Fossil Mechanical/Casual Watches Review: Analog, Automatic, Skeleton, Twist

Updated on January 6, 2015

Mechanical and Casual

Fossil Mechanical Men's and Fossil Casual Ladies are two different collections that have one important thing in common: a focus on a single stylistic feature. In Fossil Mechanical it's the mechanical movements, presented as a decorative element. In Fossil Casual it's the case and bracelet design – the use of variously shaped links and lugs to create fashionably conscious watches.

Mechanical

These watches draw ideas from high-end watchmakers. The timers include several subdials, a tourbillon, a skeleton open worked dial and other similar features that distinguish known Swiss brands.

The concept behind the designs is to display the beauty and the craftsmanship of the inner mechanism, a sanctum many guys feel drawn to. The brand makes this happen without the need to dismantle (and possibly ruin) the watch. The collection employs both bracelets and straps.

Caual

Fossil Casual is a Ladies collection without reservations. The cases of the watches were reduced to match the size of the bracelet links, resulting in uniform, harmonious aesthetic appearance.

This collection bring in more down to earth style that perhaps was lacking in Fossil Stark and Fossil Trend collections. Dials incorporate soft colors (pink and blue) and some bracelets combine leather with metal.

Movement & Prices

Both collections feature powerful movements (quartz analog, twist – quartz plus automatic self-winding) that allow the company to provide 11 years of (limited) warranty. All watches are water resistant up to 5 ATM. Prices range from $65 to $200. Trusted eBay sellers offer discounts of up to 50% (new and used pieces).

Important Words on Fossil

Overall, Fossil offer bright, colorful, optimistic and inspirational wrist watches that brim with zest, and are affordable (most watches are available for less than $100).

Different timepieces project different qualities and characteristics, depending on the collection – but all possess a unique sense of chique
