Here’s what many watch companies get wrong – technological developments aside, we will still shop for a timepiece that best suits our needs and personality. Yes, we want our watches to tell us the time, but accessories, especially a statement watch can be the best extension of your identity. One look at a person’s wrist and you can tell whether they are a minimalist or favour attention-grabbing designs. If there’s one brand which gets this right, and designs watches that stand the test of time, it is Fossil.
