      A really nice wrist accessory, a quality item

      I'm not exactly sure what it is about Fossil watches I love so much. I already own one- plus some of their jewellery- and every time I walk past the Fossil shop in Victoria Square (Belfast), I have to go inside. It's either that or standing at the window drooling.

      Some women go for petite, modest little watches. For me, I like my watches to do more than simply tell the time. If they don't also look good, I don't really see the point. I like my watches to be nice and chunky, which is precisely what this one is.

      Case: The case is a rounded rectangle in shape about 3cm in diameter, and silver in colour (stainless steel), with the numbers 15, 30 and 40 engraved in a nice modern font. The 5 minute intervals are also marked out, and a small triangle or downwards arrow marks the top of the hour.

      Face: On the dial of the watch the numbers 12, 3, 6 and 9 are enclosed within a narrow black band, once again with the 5-minute intervals shown. On the face of the watch the hands are relatively short, but it suits the look of the watch. My favourite feature, however, is that the watch face will change colour at the touch of a button between a sleek-looking silver, to a fun midnight blue. You can set this to alternate between colours, but I tend to keep it on the blue setting because I think it looks best.

      Strap: Sorry, but this isn't suitable for vegetarians. The strap is a dark brown leather strap that sits on top of another inner leather strap, giving it a two-layer effect. The stitching on the watch is pale- not quite white- and the thread contrasts nicely with the dark leather. Because its leather it doesn't really get that sweaty feeling that can sometimes happen if you're wearing a plastic watch, and it's insanely comfortable to wear.

      Water resistance: The watch is water resistant to 100 Meters, but I would suggest that you avoided getting it wet, I don't think it's very good for leather.

      Anything else: The watch come in a nifty Fossil tin with all the papers of authenticity.

      Price: Umm... It's Fossil, which means that it isn't cheap, but you are really paying for a very good quality watch, so you would be expected to pay a bit more. Shop around, I found this one online for £85 (plus p&p), but I've seen it on sale for as much as £120.

      Summary
      -----------

      I love this watch. I tend to wear a lot of chunky watches and wrist straps, so this watch suits me down to the ground. It's great looking, and I've been complemented on it a number of times. I know it's a little pricey, but it's a really nice, good quality watch from a good company, and it comes with a two-year guarantee. Brilliant.
