The winner of the coveted Aiguille d’Or was announced last Wednesday at this year’s Grand Prix d’Horlogerie de Geneve (GPHG) awards, and the lucky recipient was the Chopard LUC Full Strike. The Full Strike was released earlier this year at Baselworld and made waves as the company’s first minute repeater. We should note that the competition this year was pretty stiff, including the Vacheron Constantin Les Cabinotiers Celestia Astronomical Grand Complication 3600 or the A Lange & Sohne Tourbograph Perpetual “Pour le Merite.” Regardless, it’s always fun to watch these awards and follow along. Here is a complete list of the winners. — Bloomberg
