ZURICH (REUTERS) - Swatch Group said a Dutch court has sentenced Tiffany & Co. to pay it 402 million Swiss francs (S$567 million) in damages in a lawsuit following the end of a collaboration between the two groups.

The Netherlands Arbitration Institute sentenced Tiffany to pay Swatch damages after it pressed claims against the United States (US) jeweller in December 2011, the world's largest watchmaker said in a statement on Sunday.

Swatch said the court had integrally dismissed a counter-claim filed by Tiffany in March 2012.

Tiffany could not immediately be reached for comment.
