The foremost manufacturer of high-quality goods in the world, LVMH Mot Hennessy Louis Vuitton, reported a great start to the year with robust sales growth across all of its business segments, including Watches & Jewellery, for the first quarter of 2023.
The overall group revenue was €21 billion, up by 17% compared to the same period in 2022, despite the geopolitical and economic uncertainty present globally. The company’s success was largely driven by strong demand from local customers and international travellers in Europe and Japan, while the US had steady growth, and Asia experienced a significant rebound following the lifting of health restrictions.
The Watches & Jewellery business group had an excellent performance with Tiffany & Co. showing strong growth and Bulgari celebrating the 75th anniversary of its iconic Serpenti line. Chaumet created a new engagement program, Echo Culture Awards, to enrich its longstanding roots in art and culture.
