The Grand Prix d’Horlogerie de Genève (GPHG) recognises excellence in watchmaking, handing awards in 12 categories to the finest creations and the watch-making houses behind them.

"Winning the ‘Ladies High Mechanical’ category last year was a source of tremendous inspiration for our entire team. To win another GPHG award this year is an honour and privilege that we will not take lightly as we approach 2017, a year that marks both the 100th anniversary of the Russian Revolution and the 175th anniversary of the founding of Fabergé in 1842," said Sean Gilbertson, Fabergé CEO.

“I thank and congratulate the entire Fabergé team, together with Jean-Marc Wiederrecht and his formidable family and posse at Agenhor, for making this award possible by embracing a spirit of mechanical and artistic adventure.”

The automatic-winding Fabergé Visionnaire DTZ uses a movement created for Fabergé by Agenhor Manufacture. The collection also features a dial-side rotor, which can be seen under the dial’s colour-matched sapphire crystal hour ring. Agenhor Manufacture concealed a peacock-shaped component within the movement, in honour of Fabergé’s award-winning Lady Compliquée Peacock watch.
