What exactly do I need to have in the watermark? Right now it shows the camera number, date, and time.

Thanks for the responses guys. I'm sure everything will work out in the end, I just hope the insurance co is fair.
@ oogie - the insurance company isnt requiring me to replace the 50 or so pairs with new ones but they have made that an option. Basically told me I could go to oakley.com and pick 50 similar priced pairs if I just wanted to have new glasses. I dont see that as a reasonable choice for me because most of the new designs arent really what Im into. The second option they have given me is to take a depreciated cash value based on how long I have had a particular pair and what they would be worth to replace, the way I understand they have some kind of formula to figure depreciation. On most of the pairs this sounds pretty fair but for some more rare, older, and harder to find stuff the value is substantially higher for me to replace now than what they were originaly worth. This is the part im worried about.
@terrorism - Before this I had never really considered something like this happening to my house, but since I am feeeling alot like you in that Im not wiling to go through it again. I had a security camera system installed and im shopping alarm monitoring companies now. My insurance company hasnt mentioned any numbers as of yet but I will keep in mind threatening taking my business somewhere else if it gets out of hand.

Hi guys, not sure where to post this but I wanted to see if anyone has gone through this before. I've been a member here for years, havnt been on much for the last couple but try and browse the general forum as much as I can.
Anyways, my house was burglarized while i was at work a couple weeks ago and besides clearing my house out they stole almost my entire collection. Over 50 pairs and 6 oakley watches. It was a very devastating thing to come home to. My home owners insurance is in the process of putting a value to my oakleys now, here are my options for the readily available stuff; they basically said I can pick out 50 pairs of similar value that are currently in production or take a depreciated value in cash. Does anyone have any advice on how Im not completly screwed here? Im not really into the new styles, I browsed oakley.com and found only a handful of pairs I'd like but on my older stuff I feel like I'm not going to do very well. I dont see how they can depreciate glasses that are worth more now then when I purchased them just because I've had them a few years? ie the original romeos, mars, juliets, pennys, and signature pairs. I understand a 3 year old pair of fives or something being worth less than a new pair but not the xmetal stuff and limited pairs. So how can I value these other pairs is?
If anyone has any insurance knowledge for me or has been through a similar situation any advice would be appreciated.
Sorry for the long post,

i ended up doing it myself, couldnt wait to get time to take it in, i used a tiny screwdriver to push them and they came right out. took less than 5 minutes to remove 3 links and put it back together.

oic thanks guys. Somebody around here has to have a connection inside to get us icons alone without having to swap em. one more question, do you use any glue when reapplying ?
Sep 5, 2007 6:50 AM
is there a way to order different icons? i always see you guys customizing and changing icons, can i call customer service and order them?

ok thanks guys, i called warranty and they told me to send them in and they would take a look at them
Mar 22, 2007 3:24 AM
hey guys i purchased a pair of scripts for a friend of mine and the top of the right lens popped out of the frame. i have tried putting it back in but it seems no matter what i do i end up with the same thing, the top part hangs out just a little. is this something warranty will cover or is she just screwed?
thanks for the help

I too read the forum almost daily but rarely post. i think this whole thing is just rediculous and i know how much rick contributes to the site, his collection gave everybody something to strive for and he was always willing to help other o-reviewers out. if he doesnt return he will be missed greatly.
