BASEL, Switzerland — Facing a sharp slowdown in growth following a record 2012, watch brands pulled out the stops at Baselworld.
The world’s biggest watch and jewelry fair, totally redesigned after a three-year renovation, drew a record 122,000 visitors between March 27 and April 3, up 17 percent versus 2012. An unprecedented 3,610 journalists were accredited for the event, up 9 percent from the previous 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.
