The 19th edition of the prestigious Grand Prix d'Horlogerie de Genève (GPHG), which was held on Thursday, November 7 in the Swiss city, rose to the challenge of ranking the most advanced creations of the horologer's art. 

Audemars Piguet can take pride in having won the most coveted award, the "Aiguille d'Or" Grand Prix, with its Royal Oak Selfwinding Perpetual Calendar Ultra-Thin watch.

Swiss manufacturer Audemars Piguet also found favor with the jury in other categories: the Men's Complication Watch Prize went to Code 11.59 in the Audemars Piguet Minute Repeater Supersonnerie and the Iconic Watch Prize was won by its Royal Oak "Jumbo" Extra-thin.

The Chanel luxury house was also honored on the occasion of the 19th ceremony with the Ladies' Watch Prize, which was awarded to its much lauded J12 Calibre 12.1.

So too was Hermès, which came away with the Calendar and Astronomy Watch Prize for its "Arceau L'heure de la lune" timepiece.
