    Got a text from local store employee that watches will be 25% off Friday the 30th through Sunday the 1st.

    Now the big decision............Titanium Gearbox Automatic or Titanium Gearbox battery powered?

    Is it really worth an additional $1200'ish for an automatic?

    I could buy 2 Titanium standard Gearboxs for the price of 1 automatic..I've got the only auto in the DFW area held for me for tomorrow AM. I'll decide in the morning. Thanks

    Think of it this way.

    When it comes time to change a battery would you rather worry about it being done properly?

    No changing battery means that watch should never have to leave your possession;)

    I concur with @OakleyFrankFMJ. My TB 2 is out of my possession right now, not because of batter though, and it's not a good feeling.

    Automatics need servicing too, just not as regularly...

    Automatics will a need to be serviced every 5-6 years on average. Oakley uses standard workhorse movements that aren't out of the ordinary, so any semi skilled watchmaker can service it. Typically takes the 2-4 weeks...longer than servicing a Quartz.

    I assume this is only an in-store thing?
