PARIS — Swiss watch exports declined 3.1 percent in June, due primarily to gold timepieces, which reported a double-digit fall, and partially because of one less working day in the month than in 2012, the Federation of the Swiss Watch Industry reported.
Foreign sales of Swiss timepieces in the month reached 1.9 billion Swiss francs, or $2.03 billion, according to the federation. This followed a 3.9 percent fall in May and a 5.7 percent increase in April.

"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
