The GPHG 2019 inaugurates new categories
The GPHG is perpetually shifting, evolving and adapting! After the launch of the 19th edition on May 1st and with entries still open until the end of June, here are the new features of the 2019 rules. This year, the GPHG is inviting watch brands to enter watches in 14 different categories, including two unprecedented ones.
As its name implies, the Diver’s category is dedicated to watches linked to the world of diving, whose functions, materials and designs are suited to this activity. The Iconic category is open to watches from an emblematic collection that has been exercising a lasting influence on watchmaking history for more than 25 years.
In addition, the Calendar and Astronomy category is back this year and relates to men’s mechanical watches comprising at least one calendar and or astronomical complication. The “Horological Revelation” Prize is also returning in 2019, enabling the jury to reward a creation from a youthful brand.
The 2019 list of prize-winners will be announced on November 7th at the Théâtre du Léman in Geneva.
