Auction houses under the microscope

The recent spring sales in Geneva certainly lived up to expectations, particularly at Christie's. At the end of an eight-hour marathon, the auction house garnered a total CHF 30.3 million (EUR 25.5 million), its second highest ever result including record prices for two Breguet timepieces. The international head of Christie's watch department, Aurel Bacs, spoke enthusiastically about the depth of bidding with buyers from 42 different countries, and the strong presence of private collectors who took eight of the day's top ten sales.

Swiss watchmaking in April 2012: growth loses momentum

The value of Swiss watchmaking exports reached 1.7 billion francs in April. The 7.9% growth calculated against the month of April 2011 reflected a slowdown following an excellent first quarter. This increase is less pronounced but still robust. It suffered in particular from the unfavourable base effect, since April 2011 had seen a progression in excess of 30%. Despite this slowdown, April still achieved the highest value in absolute terms since the beginning of the year.
