    I've only ever seen one of these before, belonging to @GH4AU. Pretty dang rare, but it went for a crazy price...

    I know it wasn't Frank...

    Maybe @Joseph Smith?

    Whoever, fess up...

    In case the buyer is a member here, out of respect for his privacy I don't want to post that publicly. However, one could always try to find the finished auction...

    I will say that, even though it went pretty high, the winner's max bid was even higher, don't know how much he was actually willing to pay...

    Why don't we rephrase the question - how much do you think it's worth?

    I was having trouble valuing it - I mean, it's SS with a rubber strap. The other SS / rubber strap 12 Gauges MSRP'd at $1200, $1400 with a bracelet. The SE Ti/CF MSRP'd at $2K, but the Ti is a pretty major upgrade.

    But this Olympic one does have the carbon fiber face, and the unique blue markers. As well as the etched caseback. But it didn't come with a box, just a watch softvault.

    The biggest variable on its value, though, is it's rarity - like I said, this is only the 2nd one I've ever seen...

    So, what's its value, do y'all think?

    like all the time it's worth what people are willing to pay!
    this one was definitely a steal . . . in a better shape with box would fetch 2k

    It is the only one I have seen other than the one that I have. It is a rare Oakley watch, indeed. I would value it at $1,800-$2,000; but that's just me. I've been known to pay more for something due it's rarity. It might be worth it to someone else to pay even more. It really is a beautiful timepiece.

    I've seen more FMJs sell than this unicorn. Out of all of the Oakley watches that I have seen, this is the rarest.

    Well, it went for less than that, but not by much...
