Winners of the 'Oscars of watches' that can be seen in Dubai

The winners of this year’s Oscars of watchmaking were selected, with a wide range of journals recognized for their engineering perfection and eye-catching design.

An industry jury has selected the world’s best watches in fifteen different categories, including sports, jewelry and travel time watches, with the awards awarded by the Grand Prix d ‘Horlogerie de Geneva (GPHG) in Geneva earlier this month.

The grand prize for the world’s best watch, the Aiguille d’Or Grand Prix, was awarded to the Chronomètre Ferdinand Berthoud FB 1 by Ferdinand Berthoud.

This limited edition of white gold and titanium time, which sells for over $ 200,000, has a leather strap and is powered by a hand wound movement comprised of more than 1120 components.

The public prize, selected with votes cast internationally online and at select international watch shows, was awarded by Czapek Geneva to the 33 bis Quai des Bergues.

The winning watches were shown in Seoul, Rome and Geneva before arriving in Dubai on November 15 for their final winning match at Dubai Watch Week.

Watches from brands Audemars Piguet, Montblanc, MB&F, Piaget, TAG Heuer and Tudor, as well as Chanel, Eberhard & Co, Fabergé and Grönefeld, were also honored by the 27-year-old international jury.
