Burberry’s company history goes back to 1856 when it was founded by Thomas Burberry. Burberry is a British luxury fashion house headquartered in London, England. Burberry began their journey of watch-making in the mid-’90s by designing and manufacturing their watches in-house. Burberry currently designs and distributes ready to wear including trench coats (for which it is most famous), leather goods, footwear, fashion accessories, eyewear, fragrances, and cosmetics.
Burberry signed a deal with Fossil, to take over the manufacturing side of the process. Fossil is the mastermind behind many watch brands that you see today, many of these watches you probably never would have imagined were made by Fossil! Michael Kors & Armani Exchange are all made by Fossil. The watches made from the Burberry-Fossil partnerships are completely Swiss-made. One advantage of the Burberry Swiss watches is that it can be rather unusual for a so-called “fashion watch” to feature Swiss technology (Quartz movement). This makes these watches a great option for anyone looking for an authentic luxury brand watch but who also values cutting edge watch technology.
