I want it. I need it. I decided to have it. But at the last minute, I decided to email to see if the band would be long enough.
It wouldn't be, at least according to the Fossil website hu-mans who seem to lack any sort of personality or emotion. Their pat answer of the standard band sizes that their watches generally come in don't fit my big girl needs. In fact, the band is about the size of my wrist, but the holes don't go that high. It is a sadness. It is a suffering. And I want my watch dammit!
So if your wrist is smaller than seven inches, buy one! But look for it on eBay or some other site, because the Fossil people are kinda assholes.
Also, if anyone knows where I might find a kick ass watch that will FIT (not be the final length of the band) a 7.5" wrist, please lemme know. I'm looking for something with a leather or cloth cuff, a bit on the thicker side, and awesome beyond imagination.

EDIT: I found a perfect watch on (you'll be surprised here) Etsy. About two hours later, an ebay seller emailed me back to tell me the band size is actuall 9" and will fit up to a 8.25" wrist, so it totally would have fit. Damn. Damn. Damn. And blast. But hey, the etsy one is friggin' fab and supporting someone who isn't as retarded as Fossil.
Replacing a watchband is fairly easy to do with a small screwdriver and maybe an awl. Carefully pop the pins out (which are designed with springs like toilet paper holders). Then put anything you want on the band that can loop through those pins and re-insert the pins. You can get replacement pins very easily at any place that has jewelry findings or sells watchbands.
fossil does suck about sizes--in both directions. i took my fossil watch to them for a smaller band, and they were NASTY about the fact that i have 5.5" wrists. they snootily told me they only sell "normal" sizes.
