GENVE (AFN) – The Swiss producer of luxury goods Richemont has done good business around the holidays. The parent company of jewelery and watchmaker Cartier saw sales last month increase by 5 percent to 3.1 billion euros. Especially exclusive jewelry were in a hurry, the company reported Thursday.
Where revenue fell in Europe in the first six months of the broken fiscal year, a growth of 3 percent was observed in October to December. Especially in the UK, both tourists and the British themselves rolled the money back. In Asia, sales increased by 10 percent, mainly thanks to China and South Korea.
