The Fossil Watch Bar
In the past little while Fossil has really cemented itself as a leader among watch making manufactures. Fossil is a company that has really started to make a name for itself over the last few years, however it has been a successful company for quite some time. They are probably better known for there watches and accessories, however they also produce a long line of other products including clothing, jewelry, sunglasses, belts, purses, and wallets. With the purchase of Zodiac a Swiss watch manufacturer, Fossil Inc. quickly set out to introduce a new style of watch and pricing plan to the industry. After they had acquired Zodiac, which had been producing high end watches since 1882, Fossil had what they needed to produce a quality watch for a price that would be affordable by the average consumer, thus Fossil watches were born.
Even though they had the technology and infrastructure to produce the watches after they bought out Zodiac in 2001, the company still had plans to reinvent the Swiss watch design that Zodiac was known for. Rather than follow some of the trends for high end watches or more moderately priced watches, Fossil decided to go on a completely different route and produce a product that has more of a high end vintage look. The idea was to produce these vintage and retro inspired watches for a price that was affordable and still be able to deliver a quality Swiss made watch. Once they have done this, the Fossil watch quickly started to gain recognition and become everything that it is today. This main goal to produce high quality Swiss watches for a fair price is the reason that Fossil has been able to become such a leader within the industry and it has also cemented their place as a watch company all together. In the last couple of years the company’s sales has continued to grow and they are on the right path to be the highly successful clothing and watch manufacturer in the near future that everyone always expected them to fail trying to do.
Another one of the reasons that Fossil has been able to make a name for itself is by the innovative new features that they offer online. One of the most notable is what is referred to as the watch bar. This function is accessible through their main site and is actually very intuitive and easy to use. The main idea of the watch bar function is to allow the consumer to design or virtual build there own watch. This allows you to have a completely customized experience and make the most of shopping for a Fossil watch. They will allow you to select from many different components to make a watch. For example, you will be able to pick the bezel, the strap and everything else that makes up the watch. You will also be able to pick from themes and colors to make the watch perfectly suit your specifications.
