Fossil Defender watches were marketed as a top of the line watch styled in classic 1940's style. These watches were available from what I remember in about 1995. It's another truly retro series that only Fossil could pull off. These watches were inspired by the design of a 1940's airplane cockpit and in my opinion are a better representation of the era than Fossil's latest attempts of doing vintage aviation.
I don't own one of these watches yet because I'm picky. I'm always on the hunt, but I need that perfect one. I've seen some ivory and white ones lately online, I'm holding out for that all important black chrono like the larger watch in the below picture. Anyone have a great Defender watch you'd like to post?
