The Fossil watch company always has a great vintage retro look to their products and packaging. They really go all out when they develop a marketing campaign with displays and interesting promotional pieces. So I was amazed that they totally ripped off the Mido watch robot when they came up with the Big Tic figure. If you had any doubts check out the following shots and you be the judge.

I wonder if Mido gave them the OK?
