    So I've got a titanium gearbox and a titanium 12 gauge. I am really thinking about getting a polished OMM with the black face because I feel like those are going to be better as an investment vs the blue faced ones. Remember kids, black goes with everything! lol

    Oakley watches are a terrible investment. Buy them because you like them, not because you think they will be worth more in the future. They won't, guaranteed.

    If you want to invest in something, buy gold and silver coins. Of course they are harder to strap to your wrist. Anyway I'd have to say that I have seen many watches retain their value if not increase but keep in mind that the true value of something is what others are willing to pay for it. Fortunately there is a community of folks willing to do just that. When we're all dead, you may have a problem finding a "normal" person willing to pay that much. Now where did I put my Discover card?

    All of my watches have. I appreciate them more than I paid for them.

    In theory maybe, but I bet if one came up for sale here it wouldn't fetch more than MSRP.

    Not yet... I'm sure over time once they are all released into the wild they will become a hot comadity. After all they are Swiss made... Like the cheese.
