The picture used here really shows a stunning watch, but I had no idea just how gorgeous it would be until I saw it in person. It's truly stunning.
The rose gold is a little lighter than copper, but accentuates red and other autumn colours quite well. The black of the ion coating is matte on the flat side (almost a matte black brushed steel look to it) and glossy on the edges.
This is the perfect watch for those who want a striking look to accompany their business casual autumn colours, or for those with darker skin than mine to wear with other colours (pale-skinned people, take note -- if there's a good bit of blue in your skin, this may look a little odd). However, the black surrounding all of it helps to tone down any clashes it may have, and it's guaranteed to look stylish with a variety of clothing choices.
As for functionality, it's basic. Time, day, date, and seconds. The hour and minute hand are 'luminescent' (glow in the dark), so you should be able to see them in the dark for a while. I've several Fossil watches, and like all the others, the 11 year warranty is outstanding, and the watch mechanics are in prime condition. You won't be disappointed.
