SWATCH AG v. Ng Pui Yee


Case details

Plaintiff: SWATCH AG

Defendant: Ng Pui Yee

Case no.: O/006/04

Jurisdiction: United Kingdom

Industry: Fashion

Decision date: 07 Jan, 2004


The opponents’ opposition was based on their ownership of registrations of the mark SWATCH in Classes 18 and 25 in respect of identical and similar goods as those of the applicant. They also claimed use and reputation but while it was accepted that they had a reputation in the mark SWATCH in relation to watches, there was insufficient detailed evidence to show that this reputation extended to bags and clothing.
