Philippe Starck’s long awaited watch design will make its UK debut in department stores and specialist retailers in October. It is both Starck’s first watch and the first time that manufacturer Fossil has collaborated with an individual designer. The Philippe Starck with Fossil line is an eight-piece collection of digital watches with plastic cases and buckles on rubber straps. Starck has been planning a watch collection for 10 years. He was introduced to Fossil in September 1999, began working with its design team last October and had a sample watch within a month.
