Fossil watches for Men - Decker Black PU Chrono Watch

Fossil watches for Men  - Decker  Black PU Chrono Watch

This Fossil decker black chronograph is one of mi favorite  Fossil watches: 
Fossil decker black chronograph watch REVIEW

- Durable build quality
- Sporty design looks high end for a not-so-high end price
- Split seconds chronograph, date function, and tachymeter
- Luminous hands and markers
- PU band is more like silicone. Very soft, flexible, and comfortable.
- Charcoal contrast stitching in the band is cool
- Fits well and is not too big
- Looks awesome on the wrist
- Styling matches a wide variety of situations and wardrobe color schemes.
- I prefer a larger watch, but this is a more sporty design, so I am more forgiving of the smaller size
- PU band of this Fossil watch is not as breathable as a leather band.
- Flat mineral crystal not as resistant to breaking as a domed crystal.
- The flyback function on the chronograph  of this fossil watch is slow (it takes longer for the chronograph to reset back to 0:00:00 than I would expect ).
- The chronograph buttons are small. This may be a problem for an athlete timing themselves on the go or anyone wearing gloves.

Fossil Watches History

The Fossil watch brand was founded in 1984 in the U.S. state of Texas by brothers Tom and Kosta Kartsotis that still continue today behind this brand of fashion accessories.
Fossil, which literally means "fossil" was the nickname that the brothers gave to their grandfather!

Fossil soon began to succeed in the world of watchmaking, thanks to innovative design and timeless lines of watches that have marked a pace unmatched in the industry. However, in the 90's, Fossil started presenting collections for men and women in the clothing and accessories categories, especially jewelery, wallets and sunglasses.

The brand's success has been so great over the last two decades that Fossil has become requested by other companies and designers - Burberry, Emporio Armani, DKNY, Adidas, Diesel, Philippe Starck, Michael Kors, Marc Jacobs and Frank Gehry, among others - who wanted to launch watches in partnership.
Backstage, Fossil idealizes the dials and cases, and in terms of production, makes the assembly using prefabricated components.
