Under the sunny Dubai sky and the arch of the DIFC Gate Building independent watch brands showcased their special pieces in a great atmosphere.

Below are a few exceptional creations by independents.
The 84 pre-selected watches of the GPHG2020 are competing for the “Aiguille d’Or” Grand Prix or for one of the prizes in the 14 categories that reward contemporary watchmaking excellence.
