I purchased this watch for my grandson as a high school graduation gift and he loves it. This was over two years ago and he wears it everyday to work and to his college classes. I will purchase another Fossil watch for him when he graduates college next year.
My husband loves fossil watches. For our one year anniversary, I bought him this watch. He loves it and it has held up well. I would recommend this to anyone who is looking for a clean looking watch with a comfortable leather strap.
When I first took it out of the box the watch seemed cheap, light and not as substantial as I thought it would be. Yes, I know it's a Fossil and not a Rolex: I've owned dozens of Fossils so I have reasonable expectations when it comes to these watches. Still, I was less than thrilled on first impression. I realized that part of the issue was the very thin leather wrist band. I replaced the original band with a larger silicone band, and now the watch feels more athletic and sturdy. It now looks good on the wrist. It is clearly modeled after Tag Heuer's "Monaco", so it is not a small watch. But it is not a huge monstrosity either. This watch has gone into my daily watch rotation.
I wanted to get a new watch for my boyfriend that was fancy but not too flashy. He doesn't typically wear a watch but he had casually mentioned, several times, that he was thinking about getting a nice watch. I found this Fossil watch, after much searching for just the right one, and he absolutely loves it.
