Fossil Movember

Our favorite month in fall around Fossil HQ? Movember, of course! We began the Fossil Movember movement a few years back with a small group of guys who wanted to support men’s health and grow some ‘staches while doing it. The first two years the movement was simply word-of-mouth with friends and colleagues around the building, but it quickly…

TBT: Retro Future

You don’t need a telescope to see that our newest collection is out-of-this-world amazing. We drew inspiration from rockets, space robots, and other motifs of mid-century futurism to give our giftables a whimsical, wonderful vibe that’s perfect for the holidays.

TBT: spooky watches

We especially…

TBT: Black Satchel

There’s nothing more eternally stylish than basic black—and a classic tote satchel silhouette. This beauty from our 1998 Hampton line reminds us of our new Emerson satchel. Along with structured but soft shapes and roomy interiors, both bags sport double handles and an adjustable strap for versatility in styling. We love how the Emerson retains…

TBT: Tab Clutch

Since its introduction in the early 1990s, Fossil’s tab clutch wallet has been one of our favorite ways to stay organized in style. This 1992 promotion for the first tab clutch was inspired by mid-century ad art. Part of the Sterling leathers collection, it was available in red, camel or brown and featured an innovative—…
