Watches in the limited edition Archival Series will drop almost every month throughout 2019 starting in May.
To kick things off, Fossil is holding its first-ever brand retrospective: The (R)evolution of the Fossil Watch in Basel, Switzerland. The exhibit celebrates the past and showcases how creativity, innovation and design has made the company one of the leading global players in this market. The exhibit will travel around the world and hit cities in Europe with stops in Asia and the US.
Fossil also announced it is reviving the Collectors’ Club, a one-stop-shop featuring their most-loved vintage-inspired products, limited editions and more. This will launch on March 25th.
‘’The re-launching of the Archival Series alongside this innovative retrospective is something that the brand has wanted to do for a long time,’’ says Steve Evans, EVP Fossil Group.
‘’Fossil fans are truly an incredible group, and have loyally stayed with us on our journey for almost 35 years.”
