PARIS — The watch sector may be out of the doldrums, but on the eve of Baselworld 2011, one thing is clear: Uncertainty is the “new normal.”
Despite a roaring start to the year for exports of Swiss timepieces, talk at the annual watch and jewelry fair that starts today and runs through March 31 is likely to turn to gloomier subjects: the earthquake, tsunami and nuclear crisis in Japan; political turmoil in the Middle East, and a record high Swiss franc, to name just a few.
