    The movement quit on my first generation Minute machine.. Just curious if anyone ha any specs on the original movement, jewler can replace, but the date window will be black #s on White, which isnt original.
    Then Again I love this watch so maybe I should just do it for a one off.

    Any info appreciated

    I know the current one is a Ronda 13 Jewel quartz, similar to the 12 Gauge. Not cheap to replace.

    ronda movements seem cheap to buy on ebay (item 311372124677); the 5040.B seems to my untrained eye to have the correct config of hands and the big date system. but as op says...the date wheels have reversed colours.....

    @RacerX
    have a look at eBay item 311372124677. could your jeweller switch the date wheels over to preserve original scheme?

    It is very possible to change date wheels out, that will require a jeweler though. I should have taken more pictures with the movement out, but was just a clean. I swapped a movement in my gmt and left the date wheel on it. Most oakley movements are standard Swiss or seiko movements. They are under $100 on ebay. It is a lot of work though.
