    I had my timebomb sent into oakley for the THRID time for another problem... The first time they sent it back and it worked for a whole 3 days and the second time it came back as broken as it was when i sent it in and now its there and they told me they discontinued the part that is broken.... To stay off a tangent, I just wanted to know if it's possible to get an internal generator for the timebomb somewhere online or if there is anyone that could fix it? Oakley's offer kinda pissed me off. They said they'd either send the watch back or give me a $400 dollar credit (35% of original retail value) that has to be spent on a watch of equal or greater value (at least $1300) If i was crazy and wanted to spend over $1000 on another watch i'd do that, but times are changed and i just want to get the watch i've had for years fixed. It was made in 2000 if that helps.

    Is this an automatic, self-winding movement? If so you're probably referring to the winder. The mainspring in a mechanical watch drives the movement and sets the watch's beat. There's a weight that winds itself as it spins from moving your wrist. Watch repair specialists can likely just drop in the right movement, or repair the existing one.

    Oh, and welcome to the forum.

    As far as I heard, Oakley was still servicing Time Bomb's a few months ago.
