The 10th anniversary of the MM is coming up in a few years. If the line survives that long, i would love to see an "Elite" version of the watch. - Oak


It would look like the Cerakote custom Josh made, but with an Elite Icon.

How about gearbox, people? Is it a watch to have?

If it speaks to you, it's a watch to have. Most collectors seem to view it favourably and love the case. Personally, I've lost interest and am indifferent towards it nowadays. Maybe i'd like it more if it had come with a cool bracelet rather than a strap, but I generally just shrug my shoulders.

I really like my gearbox
It's been on the radar for a while but its a big watch
Hollow point is still my number 1 watch want, I believe Dann is temporarily looking after mine ;)

Jokes aside I'm after the white face and a MM.

I have a Gearbox. Its nice, probably a bit thick/big. Also a tad weighty.

With the MM, I admit, never ever been a fan. But, more i look at them, more i think about getting one. I do like the red dial version and silver dial version too.

Lastly, I'm in love with 12 Gauge. Only issue is, no stainless steel/carbon fiber bracelet with the blue dial version, poop

They state that oakley released this polished Minute Machine in limited edition. IS that true? Anyone knowing about it?

Yes, both polished MMs were released in limited numbers. The other piece is with blue sub dials.

I'd argue that the black was limited. I remember when the polished/black dial came out I was told it was limited. Then it disappeared and when the polished/blue dial came out the polished/black dial reappeared again and that's when I got mine.

Second waves seem to be common on so called limited editions. No sense limiting sales in that account, I suppose.

It could be many reasons. It could be the watch didn't sell through and became available again after the tri-weekly/monthly reconciliation of inventory. It could be it was transferred from another store. For instance, the Alum C6 and 10th Anniversary TBII bounced around a lot. So the watch is limited edition, but we don't necessarily what the final numbers are; it could be 150, 300, or it could just be limited to method of distribution (e.g. O Store, Vaults, key accounts). "Limited Edition" has always been a loose term with Oakley unless the product is etched with a finite number.
