Fossil has just revealed an exciting new collaboration with Disney, marking the celebration of Disney’s 100th anniversary. Brought together by their mutual passion for creativity and a shared design heritage, Fossil and Disney believe in finding inspiration in every moment, encouraging people to dream big and live boldly. In this collaborative spirit, Fossil and Disney are introducing a limited and special edition collection of timepieces, leather goods, and jewellery that will undoubtedly appeal to collectors. The initial release of Disney | Fossil products will launch worldwide on October 12, with further collaborations planned beyond this debut collection.
“Both Disney and Fossil share a fundamental value of innovation and boast rich design histories,” said Melissa Lowenkron, Chief Brand Officer of Fossil. “Disney holds a special place in many people’s hearts and within Fossil’s own archives. We are excited to kick off our long-term partnership with this first release and anticipate sharing more exciting creations in the months to come. We hope that people will delight in collecting these unique and nostalgic pieces.”
Disney | Fossil’s debut collection includes an array of watches, leather goods, and jewellery, with a particular focus on three remarkable timepieces inspired by the beloved character, Mickey Mouse:
1. Special-Edition Classic Disney Mickey Mouse Watch ($779): This reinterpretation of the fan-favourite Disney Mickey Mouse timepiece from 1992 brilliantly captures the iconic character’s essence, down to the finest details.
2. Limited-Edition Sketch Disney Mickey Mouse Watch ($779): Paying tribute to the original illustration of Walt Disney’s Mickey Mouse, this timepiece is a creative nod to the art of animation and the visionary Walt Disney himself. The watch’s dial features handwritten notes from the original Walt Disney Animation Studio’s Mickey Mouse artwork and is designed to resemble parchment paper from an artist’s sketchpad, layered with acetate for added depth and a cinematic touch. Only 1,723 units will be available globally, a reference to the year 1923 when Disney was founded.
3. Limited-Edition Shadow Disney Mickey Mouse Watch ($839): This watch draws inspiration from Mickey Mouse’s unmistakable silhouette, offering a modern interpretation of the character’s iconic design. Only 1,523 units will be available worldwide.
Ryan White, Creative Director of Watches, expressed his excitement about the Sketch watch, highlighting its unique approach to depicting Mickey Mouse through the eyes of the original 2D artists and illustrators. This watch pays homage to the artistry behind 2D animation, capturing the essence of the original hand-drawn character designs. It’s a must-have for collectors and history enthusiasts who appreciate Walt Disney’s innovative 2D animation techniques.
All these timepieces are built on Fossil’s classic Heritage watch platform, featuring a 43mm three-piece case, ultra-precise Japanese automatic movement, and a double-domed, scratch-resistant sapphire crystal for exceptional clarity. Each style comes with a specially designed caseback featuring an original Disney Mickey Mouse illustration and the crown is adorned with the character’s iconic silhouette. They are packaged in collector’s boxes and include a certificate of authenticity.
In addition to the special and limited edition watches, Disney | Fossil offers five timepieces exclusively designed for Fossil Outlet, inspired by vintage Disney animations featuring Mickey Mouse and friends like Minnie Mouse and Pluto, all priced at $190.
For those looking to expand their Disney collection, the assortment of leather goods is a must-have. Crafted from premium leather, these pieces feature Mickey Mouse’s iconic shadow with a subtle shine on a monochromatic black palette. The canteen bag ($399) boasts a unique silhouette, adorned with a gunmetal chain, while the sling bag ($399) offers a modern hands-free style. A travel set ($249) includes a passport case and luggage tag, both crafted in rich black leather, featuring a repeated graphic of Mickey’s silhouette.
The Disney | Fossil collection also includes special-edition jewellery, adorned with hand-placed pavé crystals and crafted in stainless steel with black or gold plating. The Disney Mickey Mouse jewellery line, including the figurine necklace ($249), ID plaque necklace ($249), and ID plaque bracelet ($249), reimagines Disney nostalgia in monochromatic black, embellished with hematite crystals. Disney’s Minnie Mouse jewellery celebrates her playful spirit and sophisticated style, with gold-tone stainless steel and hand-placed pavé crystals, showcasing her signature polka dots and bows. This includes an ID plaque necklace ($249), bangle bracelet ($249), front-to-back earrings ($170), and a ring ($175). Each piece of jewellery is presented in a collectible tin featuring custom Mickey or Minnie graphics.
This collaboration between Fossil and Disney promises to be a treat for fans and collectors alike, blending the magic of Disney with Fossil’s timeless design expertise.
