    What Japanese movements are in Fossil watches?

    Hello,

    I made a thread asking about the ME3101 in another forum but then came across this one. What movement was this originally?

    Probably Miyota 8215 which has 21 jewels, as does the Seiko 7s26. The 8215 handwinds, the 7s does not handwind.

    I found it, it's a 8N24

    Knowing this I think I'll get it for him if he likes it. It doesn't look so bad at all! Thank you very much for your help though.

    If it's a balance wheel behind 7 o'clock, Miyota for sure. If it's behind 9, Seiko for sure.
    A piece of my favorite timepiece, is like a dish of local delicacies. It's not about how good it may look, or how branded in may came from popular stalls or restaurants. It's always the materials and concoction that produces the best keep!

    I had a Fossil with this movement, and in terms of smoothness I was fairly impressed. The rotor made VERY little noise and it was very smooth when winding with the crown. I didn't get a chance to put it on the timegrapher, but overall it was a nice movement for a ~$150 watch.
