Swiss watch exports first half 2012: exports still climbing steeply

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.

Swiss watchmaking in May 2012: growth remains very strong

The excellent result for May 2011 was comfortably exceeded. Swiss watch exports increased by 16.2% last May to a level of 1.9 billion francs. This growth is in phase with the level at the beginning of the year and seems not to have suffered from a very unfavourable base effect, contrary to April. Over the first five months, watch exports were up 15.2% to 8.2 billion francs.
