Swiss Rolex replica watches exports varied hardly at all in relation to April 2014. Their total value was 1.8 billion francs (-0.8%). The good showing in March was therefore partially offset. The cumulative result since January remains focused on consolidation, with a variation of +2.1%.
Precious metal cheap Replica Rolex Day Date watches, particularly gold, showed a marked decline, clearly dragging down the overall result. On the plus side, bimetallic timepieces made the strongest positive contribution, while steel stagnated. Volumes showed a more pleasing trend, thanks mainly to steel and the category of other metals.
Growth was concentrated in the segment of replica Rolex watches for sale costing less than 200 francs (export price) where the number of timepieces increased by 7.9%. Between 200 and 3,000 francs, downturns were in the order of -7%. Timepieces costing more than 3,000 francs were not a driving force in April and their value was down slightly.
While there were few declines on main markets, those in evidence were significant. Not least Hong Kong, where the decline in exports seems to be aligned with the reality of local sales. The United States continued its steady and ultimately positive trend. China recorded particularly strong growth, albeit distorted in all likelihood by temporary exports. Ignoring these inputs, the result would be in the region of +10%. Japan registered a decline, though less steep than on other markets. An unfavourable base effect due to an excellent 2014 is a key factor in this result. In Europe, Italy and France recorded strong growth.
