As it turns out (see what I did, there?), Fossil Twist watches are still just a quartz fashion piece and not an inexpensive mechanical. Not even a cheap Chinese movement. Rather, the actual movement of the watch is battery driven while the “Twist” winds a strictly decorative mechanism. Disappointing, but still a handsome watch and not a bad choice for good looks at a fair price. They make a “Grant” model that’s damned handsome in rose gold and a black/charcoal face. Just don’t be fooled by their advertising parlance, it is strictly the look of an automatic watch.
