Fossil is bringing back its BIG TIC watch for 2020. First introduced in 1999, the quartz/digital watch features an analog hours and minutes function coupled with a full digital dial display for the seconds.

With the re-introduction of the BIG TIC, Fossil Japan has enlisted the help of Fukuoka-based illustrator Backside Works. Available in both 32mm and 40mm sizes, the collaborative BIG TIC has a highly polished silver appearance from the case to the bracelet, but rather than a monochrome digital dial, a rainbow seconds display fills the center.

The whimsical watch also has seven different digital animations for displaying the seconds — all done in a retro ’90s style with the help of Backside Works.

Those interested can find the Backside Works x Fossil BIG TIC watch over at NEUVE A for a price of ¥16,500 JPY (approximately $155 USD).
