Power Source

The Rutherford FS5330P model uses a reliable Japanese Quartz movement to power the three-hand main dial, which displays the hour, minute, and second. In addition, there is a day-date calendar window at the 3 o’clock position that displays the day of the week (e.g. “TUE,” “WED,” etc.) as well as the day of the month in Arabic numerals.

The SR626SW battery is plenty powerful to power the range of timekeeping in this Rutherford model.

The Good

This watch model has a great rating by consumers and it is not difficult to see why. The simple and classic display looks modern and dressy — perfect for daily or dress wear. The black leather strap with a buckle clasp is traditional and of great quality. It complements the black dial face and silver-tone accents.

The hours are marked by polished, stainless steel stick indexes, and there are white second markings around the outer rim of the dial. The dial hands are stainless steel (silver-tone) and look quite elegant while keeping the hour, minute, and seconds.

The main attraction is the square (almost cushion-style) stainless steel case that measures 38mm x 41mm. At only 8mm thick, the case is sleek, polished, and perfect for any gentleman. The strap is 22mm wide and is interchangeable with other 22mm standard bands.

The mineral crystal is elegant and offers a perfect view of the black dial, silver-tone dial hands, and the day-date display calendar.

With a water resistance of 50 meters (5 ATM), this watch can withstand rain, hand washing, splashes, and some accidental drops. It is not recommended that you snorkel or swim with it, however, to be safe.

The Bad

For the price, quality of materials and construction, as well as the design, this Fossil does not have any bad aspects to it. It is well built, well designed, and has a power source appropriate for its needs.


As far as function goes, this Fossil Rutherford model is perfect for everyday, casual wear. The Japanese Quartz movement is of high quality and will last years before needing to be changed. Since this watch keeps time using three dial hands and uses a day-date calendar display, timekeeping is simple but elegant.

With a stainless steel construction, a solid backing, mineral crystal, and a water resistance of 50 meters (5 ATM), this men’s dress watch is fully functional and reliable.


The highlights of this Rutherford Three-Hand Day-Date Black Leather Men’s Watch by Fossil are its design and color scheme. The stainless steel case is a soft square, not unlike a cushion design, that is 38mm x 41mm. Polished to perfection, the hour indexes are also made of applied stainless steel and are fashioned into stick indexes. This gives the timepiece a classic and stunning silver-tone and black design that will never fade out of style.
