Fossil Group, in collaboration with the Movember Foundation, showed their stache support this past November on behalf of men’s health. The Movember Foundation’s goal—to stop men from dying too young—raises awareness and funds to fight prostate and testicular cancers, as well as support mental health care and suicide prevention.
Fossil Group’s participation began in 2008 with only 12 headquarters employees and has since grown to over 170 employees worldwide. To celebrate our 10th year of participation and in raising over $406,000, the Fossil Group Mo’ Bros and Mo’ Sistas created a short film to showcase their passion for Movember and friendly competition for best ‘stache.
Fossil Brand got in on the action with the creation of a limited edition Movember hybrid smartwatch. Available to consumers throughout the month of November, the no-charge hybrid featured a mustache-printed dial and embossed strap. Twenty percent of the proceeds supported the Movember Foundation.
Show your ‘stache support and be sure to visit the Movember Foundation’s website to learn more about their commitment to helping men live happier, healthier and longer lives.

American magazine and multi-platform publisher The Atlantic convened business leaders and experts at their annual Power of Purpose summit to explore social impact and examine its effects on corporate America and society at large.

Fossil Group is home to countless creative talents who utilize their artistic abilities to not only develop products with sustainability in mind, but to also transform spaces and young minds in our communities.
As part of its Make Time For Good framework, Fossil Group recently partnered with the staff and students at Barron Elementary in Plano, TX to create a one-of-a-kind mural inspired by a Dr. Seuss quote and designed with repurposed excess fashion watch straps in the shape of the school’s lion mascot.
“Using the resources that we have within Fossil, we thought a lot about how we wanted to repurpose materials,” said Carolyn Marco, associate creative director of Fossil Outlet watches and jewelry. “We’re using about 6,000 watch straps from our excess inventory to create the mural.”
The mural design team—comprised of Fossil Group graphic designers—spent 2-3 months preparing the artwork and layout, culminating in a full-day company volunteer event to construct the art piece within the school. To build excitement, teachers worked with their students to create a colorful popsicle stick painted frame that currently outlines the 8ft by 10ft piece of art.
“Because a piece of artwork can transform a space, it gives the kids a sense of that transformation – they get to see it live while it’s happening and be a part of it,” said Laura Grundler, visual arts coordinator, Plano ISD. “It was wonderful to see them get excited about it.”
Watch how it all came together and the students’ reactions at the unveil!
