Thanks. The last part (Jury Statement) was already quoted in the OP's link but here it is in full in the above link by which I have to navigate and find the Apple Watch page out of the thousands other technologies who won their awards.

Apple Watch
Watch
Recognized with the iF DESIGN AWARD 2015, Discipline Product - gold
Apple Watch features revolutionary new technologies, a pioneering interface, and a design that honors the rich tradition of watchmaking. Apple Watch’s design and interface were created specifically for a smaller device. The Digital Crown is an innovative way to navigate, the display features Force Touch, which senses the difference between a tap and a press, and the Taptic Engine enables a new vocabulary of notifications you can both hear and feel. The beautifully designed and durable Apple Watch enclosures are crafted from custom alloys of polished or space black stainless steel, space gray or silver anodized aluminum, and 18-karat gold.

Jury-Statement
The idea of combining classic materials such as leather and metal with state-of-the-art technology to create a very individual fashion accessory has resulted in a delightful product offering a holistic user experience. The Apple Watch scores highly for each design detail and is an altogether extraordinary piece of design. For us, it is already an icon.

Indeed, the Digital Crown, Force Touch and Taptic Engine plus it's stunning design & beauty, FTW.

Woz said it is an art. The jury said it is already an icon. We can probable add them in the thread title and shove it to ... nvm, jk. I am having a great day. :D
