The winners were selected by a secret ballot vote last week in Geneva. No one, not even the jury, knew who the winners would be until this evening’s announcement.
The winning timepieces will now travel to London’s Saatchi Gallery, where they will be put on display during SalonQP.
There we will have the chance to sit down with some of the winners and their newly decorated pieces then.
Last year, the Breguet Classique Chronométrie took home the prize.
