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.

"I was driving back on Saturday afternoon from the beach, and I just saw this sign saying 'Skydiving for $95.' And I was like, I can't not sky dive for $95," says Tom Bateman about a moment in Hawaii while shooting "Snatched." #wwdeye (📷: @vsteves; Interview by @ktauer; Styled by @thealexbadia)
