    Is that Animal at the "3" position? I recognize the others, but I can't quite tell who that character is. It almost looks like Grover.

    It's animal, gonzo, fozzie, and miss piggy. They are the same as the patches that you can order. IMO the watch dosn't look like there was much thought put into it. I really don't think it is worth $105. $50 maby.

    $105?

    Yeesh!

    If I wanted a Muppet watch so badly, I can go to Wal Mart, buy a green watch, and glue pictures of Kermit on there...

    Man, I'm sorry, but that's just a rip-off...I mean, Fossil has done some AMAZING watches in their day, that I've drooled over...but ALL of the Kermit Collection ones from a few years ago were better than this one....and you could have probably bought all of them for what Fossil is charging for that bad boy.

    Bad, BAD boy!

    I had the pocket watch from the Kermit Collection. Here's a tip, make surer to take it out of your pocket before you wash your pants, or the watch won't work anymore. :( I'm still so mad that I did that.

    Isn't this watch one in a series of watches? I like it, but you are right, not much to it. I like simple designs and this one elegantly integrates 5 characters into the face without cluttering it up and it looks mighty durable too. I'll put it on my Christmas list. Geez - a few weeks earlier and I could have gotten it for my birthday. Fossil just has bad timing...get it. I'll stop now.

    Remember when the Muppets gave away a FREE watch with the purchase of TMM and TGMC? I had that watch for a long long time...the green one. *sniff* i miss that free watch!

    It isn't worth the price. No thought or imagination put into this one. Supposedly it's a series so maybe we can hope for better. How the mighty Fossil has fallen. Actually many of their recent collectible watches have been blah.

    Being a Fossil Watch, maybe we can all hope that it will evolve into something better!:p

    I still think the watch looks elegant in its simplicity although as a fan I can tell that little thought went into it. If this is part of a series of watches then I won't be too disappointed. It is way too expensive. $80 should be the highest markup for a watch like this.

    I don't doubt that it's a high quality product, and it'll last a long time, but it's disappointing when compared to other Fossil products.

    Hi Everyone,

    I like the Fossil watch and I guess I feel like Jamie does that I like the watch because it's simple and not too flashy....I am going to Boston on Saturady and they have a Fossil store and I am hoping they have the 25th anniversary watch there.....I will let everyone know how it looks in person if they sell it there....Bye!

    Well someone agrees with me. LOL! It is a nice watch in it's own right. I, for one, wouldn't wear a watch that was too flashy. The price is a bit steep.
