If you are looking for a watch that doesn’t have to expend much effort to look good, you only need to look for a timepiece that comes with the Fossil brand. I don’t mean to sound formulaic but Fossil, among the many neo-traditionalist watch design houses on the global timepiece scene, seems to have the formula down cold. Fossil simply updates lots of classic designs and everything else seems to fall into place.
Take the case of the Fossil Women’s ES2830 Georgia Stainless Steel Watch. Echoing the elegance and class of yesteryear, this imported round gold-tone 32 mm stainless steel watch features the design elements that evoke instant class and elegance. Sporting an analog display with a mineral dial window, a fluted crown, tan dial and luminous hands, this unit comes with a calfskin leather brown strap and a buckle enclosure. These different elements bring back bespoke classical designs of a luxurious past-without the hefty price tag. This is the genius behind the Fossil brand, they recapture and update classical designs but makes them accessible for today’s watch fans. No wonder Fossil is so popular!
This watch’s design is very cogent and seamless. First, it has an analog display and a mineral dial window. These two elements establish a classic look. Fossil then follows up with a fluted crown, placed markers for hours, a tan dial, and luminous hands. This highlight the classic pedigreed look of the ES2830 Georgia. To top it all off, this unit ships with a strap composed of calfskin leather complete with silver-tone studs and a buckle closure.
The end result? A vintage look that remains classy today. You make a great impact without looking off or anachronistic. Maybe it’s the Fossil ‘attitude’ or maybe it is this brand’s quirky sense of fun and humor. Regardless, otherwise conservative and traditional designs get a much welcome makeover. This women’s dress watch looks fun and sure doesn’t come off as something your grandma would wear to bingo games.
It’s very easy to get excited about all the value the ES2830 Georgia brings to the table. After all, what’s more, classy than a gold-tone analog display watch with a leather strap? There’s an understated confidence and a calm elegance to this watch. It doesn’t look like it is trying too hard or out to prove something. It’s easy to get drawn into the fun aura the Fossil brand projects.
If you put together all the value this watch provides, it would be very reasonable to conclude that you should pony up at least $300 for this watch. Okay, okay, maybe thanks to the modern wonders of mass manufacturing and overseas manufacturing technology, you can score a deal for $200. Well, this watch is even more affordable than that. Yep-this watch costs less than $60. How’s that for class and value all wrapped in one compact 32mm stainless steel package?
Considering the great style and value you get with this model, its quartz movement is a small compromise to make.
Special Features: Waterproof (50 meters)
If all the value and features described above haven’t left you saying ‘WOW,’ wait… there’s more. This watch also comes with a limited water resistance of up to 50 meters. Just in case you get excited at a poolside party and somehow your watch comes off, Fossil’s got you covered!
Ever since its 1984 debut, the Fossil brand has been making the case that great-looking watches with solid features don’t have to cost a ton of money. The Fossil ES2830 Georgia Stainless Steel Watch provides yet another proof of Fossil’s ability to make classy and highly versatile timepieces affordable to all.
