    Good point. After the buyer takes it to the Kiosk at the mall to get a new battery and the clerk strips the screwholes and scratches the the crystal. True story on a Diesel Watch I had years ago. That's how I winded up being friends with my jeweler. No more kiosks.

    Yes very true. I hear ya on asking questions. I did the same, was told it worked perfectly a month ago and only needed a battery. Also, claimed no scratches and of course the band had multiple scratches on at least 4 links. That's essentially what happened to mine. I only had to pay for parts. I think I paid $165 for the watch so in the end it wasn't a deal. I have been looking for a deal on a Double Tap Stealth but there's no way I'm dropping $700 for an ebay special.

    Some countries including Japan don't allow shipping of items with batteries.

    If anyone lives in SoCal you can take your watch to Oakley HQ and have any battery replaced, even if it's still working. I bought a couple of MM recently, one that the battery was dead. I took them both into Lake Forest customer service and they replaced both batteries and checked them out when they were open.

    How will the buyer know it was done by a qualified person?

    I'm not talking about a receipt from the kiosk at Sears. I'm talking about a reputable name like Oakley HQ, perhaps a jeweler or watch repair place. At least I could call and research who they are. I wouldn't be very comfortable if it wound up being some retailer that just sells watch batteries and has no real credentials on a handwritten receipt.

    For quartz watches I only have trust in 2, Mike at HQ and me. With autos I will only take it to where Oakley sends them to, Hayes Jewelers. Not to far from HQ.
