Having made a stopover in Sydney, the 84 watches pre-selected for the Grand Prix d’Horlogerie de Genève (GPHG) are now in Bangkok. This is a first for both Australia and Thailand and is indicative of the flourishing watch culture in both markets. The Exhibition is located at PMT The Hour Glass in the Siam Paragon complex and is open to the public today and tomorrow (ending on the 5th of October).

“The GPHG is particularly grateful to be able once again to count on the support of The Hour Glass. As a media showcase and exceptional promotional tool for the watchmaking industry, this is the first time that the GPHG has exhibited its pre-selected watches – of which there are 84 this year – in Thailand, a country with many watch lovers and collectors. It was a privilege to meet them in the Land of Smiles.” Raymond Loretan (President of the GPHG)
“Every year, the watch industry celebrates creativity and ingenuity with the GPHG, also known as the “Watchmaking Oscars”. We are proud to bring to Thailand the most innovative and creative timepieces that will be rewarded at GPHG 2019. Our Thai watch enthusiasts and collectors will be delighted to have a unique opportunity to discover these truly exceptional watches.” Narun Thamavaranukup (Managing Director, PMT The Hour Glass)
All 84 watches will then fly to Mexico before returning to Geneva, where the 19th GPHG awards ceremony will be held on the 7th of November. For more information on competing watches click here.
