Swiss group Richemont, owner of the Cartier, Piaget and Chloé brands, among others, and the third largest luxury group in the world, has reworked the management of its watch brands Jaeger-LeCoultre and Baume & Mercier.
Mr Porter is further expanding its fine watch department with the addition of a curated selection of seven Cartier Watches. The line-up will launch on 5 April, with further launches planned for later this year.
Cartier maker Richemont said on Thursday solid sales growth in the quarter to Dec. 31 was driven by the Asia Pacific region and buoyant jewellery demand, kicking off the luxury goods reporting season on a positive note.
Mobile orders surged across Yoox Net-A-Porter’s sites for Cyber Weekend with the firm saying they accounted for two-thirds of sales on Sunday. And total orders peaked at more one per second on Black Friday.
Luxury goods group Richemont on Friday appointed Jérôme Lambert, currently head of operations, to the newly created role of chief operating officer responsible for the Swiss group's watch and fashion brands.
