“Geneva Watchmaking Grand Prix
Crowning Achievement For F.-P. Journe

After Vacheron Constantin and Patek Philippe, the Geneva Watchmaking Grand Prix this year awarded its highest distinction to the most Genevan of watchmakers from Marseilles.

On 11 November, in the sumptuous setting of the Grand Theatre, the Geneva Watchmaking Grand Prix remained true to its young but nonetheless well-established tradition: for its fourth edition, as in previous years, an avalanche of prizes was awarded to a profusion of watch models for their technical or aesthetic qualities. This abundance ‚Äì not to say plethora ‚Äì of awards in no way detracts from the seriousness of the event, as attested by the quality of the prize-winning watches and an international panel of judges beyond all suspicion. Chaired by the director of the city‚Äôs art and history museums, C?§sar Menz, the panel included such renowned connoisseurs as Catherine Cardinal, Osvaldo Patrizzi, Ren?© Beyer, Patrick Cremers, Eugenio Zigliotto and Joe Thompson. “ Click here for the full story
