    Read somewhere about someone swapping in a Seiko automatic chrono into the original TB.
    Personally, I like the TB pretty much for styling and design alone.
    TB II, I'm still testing it out, but obviously much better than the original TB in terms of starting upand keeping a charge.
    Try oakley watch warranty dept and see if they still do repairs.
    Chances are, they'd offer you 50% off some new watch.
    I'd keep it as is, if only for the shell itself, a steal at $150, really.

    i hope they can fix it i prefer my timebomb 1 over my 10th ann timebomb and that was always the colorway i wanted in tb except for a emrald but will never find one of those but if they cant fix it oh well will just be a display piece then ans i only paid 99 for the timebomb 150 for the gmt so i am pretty happy with two stealth oakley watches for 250!!!!!

    I think the TB II is way more comfortable, what with the fragmented design of the band layered with UnObtanium rubber.
    My mint in box set of the stealth TB cost be $400 when I got it a couple of years back.
    So, at a quarter of that, you shouldn't be complaining much.
    Not to forget the original retail of, what, $1200? $1500?
    You should be on Pirates of the Carribbean. :)

    Last January I sent my original (10 year old) TB1 into Oakley to be serviced - for $30 (o-engine was not charging for longer than 4 hours). They fixed the capacitor and returned to to me. Unfortunately the watch totally died in August. This time when I sent it to them they said that the part the need they no longer have. So they gave me a credit for $350 off of another watch (I assumed it had to be a watch) - so I picked up a TBII. So long story short... I think that Oakley being able to help you depends on what is actually wrong with it. Good Luck.

    Unfortunately they did not. I even asked. I still have a stealth tb1 (the one that broke was a Ti with carbon face). I even asked it if i could sacrifice the stealth for parts but the part that was bad was attached to the face so i would have lost the carbon face. I figured the stealth is in really good shape (since I picked it up only about 3-4 years ago at an Oakley vault) so why destroy it.
