Hello, I have two Fossil Watches that I bought at a Garage Sale, and was wondering what Model + Serial # it might be.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Model and Serial Number

Fossil watches typically have the model and serial numbers on the back of the watch case. The model number typically starts with two letters followed by four numbers. It's really hard to tell just by the pictures.
ES 3880. 251703 can you help identify this watch how much is worth now
Not much. Maybe $150 new, used for much less.

Much, much less.

Those pics are so out of focus, I couldn't testify that that is even a FOSSIL watch!

Hmmm...I've not heard the term 鈥渟ouvenir quality" before. But by the time quartz watches started to appear, Timex was having a hard time appealing to the young people just getting their "first" wrist watch. In 1984 Fosssil watches had arrived to pick up the slack between Timex and the more refined "adult" watches. Fossil boasted the modern quartz movement, designs that were more appealing to teens and twenty-somethings, and their low prices were considered affordable by EVERYBODY.
I'd equate FOSSIL with the Pulsar brand that is made by Seiko. (Note: Do not confuse Pulsar by Seiko with the Pulsar watch made by Hamilton. They're totally different animals.)

I see Fossil as nothing more than a fashion watch brand. Cheap quartz movements and paying for the name recognition amongst the younger crowd.

For the most part yes, but not totally. Their current website features maybe 24 models that run on a mechanical movement. And back in the mid-1990s (according to the Wall Street Journal: Fossil Goes Luxury With 鈥楽wiss Made鈥 Label - WSJ ) Fossil tried to go upscale with genuine Swiss made watches. (not sure what happened to that idea...maybe Fossil's COO decided to take the company in a different direction!) But I agree that for the present time, they basically are just a "fashion watch".
