A Stand-Out All-Around Watch
Comments about Fossil Dean Leather Strap Stainless Steel Chronograph Watch:
I've had this watch for about three months now, wearing it almost daily. Since buying this watch, I've received numerous compliments on it. I've even heard a few compliments from other men, which is hard to come by in my social setting. The glass is resilient and very resistant to abrasion, the detail is nicely done, and the picture on the site is very representative of what you'll be getting.
Because it presents the elegance and class of an expensive watch without the hefty price or "over-elegance" of one, it is appropriate for almost any situation. It's tough too, so if you're worried that you'll break this watch with a rugged lifestyle, don't (if you smash it with a hammer it'll probably break, but I have gone out and accidentally knocked it against metal machinery without it taking a scratch).
If you go clubbing, the glow-in-the-dark features make it the perfect watch; the reasonable price will save you from hating yourself too much if you lose it during a crazy night out (this happens a lot).
Points to consider in terms of maintenance are mostly around the leather strap. Proper leather care should be used for the strap. This means avoiding water exposure, washing your hands with the watch on (even though the watch itself is water resistant), or leaving in direct sunlight for too long. It'd probably be smart to buy a leather conditioner for it as well. As far as fit and the watch's size, the watch fits nicely on my 7.5 inch wrist and isn't too bulky.
The bottom line with this product is if you're looking for a general, everyday watch that adds class and style to your look while being functional and tough, this is the watch for you. You can do almost anything with it, and it excels at taking the challenge.
