The competition features a range of categories, including: men’s and women’s watches, complications, sports watches, jewelry watches, and more. Each category represents a unique facet of watchmaking, allowing for a broad spectrum of talent and creativity to shine.

What sets the GPHG apart is its distinguished panel of expert judges. These experts are renowned for their expertise in watchmaking. They carefully evaluate each entry based on criteria such as craftsmanship, aesthetics, technical excellence, and innovation.

Winning a GPHG award is a testament to a timepiece’s exceptional quality and design. For watchmakers, receiving an award is a moment of great pride and recognition. Winning a GPHG award can have a significant impact on a watch brand’s visibility and success in the market.


The event has a category specifically dedicated to independent watchmakers, recognizing the contributions of smaller, often highly innovative, and artisanal brands to the industry. This category highlights the spirit of entrepreneurship and creativity in watchmaking.
