    Following up on this thread :

    https://forums.watchuseek.com/f2/gph...d-4747501.html

    which announced all of the watches under consideration for this year's GPHG (Grand Prix d'Horlogerie de Geneve) competition, they have announced the final 6 in each category. The winners will be announced on November 9th.

    You can see the finalists ("pre-selections", in GPHG terms) here : Pre-selected watches | GPHG

    And yes, the Giraffe watch made it!

    The 12 categories are:




    "Petite Aiguille" is for watches between 4,000 and 10,000 CHF. "Challenge" is for watches less than 4000 CHF. Smart watches are admissible in both of these categories, as well as the "Sports" category.

    That Longines Record looks really something. I noticed the giraffe watch as well but somehow I don’t think it’d fit in with the rest of my hoard.

    At $130,000, I don't think it needs to fit in.

    And yeah, the Longines Record is pretty amazing for its price... COSC chronometer, silicon balance spring, and 18K gold case for $6300.

    TBH I can think of far far better ways to spend $130K. Just think how many Rolex I could buy.
