Meanwhile, a Royal Oak from Audemars Piguet was named the best of the best at the Oscars for horology

Last night in Geneva, Audemars Piguet emerged the biggest winner at the 19th Grand Prix d’Horlogerie de Geneve (GPHG), winning in 3 of the 4 categories it was a finalist, including the main prize, "Aiguille d’Or" Grand Prix for its Royal Oak Selfwinding Perpetual Calendar Ultra-Thin.

MB&F unsurprisingly won the Ladies’ Complication Watch Prize with its Legacy Machine FlyingT, the Max Busser-founded company’s first watch specifically designed for women that boasts a vertically constructed movement with a flying tourbillon spinning above the dial.

The nicest surprise – and doing Malaysia proud in the process - was Ming, which walked away with the “Horological Revelation” prize that recognises an outstanding young brand (less than 10 years in existence). Founded by a group of Malaysian watch enthusiasts, Ming’s first watch, 17.01, famously sold out in a matter of hours when it was launched in 2017. This is not Ming’s first appearance at GPHG – it was a finalist last year in the “Petite Auguille” category for watches priced between 4,000 Swiss franc (about RM16,600) and 10,000 Swiss franc (RM42,000).
