AHCI launches the young talent competition with the patronage of François-Paul Journe.
F.P. Journe and the Académie Horlogère des Créateurs Indépendants have partnered to launch the Young Talent Competition and offer watchmaking apprentices the opportunity to demonstrate their skills by entering this global contest.
In celebration of the AHCI’s 30th anniversary in 2015, the competition has been extended to include 47 watchmaking schools from 14 different countries; and 33 AHCI watchmakers from 11 countries will assess and select the very best. The winning creations will be presented at Baselworld 2015 and will have the privilege of being exhibited alongside the AHCI.
The winners will be announced by François Paul Journe and the AHCI Committee at a press conference in Baselworld’s Osaka Samarkand room on Thursday March 19, 2015. The session will start at 8:45 am.
