      I bought this watch about 2 years ago and have been wearing it almost every day.

      The watch face:
      The rose / nude colored face is simple and classy. The tone compliments my pale complexion and basically goes with all of my outfits.
      Since it's so neutral, I'm sure it will suit a wide range of skin tones.
      Depending on the light, the color subtly changes from rose to golden and to a neutral cream. The stainless steel is one part brushed, one part polished. This adds some nice detail and makes the watch appear to be of a premium quality.

      The leather strap:
      The issue with this watch however is the leather strap.
      At first, the nude color of the strap didn't look so pretty against my skin. For the first few weeks, my wrist literally seemed somewhat "naked".
      After a month or two however, the color of the leather strap started changing into a grey-brownish tone. The color looked very nice, though over the next few months, some cracks started slowly building up.

      Two years later:
      Due to the beautiful face and brushed & polished stainless steel, the watch is still pretty chic. For casual wear, you could get away with the leather strap, calling it patina, vintage or novelty, if you know what I mean.
      However, for a formal function or the office - basically anywhere you'd need to look representable - the leather strap simply looks so shabby, that it could ruin your entire look.

      What to do now:
      Though I have been wearing this watch everyday, I've been pretty careful with it and didn't let it get wet, dirty or torn - except for the regular wear-and-tear a watch goes through. My husband says I should clean the leather strap and put some oil on it. But in addition to the dirty and cracked leather, the coating on the sides of the strap have already been rubbed off on some parts. I'm instead looking to replace the entire leather strap now.

      Verdict:
      It's a classy, simple watch that can be dressed up or down. The color is so versatile that you'll be able to wear this watch all four seasons with virtually any outfit.
      The stainless steel in combination with the rosy-nude watch face, make this watch look sophisticated and of a high quality.
      The nude colored leather strap will pretty soon change into a darker tone. After a few month of wear, the leather strap will probably look shabby and worn.
      If you dress casually, vintage or novelty, this watch might still work for you.
      If you like to dress elegant or formal, perhaps you'd be better off with a different watch.

      I got this watch as a gift almost 1.5 years ago. I love it, but the leather in the band has fallen apart. I would love to replace the leather band, but don't know how.

      Bought it for my wife for Christmas. She is an art instructor and needed a watch so that she doesn't have to check her phone just to time the lessons. Comfortable and stylish!

      Great watch, horrible strap

      I bought this watch last year and even though the watch itself still works wonderfully, the strap has almost ripped in two. I was always careful to take it off before showering and doing the dishes etc. so it never got wet but despite that its worn through in no time. Very disappointing!!!

      great watch, wish replacement bands were available

      This is a nice-looking watch, and I like it very much. I was worried that it would look too large on my somewhat slender wrist, but it's fine. I saw other reviews that said the band wore out well before the watch, and that's disappointing, as it does not appear that replacement bands for this watch are available. If I am wrong and they are, I would add a star to my review.

      Comments about Fossil Georgia Sand Leather Saddle Strap 3-Hand Stainless Steel Watch:

      This is a beautiful timepiece, beautiful in its simplicity, which is exactly what I was looking for. Fine design and workmanship with a comfortable leather strap. Lovely color dial and strap. Mounting is unusual and well designed. Looks like more watch than the price commands. Love it.
