Complete List Of Watchstars Winners 2015/2016
The Watchstars awards were created in 2014 by Ebner Verlag, the parent company of Germany’s Chronos and Uhren-Magazin as well as the U.S. publication Watch Time. Ebner also has a stake in the very good blog Fratello Watches.
The fun thing about Watchstars is that its jury comprises a very large panel of international writers and journalists. It is the massive size of this jury that often produces interesting results.
The 2015/2016 edition of Watchstars just came to a close and the winners in five categories were announced as follows.
