For the money, he finds the quartz Fossil to be quite acceptable for the most part. While the dial diameter and lug to lug width is a bit large for his svelte wrist, the bracelet is quite nice for the price point.

Most department store watch counters are filled with gaudy and visually disgusting watches; so much so that I scarcely glance in their direction as I head for the shoe department (there was a sale on).
I felt this way even before I had bought my first watch; they all just looked rather cheesy. Now, this particular Fossil doesn't look that cheap but it's also unlikely to be one of the watches on display unless that jewelry department manager has a modicum of taste. (remember where I live. ps: it's not Manhattan)
For my first watches, after running quite violently from the shopping mall, I perused the internet for the brand that for me said "good watch". Yes, I was looking for Citizen watches. And I found them, and bought a couple. Then I saw, and appreciated or understood, the deficiencies between what was offered and what I, in my moderately successful career as mad scientist, could afford.
And so the sickness began. At least I'm vaccinated against Michael Kors, Fossil, Invicta, Daniel Wellington, etc., etc.
