Sales increased by 10 per cent in the UK and Europe, driven by the opening of 16 new stores.

In the US, revenue increased by 52 per cent to £653 million ($AU1.24 billion). Watches of Switzerland CEO Brian Duffy said this market now represents more than 40 per cent of total revenue.

“Luxury watch sales increased 28 per cent year-on-year, representing 87 per cent of group revenue,” he said.

“Luxury jewellery sales increased at a more modest 10 per cent in the year, reflecting a tougher macroeconomic backdrop and focus on full-price sales. Following two years of exceptional performance, sales are significantly ahead of plan.”

In 2024, the company will debut a flagship Rolex store on London’s Old Bond Street and continue a joint venture with watch brand Audemars Piguet.

The company expects revenue of between £1.65 billion ($AU3.15 billion) and £1.7 billion ($AU3.24 billion) for the full year.
