Fossil pays tribute to three and a half decades of design and function with 2 limited edition watches – Fossil Georgia Mini and Fossil Defender – from their archival series. With only six and five units available respectively, they both take inspiration from very different sources but provide the wearer a blend of nostalgia with modernism.
Commentary: This is the first time we are featuring fashion watches in general and Fossil in particular. We thought it is an interesting release as the limited edition size is extremely small, especially from a huge watch brand. Only a total of 11 sets are offered in the Singapore market – five of the Fossil Georgia Mini and six of the Fossil Defender.
While the press material we received stated these very small limited edition quantities, the watches are available online via the Fossil website: Georgia Mini and the Defender where there is no mention of these ultra limited edition sizes.

Featuring a spectrum of patterns and colors, the strap options make it easy to mix, match.

The Fossil Defender set features a 42mm brushed steel case and three interchangeable top rings, each with their own unique design and finishing to allow for a truly customizable experience.
These include an aluminum inlay and brushed steel dive-inspired bezel with a matte black steel compass bezel. Accompanying these are two 22mm attachment options, one being a North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) inspired field strap and the other a leather strap with rubberized backing. With a total of six different strap and bezel combinations. These limited-edition pieces are packaged in an exclusive leather case with the original Defender logo.
