    Fossil Drifter CH3044P Chronograph

    My wife got me this one for Christmas.

    The appeal me on this one is the retro appearance. Panda look with nice cream dial that is very lightly metallic, with black subdials, raised applied index markers, finely printed index and chapter ring. I am pretty sure the crystal is acrylic, rounded edges. Build quality feels really nice with mostly brushed stainless case, just the finely bevelled edges are polished. Thick leather strap is soft enough to be comfortable without needing extended wear-in time, nice clasp. The chronograph is designed for non-wis: I have guys ask why the seconds hand on my chronographs are not running. This one puts chrono functions exclusively on the subdials - the main seconds had is central and is always running. Resetting the chrono is a bit crazy. When you press reset the chrono winds backwards all the way back down. The seconds hand winds backward at one revolution in 2 seconds. It keeps spinning backward over and over until the minute hand is wound back down to zero. I've had it for a couple of weeks and it seems to keep time within a second in that time.

    Nice. The last Fossil I bought has a similar chrono module that behaves the same way. It's pretty smart, IIRC it "winds back" if you're less than halfway from it's farthest indication, and "winds forward" if you're past it. My other quartz chronos (Swatches and a Pulsar [Seiko]) will wind forward on a reset no matter the time elapsed.

    Mine only records 30 minutes and then automatically stops. Wish it would record 60 minutes and keep going.

    Lovely looking fossil. Reminds me of that tag CH-80 that they never came out with.

    Love this watch.

    Just ordered a CH3044, while looking for a CH3044P thinking the "P" had a white face. Hoping when it arrives that the face looks more white than cream, but does anyone know if there is actually a unmistakably white face version?
