    hi every one, i have a few oakley watches, i have had 2 gmt on the past that had movement problems and i sold them without trying to get them fixed.
    now i just had similar problems with a judge 2 polished black, and a gmt polished black. both of them the chaimber that adjusts the time and date came of, and the time is not passing with new batteries.
    I sent them to oakley and they quoted me in 550 dolars to get both fixed. since they are not 1000 dolar watches i wanted to know if some one here knows watch repair places that works with oakley since i have tryed 2 places on a mall and they dont mess with it.

    hope some body can help me since i love all my watches :showingbiceps::aggressive: Help Needed Judge And Gmt - foto 1.JPG Help Needed Judge And Gmt - foto 2.JPG

    They are quartz watches. There isn't much to do in the way of repair other than just replacing the movement (which is about $40, if you can find the proper one).

    There is nothing "special" about Oakley watches, you shouldn't have a problem finding a watchmaker that will help you out (assuming you live in/close to a major centre)

    This place is in my local mall. They have replaced a battery in an oakley watch of mine. I'm not sure what all they can do but you can email and find out.

    Oakley wouldn't do my blade so I took it to my jeweler and 45 bucks later and a new movement a great working watch again, so happy
