China’s tough and targeted lock down has seen Covid-19 all-but eradicated in the country, and its economy is already motoring again.

It became the biggest market in the world for luxury watches in June, according to export figures, as manufacturers divert stock to their strongest-performing stores.

Watches & Wonders will take place from September 9 to 13 in Shanghai as a showcase mainly for Richemont brands.

A. Lange & Söhne, Baume & Mercier, Cartier, IWC Schaffhausen, Jaeger-LeCoultre, Panerai, Parmigiani Fleurier, Piaget, Purnell, Roger Dubuis and Vacheron Constantin have confirmed they will participate.
