The Men’s Fossil Watches Sizing Guide
Unsure of what size to get? Before placing your watch in the shopping cart, measure your wrists to be sure you select the right size for you. Take a measuring tape and wrap it around your wrist. Take note and record the size. If your wrist is 6-7 inches, you’ll be between a small and medium size wristband. Any larger, you’re considered a size large. If you’re still uncertain, go to a local jeweler and ask for them to confirm your watch size measurement.
If your watch is not the perfect fit when you receive it, we recommend bringing it to a local jeweler to make adjustments for you.
How To Care For Your Fossil Watch
To maintain the quality of your Fossil watch, we recommend cleaning your watch periodically. Take a soft toothbrush and rinse it in soapy water. Then, take the soapy toothbrush and gently scrub the bracelet clean. Take a soft cloth and wipe the dial, and wipe the bracelet off as well. Let the band air dry completely before wearing it again.
All Fossil watches will specify the level of water resistance your model is. Be sure to check this before use so you do not put your watch at risk of water damage.
