CH24 Watch of the Year 2023 – 14. edition
International Jury of industry experts has for already the 14th time selected 60 of the most interesting watches, which premiered in past 12 months. They will now compete for the trophies in 6 categories.
It looks it’s been already a years since the last edition of CH24 WOTY. It’s less than nothing in comparison to watchmaking long history, but non the less it was a time rich with new watches launches and exhibitions. Our annual “CH24 Watch of the Year” sums up that period of time.
14th edition of WOTY once again has one superior goal – to award the most interesting new watches of the past 12 months. They were nominated by the international jury, which this year is as follows:
Łukasz Doskocz (editor-in-chief of CH24, president of the jury).
Tomasz Kiełtyka (founder and owner of CH24, vice president of the jury)
Elizabeth Doerr (watch journalist)
Frank Geelen (watch journalist, founder of Monochrome-Watches)
Kristan Haagen (watch journalist)
Jan Lidmansky (watch journalist)
Mateusz Musielak (social media manager at CH24)
Magdalena Piekarska (editor in CH24)
Miguel Seabra (watch journalist)
Wadim Zalewski (editor in CH24)
In addition, in 2023 we have expended the Jury with a Honorary Jury Member, who will held this position for one year. The first one is Robert-Jan Broer – founder of Fratello Watches – privately a passionate collector with a keen eye for Omega Speedmaster. Robert created #SpeedyTuesday, for which we have honored him with a 2017 Special Jury Prize.
