Lwould the book inspire the watch? The world of writing has accustomed us to awarding its prizes in a hurry, as evidenced by the sequence of recent weeks: Nobel Prize for Literature on October 6, Goncourt Prize on November 3, Femina Prize on November 7, Medici Prize on November 8. november. The watch industry also had two events in the space of a week, one in France, the other in Switzerland. The Watch of the Year Prize, awarded in ten price categories, got the ball rolling in Paris on November 3, under the leadership of MyWatch and the YouTube channel Frank Sans C.
