PARIS — Swiss watch exports rose 16 percent in November, fueled by continued strong demand in Asia, which made up for a slowdown in demand in the United States and some European markets.
Foreign sales of Swiss timepieces totaled 2.05 billion Swiss francs, or $2.27 billion at average exchange rates for the period, the Federation of the Swiss Watch Industry said. That brought the cumulative total for January to November to 17.4 billion Swiss francs, or $19.8 billion, up 19 percent year-on-year.

"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.
