    GPHG 2018 entries

    This year's GPHG selection:

    http://gphg.org/horlogerie/en/gphg-2...ting-watches-0

    Most of them don't look like watches to me. Maybe they're the horological equivalent of ortolan birds and ikizukuri fish.

    Decadent wonkfest.

    Nero fiddles while Rome burns.

    I do like the look of that VC though....
    So long, and thanks for all the fish :)

    I think the Montblanc Monopusher is really nice.

    Sent from my SM-G903F using TZ-UK mobile app

    Plug for Ming 19.01 which has submitted in the Petite category, which is great to see from a micro brand (even if not to everyone's taste).

    A watch I've been waiting for a while and can't wait to receive in the coming months!

    I agree, caught my eye too. How is the Ikepod in the list though, the relaunched company hasn't even launched on Kickstarter yet according to what I read today on Hodinkee - and even then it's only a generic quartz movement in a Mark Newson look-a-like case?

    Wow, the majority of the conventional watches look out of place.
    It's just a matter of time...

    There are quite a few PSM, a Voutilainen and a couple of de Bethune that I’d happily wear. But thewinner for me isMax’s Legacy.
    Well, everybody in Casablanca has problems. Yours may work out.

    I always thought entry wasn't quite high, but you needed a certain number of the jury to nominate?

    Looking in more detail, I like the challenge category - under CHF4000 including an allowance for smart watches. In particular I like the Gorilla wandering hours, comes in at great value and I think design wiseore coherent than their last offering.

    Bumping this up - the entries have now been whittled to a 'pre-selected' list of 6 per category. Any favourites for people here?

    I see a lot of smaller brands getting recognition which is great exposure for them - lets see how many of them actually win awards....

    The VC ultra thin annual for me, but I did rather like the Seiko.

    Good effort by Mont Blanc.

    The Singer re-imaged would be nice if I could afford the car to go with it.
