Chopard reinforces its watchmaking roots

Chopard’s transformation into fully-integrated, state-of-the-art watch manufacture over the past decade is often overshadowed by the company’s enviable success as a high jewelry company – something that is only reinforced by the fact that it just won the “Jewellery Watch” Prize (for the second year in a row) at Grand Prix d’Horlogerie de Genève last month.

Forecasts for 2014

Experts, analysts and journalists have already delivered their end-of-year forecasts based on Swiss watch exports at September 30th, and predict a fall of 5% in volume terms but an increase in value terms of 2% on 2012.

The segment closest to our heart, namely watches with an export price above CHF 1,500, confirms a rise in exports of 1% in quantity and 2% in value, which indicates a stable market.
