Does this watch has self winding movement?
Yup, it has either Sellita SW200 or DAV 2824 (aka ETA 2824) movements depending on which version you get. They're all hand-winding "compatible" though!
while SW200 is an exact copy of ETA 2824, I'm not sure that I would say "SW200 aka ETA 2824". the movements are technically made by different companies, though Sellita was a major outsourced assembly operations for the ETA 2824. when Sellita first started making their own SW200 movements they had modified it from the original EA 2824 design to make sure they wouldn't get sued for IP infringement, but later decided to straight up copy the ETA design as there is no remaining patents on the 2824. The original modifications made the SW200 less accurate and reliable.
these two movements are comparable and is more or less the same now, but ETA movements have been around for longer. only time will tell is Sellita movements are built with the same quality standards as the ETA.
I was referring to the DAV 2824, which is literally a ETA 2824-e that has been slightly modified for aesthetic purposes :)
ah yes, i guess i misread your comment. yes, the skeleton model is a modified version of the 2824. e stands for elabore.
