Fossil JR1303 Review

Fossil JR1303Fossil! A name which is kept up high with all the panache in this scintillating fashion world! Founded in 1984 when timepieces were created more for function than fashion, Fossil began to transform this notion with its unique combination of vintage 1950s Americana design and affordably accessible cool style.

Adding to their collectability was the one-of-a-kind, trademark tins that came with the watches that mixed a creative spirit with a sense of humor. Now you would find almost all of this in Fossil JR1303. This is a watch that has all the charisma to grab all the eyeballs. A wonderful compass accompanies the main dial which has style of top notch.

Quartz Movement

Quartz watches don’t need as much maintenance as mechanical ones. The latter require regular cleaning and oiling, which can be a time consuming and expensive process. Quartz movement is clubbed with an analog display which is easy to read and understand.

Best shade of “grey”

Ion plated grey colored bezel witnesses an ultra stylish dial within it. The dial which is complete grey in color makes statement with three chronograph subdials. Only three big numerals- 9, 12 and 3- are used to give the dial a completely different look.

Always know your cardinal directions as this black chronograph Fossil has big and bold details, including a compass in the bracelet. Crowns need to be pressed rather than winding them to run the chronographs. Your perfect party look can be achieved and at the same time it can act as a style companion for your board room meetings.


Stainless steel watch bracelets are highly durable and wear well in all kinds of weather. However, they are generally heavier than leathers or textiles but offers best of their strength.

Final Note

Today, Fossil produces over 300 different styles of watches in a continuously changing lineup. While the majority of designs are created by in-house designers, Fossil has reached out to such contemporary artisans as product designer Philip Starck and famed architect Frank Gehry (designer of the Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao, Spain) to create uniquely modern timepieces.

This particular timepiece is all up for a subtle style statement. Big dial promises big numerals, subdials and big status of course. Not to miss the unique grey color!
