This is my first Fossil watch. I'll admit that I mainly got it for the cosmetics, which are stunning and very unique. Could be why this model is impossible to find now, but I digress.
I didn't wear it the last six months because I was rocking my Omega and kind of forgot about it, if that makes any sense (I own a lot of watches). Today I decided to start wearing it again. I anticipated I'd have to reset it forward or backward a good chunk of time, or maybe even need to replace the battery. That's always been my experience with basically any watch that you haven't worn for months on end.
Well alrighty then. I pulled it out of the box and looked at the time on my cellphone, which is the most accurate time the average person is going to get short of the NASA Aeronautics Lab or something along those lines. 3:00 PM on the dot (it only shows minutes, not seconds). That's easy enough, I thought, and looked at the watch dial so I could reset it.
The time? 3:00 PM and 10 seconds. EXACTLY. Damn!
I literally looked at the hands two or three times to see if it was for real. It was. I don't know about you, but I found that extremely impressive. I've owned many medium- to high end battery-powered and winding watches, but not one of them has ever been anything close to that accurate. Even my Omega Seamaster gains 30 seconds a week or so.
I don't know if this is par for the course with Fossils
— although I somehow doubt that many $300 watches are known for that degree of accuracy — or if it's just a lucky fluke. Either way, now I'm even happier I bought it. I love this watch!
Just thought I'd share that.
