Fossil-Dylan-Watch

Chronograph watches with NATO style nylon straps are all but old news these days. It seems like everyone and their brother is rocking a beat-up, pseudo-vintage, sub $100 watch on a $25 J. Crew NATO watch strap. There isn’t anything wrong with that, but it gets a little old after a while. When that happens, you change out the strap, but it still just doesn’t seem to fit with the rest of the watch the same way an out of the box one would. For $125, Fossil can fix that nagging sense of desire with the new Dylan Chronograph. The gauge cluster style chronograph has black ion-plating and a black and orange striped nylon band. The accent colors in the strap are also in the watch face, so you don’t have to worry about matching because Fossil took care of that too. Why buy all the parts separately when you can get them together?
