If Fossil were personified it would be intrepid, rugged, outdoorsy and free-spirited. Inspired by nature, vintage and wholesome American living, this laid back lifestyle brand appeals to those who don’t take high fashion too seriously and value comfort over glitz.
Although the Fossil label encompasses many things, it is perhaps their watches that we know them best for in the UK. You won’t find extortionate pricing and masses of bling in the Fossil watch collection, but you will find a breadth of choice and simple and fun styles.
There are Fossil watches for men and women. Fossil men’s watches err on the right side of chunky, with lots of brown leather, aluminium linked bracelet styles and textured fabric straps. The majority of the men’s collection looks outdoorsy and casual, however there are a few smart wristpieces. Examples include; Fossil Watch FS4156 – a sleek, highly polished aluminium style with a stand out black face and a single diamante stone at 12’o clock and Fossil Watch CH2602 – a good looking style with a mesh bracelet strap, a large round face with chunky detailing and a chronograph.
Designer Phillip Starck has also created wristwear exclusively for Fossil. The Crystal Starck Digital PH1100 showcases the first transparent LCD watch face and looks contemporary, innovative and very stylish.
Fossil watches for women are a blend of rugged and sophisticated. There are many pieces with thick brown leather straps, some with floral detailing and exposed stitching, delicate wristwatches in highly polished aluminium and gold plate and chunky bracelet styles in hardened polycarbonate with a smattering diamante.
Overall, Fossil watches offer lots of choice at exceptionally attractive prices and in this current climate that’s nothing to be sniffed at!
