    I've heard from a few people that Oakley is working on a Oakley Polished Minute Machine, wanted to see if there was any truth to it. Sounds cool, what do you guys think?

    They are. I believe it will be serialized and sell for around $2000

    OMG! $2,000 is too much. And I personally don't like polished watches.
    Especially with Minute Machine which you suppose to wear carelessly.

    I guess this is just to shelf as a collection piece only. IMVHO

    for watches i find polished is a more durable finih to wear "carelessly" as you say... because you can always polish it out. if it was satin.. your're abit SOL

    I love my polished Judges as they get scratched up but still look sweet. My blades are pretty beat up so just hope the polish on MM holds up Dont know how I feel about the 2K price tag

    From a watch collector's point of view, polishing the scratched or damaged watch decrease the value of it mate.
    When you're trying to sell your Rolex or Panerai, first thing they look is that if the case has been re-polished.

    even if you dont have it repolished, a satin finish shows scratches alot more readily than a polished finish from what ive seen
