Movement is actually excellent and the movement is Japanese and not Chinese and yes it does make a HUGE difference. Chinese is junk and Japanese is very good and up there with the low-end Citizen model watches. Japanese movement is comparable to the the average grade of Swiss movement. That said the top-end Swiss movement will beat Fossil. Fossils are far better than most think.Well, what do you expect from Fossil, overall finish not so good, below par i might say. Movement mostly chinese, nothing wrong with chinese movement. The problem was the quality of the movement Fossil using was the standard ones.
