT SBGM031 2012 Limited Edition.

The yearly honor service is facilitated by a non-benefit association – The Foundation of the Grand Prix d’Horlogerie de Genève – and perceives the most awesome aspect current watchmaking. Brands should submit looks for thought and keeping in mind that few out of every odd brand or gathering partakes (remarkable special cases are Rolex and Patek Philippe, among others), the GPHG prizes stay the most comprehensive and significant honors in the watch business. Be that as it may, the jury determinations are essentially fairly restricted, as brand accommodation is an essential for consideration. 

For the current week’s scene, we need you to be the legal hearers, and to improve the pot, rather than picking from simply the GPHG chooses, we are opening up the candidates in three classes, to any watch delivered so far this year. Regardless of whether it be from SIHH or Baselworld , or simply any new watch that you have found out about on HODINKEE  –any new delivery this year is up for your determination. (Obviously, you can pick any watch from the GPHG chooses as well).

Jon’s Bell & Ross BR 126.

The three GPHG prize classifications we’ve picked are: “Unimposing Aiguille” (a class for best watch that costs not exactly CHF 8,000, or $8,392); “Mechanical Exception” (watches with machines, ringing complications, imaginative showcase, or other abnormal mechanical element) and “Aiguille d’Or,” which is best watch generally – fundamentally, your Watch Of The Year. Your hosts – Cara, Jack, and Jon – will uncover their decisions and we will declare the watcher’s picks alongside our own, so leave your designations in the comments area below. 

For a superior thought of class rules, look at the authority GPHG rules, here . Once more, while the GPHG hearers are limited to mark submitted watches, we (and you) can pick any new watch declared this year.
