THE 2022 GPHG LADIES WATCH AWARDS
The 2022 edition of the Grand Prix d’Horlogerie de Genève (GPHG) – the watch industry’s top awards show – just wrapped up in Geneva and there are GPHG Ladies watch awards to not miss out.
The GPHG is the best showcase the watch world has to highlight its best and brightest.
The GPHG Academy comprises over 670 individuals within the watch industry, and these people each submit timepieces for consideration, from which the Academy selects the nominated watches. Brands can also submit their watches for consideration.
For the first round of votes, the Academy members will pick their top 6 in order from each category, with points scored for each position – 6 points for a top pick, 5 points for a second pick etc. This process selects the top 6 entries for each of the 15 categories.
In the second round, the GPHG Jury (which comprises 30 members of the Academy) will meet in Geneva and pick their order of the 6 entries in each category. This time, it is 10 points for a top pick, 6 points for second, 4 points for third, 3 points for fourth, 2 points for fifth and 1 point for sixth.
GPHG LADIES WATCH AWARDS
Representing one of the best decisions of the year by the panel (and the GPHG Academy members) is the GPHG Ladies’ watch prize, which was awarded to Parmigiani Fleurier for its sleek, minimalist Tonda PF Automatic. It is a smaller (36mm) version of a great men’s design (which has come full circle to be considered a good thing), with an 18k rose gold case, knurled bezel, finely guilloched dial and, best of all, only a subtle application of diamonds serving as hour markers.
