By Pardhasaradhi Gonuguntla

In a glittering ceremony in Geneva, the annual Grand Prix d’Horlogerie celebrated the best achievements in watchmaking of 2009, as chosen by a panel of select judges.

The “L’Aiguille d’Or” grand prize (the “Golden Hand”) was presented to A. Lange & Söhne for Lange Zeitwerk. Piaget picked up the Ladies’ Watch Prize for their Limelight Twice watch.

Men’s Watch Prize went to Audemars Piguet for the high-frequency, manual-winding Jules Audemars wristwatch with AP escapement, while the Design Watch Prize was awarded to Harry Winston for the Opus 9. The Jewelery Watch Prize went to Jean-Claude Biver for his Hublot Black Caviar timepiece.

Tourbillon specialist Greubel Forsey received the Complicated Watch award for the Double Tourbillon 30°, and watch innovator Richard Mille took home the Sports Watch Prize for his RM 025 Diver’s Watch.

The honor of Best Watchmaker went to M. Anthony Randall. Fawaz Gruosi shone in a trying year, and was duly recognized with the Public Prize for de Grisogono’s Meccanico dG N03 Titane, as chosen by public vote.
