Oakley Watches | The Complete Guide to Every Oakley Watch

Oakley Watches launched onto the market in the 1990s and brought the same innovation found in Oakley eyewear to your wrist.

Keep reading for our complete list of every Oakley Watch ever created, plus what makes each one unique.

The History of Oakley Watches

The year is 1998, and Oakley is living their eyewear powerhouse dreams. With Oakley’s founder Jim Jannard at the helm, the brand dominates the market with new and innovative sunglasses like the ever-popular X-Metals and Eye Jackets.

And these sunglasses aren’t just for mere mortals. They’re gracing the faces of celebrities and athletes galore like NBA superstar Michael Jordan.

But this year wasn’t just about sunglasses.

In 1998, Oakley made a big splash with their first non-sunglasses product line, launching Oakley watches. And starting with the iconic Timebomb, they made a big splash. The futuristic design shocked the otherwise conservative watch market. But it also put Oakley on the map.

With a Seiko quartz movement, the Timebomb would lay the foundation of Oakley’s watch matching, combining precision movements with Oakley design.

And while the initial $1300 price of the Timebomb stunned some of the markets at the time, they were only getting started.

Oakley would continue to innovate, creating a full line of watches ranging from everyday pieces for $100 to the $9,000 Full Metal Jacket.

Sadly, in 2015, only 3 years after the FMJ launch, Oakley would discontinue its watch line, marking the end of an era.

Keep reading for the complete timeline of every Oakley watch ever made, and learn how the brand has transformed over the years.

The Every Oakley Watch Ever List

Timebomb (1998)

The first Oakley watch, the Oakley Timebomb, is coveted by collectors as the quintessential O watch.

Originally retailing for $1300+ back in 1998, this 41-millimeter analog timepiece features classic Oakley 90s styling with its chunky spinal design straight out of Blade Runner. And the rounded glass face adds a turn of the century futuristic feel.

Plus, with a Grand Seiko movement, this watch is a lot more than just design. And it clearly caught the attention of celebrities, with Michael Jordan spotted wearing a Limited Edition Gold Time Bomb that was rumored to cost $25,000.

Still, a collector’s favorite, plenty of members are dedicated to repairing and restoring these beauties. Check out our guide on how to repair original timebombs for more.

Icon and Icon Small Timebomb (1999)

Launched only a year after the original Timebomb, the Oakley Icon Timebomb and small version offer a more traditional watch design in a smaller case.

While you’ll still find the spinal design of the Timebomb, it’s tapered down on the Icon, and with a polished case, this watch fits in as a more conservative piece. Plus, the Icon is slimmed down, fitting more like a 38 or 39-millimeter watch.

D1 (2000)

Released as a more affordable sports watch, the Oakley D1 retailed for $180 (a fraction of the Timebombs original price).

This digital watch was specifically designed for professional athletes, built with a high-contrast face and advanced timing mechanisms to capture laps/run times.

The D1 would formally start the division of Oakley’s watch line between affordable and luxury designs.

Torpedo (2001)

Reverting back to Oakley’s disruptive designs in 2001, the Oakley Torpedo appears as if it’s molded clay melting in the sun.

This out-of-the-world analog watch originally retailed for $475 but was later found at Oakley Vault locations for under $200.

D.5 (2001)

A follow-up to the popular D1 watch, the Oakley D.5 takes the innovative timing technology of the D1 and puts it in an even smaller case. How small? The D.5 is 87% smaller than the original D1, making this watch perfect for runners and track athletes.

Plus, with an original retail price of $160, this watch appealed to amateur and professional athletes alike.

Crush (2001)

Adding on to the 2001 Oakley watch lineup, the Crush features similar styling to the Torpedo but in a calmer design. And this stainless steel analog watch also features a band made of Unobtainium, the same anti-slip material found on Oakley’s eyewear.

Plus, with a $250 retail price and nine dial/case colors available, the Crush took the Torpedo and made it appeal to the broader market.

Bullet (2001)

A luxury version of the Crush, the Bullet retailed for $750 and features a stainless steel case and sapphire crystal.

Outside of the upscale finish, the Crush and Bullet feature similar designs, albeit with different colorways available.

Detonator (2002)

Oakley’s first analog chronograph, the Detonator, combined classic watchmaking with a modern design. Featuring a two-tone design with all of the pushers (buttons) on one side, this watch is everything we love about Oakley watches.

And originally retailing at $395, this watch brought chronograph technology to performance watches at an affordable price.

D2 & D3 (2002)

The follow-up to the popular D1 sports watch, the D2, builds on the same great running and track technology. With a sleek O Matter and Unobtainium design, this watch is waterproof and durable.

But the innovation doesn’t stop there. The same software found in the D1 was enhanced to now store up to 50 runs and 100 laps, split times, etc. Plus, with a retail price of only $120, Oakley managed to make the popular D series watch even cheaper.

But this wasn’t the most popular watch in the lineup. Wearers complained of issues with the watch in water and the bands falling apart over time. Eventually, you were able to find these in Vault stores for as little as $20.

Crush 2.0 (2002)

Released in 2002, the Oakley Crush 2.0 watch builds on the success of the original Crush but with a more disruptive design.

While still sporting similarities to the original Crush, the 2.0 seems to take inspiration from the Torpedo, with its curves and waves extending from the case through the Unobtainium wristband.

Crush 2.5 (2002)

Launched alongside the 2.0, the Crush 2.5 offers a smaller version of the watch geared toward women. This watch wore closers to a 34-36mm size and was available in a variety of colorways, including pink, powder blue, and light white.

GMT (2003)

Originally coming to the market in 2003, the Oakley GMT features an analog face and a steel backbone.

This watch introduced the idea of a “World City hand,” which allowed the owner to switch timezones automatically based on selecting the city they were in around the bezel. Oakley continued with the spinal design on the steel wrist band from the Timebomb, but gave it an updated polished look and sapphire glass.

Compared to the Timebomb, however, the GMT seemed like a bargain retailing for only $600.

Judge (2004)

A true chronograph, the Oakley Judge, features a 10-jewel Swiss movement designed for precision time-keeping and features a sub-dial for logging minutes and hours.

Plus, while retailing at $575, the Judge still features a case made of solid stainless steel and a metal band, all while packing a sapphire crystal and 48-month battery.

Blade (2004)

Made of stainless steel, the Oakley Blade watch features an aggressive design that lives up to its name. And Oakley advertised the 16 million pounds of force it takes to bend the stainless steel in the blade design.

Designed to fit a variety of wrists, this watch is powered by a five-jewel Swiss movement and a 74-month battery.

Time Tank & Minute Machine (2005)

Originally released in 2005 as the Oakley Time Tank, this watch would later become one of the most popular Oakley watches of all time. With a distinct squared design, taking styling cues from the 2000 era of Oakley design, this watch features an analog 42mm case powered by a 13-jewel movement.

The Time Tank was released with two bracelet options, the first being a lightweight titanium bracelet with micro-adjustment links reinforced with carbon fiber. The second, more affordable option featured a leather band for everyday wear.

In 2007, Oakley was forced to rename the Time Tank watch to Minute Machine after a lawsuit from Cartier, who owned the trademark to the original name.

Under the Oakley Minute Machine name, often abbreviated “MM,” the watch continued its success. The highlight of this model is the Diamond Dial edition which featured a gem at each hour hand position and originally retailed for $4,000.

Saddleback (2005)

Designed for the outdoors, the Saddleback is an analog watch made of 316L high-grade stainless steel. In a nod to the outdoors, this watch features a leather band. And the dials and displays were designed to be high-contrast for easy viewing in low light conditions.

Retailing for $400, this is an impressive watch featuring a sapphire crystal, quartz calibration, and Swiss movement. All of these components are powered by a 74-month battery.

Jury (2005)

Launched in 2005, the Oakley Jury features a 34mm dial that often qualifies it as a women’s or unisex watch. , Regardless it definitely departs from Oakley’s traditional large-face designs.

The Jury follows a similar design to the Timebomb and Icon, with a spinal-esq stainless steel band. And originally retailing for $500 in a variety of colorways, the Jury was a hit amongst men with small wrists and women.

Blade II (2006)

Building on the success of the original Blade watch, the Oakley Blade II features a similar aggressive design hammered into a case made of stainless steel and Unobtainium. Powered by a gold-plated 5-jewel quartz swiss movement, the 44mm Blade is equally impressive on the inside as the outside.

And with an original price starting at $450, this is still one of the most collectible Oakley watches today.

Holeshot (2007)

With a relatively tame and classic design for Oakley, the Holeshot was available in 3 variations.

The Holeshot 6-Hand features a chronograph dial and movement, in addition to a tachymeter around the rim of this analog watch. This watch is designed to act as a stopwatch measuring precision time at the press of a button.

In comparison, the Holeshot 3-Hand and 3-Hand Small are simpler classic watches featuring (as you likely guessed) 3 standard hands and a classic dial.

All variations feature a swiss movement, sapphire crystal, and Unobtainium straps.

Jury II (2008)

An update to the original Jury watch, the Jury II sticks with the small 34mm size and polished design. Continuing to focus on the women’s market, the Jury II was available in white, black, and pink variations.

And with an updated dial, the Jury II features large numbers at the 2, 4, 8, and 10 positions. Between the $650 price and more “in your face” dial, it’s not too surprising that the Jury II wasn’t as popular as the original.

Judge II and Judge II Dual Time (2008)

In 2008, Oakley launched two new iterations of the popular Judge watch, retailing for $725+.

The first, Judge II, features a similar chronograph design as the original Judge with an updated dial. Similar to the Jury II, the Judge II dial emphasizes the 2, 4, 8, and 10 positions, in addition to the 6 within the sub-dial.

The second iteration, Judge II Dual Time, featured a sub-dial that allows you to track a separate time zone. Geared towards world travelers, the Dual Time also features a more tame dial similar to the original Judge.

Crankcase (2008)

With an analog face and modern design, the Oakley Crankcase first appeared on store shelves in 2008. Similar to the Holeshot, Oakley offered two versions of the Crankcase.

Originally retailing for $795, the standard Crankcase is a chronograph with a modern chunky design. In comparison, the Crankcase 3-Hand (45mm) and 3-Hand small (36mm) feature a simpler dial with just a date function. All three of these watches are submersible up to 100 meters (330 feet), though the latter versions offer a leather strap vs. the steel bands on the standard model.

Overall, this watch really embodies the HQ design elements of brushed aluminum/steel and the indestructible look. And be careful not to confuse this watch with the Crankshaft or Crankcase sunglasses that have similar names.

Warrant (2009)

A sleek, professional-looking watch, the Oakley Warrant features a thin and narrow case. One of the simpler Oakley watches ever made, this timepiece is still a show-stopper.

And with a 39mm case size, combined with an Unobtainium bad, this watch looks great on almost anyone’s wrist.

Timebomb II (2009)

The successor to the first-ever Oakley watch, the Oakley Timebomb II launched in 2009, just 10 years after the original. And it came with a price tag to suit it – initially retailing for $2,700!

The watch itself features an updated Timebomb design with bolder lines and curves that pop. And with an automatic Swiss movement, this watch comfortably fits in Oakley’s Elite lineup.

It eventually gained additional notoriety with the launch of the Livestrong Limited Edition in 2011 (pictured below). This limited edition colorway retailed for just over $3,000. And with distinct yellow accents, the rarity of the Livestrong Timebomb II only increased after Lance Armstrong’s scandal in 2013.

12 Gauge (2009)

Releasing in 2009, the Oakley 12 Gauge is a classic chronograph with a Tachymeter. This is one of the biggest and simplest Chrono designs from Oakley, with a typical rounded case and right-side buttons.

Retailing for $1195 and up, we’d say the price is a bit steep for a battery-powered watch.

Gearbox (2010) & Gearbox Automatic (2012)

Launched in 2010, the Gearbox brought a simple analog big-faced 47mm watch to the circuit. With a leather strap and oversized 3 and 9 on the face, the Gearbox is certainly a more modern take from Oakley.

Submersible up to 330ft (100m), many models are comprised of titanium, making it durable but light. And with the standard models retailing in the range of $600 and titanium models going for $1,000+, it’s relatively affordable.

Later in 2012, Oakley released the Gearbox Automatic. This updated version, as you might have guessed, features an automatic Swiss movement compared to the original Gearbox’s battery power. And along with the updated movement came an increase in price – the Gearbox Automatic retailed for $1895 and up.

Hollow Point (2011)

Introduced in 2011 alongside the Elite Full Metal Jacket (below), these two watches blew the doors off of previous prices. And despite being on the lower end of the two watches, the Oakley Hollow Point still cost $1,995.

But what may surprise you the most about this watch is its size! This Hollow Point is big, sporting a 48MM analog face. And like other Oakleys, the Hollow Point is submersible up to 350 feet (112 meters).

Today, these are harder to find, usually trading above the $2K retail price. But prices have come down a bit in recent years leveling off at around $1800.

Elite Full Metal Jacket (2011)

As mentioned above, the Elite Full Metal Jacket is one of the most expensive Oakley watches ever released. Retailing at $8,995 – it was amazing to see in person. I had the opportunity to gaze upon it at a launch party at the San Francisco Oakley store back in 2011, and it was epic.

And one of the coolest features is an included chain that allows the owner to wear it as a pocket watch as well (a first for Oakley).

And as a part of the Elite lineup, this was a limited edition piece with only 100 ever made. But it’s not a surprise that with such a massive price tag, it didn’t jump off the shelves. Trading in the same realm as many high-end perpetual timepieces, it was a mild disappointment that it, like other Oakley watches, required a battery.

Shortly after launch, we even saw some members even selling them below retail. Over the years, it has certainly gotten harder as most have fallen in the arms of the collectors, so you better come with your checkbook!

Transfer Case (2012)

Releasing in 2012, the Oakley Transfer case seems like a more affordable Gearbox. And with a retail price of $525 it pales in comparison to the $1900 Gearbox prices.

This watch features a similar circular design, modern dial, and rubber Unobtainium band to the Gearbox with some slight tweaks. And with a 40mm case, the Transfer Case was a great size for most wrists.

Fuse Box (2012)

One of the last true funky Oakley Watch designs, the Oakley Fuse Box features a half-moon-shaped case. Every watch after this feature a classic circular dial until the line’s demise. So there’s something enjoyable about imagining the watch designers trying for one last Jim Jannard-era-inspired creation.

And with a 43mm case and modern chronograph design, the Fuse Box still delivered on performance. Unfortunately, its $895 price tag and the dwindling market for Oakley watches would make this a general dud.

Bottle Cap (2013)

The only watch released in 2013, the Oakley Bottle Cap, is a fairly simple design. With a round case and an array of colorful dials featuring modern numbers, this was clearly an appeal to the mass market.

Originally selling for $550, the Bottle Cap is Swiss-made with a gold-plated, five-jewel quartz movement. But the rubber Unobtainium band helps to make this watch more approachable for every day.

Kill Switch (2014)

Continuing with the simple circular once-a-year designs, the Oakley Kill Switch features rounded edges everywhere you look. Combining those elements with the oversized dial numbers, this watch just comes off as chunky. And that’s not to say oversized, but instead just full – like it ate too much Thanksgiving dinner.

Retailing for $695, the big selling point of the Kill Switch was interchangeable bezels so you could go from rugged to fancy in seconds. Although the Unobtainium strap keeps this firmly in the casual watch category.

Double Tap (2015)

The last Oakley watch ever released, the Double Tap, definitely went out with a bang. Originally selling for $795, this chronograph featured a disruptive design that reminds us of the Hollow Point.

And with a swiss-made movement, plus metal bracelet options, this watch is still loved by plenty of collectors today.

Unfortunately, this watch would mark the end of Oakley’s watch line, with Luxottica discontinuing design and production by year-end after its release.

Oakley introduced their first watch in 1998 with the Time Bomb, a pair which would continue to this day to be a fan favorite. Over the last 20 years, the popularity of Oakley Watches as a cult favorite has exploded. This guide will dive through the most popular watches Oakley has release, how much they cost and where you can find them!

To start off, I'll say I've owned a number of Oakley watches over the years (Timebombs, Minute Machines, GMT), but know there are other members on here with many more so feel free to comment your info below and I'll add to this post!

1. Oakley Timebomb
First up on our list is where it all started the Oakley Timebomb, this ~41MM Analog timepiece originally retailed for ~$1300 back in 1998. The piece is classic Oakley 90's styling with the chunky spinal design looking like it could be in Blade Runner with a rounded glass face which adds to the turn of the century futuristic feel.

If you're looking to pick up an original Timebomb your best bet will be in the exchange areas, where a member even sold an entire collection or eBay as Oakley no longer sells them. If you do end up grabbing one, make sure to read through this useful guide on how to repair original timebombs.

2. Oakley GMT
The Oakley GMT hit the market in 2003, with an analog face and a steel backbone. This watched introduced the idea of a "World City hand", which allowed the owner to switch timezones automatically based on selecting the city they were in around the bezel. Oakley continued with the spinal design on the steel wrist band from the Timebomb, but gave it and updated look with the polish and sapphire glass. Compared to the timebomb however, the GMT was cheaper retailing for only $600. These can still be had on eBay, Craigslist or the forum marketplace for a couple hundred dollars and up depending on the condition.

3. Oakley Crankcase
The Oakley Crankcase hit the market in 2008, with an analog face and modern design. Not to be confused with the sunglasses of the same name. The crankcase has a chunky but more traditional wristband, similar to more traditional links. The watch originally retailed for just shy of $800, with some colorways going for $895. Additionally Oakley offered a "Three hand" and "Three hand small" edition of the Crankcase, all of which were submersible up to 100 meters (330 feet), though the latter offering leather straps vs. the steel bands on the standard model. The watch really embodies the HQ design elements of brushed aluminum/steel and the indestructible look. Once again although Oakley sells sunglasses with the same name, they no longer carry the Crankcase watch.

4. Oakley Minute Machine
The Oakley Crankcase hit the market in 2007, with a distinct squared design, taking styling cues from the crankcase and 2000 era of Oakley design. The Minute Machine, often abbreviated "MM" has become a favorite amongst Oakley collectors. It features an analog 42MM face, and is submersible up to 330 feet. The highlight of this model is the Diamond Dial edition which offered a gem at each hour hand position.

5. Oakley Hollowpoint
Introduced in 2011 alongside the Elite Full Metal Jacket (below), these two watches blew the doors off of prices for Oakley watches (outside of various limited editions previously introduced). The Hollowpoint was on the lower end of the two, retailing for approximately $2,000, with a 48MM face, submersible up to 350 feet (112 meters) and an analog face. Today, these are harder to find, usually trading above the $2K retail price - you'll need to keep an eye on the aftermarket for one of these or post a Want to Buy ad in the exchange areas.

6. Oakley Elite Full Metal Jacket
Mentioned above, the Elite Full Metal Jacket was the high end watch released alongside the Hollowpoint. Retailing at $8,995 - it was amazing to see in person. I had the opportunity to gaze upon it at a launch part at the San Francisco Oakley store back in 2011 and it was epic. A thing of beauty an included chain that allows the owner to wear it as a pocket watch as well (a first for Oakley). It's not a surprise with such a massive price tag, it didn't jump off the shelves - trading in the same realm as many high end perpetual time pieces, it was a mild disappointment that it, like other Oakley watches, required a battery. As it introduced on the Elite line, there are a limited amount of these ever produced - only 100, you can still find some online - like this member selling there's shortly after the launch in 2012 for only $8,000! Over the years it has certainly gotten harder as most have fallen in the arms of the collectors so you better come with your checkbook!
