Watchfinder, the dealer in pre-owned luxury watches that’s owned by Richemont, said it suffered a data breach that may have disclosed customer information.

The UK-based company, which sells watches online and in retail outlets, “recently discovered unauthorised access to a user account belonging to one of our employees,” its chief executive officer, Arjen van de Vall, said in an email to clients and customers.
