The Geneva Horology Grand Prix will be held on Nov 14. A jury of international journalists and collectors will vote for the "best" watch in each category. Here are the VC's nominated in each category.

You can find the full list of nominees by clicking here

Which watches would you vote for if you were part of the jury?

Ladys Watch: Patrimony Traditionnelle Skeleton

Mens Watch: Patrimony Traditionnelle Manual Wind

Design Watch: Les Historiques American 1921

Jewelry Watch: Kalla Haute Couture à Secret

My votes:

Ladies Watch: Van Cleef and Arpels, A Day in Paris

I find the name VC&A so exciting and I love the complication of the rotating disc on the dial

Mens Watch: Audemars Piguet Jules Audemars

I love the open dial design, the high frequancy escapement and the dead seconds

Design Watch: The Corum T-Bridge

The hardest category for me as I love the Horological Machine 3 and the American 1921 but find that with the T Bridge Corum have made an excellent mix of traditional watchmaking with the fascinating baguette movement in a perfectly designed and wearable case

Jewelry Watch: VC Kalla Haute Couture a Secret

A bracelet which hides a watch, poetic and beautifully executed

Complicated Watch: Claret Dual Tow

Some amazing pieces in this catagory but the Dual Tow with its belt driven time reading functions as well as chimes each time the chronograph is triggered is a true beaty merged with technical mastery

Sports Watch: Hublot Big Bang Wally

Nothing in this category really caught my eye (just shows how difficult it is to make an attractive sports watch!) but if I had to choose one it would be the BB

Les Historiques American 1921 Doc
My votes go to...

Ladies' watches: La mini D de Dior (would have prefered it in WG) To be honest, not the greatest ever selection of ladies' watches. The Lange is my 2nd choiceMen's watches: De Bethune DW1. Absolutely Stunning. I have never been a fan of Star Trek, but I SOOOOO wish I could get this USS Enterprise on my wrist... It's not cheap (good of them to show MSRP), but would be so worth it. The AP is very nice also, and I do think that the Montblanc NR offers good value for money. I have yet to see this watch in the metal, but from the pictures I have seen they have really done well with this watch.Design watches I'd like to say like Doc, "easy"... but it is not. I think that the VC 1921 wins it by a few whiskers... I prefer the look of the VC, but the AL&S Zeitwerk is very nice as well, and represents a greater achievement from a movement perspective. Jewelery watches I think I'll go for the RD. I like VC's new diamond cut design, but I'm not too keen on the overall look of the watch. I wish that VC had submited instead this one: That is some bling that I would love to wear on my wrist! Complicated watches The GF Double Tourbillon TechniqueSport watches Not a great selection. It's not included in there, but my vote goes to the VC Overseas Chrono in titanium. Cheers, Francois
