The biggest increases were in the Middle East (up 17%) and China (11%), but strong sales were also achieved in Germany, Japan and Canada.

The new jobs will be created at the firm's UK centre in Goodwood, Sussex, mainly in manufacturing roles.

The company said 2013 was another record year for requests to personalise models, ranging from the inclusion of jewellery boxes and fridges to a family crest.
