LONDON — Compagnie Financière Richemont plans to lay off up to 70 people at the high-end Swiss watch manufacturer Manufacture Roger Dubuis SA, which it acquired in August.
A Richemont spokesman said Friday the layoffs were not “recession-driven,” but rather the result of a strategy to downsize the workforce. “When we purchased it last August, Roger Dubuis was an oversize company, one that had grown very quickly. We’re simply scaling back,” he said.

"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.
