As the world’s major watch brands are spreading out and diversifying their portfolios to adapt to volatile market conditions, Baselworld, the bellwether Swiss watch and jewelry fair, is investing heavily in its own future.
After eight years of plotting and developing, the fair unveils its new look today. Set in an enlarged hall designed by Herzog & de Meuron, the Swiss architect team that gave London’s Tate Modern its distinctive look, the fair boasts 1.52 million square feet, 6,300 tons of steel structure and 13 miles of booth facades. It runs through May 2.

"It's really hard sometimes. I think I have a reputation for being really tough and aggressive and pushy but I really am a very shy person who wants to be liked, and that's the conflict constantly. There's something that takes hold - I want people to like me, I don't want to be mean - but if I see something that just cries out to be answered, I go for it," says renowned NBC News correspondent Andrea Mitchell.
