Winners of the ‘Oscars of watches’ on show at Dubai

This year’s “Oscars of Watchmaking” winners have been selected, with a wide range of chronographs recognized for their technical perfection and eye-catching designs.

An industry jury selected the world’s best timepieces in fifteen different categories including sports watches, jewelry and travel watches, with prizes awarded by the Grand Prix d’Horlogerie de Genève (GPHG) in Geneva earlier this month.

The grand prize for the best watch in the world, the Aiguille d’Or Grand Prix, was presented to Ferdinand Berthoud’s Chronomètre Ferdinand Berthoud FB 1.

This limited-edition titanium and white gold chronograph retails for over $200,000, features a leather strap, and is powered by a hand-wound movement consisting of more than 1,120 parts.

The Public Prize, selected by votes submitted internationally online and at select international watch exhibitions, was presented by Czapek Genève to the 33 bis Quai des Bergues.

The winning watches were showcased in Seoul, Rome and Geneva before they headed to Dubai on November 15 for the final competition at Dubai Watch Week.

Watches from the brands Audemars Piguet, Montblanc, MB&F, Piaget, TAG Heuer and Tudor, along with Chanel, Eberhard & Co, Fabergé and Grönefeld, were also honored by this year’s 27-person international jury.
