    1) isn't the official fossil group page.
    2) check out the URL in the "about" fossil.com.mv (maldives).
    3) Majority of the population of the Maldives follows Islam.
    4) they are 12 HOURS ahead of you...It was posted on the 12th just before noon.
    5) Thanks for the entertainment

    Fossils were my gateway watch. I now have a couple ROLEX, Omega watches. fossils definitely got me into watches. I still buy a new one every year or so

    So What's Not To Like About Fossil?

    I started with Fossil watches as my first regular wrist watch when I was a teenager. I still have the first Fossil Blue that I bought 20'ish years ago. It's actually currently at the watch repair shop getting a new crystal installed. I'll hang on to it for sentimental value forever.

    I also have 3 limited edition Spider-man Fossil watches, they came out in 1994, and I tracked them all down in NIB condition recently. I like them for the Spider-man reference but as far as watches go these are 3 of the cheapest feeling watches I've ever held and defiantly not worth the $75 they were being sold for back in '94 ($120 in todays money adjusted for inflation). I picked them up for around $50 each and they aren't really worth that price either.

    Other than that I don't see myself every buying another Fossil.

    I wouldn't be TaxMan if I didn't tell you that you could donate the watch, and get back an amount on your taxes that could be in excess of what you could sell it for. In the US, you have to
    1) Itemize your deductions (vs taking the standard deduction)
    2) Not exceed your charitable contribution limitation
    to take advantage of this. Being a deduction, your donations reduce taxable income, not tax, so the "in your pocket" impact is going to be (Estimated Value) x (Your Tax Rate). That may be a better option than $10. So instead of heading back into storage rarely (if ever) to be worn again, your old watch may be someone else's treasured possession. Win-Win.

    (Consult a tax professional if you have questions.)

    I used to love Fossil watches as a kid. Probably their excessive advertising that brainwashed me. Good watches, but my tastes have changed. But still good watches.

    Fossil watches sell in volumes. They are nice quartz and mechanical watches with some great designs. And, for many here, it was the brand that was the "gateway drug" into watch collecting. I think they are a great brand and have a place in the market for mass market watch consumers and collectors alike.
