Fossil … I just love the word. It brings to mind treasures unearthed from the ground. At Fossil, there are certainly treasures to be found, but the good news is that you don’t have to dig them up. Founded in 1984, the company must have chosen that name to reflect its vintage American inspiration. The company soon became well-known for its quality retro-inspired watches and other accessories, like handbags, wallets, jewelry and sunglasses. Today, the brand also encompasses clothing lines for men and women. The company has grown to include over 400 retail locations and over 4,000 wholesale locations worldwide. The Fossil Group has expanded its portfolio to include an umbrella of brands, and has launched itself into the S&P 500. The Fossil Foundation believes in working towards positive change in the world. Through its Fossil Unbound program, it has launched a global initiative to help young people achieve their potential.
