    So I have one of the watches Fossil made with all the classic icons on it. I bought it new and put it in storage over a decade ago. It's in the same condition as this pic.

    I can't find much info on it, and there's never any on ebay when I search. Is it that rare, or what?

    $50. I'm guessing it was a wise investment. :)

    eBay, sometime around '98-'99. At that price I wanted to get two, to have one I could wear, but I guess there was just the one.

    Is there any info on tha interwebz about it? I've looked, but can't find anything.

    I'm not planning on selling it but thanks anyway. I've contacted Fossil, so maybe they'll have something.

    I don't have that at the moment. The watch is in storage, and while I know which building the watch is in, I'm not sure of the exact location. I really need to track it down. When I do, I'll post a pic of the watch back.

    My Star Trek Pocket Watch by Fossil has an outer box as well as the main watch box. The outer box will have the store price tag on it.

    Hopefully, your watch is complete as well. It may not have an outer box but there should be an original Fossil price tag on it.

    After all that, the back is very disappointing!

    I have one of those in storage too. Never thought it would be worth anything. Similar story, a purchase on Ebay years ago. I was actually looking for parts for my Quadra when I located it.

    I should dig it out too!!

    Agreed. I thought there was more info on the back. C'est la vie.

    Definitely:)
    Track it down and start wearing it, unless it's never been worn. In that case, hang on to it.

    I paid about £60 ($90) about two years ago from eBay. It had been lightly used so a mint one should fetch top dollar.

    Those Pocket Watches have a cool tin - I've got a couple of them! (One to wear and one for the collection.... ;) )

    Wow. I'm insanely jealous. I don't think I could ever keep something like that in storage. I'd wear it every day!

    If any of you decide to sell what you have, please PM me. I don't know how much I could offer, but I'd be willing to try.

    That would probably be the icon for the Control Strip cDev.

    Is that what it is? I can't remember what that icon goes to. I figured it was the Puzzle, but Control Strip is just as likely.
