CH-2365 Red Speedway

CH-2365 Fossil Red Speedway

Fossil red faced 12 hour chronograph, 3 sub dials.
General Comments:

This is my first analog quartz chronograph. We went out browsing at an outlet mall to get out of the house and Tiffany spotted this watch. I have been wanting a chronograph, as it is the only type of watch really lacking in my collection. I believe it was a mis-price, since they didn’t have a tag on it. From what I have seen, it was $95 originally, I got it for less than a quarter of that!

Features:
Case: 42mm diameter, stainless steel, 100m water resistance.
Back: Stainless steel, screw down.
Crystal: Mineral Glass, Domed.
Movement: Battery driven quartz chronograph, caliber OS10. Hacks when crown pulled, quick set date.
Complications: Date, elapsed seconds, minutes and hours, up to 12 hours, conventional seconds on lowest sub dial.

Other: Luminous hands and markers, luminova?

This is a very nicely made watch, at any cost. The bracelet is 20mm all round with a 2 button deployant clasp with safety fliplock. All surfaces are finished well. The face of the watch is unique and easy to read. The face is surprisingly uncluttered. The metal used on the face has starburst finishing. The chronograph pushers have a satisfying click when pressed. Overall steal of a watch with only a few shortcomings: The luminous material used is adequate but nothing more. The bracelet squeaks a little, but my Seiko 5’s do a little as well. Lastly, it is a quartz watch, which means the occasional battery. For what I paid, I can’t complain. Overall, an excellent watch that looks amazing on the wrist, and I really wanted a red watch.
