I've never been one to wear watches as I found it just as easy to grab my phone and check the time on there. However I was bought a Fossil Chronograph watch for Christmas off my Dad and felt like I should probably give it a bit of a wearing.
For its actual purpose, the time keeping, I have no complaints about the watch. It did its job, the time piece looks stylish in a striking black background against the silver strap. It was easy to see exactly what time is purely from a quick glance.
The stainless steel wrist strap looks good and gives the watch a nice sleek look to it. However this is where my major downside of the watch comes in. I'm not sure if it just me not being use to wearing the watch or the general design but I found it quite annoying to wear. It got cold overnight which meant in the morning it was a bit of a pain to put on. I also didn't like the general feel of it and kept shaking my wrist as if to get it off.
My Dad said he paid £80 off ebay for the watch (Yes I know, strange to tell me how much, but that's my dad). If you shop around you can buy this model for around £60 on second hand shops and websites.
Overall I like the watch for its general look and time keeping, however the actual wearing of it just proved too painful for me.
