You’ve very likely heard of Fossil watches, but do you know if they’re good quality or not?
Fossil came to life in 1984 and they have a cast-iron reputation for producing some really high-quality fashion items. This brand does a lot more than watches. The other brands that fall under the Fossil name include Michael Kors, DKNY, Burberry and Marc Jacobs. That’s a great sign that you can be confident in the quality!
The best mark of a brand’s quality can be seen in what the actual customers are saying. People with a Fossil watch on their wrist love them. They get many years of use out of them, too. This is what you get out of watches made from only the best materials.
What level of quality are Fossil watches?
Fossil watches are very good quality. Regardless of your budget, there will be one for you. No matter which you go for, you can rely on it being made of high-grade materials.
Most Fossil watches are stainless steel. This is durable. But if you do scratch it, it’s easily repaired too. Stainless steel is easy to buff. They also offer leather and rubber options when it comes to the bands.
Fossil watches are a great gift option, rather than buying one for yourself. Saying that, there is a Swiss collection for those who are into watch collecting.
No matter if you’re into sporty or dress watches, there’s something for you (or your loved one).
This collection is all about the classics. They’re sophisticated and fit in well in both casual and formal situations.
They have Roman numerals and come with either leather or stainless steel wristbands. They’re a real class act.
A Nate is an over-sized piece with inspiration from the military. They make a striking statement. Typically all-black or matte black. The design is modern. Usually made from stainless steel with the occasional leather band. They’re very bold.
A Modern Machine is bold like a Nate, but durable as hell. They usually have a chronograph with sub-dials on the face. They typically have a silicone wristband too.
A Townsman has a vintage vibe. Think 50s America.
These watches are perfect for completing a professional business look. They come with tan leather bands and have a sleek stainless steel case. Perfect for anyone who likes all things retro.

This collection is smaller and inspired by the auto-sports world of the 60s. There are a lot of sports-related options in this line and they’re probably the most masculine of them all.

This is the best line you can find from Fossil. All the materials are the best quality you’ll find for their price range. The designs are timeless classics and they ooze fine craftsmanship.
Now, let’s take a look at 5 of the best Fossil watches for the man in your life.
This is a classic Fossil look. One of the best-selling watches they do.
It comes with a beautiful tan leather cuff band with 45mm stainless steel case, this is an adaptable look.
Inside is quartz movement and a chronograph. It has three sub-dials giving you seconds, minutes and hours. It’s also water-resistant to 100m which is very useful if you like snorkelling or even the convenience of not having to take it off to bathe.
You even get this in a retro-looking box!
This is a stylish option for the office. It’s a stainless steel quartz offering with chronograph and analoge display.
The bezel resembles a coin edge and the face is both modern and masculine. The dial itself is protected by a durable mineral crystal.
It’s water-resistant to 50m so it’s OK to bathe in and maybe some indoor swimming.
This quartz chronograph timepiece is immediately attention-grabbing in matte black. It’s a mix of stainless steel with a rubber band. Perfect if you’re not into leather. It’s extremely comfortable on the wrist and the case is durable.
The bezel has a knurl effect which makes it even bolder and the sub-dials really stand out with their blue accents.
The dial is protected with the same mineral crystal, which will be resistant to mild bumps. It’s also conveniently water-resistant to 50m.
If you love the classic look, you’ll love the Grant. It has a sleek stainless steel case and supple tan leather brand. The hands are clear and the design is subtle but masculine. With a crisp white shirt, this would look incredible.
Inside it has quartz movement and on the face you’ll find chronograph sub-dials. It has a retro design that will remain timeless.
Just like its siblings, it offers you 50m of water-resistance.
Heading back to the Nate collection simply because it’s so sophisticated it has a right to appear twice.
This all-black beast has a black stainless steel base and matching black leather band. The look was inspired by the military, and it shows.
It offers the same quartz movements and chronograph subdials. It’s functional as well as reliable. The case itself is oversized at 50mm to emphasise the rugged look as well as improving readability.
Again, it offers 50m water-resistance so you don’t have to be too careful about remembering to take it off. Just don’t go diving in it.
It certainly makes a bold statement.
