This year, L'Atelier by The Hour Glass is hosting the Grand Prix D'Horlogerie De Geneve (GPHG) exhibition in Singapore and this will happen from 22nd November to 28th November.
The Lange 1815 Rattrapante Perpetual Calendar won the prize for Grande Complication. I understand this category has many contenders and although Lange won (and I definitely agree they are a deserving winner), I think all the candidates in this category are winners.
For the ladies category, I always like the complications from Van Cleef & Arpels. They won with the Lady Arpels Ballerine Enchantée. What an elegant piece featuring a double retrograde minutes and hours.
In total, there are 15 winners and all the watches are on display at the L'Atelier at The Hour Glass at the Ion Shopping Centre (Level 3). I would not spoil the fun for you as it would be better if you had gone down to see it for yourself. And I am sure you will agree with me that all the watches on display are worthy winners!
