GPHG 2022: MB&F wins the “Aiguille d’Or” Grand Prix

The Geneva Watchmaking Grand Prix announced the winners of its various categories at its prestigious ceremony last night. For the Aiguille d’Or, the winner is none other than the Geneva-based manufacture MB&F.


Over the years, the GPHG has become the most important annual prize in the watch industry. It was held last night at the Théâtre du Léman in Geneva. This 22nd ceremony was hosted by the comedian and playwright, Edouard Bear.


Highly anticipated by watchmaking professionals and enthusiasts, the ceremony brought together 650 personalities from the profession worldwide. The jury, chaired by Nick Foulkes, honored excellence and watchmaking know-how by awarding 21 prizes.


After the consecration of the LVMH group in 2021, it is the Geneva-based independent watch designer MB&F that was awarded the most prestigious distinction of the GPHG: the Aiguille d’Or. A first for the laboratory of Maximilian Büsser & Friends.

Other prestigious brands such as Bulgari, Ferdinand Berthoud, Hermès, Parmigiani Fleurier, TAG Heuer, Trilobe and Van Cleef & Arpels have also been rewarded. The editions follow one another but are not alike.


Indeed, this year the event gives pride of place to brands that are not affiliated with a major watchmaking group.


The Jury’s Special Prize, which rewards a personality or an institution in the watchmaking world, was awarded to François Junot, a Swiss automaton and sculptor.


Among the 90 models nominated a few months ago, the winners are on display at the Rath Museum in Geneva and will also be presented in New York from December 1 to 4.


This is an opportunity for amateurs and professionals to discover or rediscover these exceptional timepieces, without seeing the time pass.
