I am sorry, it's a nice watch and everything, but I fail to see why it cost so much. They price it like it's a Patek or Rolex and it's just an Oakley.

just an Oakley
I honestly think that is the first time in the history of this website that anyone has ever said those words! To each their own.

I think it's a nice piece Terror.

I have felt many times over when it comes to Oakley's watch line that I am quite happy to fall into an 'ignorance is bliss' catagory. I'm not really a watch guy, so I don't know all that much about watches. I'm just an oakley guy, and oakley makes watches. Many of those watches seem pretty cool. I don't have the knowledge of watch components and brands in order to place the value proposition of Oakley watches.

The FMJ is rediculously expensive. But it is also just something uber expensive in an expensive hobby. Besides, if I already had all the TBII variations - where else to go but for the FMJ?!

if it helps as a comparison today i bought an omega seamaster planet ocean 600 watch for $900 bnib!...thats 10% of the price of the FMJ......i love the FMJ but for 9K, boy thats some serious cash and in all honesty, as much as i love oakley, if i was going to spend that on a watch id spend it on a specialist watch make, but ive no need as my omega is uber nice and uber quality too......but agreed what has terrorism got left to buy!

I'm with you, Paul Flipj.
But nothing against Mr. Terror, of course.
It's his God-given money, he spends it however he deems proper.

Personally, I've been collecting watches about as long as I've been collecting Oakleys. I don't have a lot, but I have 30-40. I certainly love the Oakley watches, but have always felt their pricing on watches was definitely overpriced. I do, however, plan to get a Hollow Point at some point, so apparently I don't feel too strongly about that view LOL!

It's a nice piece and if I have the coin to pay that for a watch, I probably would just because I love the brand so much.

flippj - You got a Planet Ocean for $900??!! That is a freaking BARGAIN. 42 or 45mm?

They retail for $4,500 new, so half the price of an FMJ.

EDIT: Ah yep, just saw your post in 'other latest purchase thread'.

I'm actually glad someone brought this up, because to an extent I agree: the watch is very, very expensive, and honestly it's questionable whether or not the value is commensurate with its price.

As others have stated, however, I too am an Oakley fan. I like things that are unique, and things that are Oakley. At one point in the not-too-distant past I was surfing eBay checking out Rolexes... but honestly not a sigle Rolex (especially considering the design) moved me. The movement/overall quality may be better in a Rolex, but as another O-Review member once put it: I would rather acquire the FMJ which has a unique Oakley design and still exhibits a high degree of quality than a Rolex with a "cookie-cutter design".

So rather than drop thousands on a Rolex I opted for the FMJ. Oakley design. Unique. Only 100 produced. Exclusive.

As requested, here are a few more pics. Enjoy, ladies & gentlemen:

Thank you again, gentlemen.

Marcel, it carries some weight due to its size. The aspect that I do like, however, is that when you flick your wrist the counterweight (kinetic generator) seems to spin incessantly. Must be due to the larger design, but it works great. The date/day indicator is also a nice touch (much like a Rolex).
