Brands In The News: Q2 2019


PUMA Drops First-Ever Limited Edition Watch Collection

PUMA has teamed up with Fossil Group to redefine their iconic sports brand for the wrist with the launch of its new, limited edition RESET watch collection. Blending inspiration from the rise of footwear, urban street style, and PUMA’s #DOYOU “badass women” movement, this collection introduces 90’s nostalgia to a younger generation of watch enthusiasts by adding a modern line-up of materials and bold colors.

PUMA dropped the RESET collection on May 2, with just 448 watches available per style – a shout out to the brand’s start in 1948. Be the first to shop Puma’s new collection at www.watchstation.com.

Just this past year, PUMA signed on as one of Fossil Group’s latest global license partners for the design, development and distribution of PUMA watches and smartwatches through 2028. If you missed the RESET, have no fear – additional styles from PUMA and Fossil Group will hit the market later this season.

“To reset requires a mindset of reinvention while taking inspiration from the past and present to create a version of oneself.”

— Daniela Molin, General Manager BU Accessories at PUMA.

Fossil X Crosley: Two American Classics. One Platinum Partnership

When it comes to amplifying style, Fossil hasn’t missed a beat thanks to its new partnership with iconic American brand, Crosley. The duo recently released vintage-inspired accessories that will bring music to your ears and wrists.

A pioneer of the vinyl and record player revival, Crosley launched its first turntable in 1992 and empowered a new generation of music lovers and vinyl enthusiasts. Blending the brands’ mutual passion for retro resurgence and appreciation for the power of music, the collaboration is a seamless addition to Fossil’s Curator Series—a collaborative collection fueled by a creative class of designers.

Taking a new spin on an everyday watch, these limited edition timepieces resemble Crosley’s iconic turntables with grooved details and a spinning-disc second hand. The brand also co-designed a custom record player—complete with Bluetooth speakers—featuring one-of-a-kind novelty graphics. Get your groove on and check out our product in motion!
