Patek Philippe wins the Grand Prix

Watch of the Year Awards in Poland

This year’s Watch of the Year in Poland celebrated horology with an award ceremony in Warsaw. Patek Philippe won the Grand Prix with Reference 5208P, and the Special Jury Prize for lifetime achievement went to Nicolas G. Hayek. 

A number of awards went to watches that represent the above-average skills belonging to today’s best watchmakers, who help make up the power of modern horology: the Grand Prix watch awarded to Patek Philippe for Reference 5208P (monopusher chronograph with perpetual calendar, moon phase and minute repeater).

The jury also awarded a Special Prize to honor the impressive lifetime achievement of Nicolas G. Hayek, co-founder of the Swatch Group and the Swatch brand. Perhaps most importantly, he is justifiably hailed as the savior of the entire Swiss watch industry and its art form. This very special laureate, who sadly passed away in June last year, was presented by Waldemar Ferri-Szczerbowski, a man closely involved in mechanical watchmaking for decades.

Winners were selected by the jury, which includes editors, representatives of the Polish Watch and Clock Collectors Club and international authorities on the subject of watchmaking.
