Johannesburg - Shares of luxury goods maker Richemont [JSE:CFR] rose after Swiss watchmaker Swatch maintains 2012 sales target despite concerns about cooling Chinese demand.

At 08:20 GMT, Richemont top gainer among Johannesburg blue chips, adding over 3% to R43.65. Its gains were in tandem with those of Swatch in Switzerland.

Swatch's chief executive Nick Hayek backed his 2012 sales target of 8 billion Swiss francs ($8.1bn) and downplayed concern Chinese demand for luxury watches may be cooling in a newspaper interview published late on Tuesday.

Worries persist that Chinese demand for the highest-priced segment of luxury goods, such as watches, will hit Swatch and rival Richemont.
