Fossil has been known for its quality timepieces for years. The way the company seamlessly combines class, functionality, and practicality in their watches is almost unrivaled, and they surely delivered on this combination with the FS4735.
A watch that looks stunning, classy, while also having enough useful features that will leave even the most passionate horologists impressed. We take a look at this incredible timepiece in this Fossil FS4735 review.
Dial & Crystal
A great dial will make any timepiece stand out, and this product definitely has one. The white background of the dial does a brilliant job of providing contrast for the Roman Numeral indicators along the face.
Right below the 12 o’clock position is the iconic Fossil brand name in their signature typeface, along with three sub-dials for the chronograph function of the watch.
To bring all of this together is a pair of perfectly colored white hands with a silver seconds hand that make reading the time a breeze, and to protect the dial is a mineral crystal which is famous for its durability.
Case & Crown
A watch that looks this classy needs nothing less than stainless steel for its case.
The bright and shiny stainless steel case on this timepiece provides both an incredible amount of protection for the internal parts of the watch but also blends with the dial while contrasting the brown leather strap.
The crown of this watch is placed at the 3 o’clock position to allow you to easily adjust the time or switch into the chronograph function of the watch.
When I look at a watch, I always pay attention to what movement the watch uses. This is because no matter how eye-catching the watch’s design is; if the watch isn’t accurate, it isn’t that useful.
However, Fossil makes sure that accuracy won’t be a worry for those who have this watch as they have used a Quartz movement for this product. Quartz movements are famous for being incredibly accurate while also being cost-effective.
These movements don’t require winding like their mechanical counterparts as they rely on a battery to keep the watch ticking and accurate to the second.
Strap & Buckle
The FS4735 comes with a genuine brown leather strap that just exudes style. The leather feels extremely comfortable on the wrist, while also looking great on any man’s wrist.
The buckle locks in properly and assures wearers that the watch won’t be slipping off the wrist at any point during the day.
But arguably one of the best parts of this product is that the straps are interchangeable to fit anyone’s style. To remove the strap, simply use the quick release pins and attach a strap that fits your style choice the best.
The watch’s bezel is nothing special, to be completely honest with you. But that’s far from a bad thing, as the stainless steel bezel looks great with the watch, and does not distract from the design.
While there’s no slide rule or tachymeter on this timepiece, it still performs up to par.
For starters, this watch has the standard 100-meter water resistance.
This means that this watch will hold its own when in the shower, washing your hands, or even a quick swim but it isn’t recommended to use this watch when doing aqua-sports or going for a dive.
Another great addition to this watch is the chronograph: with this watch, you can time your runs, reports, or basically whatever you can think of doing with a stopwatch. This product definitely packs a lot, in a stunning package.
When looking for a watch, there are always a lot of factors to consider. From price to functionality, to design. This product from Fossil is definitely a great combination of all three of those factors.
But at the end of the day, the choice is all yours, and as long as you feel good about your timepiece, it is without a doubt the perfect one for you!
