The 2021 edition of the Prix Gaïa pays tribute to four watchmaking talents and once again confirms its international significance. Since 1993, this award has been presented in recognition of extraordinary careers in the field of watchmaking, as well as its art and culture. The public ceremony – on prior registration due to the health measures – will take place at 6.30 pm on Thursday 16th September 2021 at the Musée international d’horlogerie (MIH) in La Chaux-de-Fonds, and will be attended by Frédéric Maire, Director of the Cinémathèque suisse. On this occasion, the MIH will once again award the Horizon Gaïa Fellowship, intended for the next generation of researchers.
