Fossil Ansel Watch
The ironies of a timepiece go beyond what is found at face value. A good watch should show time, but never appear to age. When worn, it’s expected to make sure you are timely, but in itself maintain an air that is timeless. Likewise – in spite of heritage or tradition – it should always remain moving forward, that is of course unless the design is a nod to a time of ticks gone by. The Ansel watch embodies the ironies with on point preppy styling.
Fossil is a brand stooped in horological history. Having anchored itself in authentic vintage style since 1984, it’s evident that the American time tellers view on-the-wrist action as more than mere function.
Adding to the paradoxes, the watches face and fasteners are built to last – crafted from PVD gold plate to project against corrosion – whilst the fabric strap remains of the moment due to its key colour ways. Multi-tonal combinations that smack of collegiate appeal frame an off-white dial to keep dress down summer style ticking over with quartz movement.
The Fossil Ansel watch is available from official stockists WatchShop, priced at £85. Each order is sent in an official Fossil presentation tin with a two-year guarantee; by which time it should remain every bit as ironic as the day it was delivered.
