BASEL, Switzerland — The crowds thronging the Blancpain stand at the Baselworld watch and jewelry trade fair were probably hoping to catch a glimpse of its talked-about L-evolution Tourbillon Grande Date. The fact that there was a black Lamborghini Gallardo parked in the booth was just icing on the cake.
The sleek road car, closely based on the model featured in the Super Trofeo racing competitions, was evidence of the natural synergy between the worlds of sports and timepieces, which produced another slew of themed or limited edition items at the Swiss event.

"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.
