Fossil watches are made in China and Switzerland. The Chinese manufacturing facilities make the bulk of the watches in the Fossil line and have done so since the company was founded in 1984. Later, Fossil began manufacturing more high-end watches in Switzerland, beginning with the Zodiac brand, acquired in 2001.
The primary Fossil lines that are made in Switzerland are the Zodiac and Michele Watch lines. Most of the other brands, including Fossil, Abacus, Relic and the company's line of licensed watches, come from their Chinese operations.
Once manufactured, the watches travel to distribution centers in Germany and Dallas before shipping out to stores across the globe.
