Fossil has always been famous and known for its affordability, reliability and quartz powered watches. Fossil, founded in 1984, typically uses Chinese quartz movements in their timepiece which keeps the production cost low, making it affordable for normal people. But this time, they announced their Swiss made automatic stainless steel watch and tried to move up to the high-end luxury brand styles. Let’s know more about the watch and see how Fossil has reinvented their style and look!
This polished stainless steel automatic beauty features a curved black velvet dial and an exhibition case backwith three-hands (each hour, minute and second respectively) and date window on it. The watch holds a water resistance of 50 meters which means that it is suitable to wear while swimming. The dial is protected by an AR coated sapphire crystal.Inside the Fossil Automatic is a Swiss made STP caliber 1-11 movement with 26 jewels that beats at 28,800 vph with a 46 hour power reserve.
Fossil, since the time it has launched, has always proved to be one of the most trusted brands. With a lot of variety that they offer in watches, people are surely inclined towards it due to several “good” reasons. Fossil has successfully managed to maintain its quality over the years and meeting up to the expectations of its wearer. Be it style, durability or affordability, this brand has always been on top for these features. If we start comparing the Swiss made automatic stainless steel Fossil watch with other luxury brands, then one prominent thing that will pop in your mind is major factor “money”. All the luxury brands using Swiss automatic movement will cost you a real good amount of your savings. Fossil, when compared to those is still a decent option to go for.
Here are some of the features of this Swiss made automatic Fossil watch that will help you know more about the internal mechanism of the watch:
This 38mm dial watch will perfectly fit on your wrist making it look neither too big nor too small for you. The round shape of the case gives it an elegant look that will go with all your outfits, be it formal or casual. 12mm thickness with a stainless steel case material gives this watch a defined and nice look.
With a double press deployant closure and a circumference of 200 +/- 5mm, this silver colored stainless steel strap, gives this watch a very basic yet classy look. A width of 18mm is perfect for any wearer. Stainless steel watch straps are extremely durable and can last the lifetime of a watch if properly maintained.
The automatic movement features a built-in rotor that’s powered by the motion of your wrist—no battery required. If your watch stops ticking, simply turn the crown clockwise until you feel some resistance.
Classic and soothing to the eye in a vintage military sort of way, the designing of the overall watch is very basic and easy-going. The scratch-resistant sapphire crystal glass is one of the strong catching points of the watch.
