Grand prix d'horlogerie de Genève - 2011
Every year in November since 2001, the Foundation of the Grand Prix d'Horlogerie de Genève has organised the Grand Prix d’Horlogerie de Genève award ceremony, designed to reward the most innovative contemporary creations, while promoting the art of watchmaking worldwide. Watchmakers from all over the world thus annually submit their timepieces to the multidisciplinary jury, which has the task of nominating watches to specific categories and awarding some 20 prizes.
URWERK and the Grand Prix d’Horlogerie de Genèv
Since 1997, URWERK has won numerous awards, including:
- 2011 - URWERK was awarded the "Best Design" prize for the UR-110.
- 2014 – URWERK’s EMC won the "Mechanical Exception" award as well as the "Innovation Prize".

The aim of these prizes is to highlight the technical prowess as well as the artistic daring of master watchmakers from all over the world. Every URWERK timepiece is the result of advanced technical work to eternally offer a new way of looking at time, and all these prizes fully reflect the brand’s values and identity.
