Swatch Group Maintains Strong Sales Momentum

According to data recently released by the world’s largest watch manufacturer, the Swiss Swatch Group, the group’s 2013 sales reached 8.817 billion Swiss francs (approximately $ 9.7 billion), an increase of 8.3 over the previous year %. Although this sales failed to meet the previously set target of 9 billion Swiss francs (about 9.9 billion US dollars), it still set a new record. Among them, the group’s watch and jewellery division performed particularly strongly, with sales increasing by 8.6% to 8.532 billion Swiss francs (about $ 9.4 billion).

 The Swatch Group said that the outstanding sales performance is mainly due to its strong brand effect and extensive distribution and retail network. The failure to achieve sales was mainly due to the continued overvaluation of the Swiss franc and the sharp decline in the exchange rate of the Japanese yen and the US dollar, which adversely affected revenue. The group will announce other important data such as 2013 earnings results on January 20.

For sales prospects in 2014, Swatch Group stated that sales of all its brands were better in the first few days of January, which is a favorable start. However, due to a recent fire at the core component production plant of the group, market analysts believe that the Swiss national watch industry may be affected. Swatch CEO Nick Hayek said that the fire could cause the production of certain components to stall for several weeks, and watch manufacturers relying on Swatch power movements were even more affected.

沃 The Swatch Group owns many brands including Omega, Radar, Longines, Tissot, etc., and is also a world-renowned supplier of watch components. In addition to the mechanical power movements produced by Swatch, the factory also supplies other major watch manufacturers in Switzerland, such as Louis Vuitton [Weibo], which owns brands such as TAG Heuer and Hengbao.

Which Is The Best Domestic Watch Brand In 2016 What Is The Domestic Watch Brand Ranking

Watches and clocks originate from Switzerland. At the same time, Swiss watches and clocks also represent the world’s highest watch manufacturing technology. However, China’s watch manufacturing is relatively late, and it is difficult to reach the international leading level. At present, it is only in the imitation stage. But this does not mean that domestic watches are useless. Domestic watches still have a lot of advantages. So which domestic watch brand is good, what is the 2016 domestic watch brand list? Today, let the watch home lead you to find out.
   At present, there are many domestic watch brands, including well-known brands: Fiyta, Seagull, Rossini, Shanghai, Beijing, Ebo, and Tianwang. Among them, Seagull Watch, Shanghai Watch and Beijing Watch should be the earliest among domestic watches, and have been praised by national leaders many times. As for the ranking, in fact, the ranking of domestic watches is not as clear as that of Swiss watches. More often, it depends on the brand’s watchmaking technology and popularity.
Fiyta
   Shenzhen Fiyta (Group) Co., Ltd. was established in 1987. It is the only watch company listed in the country. After years of hard work, it has grown into a flagship watch company in China, integrating watch research and development, design, manufacturing and sales. With the famous brand of ‘Fiyta’ and the commercial brand of ‘Hengli’, the marketing network covers the whole country and extends to foreign countries.

   Fiyta’s professional watch brand has accompanied Chinese astronauts to battle space for many times, and has achieved watch legends with its outstanding performance. Fiyta watches present exquisite craftsmanship, ingenious design, and record the perfect moment in life for tasters. The product style ahead of the trend, while interpreting the classic watch culture, also conveys the perception of time and the proposition of life.

   Tianjin Seagull Watch Group Co., Ltd. is an enterprise group consisting of sixteen watch professional manufacturers and four joint ventures, with Tianjin Watch Factory as the main body. The total assets of the group: 96.747 million yuan, the total number of employees registered in the group: 9,955. The company’s current products are composed of diversified series of products such as manufacturing mechanical watches, electronic watches, quartz clocks, special clocks (including architectural clocks) and defense machinery timing products, precision machining and electronic device processing.

   After the birth of China’s first watch in Tianjin in 1955, the company announced its establishment and repeatedly set milestones for the Chinese national watch industry; China’s first electronic watch, the first independent (self-designed) mechanical watch (Dongfeng Watch) and The first women’s watches that met international standards were born here. At the same time, Tianjin Watch Factory and Hong Kong Huacheng Watch Co., Ltd. jointly created China’s first export watch (Seagull Watch).

Since then, nearly a hundred products such as multi-level and multi-variety two series (men’s and women’s) single and dual calendar automatic watches have continuously enriched the company’s technology reserve and main product system, and the company and its products have repeatedly won awards.
Rossini
   In July 1984, as the earliest Sino-foreign joint venture established in China’s watch industry, Rossini was born under the economic background of oversupply of watch products with a price of 3.1 million US dollars. In the early days of the business, the company introduced a full set of Swiss-made gold-plated case equipment and processing technology, relying on advanced technology to produce high-end watch cases that are matched with domestic and foreign watches. enterprise.

In the 1970s, Shanghai brand watches had to be purchased by ticket. After more than thirty years, watches were everywhere. The Shanghai brand watch scene was no longer, and successful men extended their hands to old foreign brands such as Vacheron Constantin, Rolex, and Omega. Those who like to compose music also pay attention to limited editions such as gold shell, diamonds and sapphire glass. However, Feng Shui is taking turns. In the entertainment circle of Hong Kong and Taiwan, Shanghai brand watches have been sought after, and there is no lack of fans among the young people in the Mainland.

It is believed that in the years to come, domestic watch brands will make persistent efforts under the efforts of a new generation of Chinese watchmakers and create glory belonging to Chinese watchmaking.
