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.

"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)
