LONDON — Robust jewelry sales and stronger demand in Europe and Mainland China helped Compagnie Financière Richemont outstrip analysts' projections and post a 5.7 percent uptick in third-quarter sales to 3.09 billion euros, or $3.34 billion.
Richemont, parent of Cartier, IWC and Dunhill, saw sales growth in all regions, with the exception of Europe, which was down 1 percent at actual rates, but up three percent at constant exchange rates. Figures are converted at average exchange rates for the three months to Dec. 31.

"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
