    Hi All, I'm new to collecting Oakley watches but I've gotten the itch and am starting to build a nice little collection.

    I did a quick search and didn't see any topics so thought I'd throw it out there to you guys. I've heard you have to send the watch directly to Oakley to have the battery replaced, is that true? Can a watch repair place or jewler do a replacement? What are the costs to send it to Oakley?

    Thanks in advance for your time.

    I havent had any changed yet, but have inquired with HQ. I was told they do the batter change in a sealed, dust-controlled room to prevent any dust from getting in during the change. I was also told the pressure test the watch case afterwards to ensure the watch is still waterproof. They said when jewelers change the batteries, they may not seal the watch back correctly and can damage the waterproof seal.

    I think it was roughly $40 for the battery change, but they paid shipping both ways.

    You can have a it changed by a jeweler but it is highly recommended that Oakley does it. Plus if you have someone else do it, it voids the warranty.
