Sometimes, it can be hard to tell (at a glance) what differentiates many watches from each other. Sure, us watch geeks can dive into the nitty gritty and split hairs on the movements, brand heritage, etc. But for the rest of the populace, it’s not quite so easy. Now, the English brand Fitzroy is doing what they can to set themselves apart by putting bold splashes of color in play.
The first of their models that caught my eye was the F-S-S2S2. For starters, you’ve got those lime green hands that are just about glowing. That same green tint carries over onto the anodized aluminum segments set in the steel bracelet. I’m used to seeing perhaps polished links, or gold tone – this is the first time a bold color has shown up in what I’ve looked at, and I have to say, I like it.
Of course, us watch geeks can’t just go on good looks, can we? Not at all. So, let’s run down the specs:
- 43mm stainless steel case
- Swiss automatic movement
- Sapphire crystal with AR coating
- WR to 50 meters
- Hours / minutes / date / sub-seconds
I really wish I could tell you the exact movement in the watch, but my Google-fu wasn’t able to dig that bit of info up. Nor much in terms of the history of the brand (ie, when they came into being). So, it is a bit of an unknown quantity for several reasons. However, for throwing an uncommon splash of color on your wrist, Fitzroy seems to be your maker.

Thank you for reading this WristWatchReview post. With so many things competing for everyone’s attention these days, we really appreciate you giving us your time. We work hard every day to put quality content out there for our community.
WristWatchReview is one of the few remaining truly independent watch news outlets. We do not have a giant corporation behind us, and we rely heavily on our community to support us, in an age when advertisers are increasingly uninterested in sponsoring small, independent watch sites — especially a site like ours that is unwilling to pull punches in its reporting and analysis. We don't play the games the other sites play and we've paid for it when it comes to ad revenue.
We would love for you to support us on Patreon and every little bit helps. Thank you.
