    I recently purchased one of the original Oakley Time Bombs. This is the first automatic watch that I have owned. What, if anything, do you use to kep the watch "wound" while you are not wearing it?

    you can find some decent watch winders on either Amazon or Ebay that'll do the trick for you.

    One thing I would recommend, If it has an older/original capacitor send it in for a new one. There is a newer version and it costs $20. Mine has lasted over 2 weeks sitting on the shelf.

    Cool, if didnt know it would last that long. I do know I've gone 4-5 days and it never kicked into energy saving mode. I'm glad I got that capacitor done while I was there!

    Hi guys, what capacitor are you talking about? Oakley says they do not have any parts for the original time bomb.
    Who is replacing it for $20?

    I had mine changed at Oakley HQ at the customer service counter a few months ago.

    It does have the origional capacitor in it. Would the best bet just be to call customer service and ask about getting it changed?

    The original Time Bomb uses Kinetic movement guys. Not the mechanical movement that you can call "automatic" like the Time Bomb 2.
