Watch of the Year 2010
The Watch of the Year Contest has become an international institution. Every year watch manufacturers, importers, jewellers and watch lovers look forward to this competition, organized by 0024 Horloges since 2000. A jury of watch experts and dedicated collectors spends many hours judging the watches nominated by manufacturers and importers.
There were several Awards to be won, corresponding with the various price ranges of the participating watches. The winners of the prestigious Watch of the Year Awards are: Nomos Zürich (category up to 3,000 Euro), Jaeger-LeCoultre Reverso Grande Date 986 Duo (category 3,000 - 10,000 Euro), Blancpain L Evolution Phase de Lune 8 Jours (category 10,000 - 25,000 Euro), A. Lange & Söhne Zeitwerk (category 25,000 Euro and above) and the Hublot Big Bang Tutti Frutti Apple (category Ladies Watches). The Innovation Award was gained by the TAG Heuer Monaco V4 Platinum watch. On top of that, the jury decided to hand out a special prize for the spectacular pocket and wrist watch from Bovet, the Fleurier Amadeo Jumping Hours.
