LVMH Watch & Jewellery Division Outperforms in First Quarter of 2017 Eta Movement Replica Watches


The dial is matte black with black applied markers and black luminescent paint, which is known for having a rather faint glow. The 7:00 marker is the only one that is Arabic and once again, set with black diamonds. The watch images nevertheless, make the palms seem to be brushed metal without plating, which should enhance legibility in some light conditions.The case of the Hublot Big Bang Las Vegas Special Edition watches are completed by stainless steel pushers and crown (black PVD naturally) and also a black (surprise) composite resin for the lugs. The situation checks in at 44mm wide by 14.6mm thick — well sized for people to observe the bling. It’s also rated to 100m water resistance so you can keep it on while you take a dip at the hotel pool.The Hublot Big Bang Las Vegas Special Edition watches are restricted runs — 21 pieces for the all-ceramic instance (Ref. 301. CI.1110. HR.LVB17), 1 bit only for the situation with baguette cut diamonds (Ref. 301. CI.1110. HR.0900. LVB17), and 7 pieces every day for the remaining two (Ref. 301. CI.1110. HR.1100. 301. CI.1110. HR.1700. LVB17).

Consensus amongst many industry insiders at Baselworld 2017 was that the stable of watch and jewellery names owned by LVMH – Bulgari, Hublot, TAG Heuer and Zenith – are doing well relative to their peers. That appears to have been borne out by the luxury group’s first quarter results for 2017, with Bulgari and TAG Heuer singled out for “market share gains”.

Quarterly revenue at the luxury powerhouse that owns Louis Vuitton (its Parisian art museum designed by Frank Gehry is pictured above) rose 13% at constant exchange rates, while its watch and jewellery division saw an 11% rise in sales. In more ordinary times that might seem a meagre figure, but times are tough for the luxury watch business.

In comparison, LVMH rival Richemont’s most recent quarter (until December 2016) was less impressive, perhaps explaining the management overhaul earlier this year. The Swiss group that owns watchmakers like IWC and Panerai saw group sales rise only 6%, helped by its jewellery business, with the watchmaking division seeing a dip of 2%.

That being said, the sales growth at LVMH comes off from a low base. Last year the group recorded revenue growth of just 6%, with the figure for the watch and jewellery division being 5%. It prudently notes in the announcement: “The trend currently observed cannot reasonably be extrapolated for the full year.”
