There’ a lot to be said about vintage designs. Great-looking watch designs seem to draw their inspirations from three basic sources: current trends, past classic designs, and future impressions. The big downside with being too futuristic is that you can easily go overboard. You can be so cutting-edge that when you look behind you, there’s no one following you. It can get quite lonely trying to forge new aesthetic horizons. The drawback with current trends is that many of them don’t really have legs when it comes to long-lasting design legacies. They are distinctly products of their time-somewhat like wearable pet rocks or mood rings of the 1970s. They are great for a time but eventually, they lose relevance-at it shows even now. This leaves us with classic designs. Classic designs are designs from the past that have withstood the test of time. These classic designs looked great then, look great now, and will probably continue to turn heads and get fans in the future. That’s how awesome classic designs are. Vintage designs are all about leveraging classic designs to capture a certain mood, and attitude, personality.

FS4735 Overview & First Look
The Fossil FS4735 Grant Brown Leather Watch is all about vintage design. There is no mistaking it. Its leather strap reminds us of classic watches that were all the rage in the 1950s and beyond. Its flat, roman numeral face with a crisp type face and its multiple smaller time-keeping units give the watch a somewhat sporty look which definitely broadens its appeal. There is a certain playfulness in this watch’s design that makes it a ‘fun’ watch to wear whether you’re at work, at class, or at an indoor event or engaged in any sort of indoor activity. This timepiece’s design is a classic Fossil watch style with modern attitudes from the 50’s era to create a hip look. Very versatile timepiece as far as mixing and matching with outfits is concerned.
Style: Casual watch
Fossil has established quite a niche for itself as a watchmaker people looking for fun, flexible, and smart-looking watches go to. The fact that most Fossil products won’t burn a hole in your pocket also adds to their great appeal. The playful 1950s watch face design matched with the leather strap makes this watch a great choice for a wide range of situations. It isn’t a watch you show to impress people with your wealth or to signal to the world that you’ve ‘arrived’ in terms of your net worth, your career, or your academic ambitions. Instead, it is for people who are big on projecting a casual and light personality. In other words, this watch’s style fits people who don’t take themselves too seriously (or at least be perceived as such) quite well.
Movement Type: Quartz
Consistent with the light, casual, ‘get up and go’ vibe of this timepiece, its quartz movement powers the watch without you having to worry about winding your watch.
Special Features: Luminous
Say goodbye to fumbling in the dark trying to figure out the time. The luminous display feature of the Fossil FS4735 Grant Brown Leather Watch looks great at night.
If you are looking for a light, affordable, smart-looking watch with a much welcomed dash of fun and spontaneity, the Grant Brown Leather Watch is definitely for you.
