GPHG Trophy, A History

Roger Pfund tells us the inspiration behind the design of the GPHG trophy.

Geneva-based graphic designer Roger Pfund – who also designed the Swiss passport and a large number of bank notes – is also the mastermind behind the trophy which is presented to the winners of the Geneva Watchmaking Grand Prix.

The artist is said to have drawn inspiration from the fresco on the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel, painted by Michelangelo, in which God touches Adam’s extended hand to give him life. It also symbolises the memory and the passing on of knowledge.
