The value of Swiss watch exports almost attained CHF 2 billion in July. Strong growth (+15.4%) resulted in a particularly high level for this period of the year. The sector therefore shows no obvious sign of losing its momentum in terms of exports, despite what was expected. This trend will be monitored closely at a time when some market segments have already registered a slowdown.
The Swiss watch industry continued to record strong growth during the first half of 2012 while maintaining a brisk pace. The excellent results for 2011 have been surpassed with ease and the sector appears to be showing no signs of weakness. The total value of exports by Swiss watch manufacturers amounted to 10.1 billion francs in six months. The ten billion franc mark has therefore been exceeded before the middle of the year, which is a first. This result represents an increase of 16.4% compared to 2011.
