11 Feb Why Buy a Fossil Watch?
Fossil watches are a very exciting product on the market in terms of both fashion and technology that they incorporate into their designs. Fossil have now been around since the nineteen eighties and their original products were to make watches but with a ‘retro’ or ‘old school’ look about them. This proved extremely successful with their products and Fossil watches being very popular with the young people of the nineteen ninety’s.
In 1984, Fossil began establishing its stronghold on a chic fashion concept with vintage influences. Blending the old and the new into its watch and eyewear collections gives you a wider range of choices that belong unmistakably to this brand. With dramatic retro styles that take their cue from the heyday of Hollywood in the 1950’s matched to modern proportions and materials, you’re certain to make the right choice with Fossil.
To move company on from the retro look and feel, Fossil then bought a company that was based in Switzerland called Zodiac that were a much more high end designer company, thus giving Fossil the ability to completely redefine their status in the market and they could now compete with the high end watch makers in the market.
When thinking about buying a watch, a person needs to consider that many watch makers in the high streets were not originally watch maker companies but more often than not they were fashion labels. This is not a major issue however when a person is considering where to spend their hard earned money they may want to go with a company that has always been associated with cool, fashionable and quality watches such as Fossil. Also an interesting point is that Fossil actually did a lot of work for many of the other brands and helped them design and produce many watch brands for many famous high street fashion labels. So in effect if someone bought say a Diesel watch many years ago, there was a good chance that at some point Fossil was involved in the manufacturing process.
Fossil watches are a very good product and have years and years of experience to show that they are a durable and can withstand the day to day bangs and scratches that many watches cannot. If a Fossil watch is an option when thinking about purchasing a watch then it really would be worth pursuing and looking at.
Each Fossil watch comes in a complementary watch tin.
Inspired by colorful tins of the 1940s and 1950s, Fossil set out to create its own packaging that people would want to keep and treasure, while still expressing the iconic creativity of the brand. The Fossil watch tin served as a natural extension of the earliest vintage-inspired watch designs, not only in form but also in its ability to deliver the authentic look and feel of the same period.
In today’s market with the high end technology that is now affordably around, Fossil have incorporated some pretty cool Bluetooth technology into a few lines of their watches. In two thousand and six (2006) Bluetooth was finally incorporated into a watch by the teaming up of Sony Erikson and Fossil to design a watch that could pair up with a phone and show the caller identification or caller ID when the phone was being called. So when a call would be coming in the watch would vibrate very lightly to alert the person of the call. Also as mentioned above a person could then check their watch to see who it was that was calling. This kind of feature would be very ideal when in meetings or things of that nature.
In summary a Fossil watch will not only be a very well designed watch but it will also be a very well made watch. Also Fossil watches go outside the box and are constantly looking at new technology to incorporate into the design to differentiate them from their competitors.
