Geneva, 30 March 2021
The GPHG International Academy is gaining new expertise with over 100 new members in 2021. With 500 members in its second year of existence, it represents a vast network of ambassadors of the watchmaking passion and its market around the world.
The GPHG Foundation is pleased to publish today on its website, www.gphg.org, the list of members of the 2021 Academy.
The members of the GPHG Academy will together reward excellence in contemporary watchmaking creations. As in last year, they will first have the opportunity to nominate eligible watches. Following the registration of the models by the brands, they will then be invited, during the summer, to participate in an initial vote to elect the shortlisted watches, and then they will take part in a second vote in the autumn to determine the 2021 prize list.
The Foundation is proud to welcome the personalities who are joining the Academy this year and thanks all the members for their involvement and commitment to the service of watchmaking.
With the creation in 2020 of its Academy, which brings together the outstanding players in the profession from around the world, the GPHG has undertaken a profound transformation of its selection and voting process.
In doing so, it is significantly amplifying its mission to showcase the watch industry.
As a strategic instrument for promoting the industry’s novelties, the GPHG allows an international audience to follow the evolution of the watchmaking art over the course of a competition that culminates in the awards ceremony, the 21st edition of which will take place on Thursday, November 4, 2021.
