IS: I did not see nor handle most of the finalist watches in the 2020 GPHG, and I'm well aware just how important/essential that is Should the category title be taken into account or just the rules? Or neither once a watch has been nominated? I'm curious how the least complicated watch - Greubel Forsey's Hand Made 1 - won the Men's Complication prize My biggest disappointments were the lack of recognition for the Armin Strom Minute Repeater Resonance, Bernhard Lederer Central Impulse Chronometer, and De Bethune DB28XP Starry Sky, and the Ming 1801 H41 diver's watch.
JM: Surprising yet very well deserved! I didn't choose it but simply because I always wonder whether the jury will discount brands that win often but it is a dang good men's watch and hard to argue with! But since it won this category last year it now becomes Kari Voutilainen's obligation to try and threepeat by making the best Men's watch of 2021 Displaying just hours, minutes, and seconds, how one of the least complicated watches out of the six finalists took the prize for best Men's Complication is beyond me If the jury was looking for a more traditional dive watch, what on earth does the Breitling Superocean Automatic 48 Boutique Edition have over the Grand Seiko, which is smaller/more wearable, has four days' longer power reserve, and double the water resistance? Two years ago most didn't believe the watch would ever see the light of day after the original concept watch, but taking it to production was, in my mind, what likely sealed the deal for this watch becoming the watch of the year for the GPHG.
IS: I have tip my hat to Martin Green for calling this correctly as while I thought the Piaget Altiplano Ultimate Concept had a shot at the Innovation prize, I couldn't see it beating either the Greubel Forsey Hand Made 1 or the Ferdinand Berthoud FB 2RE This may well have been a watch that looked much more impressive in the metal, and while not my pick for the Aiguille d'Or it is an incredible watch and worthy winner1111. .
