Fossil is an American fashion brand that is well-known for its watches, as well as other accessories and fashion products.
Founded in 1984 by brothers Tom and Kosta Kartsotis, in Richardson, Texas, USA, the company initially focused on importing and selling fashion watches, primarily designed to resemble vintage timepieces.
Fossil's product range includes a wide variety of watches, including analog, digital, and hybrid smartwatches. They offer watches for both men and women, catering to various styles and preferences. In addition to watches, Fossil produces other accessories eg. handbags, wallets, jewelry, and sunglasses.
Fossil's design philosophy often revolves around vintage aesthetics and a blend of classic and modern elements. Many of their watches have a distinctive retro-inspired look.
Fossil has also entered the smartwatch market with its Fossil Q line of smartwatches. These are hybrid watches that combine traditional watch design with smart features like activity tracking, notifications, and smartphone connectivity.
Fossil owns and operates several watch and accessory brands. Some of the watch brands under the Fossil Group include Fossil itself, Skagen (known for its minimalist Danish design), Michael Kors, Armani Exchange, Diesel, and more.
Fossil watches are generally considered to be in the affordable to mid-range price bracket. They use a variety of materials, including stainless steel, leather, and other durable materials, in their watch designs.
Fossil has collaborated with various fashion and pop culture brands to create limited-edition and themed watches. These collaborations often result in unique and collectible timepieces.
This particular model, BG-2182 is an exciting model to own. It's all-black matt dial with dagger hands and digital seconds in the background coupled with a simplistic yet eye-catching Oversized UFO silver case and retro-genuine leather strap with padding, makes its presence felt and extremely comfortable to wear.
This is a unique layout because the minute and hour hands are analog whereas the seconds are digital.
A general servicing was conducted and a new battery installed thereby providing peace of mind to the owner for the next few years at the very least.
Due to its size, it is well suited for men and the modern women, and goes extremely well with jeans and casual wear.
The price range is from S$ 127.00 to S$ 298.00 on various auction / online sites from horrible, to un-serviced, to "as is," to serviced, to refurbished models. Do note that the mentioned prices may / do not include currency conversions, commissions, taxes and freight costs etc.
This serviced, buffed and with battery changed timepiece is being sold for S$ 158.00 which is very reasonable. The watch will come with an EVA zipper pouch.
