The Swiss watch industry continues to rebound, with growth of 7.5% over the first 10 months of the year.

According to data from the Federation of the Swiss Watch Industry, exports in October amounted to nearly 2 billion Swiss francs, an increase of 7.2% year-on-year.

In September, exports fell for the first time in more than a year, but last month, watches returned to their growth trajectory.

The three largest Swiss watch markets recorded double-digit growth. Hong Kong grew by 10.3% to 270.5 million Swiss francs ($272.7 million) and the United States increased its export value by 11.1% to 206 million Swiss francs ($207.7 million). In third place, exports to China increased by 24.1% or 184.9 million Swiss francs ($186.4 million).
