I bought my wife a Fossil watch with the Auburn University National Football Championship face. I have no idea which Fossil model it is. It arrived today & is not running. Question--What must I do to...

Make sure of course that the stem is pushed all the way in to start the watch. If it is all the way in then your battery must be dead. You can look around the edge of the back for a lifting area and use a pocketknife to pry the back off, the problem is with new watches you may need a jewelers watch press to get back back on. Also be aware some watches have screw off backs and some have screws those should go to your local jeweler...actually because its a new watch i would return it or at least take it to a watch repairman or a jeweler! Hope this helps!

We bought the Fossil Brown rectangle watch model FS4284, it stopped working so thought it was the battery. we replaced the battery and then 2 months later it's not working again, faulty battery or is...

  • Change the battery. If your watch stops ticking, chances are the watch is not broken and the battery simply needs to be replaced. You can purchase a watch battery at your local department store or drugstore. Use the screwdriver to pry the back off the watch and place the new battery in the same place where the old one fit.
  • Step 2 If your watch is still not working, determine the problem. If you can hear the watch ticking but the hands are not moving, there may be a gear stuck inside. If only one of the hands does not move, the hand itself could be broken. Once you determine the problem, you can see whether it makes more sense to purchase a new watch or get the old one fixed.
  • Step 3 Check your watch warranty. If your Fossil watch came with a warranty that is not yet expired, Fossil will fix your watch if you send it to the company and pay for shipping and handling. See the "Resources" section below to fill out the Watch Repair Form provided by If your watch strap is broken, however, Fossil will charge you a fee as broken straps are not covered in the warranty.
  • Step 4 Check a competing local watch repair store. There are watch repair stores located all over the United States that will repair a Fossil watch if your watch is no longer under warranty or if you do not want to pay the shipping and handling to send the watch to Fossil's watch repair department. Although the watch repair store may not have the exact strap you are looking for, it may offer a replacement strap that is similar to the one that originally came with your watch.
  • Step 5 Return the watch to the store where you bought it. If you purchased a Fossil watch that was broken when you purchased it or broke recently after you brought it home, you may be able to return the watch for a refund or store credit. Check with the store's policy before purchasing the watch if you are concerned about returns.

    I need to know if fossil really makes men's watches with lots of rhinestones.

    The only one with stones on the case that I was able to find on their web site was a womens watch.

    To conduct your own thororugh search go to "" and select watches.

    The "build your own" site does not show the option you describe.

    Display not working

    If I remember correctly, these watches have two batteries.. one for the time and one for the animation.... you probably just need battery replaced.
