The mission of the Grand Prix d’Horlogerie de Genève is to encourage creativity and introduce new watchmaking talent. During last week’s evening event, ten awards were presented, including the prestigious Ladies’ Watch Prize.

On a dial of contre-jour enamelling, the Le Pont des Amoureux watch presents two lovers, each on a romantic stroll across Paris, which ends in their rendez-vous. A retrograde movement advances the characters, who indicate the passage of time until midnight, when they kiss.
