ZURICH (Reuters) – Swatch Group reported sales of 3.39 billion Swiss francs ($3.70 billion) during the first six months of 2021, Swiss news agency AWP reported on Monday, up from 2.19 billion francs the company posted a year earlier.

The maker of Longines, Tissot and Omega watches said its net profit increased to 270 million francs, turning around a 308 million franc loss in 2020.

Swatch, which is soon to be relegated from the Swiss blue chip index, did not respond to requests for comment from Reuters.
