If their latest collection is anything to go by, the popularity of Fossil shows no signs of slowing down.

Producing close to 40 million watches per year, the brand operates in 150 countries and even produces wristwear for the likes of Armani, Diesel, Adidas, and Marc Jacobs. Not bad for a once small Texan company, whose aim was to bring a slice of vintage Americana to the watchmaking industry.

Blending Swiss craftmanship with their own unique mix of timeless design with a modern twist, Fossil's vast collection effortlessly spans casual, sporty, and smart looks, and does them all incredibly well. We've handpicked seven of our favourites to showcase the brands versatility.

Dainty yet perfectly formed, the Ladies Georgia Watch is part watch, part bracelet, thanks to its super-slim, tan leather strap. The PVD gold-plated case gives the piece a premium feel, which continues on the face with gold hour markers and hands. The mint green second hand provides a welcome dash of colour to one of Fossil's most elegant models.

Fossil Ladies Jacqueline Watch
