    I really like this timepiece but unfortunately one of the screws has broken and dropped out where the strap fixes to the case at the back. I have sent the watch to oakley for repair but because it is discontinued they were unable to do it because of no parts. Can anyone please help me in finding the screws I am looking for?

    All you need is a pin. That is a very common issue with the GMT. Just take it to a jeweller or a local watch repair store and they can fix it in less than 10 minutes.

    Thanks but It is the screw that holds the housing for the pin that I need. It connects the pin housing to the back of the watch casing. I have tried numerous repair shops with no luck.

    I found this image of the back of my type of watch. I am missing 1 of the 4 screws that hold the strap to the case.

    I have found an image which is the same style as my watch. Only mine has 1 of the 4 screws missing.

    AFAIK that should be a pretty standard screw; I don't know why the repair shops you tried didn't have one. The hard part would be finding one in a matching color.

    If for some reason this latest shop also fails, I bet one of these sets would contain what you're looking for:
