Timebomb 1 - Original Owners - Rumor from a factory rep

I have spent the last few days digging around researching TB1's and wanted to ask a question based off of my firsthand account of Oakley history. Watch serial number 11 is what got me thinking about this post.

Flashback to 1998-1999. I was working in a bicycle shop that had a lot of Oakley. We were very committed with clothes, shoes, etc... Even talk with the rep about Oakley having "Oakley Stores" and maybe we needed to consider owning one.

The rep (name I am not sure I should drop for privacy reasons) was showing me his polished TB1 with a two-digit serial number. It sounded like almost all of the sub 100 serial numbers would be finding their way to factory reps, friends of Oakley, or pro athletes with the corresponding jersey to serial number.

Is there ever any talk about the low serial number watches and if the person selling/owning the watch is the original owner? Example, watch sn# 11 was polished and blue, so I am wondering who was famous with the number 11 and a sports team that repped blue?

Thanks for the chat!

Follow up with examples of #11 being a blue Timebomb 1

Drew Bledsoe #11 played for the Patriots until 2001 and their color is blue...

Isiah Thomas was retired but #11 and played for the pistons, which are blue...

Mark Messier #11 Rangers and Canucks, also both teams that use blue...

Just curious. :)
