Moritz Grossman in the 2018 pre-selection with the TEFNUT Twist Classic
The jury of the 18th Grand Prix d’Horlogerie de Genève (GPHG) has published the official list of the 72 short-listed watches of 2018. The watches are divided into 12 categories. They compete for one of the 16 coveted prizes awarded to the best watch creations of the year, including the prestigious Aiguielle d’Or Grand Prix. The winners will be announced on 9 November 2018 as part of the 18th GPHG award ceremony in Geneva. The short-list will be on display ahead of the ceremony at a roadshow in Venice, Hong Kong and Singapore.
The TEFNUT Twist Classic by Moritz Grossmann, a model variant of the TEFNUT Twist, is short-listed in the ladies’ watch category. With the TEFNUT Twist Classic, Grossmann’s strap winding mechanism allows the watch to be wound by turning the strap attachment positioned at 6 o’clock on the watch case. A central guilloche forms a harmonious symmetry with the gently raised hour ring with its circularly aligned numerals, all framed by a ring of white diamonds. In addition, the small second at 7 o’clock forms striking counterpoint. Elegant Arabic numerals complete the image.
