Let’s start with a little history lesson…. think back, like WAY back to 1992. I was more concerned about getting a sweet pair of Air Jordans and making sure my siblings didn’t touch the Super Nintendo, but Fossil was launching some of the earliest limited editions in their catalog. March 1992 we saw the launch of not 3, not 5, but 8 hologram watches!
HG 9101 - Fossil Police
HG 9102 - Exploding Parts
HG 9103 - Fossil Orbit
HG 9104 - Tunnel Vision
HG 9105 - Route Fossil
HG 9106 - Paint in Time
HG 9107 - Night Flight
HG 9108 -Fossil All-star
All of these were launched at the same time – imagine that and all were priced at $60. It’s weird that in my lifetime I had to run the inflation calculator to learn what that equals today and oddly enough it’s about $110, which is close enough to Fossil’s newest limited edition hologram watch that is priced at $115.
I am such a sucker for limited edition watches and the unique packaging that comes only for this watch. I have lucky 054 out of 654 and life is good. I’ve been wearing this watch for a few days and now I’m craving the open road – almost like a subliminal message…summer is here, get on your bike, in your car or whatever and hit the open road – well done Fossil! The watch is fresh take on those older hologram watches with a nice clear face - I’ve gotten many compliments already on it and will be wearing it on a business trip to NYC next week. Look out! It’s just one of those unique pieces that only Fossil can pull off and we are all looking forward to many more for years to come.
As an added bonus the Underground Fossil Collectors Club was invited to & attended the launch party for this latest Hologram watch at the Haas Moto Museum in Dallas. It was a wonderful opportunity to meet the team behind the Archival Series of watches along with the designers and fans alike of the brand at a beautiful location with some of the slickest motorcycles I’ve ever seen. Connections were made, pictures were taken, Fossil items from the past & present were on display and there was drinks and food – does that mean we made it?
I think so!
A big THANK YOU goes to the team that got me down there and coordinated a wonderful office tour & launch party. I can speak on behalf of the many Fossil fans out there that we are excited about the Collector’s Club and new watches, events and new friends along the way.
Enjoy some pictures of the latest limited-edition watch, the Hologram LE1054 along with photos of the event provided from Fossil because I was too excited to take any good photos on my own!
