They decide on the winners of the INHORGENTA AWARD: Top-class with industry experts and prominent faces, the jury selects the best jewelery, watches and designers of the year.
The first jury members are determined: Get to know them! It remains exciting: shortly we will reveal the secret about other members.
Watch expert and author
Gisbert is a journalist and author from Munich and has been writing about watches since 1981. He has published around 30 books on timepieces, including Rolex – The Watch Book. He is also co-founder and owner of the website uhrenkosmos.com.
Director of Special Projects
A great-granddaughter of Peter Carl Fabergé, Sarah, like her late father Theo has always been interested in the arts. A creative at heart, she pursued a career in management training and development until she decided to follow in her father’s footsteps when invited to design and approve designs for a company called the Saint Petersburg Collection.
Sarah maintained both careers until 2007 when she resigned from the Saint Petersburg Collection to work solely with Fabergé Limited with the aim of helping to resurrect and reposition Fabergé as a creator of high and fine jewellery and objet. Her son Joshua is a member of Fabergé’s Sales Team. A keen supporter of the artisan and individual craftsmanship, Sarah is a Liveryman of the Worshipful Company of Turners of London. This ancient Guild supports the craft of turning on a lathe and aims to raise the profile of this unique art through its Wizardry in Wood Exhibitions and Competitions.
“As a founding member of the Fabergé Heritage Council, I work closely with the Fabergé team and, as an ambassador for the Company, represent Fabergé at a variety of events”.
Member of the Executive Board at WEMPE
As a member of the Wempe management board, Anja is a well-known major figure in the jewelry and watch industry. No other woman is quite as synonymous with retailing success as the native of Hamburg.
Managing Director Bikini Berlin
Antje Leinemann is Managing Director of BHG Berlin Immobilien GmbH & Co. KG, a subsidiary of Bayerische Hausbau and owner of the Bikini Berlin ensemble. Prior to this, she was Managing Director of various branches of Karstadt Warenhaus GmbH in Berlin and Hamburg for over 20 years, where she was most recently Regional Sales Director responsible for the East region with a total of 19 branches.

Lifestyle Director of the magazines "Capital" and "Business Punk"
Siems Luckwaldt is Lifestyle Director of the magazines "Capital" and "Business Punk," where, in addition to fashion, design and travel topics, he devotes himself primarily to the watch industry - in interviews, photo productions and online features. In 2021, the Capital Watch Award, which he initiated, also took place for the fourth time and honors the best watch models of the year. The Hamburg native has already written for almost every (stylish) magazine in his nearly 25-year media career. Currently, he is looking at grazing sheep and cheeky pheasants while writing his texts - somewhere in the countryside of Schleswig-Holstein.
