Thomas Burberry founded the Burberry group in 1856. It started out as a clothes shop in Basinstoke, England, and later on grew to become an emporium in 1870. A decade later, Burberry was able to develop a durable fabric called garbardine, and toward the end of 19th century, the company had grown to be a publicly traded company, which led them to move to 30 Haymarket St., London. Burberry also produced and manufactured watches for men and women, most of which are characterized by wristbands with checkered patterns. In the early 2000s, Burberry partnered with Fossil, and today, it is the latter company that creates Burberry watches. The deal between the two companies resulted to Burberry watches doing big time in the international market.
