  • Richemont, owner of luxury jewelers and watchmakers like Cartier and IWC, won a momentous infringement case against a company that registered the trademark for Vacheron Constantin — Richemont's oldest watch brand — in Russia and sold clothes under that label.

"This is a landmark case with worldwide implications," said Richemont chief counsel Frederick Mostert. [Material World] Photo: Natalia Vodianova walks during Stella McCartney's Fall 2012 show.
