i am not sure about the movement used by fossil, but according to their website, their automatic watches are not real automatics. They run on quartz and battery while the balance wheel and automatic movement is just for "aesthetic" reasons. I might be wrong though.
Btw, Nice watch!
They have a few different quartz variations with mechanical parts. But I believe the twist is an actual automatic. I may be wrong.Fossil makes automatics. They also make "Twist" models which run the second hand (only) off an automatic mechanism but the rest of the watch off quartz. I actually saw another company with a similar design the other day but forgot who it was...
whoops.. sorry my bad. I did only research on their "twist" collection. Was into that a few months back but the "fusion style" turned me off. But 50dollars for a Fossil (full) automatic? Thats a steal(even parnis cost more now in ebay:-d)!this one is FULL automatic(model# ME1046), not those cheesseey battery operated automatic lookalike watch....( not sure why they comes up this brillant idea...lol):rodekaart
But you still need a battery right? It would be better if they could make the automatic movement recharge the battery.. Whoops, that'll be a kinetic watch!:-d:-dnope, the twist is a quartz with automatic seconds. I have two of them. Both have open hearts and a second hand that eventually stops...but always keeps perfect time. Personally for what it is I think it's a nice idea.
You're wrong!!! You're talking about their twists models this one is totally automatic as you should be able to recognize by looking at the exhibition caseback. I have two Fossil automatics and I love them both.i am not sure about the movement used by fossil, but according to their website, their automatic watches are not real automatics.

"The beauty of a finely crafted automatic timepiece is coupled with the accuracy and reliability of quartz housed in a watchcase that reveals its intricate inner workings to the wearer."
I much prefer the Chinese version of this 'hybrid' concept, as supplied by PTS Resources to the makers of Tao International, IK Colouring and others.Fossil Twist
There may be other varieties. Please post pictures if you have a different one.
Nice find for the money. I have a Fossil Quartz (wishing it was a mechanical), I like Fossils Watches. I like the copper on black design, it stands out nicely.
Yes. It is a full dual time setup. For those situations when you need to be tracking another time-zone in which the time difference from your current location is not divisible by whole hours e.g. you live in Adelaide and want to track the time in Melbourne.I saw this same watch at the Fossil outlet in Myrtle Beach, SC. Does the small inset watch on the face adjust independently to the primary hands?
