Watch of the week: Fossil Bronson Chronograph

We have a good number of high-end watches on our site Watch series of the weekBut don’t let the price tags fool you: you don’t have to spend a fortune to buy a great watch. The market is full of affordable watches for discerning buyers, especially if you are open to quartz movements. Fossil has always been a great supplier of these types of watches, and the brand’s Vintage Classics collection, which launched earlier this month, includes a pair of new watches that fall squarely into the “big model and small budget” category. We especially love the Fossil Bronson Chronograph: with its bold case, dial colors, and stitched leather strap, it strikes a balance between strength and durability.

The hard half of that equation is clear even from a quick glance. The watch features a large 44mm stainless steel case. With its angular design and knurled surfaces around the bezel and crown, it lends a muscular look. It’s available in three different color combinations: black with a stunning green dial, gray with a gray dial, or “salted caramel” (a pale golden color) with a brown dial.

We love the black and green combo. The contrast between the two colors looks unexpected (in a good way) and makes the dial stand out. Green pairs are good with simple indicators in the form of a beige block. It’s also the only version to come with a bright orange seconds hand – a key detail that heightens clarity and gives the watch an army-inspired feel.

These powerful looks come with a lot of refinement and ability, too. All three versions of the Bronson come with a date window at 3 o’clock and three sub-dials to track the time using the hourly chronograph function, powered by a reliable quartz movement. A stitched leather strap comes standard, and gives these watches a classic, lived-in look that helps balance out the bulky case. Additionally, the watches are water-resistant to 50 metres, so swimming is out of the question (but we’ll opt for a replacement strap first).
