Car maker BMW has inked a five-year licence deal with the eyewear group starting on January 1 2020, for the design, production and distribution of eyeglasses and sunglasses for the BMW, BMW M and BMW M Motorsport lines.
Bertrand Delvert, vice president of marketing and communication at Tissot International, succeeds Florence Ollivier-Lamarque as director of the Swatch Group’s French subsidiary, effective from January 1.
Swiss watchmaker Swatch Group is quitting the annual Baselworld watch and jewellery trade fair, said a report on Sunday, calling time on an event that has been a fixture of the luxury industry calendar for a century.
It was good news all the way from Swatch on Tuesday as the watch giant predicted "very positive" growth this year after a surge in 2017. Demand for Swiss watches rose and its affordable fashion watches recovered.
