There’s no better way to unwind than by retreating into Harry Potter’s magical realm. After all, November 14 is Children’s Day, and no self-respecting Potterhead would dare skip out on a full-season film binge in honor of the holiday. With the release of its new Wizard-themed watch and jewelry collection, Fossil is obviously getting into the spirit of the season.
Fans of the Harry Potter series can be found all over the world, but they are especially numerous in the United Kingdom. As a result, several companies have sought to partner with Warner Bros. in an effort to capture the enchantment of the series and its iconic characters.
The collection features 5 watches, 4 of which are inspired by Harry, Ron, Hermione, Hogwarts, and the fifth one being a tribute to all four but in a gold case. Enter the greater wizarding world.
Harry Potter x Fossil is a magical collection that captures the excitement of returning home, the sense of adventure that permeates the halls of Hogwarts, and the school’s recognizable symbols. There’s a little something in the capsule collection, made in collaboration with Warner Bros. Consumer Products and inspired by the Harry Potter films and J.K. Rowling’s beloved wizarding world, for witches, wizards, and Muggles of all ages. On October 27, a magical collaboration between Harry Potter and Fossil was released to the world.
“We are thrilled to release this collection celebrating such a beloved series. These stories connect generations of people around the globe, and we hope the Wizarding World community is as excited to collect, as we were to create, accessories that illuminate the magic of Harry Potter,” says Melissa Lowenkron, General Manager of Fossil Brand.
The Harry Potter x Fossil Heritage Watch, with its dial homage to Hogwarts and caseback Hogwarts crest, is for anyone who has ever dreamed of attending the prestigious school. Highly accurate Japanese automatic movement, 43mm gold-tone case, three-link bracelet, lightning-bolt second hand, and glow-in-the-dark minute and hour hands are just some of the features of this timepiece. Heritage Watch is a limited edition timepiece that retails for INR 38,995.
To celebrate the opening of Hogwarts, four House Watches have been created. Each watch has a 20mm striped nylon strap in the house colors with the dial depicting the crest of the respective house, which may be a lion, badger, raven, or snake representing the spirit of one of the four Hogwarts houses: Gryffindor, Hufflepuff, Ravenclaw, and Slytherin. Each Harry Potter x Fossil House Watch is available for INR 14,995 and features a 40mm case with gold-tone (Gryffindor), silver-tone (Ravenclaw, Slytherin), or smoke (Hufflepuff) details.
Johnson Verghese, Managing Director, of Fossil India said, “Creativity and connections are at the cornerstone of Fossil’s endeavor in pleasing its patrons. We warrant our customers and collections with individuality, celebration and unmatched magic that is exclusively ours, and the launch of these Harry Potter accessories absolutely intertwines these elements. It’s gladdening to present the Wizarding World with mementos that can truly transport a feeling of sentiment to the beloved series.”
In addition to a coin-shaped pendant with the Hogwarts crest, the collection also includes House Necklaces with pendants depicting the Gryffindor, Hufflepuff, Ravenclaw, and Slytherin crests. The gold-tone chain bracelet from the collection features a link in the shape of the university’s emblem, making it an enduring tribute to the alma mater.
Jewelry from Harry Potter x Fossil features characteristic textures, stunning crystal and mother-of-pearl accents, and is adorned with gold-tone necklaces and an earring set based on iconic symbols from the wizarding world. Earrings have studs of a lightning bolt, Harry’s glasses, a flying key, a golden snitch, and Deathly Hallows motif, while necklaces portray the Time Turner, Mirror of Erised, Hogwarts castle skyline, and charms of these items.
