About the Prize – Louis Vuitton Watch Prize for Independent Creatives


Comprised of qualified and recognized authorities in the watchmaking world, a Committee of International Experts evaluates the shortlisted candidates in order to select five finalists based on design, creativity, innovation, craftsmanship, and technical complexity. These finalists are then called on to present their creation for the final round. The Jury auditions the finalists and votes for the winner who will be announced during a special award ceremony at the beginning of 2024.
