"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 - Walter von Känel
Bonded with Longines since 50 years. Began his career in the sales department, but thanks to his passion, skills and strong personality, he managed to climb the corporate ladder fast and reach the position of the boos back in 1988. He receives the Special Jury Prize not for his imposing work span at one manufacturer, but for his highly impressive achievements, keeping Longines at the top of his market segment and, preserving its DNA and managing to grab younger generations interest in the beauty of wristwatches.
