    I think the last time Tag Won anything was the CR2080? Fitting that it's Monza Weekend.
    Tudor probably won't win I'm either categories but at least they has a Nom.

    Yes, I think you're right. I believe TAG's last nomination was in 2019 for the 80's Monaco 50th.

    The BB58 won last year so it's unlikely a Black Bay will win again this year. Still, 3 nominations for the Black Bay is impressive. Even more impressive is 4 nominations for Breitling, despite Jim's dislike of Georges Kern.

    I was consulted by the jury on my opinions about Kern yes. Difficult to know if it ended up being part of their decisions.

    Wow Tudor has 3 entries! :eek::eek::eek:

    I think the mechanics is the watchmaker submits their entries for selection. Even if you have a nice new watch, you don’t submit, you won’t be counted. Am I right?

    Pretty nice, but as ever, wish they were both 2mm smaller.

    Literally, a one hand watch. To enjoy the popping fingers dial it's gonna cost an arm and a leg. (Sorry, I couldn't resist):D
