CH24 Watch of The Year – 2022 edition takes new shape!
Hereby we present the 13th edition of our annual CH24 Watch of The Year. With new visuals and new categories but continuously with the most interesting premieres of the past 12 months, selected by an international group of renowned experts and our readers.
Already for 13 consecutive years CH24.PL nominates and awards the most interesting new releases of the watchmaking industry. Every 12 months an international jury, composed of acclaimed and experienced watch journalist and collectors, nominates and then honors best timepieces in each competition category. Thirteen isn’t any round anniversary, but this year’s edition marks few important changes. We decided to introduce them into the rulebook of the “Watch of Th Year” to make the event more attractive, more interesting and even better recognized around the world.
