    What movement in this Fossil Watch?

    I am interested in this Fossil watch but not sure what movement it is using. It looks like a SeaGull?

    https://www.fossil.com/uk/en/product...u-me3138p.html

    Would be interested to know more about the mechanics.

    Anyone know?

    Yes it looks like some kind of Sea-Gull ST16. If you ask over on the Chinese forum, there might be somebody who can identify the exact calibre. The functions of the watch are not listed, but I would expect that the moon-looking thing is probably a day/night indicator rather than a moonphase.

    Fossil now makes some of it’s own automatic movements in-house, labeled STP.

    This has an STP1-11 inside:

    In house? You sure? Or just re-branding.

    I was under the impression they'd given up on they're Swiss automatic watches, since they had to practically give away the ones they produced. People weren't willing to pay Tissot/Certina/Hamilton prices for a Fossil.

    Since Fossil owns STP, I suppose it could be considered "in-house".

    Fossil owns Zodiac and Zodiac have inhouse STP movements, as does Fossil.

    Fossil sells their STP movements to outside watchmakers, such as Borealis and NTH.

    Um... No. The Fossil has four calendar sub-dials, just like so many, many other watches, including that Audemars Piguet. But otherwise it is entirely different.
