Prix Gaïa 2017

Often described as the Nobel of watchmaking, the Prix Gaïa is an honorary award which, since 1993, recognises special achievements in three categories: "Artisanat création" (arts and creations), "Esprit d'entreprise" (entrepreneurship) and "Histoire" (history and research).


Every year it is assigned at the autumnal equinox, in 2017 falling on September 21. In fact, yesterday evening, the Musée International d'Horlogerie in La Chaux-de-Fonds assigned the three Gaïa Awards 2017.


Jean-Marc Wiederrecht, the founder of Agenhor Atelier, was the winner in the Crafts, Creation category for its creative contribution in the register of watch complications, marrying functionality to aesthetics for the benefit of many brands.

Among the others, Wiederrecht invented the movements for special timepieces like Harry Winston Opus 9, Van Clef & Arpels Pont des Amoureux, Slim d’Hermès Quantième PerpétuelFabergé Visionnaire DTZ.

Some of the past winners of the Gaïa Award in the Crafts, Creation category are Philippe Dufour, George Daniels, François-Paul Journe, Michel Parmigiani, Derek Pratt, Andreas Strehler and Kari Voutilainen.



In the Entrepreneurship category, Richard Mille was awarded for the driving role played by his company in the definition of modern Swiss watchmaking introducing a new concept of prestige through the use of original materials and the development of futuristic creations (you can read the history of the brand here). Nicolas Hayek, Robert Greubel et Stephan Forsey, Jean-Claude Biver, Philippe Stern and Giulio Papi are some of the winners of past editions of the award.



Laurence Marti was the laureate in History and Research for its essential contribution to the knowledge of the history of watchmaking in a spirit of complete independence.
