What ever happened to Nixon & Fossil?

Post by koimaster » February 18th 2022, 4:45pm

At one time they were forum darlings. Everyone had a fossil or Nixon 51-30. Now, nary a blimp on the radar screen. Zodiac also IMHO took a dive as well.

Fossil and Nixon have faded into department store brands........ Nordstrom, Kohl's and sew Fourth. The Nordstrom Rack always seems to have a bunch of both brands.

Not sure if Sector is owned by Morellato or Fossil at this point - they are pretty much only available online in the US these days.

Just received something from Zodiac about the Super Sea Wolf from the pictures I have seen it’s a sharp watch but at 1600 it’s a hard pass.

Zodiac at one time you could pickup cheap at the Fossil store along with Burberry branded automatics.

I bought two Zodiacs at the Fossil Outlet here in Nashville after it opened many years ago. Never saw any there after that. The store is still there.

The only place I see NIXONs are at those "skateboarder-type" shops at the malls like ZUMIEZ or some such.

Here's one called Tillys:
