    I searched for this topic and found nothing for any ball busters out there. I purchased a brand new hollow point white face from a reputable authorized Oakley dealer online. I got a very good deal on it let's just say less the 1,200 NIB. When it arrived I unboxed it took the plastics off and noticed it wasn't working/keeping time. So I read threw all the instructions and I recieved the watch with the crown pushed all the way in and screwed in and locked down which means it was in normal mode so I played with it set the time correctly and pushed it back in and locked it back down and still it wouldn't work. I have contacted oakley warrenty and have my label to send it in but anyone have any suggestions before I send it in? The manual says the battery should last for 48 months and the watch only came out a little more then 2 years ago. How could it possibly be dead?

    NEW HOLLOW POINT DOA! any suggestions - 20160110_002030.jpg

    if the chronograph functions were running the entire time that could have shortened the life of the battery. Or possibly it was a bad battery

    I concur with @Duke Nivram but that watch is also older than 48 months old.

    Have the battery swapped

    True. But when was it actually MADE? ;)

    (and for some reason I was thinking of 48 months as only 2 years honestly.) :rofl:

    This one has the plastic box so I am guessing its only a few years old at the most. As mentioned above still could be a battery, chronometer will drain it. Nice watch though.

    Alright well hopefully oakley will fix it free of charge beings I just bought it in December. I was mainly just concerned that the actual movement may have had a problem or that I was just missing soemthing this is my first higher end watch and I've never really been a big watch guy.

    I'm guessing you also tried activating the chronograph right? If it doesn't move then it has to be the battery. Might be a brand new (old stock). As long as the seller is an authorized one then oakley will pay for the battery including labor.
