GPHG 2023 NOMINATIONS – THE SHINING STARS AT PALLADIO
Each year, a series of exhibitions brings together the nominated watches prior to the awards ceremony – followed by showings of the competition winners – for an interna-tional audience of enthusiasts and connoisseurs alike. Organised in collaboration with local partners, these exhibitions contribute to the promotion of watchmaking culture around the world, while also offering talks, discussions, workshops as well as other public and private events.
ABOUT THE GPHG AND GPHG ACADEMY
Created in 2020, the GPHG Academy is made up of several hundred members representing significant stakeholders in the main sectors linked to the watch industry, divided into colleges and forming a vast worldwide network of ambassadors. Academy members take part in the various stages of the timepiece selection process, proposing models for the competition in the spring of each year, before designating the nominees among the timepieces entered in the competition by the brands during the summer and then taking part alongside the Jury in the final autumn vote to determine the winners of that edition.

GPHG AND PALLADIO HISTORY
PARMIGIANI FLEURIER NOMINATIONS AT THE GPHG 2023
The company’s signature timepieces are competing in the “Men’s” category with the Tonda PF Micro-Rotor, the “Tourbillon” category with the Tonda PF Flying Tourbillonthe, the “Men’s Complication” category with the Tonda PF Minute Rattrapante, and the “Calendar and Astronomy” category with the Tonda PF Xiali Chinese Calendar.
For the past two years, the brand has been pushing back the boundaries of innovation and watchmaking tradition. The Tonda PF GMT Rattrapante and the Tonda PF Minutes Rattrapante, two world firsts, rethink and reinvent existing functions. Parmigiani Fleurier has chosen to use platinum, a noble material that reflects the brand’s Haute Horlogerie values of discretion and sophistication. Parmigiani Fleurier has also appropriated the territory of cultural calendars – Gregorian, Hijri and Xiali – the fruit of Michel Parmigiani’s great horological expertise.
The individual must control time, their own time. It’s not time that should control the individual. Such is the meaning of our world-première creations.”
— Guido Terreni, CEO Parmigiani Fleurier
