LONDON — Compagnie Financière Richemont plans to lay off up to 70 people at the high-end Swiss watch manufacturer Manufacture Roger Dubuis SA, which it acquired in August.
A Richemont spokesman said Friday the layoffs were not “recession-driven,” but rather the result of a strategy to downsize the workforce. “When we purchased it last August, Roger Dubuis was an oversize company, one that had grown very quickly. We’re simply scaling back,” he said.

"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)
