"Special Jury Prize" statuette goes to the person or institution that brought the greatest - in the jury opinion - contribution to the development of watchmaking.

Winner - Jean-Christophe Babin (Bulgari)
Luxury good go by their own rules but transforming a jewelry brand into a respected player in watchmaking is one hell of a task. Jean-Christophe Babin made Bulgari a full-fledged player of the watch industry, combining Italian temper and brilliance of design with Swiss craftsmanship. Octo Finissimo will forever have its place among icons of watchmaking, and if that's not impressive enough, Babin faced the tremulous times and initiated the Geneva Watch Days - new way for doing an industry fair that just like Bulgari timepieces, might as well write a new chapter in the history of making watches.
