Everyone knows the Academy Awards (aka the Oscars), where each year the best films, actors, and craftspeople are honored. In the watchmaking world, the Grand Prix d’Horlogerie de Genève (GPHG) honors timepiece excellence every year, and it is considered the “Oscars” of watchmaking.
Mr. Pascal Raffy, owner of BOVET 1822
Bovet has a long history of success in the GPHG. In 2018, BOVET won the “Aiguille d’Or” for best timepiece of the year with the stunningly beautiful and incredibly complex Récital 22 Grand Récital.
Then, in 2020, the House of BOVET won the Mechanical Exception Award with the Récital 26 Brainstorm Chapter Two, which combines modernity with traditional hand-engraving, as well as the Lady’s Watch price with the Miss Audrey.
