    Question Question about Horological Awards

    We have the Oscars awards for the cinematic achievements.. We have the Nobel prizes for academic, cultural and/or scientific advances...

    What about watches and horological achievement.. Do have a well recognized grand prix or something for watches?

    Here are some awards I find from the web:

    1. Grand Prix d’Horlogerie de Genève - GPHG Prize list 2014

    Do you care about these awards? Or they are part of the marketing stuffs?

    Concours international de chronométrie : 2015 Edition

    They are trying to restart these chronometer competitions, they have held them every two years since 2009.
    But the problem is no one wants to lose so there aren't that many entries. Also you have to be European.
    It is kind of pointless since the winner could be easily beaten by a dime store quartz.

    I think people tend to over think this kind of thing, would you really buy a watch that you don't like just because it won an award?
    Does an award make a watch better?
