This is my first pair of the non-X metal Titanium frames & they are unbelievable! So lightweight you don't even remember they're metal frames. Same frame as the E Wire but so superior. Ti Frames are a must!

Frame: Titanium
Lens: Titanium Iridium

Something like 9 or 10 years later, I am still wearing my T-Wires. I have managed to keep these bend and scratch free over the years. I just recently called for replacement earsocks, and Oakley sent them free of charge. These are definitely my favorite O's.

I had the 3rd pair of these in the UK behind the 2 other demo pairs there were, and they were just mindblowing.
Along with the E Wire,one of Oakleys first true fashion sunglass, but,double the price of the E Wire, quite exculusive.

Styled just like E-Wires but as light as a feather! These are great for everyday/all day use. Very comfortable and lightweight.

Lens: Titanium Clear
I received these pair as a wedding present. I wanted a clear pair, so I could live my dream of having a pair for every lighting condition. The are good indoors and at night, and really the only time you should wear them is in very bright sun, specifically during the morning when the sun is low. They still block 100% of UV light, so really you're getting the proper protection at times when sunglasses would be silly. Which is never, but some people think otherwise.

One of my favourite, most worn pairs. These are really comfortable and suit my face very well. Obviously being Ti they are very stong and have resisted the 'sit' test with no problems! I've sent them back to Oakley UK on one occasion for a tune up, as the earstems had become loose and no amount of tightening the screws helped. They came back good as new. The only problem I have with these is that the right hand lens has become a bit scratched up.

these sunglasses are amazingly light! the first time i picked them up i could not believe how featherweight they were. of course that translates to all day wear comfort, but unfortunately i think they look a bit too small on me. with my experience these feel even smaller than the current Square Wire 2.0 SH. the Titanium Lenses look different than all other Ti-Clears i've encountered, these definitely are darker with a more reflective mirror coating. also, the "TITANIUM" laser etched lens is cool. very nice set of sunglasses.
TERRORISM -
Frame: Titanium
Lens: Titanium Iridium

Not being a fan of the design of the original T-Wire, Oakley's decision to redesign the frame to resemble the Square Wire was more than welcome. The frame is durable and extremely lightweight, making you almost forget you're wearing these glasses after a while. Titanium Iridium also compliments the frame (not just in terms of semantics), and provides an excellent view in a variety of light conditions. Perhaps the only drawback is the lack of spring hinges, which would have truly set this pair on a pinnacle. Since other "Titanium Wires" with spring hinges were later released, they would probably be a better choice.

Lens: Titanium Iridium
Having owned both the T-wire 2.0 and the Titanium Square Wires with spring hinges, there are more differences than the hinges.

The T-wires have ever so slightly smaller lenses, so they are NOT interchangeable with the square wire lenses. Also, the icons on the temples are embossed, where as on the Squares they are the more traditional applique.

I prefer the T-wires simply due to their rarity. Other than that, it's pretty much a tossup. I didn't find the spring hinges to be a tremendous advantage, and they did add some weight.

Frame: t-wire
Lens: prescription

not sure if there are any differences between the t-wire and the t-wire 2.0.

anyway, mine are the non-hinge t-wires, not the hinged titanium square wires. absolutely awesome. i am a believer of less is more. no hinges means no extra weight, and 1 less (or a pair) components to fail.

i own the a-wires, e-wires, and c-wires. the t-wire is by far my favorite. i have used them for the past 5 years now (?), and they still look new. i just have to change the ear socks and nose pads. in fact, they are on their 3rd set of replacement socks and pads.

titanium is the way to go!

Snagged these in the Hollywood O-Store. Very 'Matrix' like; the external lens reflectiveness is outstanding. Provide a very dark contrast for bright conditions. I wouldn't recommend these for overcast or 'darker' days. Very, VERY lightweight. They stand out from other Wire frames.

The standard black box. I would have expected Oakley to do something special for their titanium model. The picture however is very stylish. The cardboard itself is not of very good quality but of course it was only made to last until the sale. Who could of thought their would be crazy people who wanted to keep the box?
Inside is a piece of cardboard folded into a Z to prevent your glasses from sliding around but unfortunately that's all the protection your glasses are going to get.

I love the lens cut on this. It's like how does one put art in a ordinary circular lens? Oakley did just that with the Tailend. Being that it's a rimless (upfront), the Tailend design made it look like it has a bezel type of effect. I really like the texture, color reflections and the integrated look of the lens perimeter especially with the fire iridium. By the way, a quarter frame do exist and is hidden behind the top lens. I believe this "hidden half orbital behind the lens" design is a first of this kind with the "Tail" series and is pretty clever.

I am also loving the stem because it comes with a spring hinge and most of all, the pig's tail coil effect. I was getting tired of the straight stem and the hammerstem is somewhat dated so to have a new stem design is a real nice addition to the Oakley line of cool stems. I believe this pig's tail coil effect is also an Oakley first of its kind.

On the other hand, the outer box is ordinary but the hardcase is sub par and well below what I expected. I wish it came with the aluminum case like the Sliver F.

Final thought: These pairs are awesome but it will only be for display purposes as it looks ridiculous on me hence I give it a 4 star.

Got the carbon/Prizm daily polarised version from the O Store in London. They'd only had them in stock for a week or so. I really love this. It's almost Oakley being derivative of themselves, but it still feels new, and provides a much needed injection of weirdness for the 'normal' line of glasses to go with the delicious insanity of the Madman in the new X-metals. This has a wonderful tinge of mad scientist, and I can see echoes of everything from the original E-wires, through to Moon, Mars, styling nods to the projections on the old X-metals which were due to screws holding the orbitals together, even a hint of Madman. They're great. They probably won't suit everyone, but they are light but solid feeling. The spring hinges work nicely, grippy without being too tight. The fit for me (fairly large head) is great. The lenses give pretty good coverage, and the Prizm Daily polarised is very very similar to one of my alltime favourite functional lenses, the OO Black Iridium Polarised. A rose base tint with great polarisation. These have less iridium mirror on the front, meaning eyes are visible, but from a functional point of view the lenses are excellent and from an aesthetic angle the shape is different and unique. A future classic. Now if they only did an emerald polarised version...
The Game -
Frame: Pewter
Lens: Fire Iridium

This is what the Madman should've been, a circular lens with good wrap. Instead we got something that is very unique but not much function. At least they got the tailend right. A great lightweight wire frame that stands out above the rest. Spring hinge is sturdy, the case is functional and the coverage is superb. If there's any down side in my opinion is the color combinations, I hope they do more. I'd love to see a ruby variant and please more polarized options. The daily prizm is not for me. I went with the fire lens because it stands out the most.
Surfaced -
There is so much classic Oakley design on the Tailend. It's easy to pick out inspiration from the Zero 0.1/2/3, the Mars/Moon, and the Madman which debuted about 2 months earlier. I love the laser-etched frosted effect around the lenses; it not only looks great, but you can handle Tailend's by the lenses without smudging them. The icons are a good, proportionate size. The ear stems have a very angular flourish just past the icons which compliments the "tabs" on the lower part of the lenses. The nose bridge has a spear-like underside. Reminds me of the new X-Metal nose bridges, or even the old Metallica typestyle. But it's subtle enough here.

Fits my face perfectly whereas the Madman has too much distance from my temples. The spring hinge well-implemented and quite necessary for a frame this small. By comparison, a larger frame like the Madman should not have spring hinges. Solid C5 aluminum frame. I have Carbon with Prizm Daily Polarized. A classy, but still edgy/non-conformist look. Very pleased. Would've been great if the nose bombs were Unobtainium like the ear socks. Also would've been great if Luxottica didn't make them in China. Oh well, can't have it all. I'm satisfied.
Obsidian -
Frame: Carbon/Satin Black
Lens: Prizm Daily Polarized/Grey

These frames are extremely light to the point that you forget you're wearing them. The spring hinges also help give it a secure fit. The square lenses and faux rimless design is also very nice. They are relatively large design so if you prefer smaller frames they may no suit you but for most people they should be fine.

Frame: Iron Wood
Lens: VR28 BI Polarized

I'm not sure what Oakley was thinking - why would I pay $235 for sunglasses that have all the features and style of a Fives 3.0? At least put unobtainium on the earsocks and nose pieces! Sure, I look sexy (hard to avoid), but the headache and cherry red marks on my nose are hard to ignore - and I only wore them for 5 minutes in the store!

Lens: VR28 Black Iridium Polarized

Found excellent deals on these during the holidays so took a chance, and at least looks-wise, these may be the most gorgeous sunglasses I've ever come across, at least with how they work for me. Damn I look good. :) And these things are a lot more comfortable than I expected, too. Love the hydrophobic lenses that I've but had on things like the Radar/Flak/Ti Square Wire/Nanowire prior. The standard price may be up there for something that's not for sports, but at least for me, these things are freakin' gorgeous. Love 'em. Don't know that they're for everyone (at least I hope not), but these would make for great beach glasses in particular. For some reason, they make me think of designs that would look good with a light baby blue iridium lens, too, though I don't think Oakley makes one. I'd love to get some customization options in the future, but current models are outstanding.

Even with the case, I can't see these being a $235 pair of Oakley sunglasses. I think at around $150 I would have thought to buy these new. They're not overly light, but I don't think they're meant to be. I love the marble look of the inside, and the thicker classier frames are nice to have sometimes. I'm a big fan, in general, I just think they're overpriced as new.

Frame: Brown Tortoise
Lens: Tungsten Polarized

These are an incredibly classy and "rich" pair of glasses and seem to be totally under rated in my book. Where do I start?

They just may be the best fitting pair of Oakley's on me yet. I have a medium sized head, but a kinda wide nose, which makes most glasses sit a little high on me. These sit on my face like they were custom built for it, perfect. They wrap around my eyes really close, but my eye lashes don't touch, awesome. The lens coverage is incredible, for me only being topped by oil rigs, MD's and maybe spikes. So far, they are very comfortable, but time will tell for sure. Unobtanium on acetate just doesn't seem right in my book.

They are uber nice in the looks department. The finish is rich and very natural looking with a contrasting inner layer that looks very nice. The hinges are sweet with imprinted Oakley details on the inside that you can only see when the arms are shut. The overall styling cues may be very similar to Fives 3.0, but the application is totaly different. They are a bit bigger and way classier in every way. Trying to compare these to Fives 3.0 is like comparing a Pontiac G8 to a BMW 7 series. Similar looking, and the Pontiac is a great bang for the buck, but the Beemer is superior in pretty much every way.

Lenses don't get any better than these, top of Oakley's line, every option. They are polarized, iridium coated, hydrophobic coated, and have the anti reflective coating on the inside. These lenses are wonderful to look through for just about any occasion, great contrast, and much nicer to look at than plain bronze lenses.

I got a great deal on this pair, but I can actually see why Oakley put a $235 price tag on these. I look at it this way, these seem to be aimed at "designer" glasses that can cost way more and are total crap (at least optically). These have Oakley's top lenses just like the Nano's which are $300. The case is a nice touch too, and the cleaning cloth seems to be much better than the standard bags.

I need more time with them to be sure, but these just might be my new favorite pair for casual wear (so far, these are my 33rd pair of a growing collection).

This is my 11th pair of Oakleys, 9 of which are still in rotation. They look great but fit too close to my face. The top of my cheeks and my eyebrows touch the frames which takes a little while to get used to. Otherwise they are pretty awesome. Not sure they will replace my titanium spikes as my go to pair but they will definitely get some face time.

I love these glasses! I worked at Sunglass Hut when they came out. Usually there was always some sort of hype for any new pair of Oakley's we got, but suddenly these just showed up without warning. We had no idea what they were and if they were for guys or girls, etc. Regardless, I loved them! We only had a total of two pairs. I sold them both real quick since I loved them so much, but then we never got another one in. I spent the next few years looking for a pair at all different Sunglass Huts and Oakley stores and never was able to find one. Just FINALLY found them on the Oakley Vault site and bought them. They're unpolarized for some reason, but I still love them!

I bought this pair for my mom for Mother's Day, and she is very happy with them. The C5 alloy frame holds up against a lot of abuse, and the high light transmission lenses are good for most driving conditions. Sun-in-your-eyes light may prove to be too much for the lens, but all other light short of nighttime, should be pleasantly viewable with the Teaspoons. This should go for the rest of the color combos, since they all have light lenses. It should also be mentioned that they are for women only, in case you were curious about them and happen to be of the male persuasion.

This pair of glasses is way too small. I just got them to add to the collection. I would not recommend this pair. I don’t like the way they look nor the way they fit MY face. They are way to small the name does them well “teaspoon” and I think a lot of people will agree w/ me after they see Dann’s picture oh I’m sorry I ment to put Danniella’s picture.

Frame: Silver
Lens: Emerald Slate

Very small but sophisticated little shades. They are comfortable and light never any weight troubles. The Silver with Emerald Slate looks very classy. The Emerald slate lens was made famous by Ichiro Suzuki a male baseball legend, of course he wore this lens shade in his Juliets. It's great to see it appear in these teaspoons! Damn it Oakley say these are for women but I think guys can get away with wearing it (but only the right colour combos though!), well I do myself and I don't get any funny looks. The frame by default has a slight upward slant which looks femine to a degree so all I did was carefully force the frame structure downward until the lenses looked more A Wire shaped, and they look suitable for men now. But of course if you are a guy only get these 3 colour combos : Silver/Emerald Slate or Silver/Black Irdium or lastly just Pewter/ Black Irdium.

As seen by the two versions, Oakley started releasing models with the generic Yellow box before finalizing the final artwork. Here the teaspoon has a nice blue box that compliments the female audience its designed for.

Ooooooh yeah. The rim-lit picture of the bald dude wearing the Full Metal Eye Jackets will be with me forever. That's the first image of Oakley that I ever saw. I was hooked. I bided my time, and saved up my seventh-grade allowance until I could finally afford a pair of my own. I ended up with the Cobalt/+Red version, which I loved to death, and wore into the ground. Ten years later, that ad still looks cool.
DoctorCrip -
So artistically done, just as pretty much everything, especially from this time period, Oakley does is. I agree with Airborne, the image with the Eye Jackets is one of the coolest images Oakley has ever done. Inside HQ they have individual plaques of these lining some of the hallways and in the museum. I wish I had held onto the few of these that I had from back in the day.

Color: Grey with Black toe/heel/ankle and white icon logo.

Again on originals. I bought a pair of Tech socks a few years back to use when I run and Bike. Thinner than a normal crew sock with a more spandex like fit. Easier to allow your foot to breathe. Excellent for what I use them for but not for every day use.

Like Kingphilbert I have the older, one tone style with icon O on the top of the sock. Bought mine in 02

I have two pairs of Teeth, my first, the Grey/Black looked so cool and fitted really well, despite my narrow feet. I gave them a really tough time over two years and they held out strongly until the inside foam started falling out. Then I got onto my dealer for a black and yellow pair, and he managed to get me one of the last pairs in the UK. They look sooooo cool. You'd be surprised how many people double take at them. All in all, a cool and comfortable shoe.

Jonathan Tung -
Color: Black/red combo
There are complaints that I have with this shoe after having owned them for a few days. Other than that, they have got to be the best walking/runnign shoes I've had. Ever.

First, I don't really like the red 'teeth' on the rubber. But that's merely a preference.

We're talking about a guy who prefers the X-Metal/Black Iridium color combo over all the rest for his X-Metals.

I DO like the fact that the entire bottom of the shoe is made of one piece rubber. That way, I'm not going to have that retarded problem I had with my old Sketchers: they used to squeak all the time when water go in them.

The other thing I don't like is this, and it has a little less to do with preference than the first complaint.

Today I was hiking in these things. It had just rained pretty heavily the night before and the trail had gotten pretty muddy. By the time I had gotten to the bottom of the hill, my soles and tread were completely filled with thick grainy mud--only the red 'teeth' were still visible.

Ironically, this never happend with my Sketchers boots.

I think the problem lies with Oakley's very agressive, very large surface area under it's industrial/assault footwear. Crap loves to hide in it. I had to wash it off in a creek before I walked into the house. So, while the tread is great in dry situations, beware---you might lose your traction in mildly wet to absolutely soaking dirt and mud.

I've got the laceless teeth, and have been very happy with them. The blue teeth that I have present a bit of a neoprene/wetsuit look to the shoe, which is nice to have something different. Great fit, very comfy.

Bought these 3 or so years ago as a pit shoe at the drag races. They're so comfortable I wear them every day! They hold up really well as I've had them and wore them a ton and they still look good, even after abuse such as oil spills and stuff at the track. The soles are starting to wear through in some places, but it's probably the most wear I've ever gotten out of a pair of shoes, and they're the most comfortable shoes I've ever worn. I like them so much that I picked up a spare pair last year for when I finally wear these out.

They're currently only available at the Rolling O store at NHRA events, or on Ebay if you can find them.

These run about a half size big. I normally wear a 13 but in the teeth low (and big teeth and the black/red teeth I also have) I wear a 12.5.

These are a good inexpensive Oakley model. They resemble the Scalpel, but the lens is slightly longer. Black metal icons are nice against the matte frame. I have a medium head and these are large, but the wrap is really good and give great coverage. These are good everyday shades and I am digging them.

A great update to an Oakley classic with a nice touch of modern flare. If you like your sunglasses massive and don't want o drop a lot of coin this is the way to go.

Try to picture a frame that cross-breeds the Scalpel and Unknown, keeps the aggressive nature of the Monster Dog, and utilizes the lens size of a Hijinx!

Good addition to the line!

After a long period of research, I finally bought the Ten because, well, basically these are the only Oakley's that fit my head. I have high bridge and a large cranium and these fit perfectly.

Great fit and great look for us big heads.

Just scooped up this pair Custom. Also got Team Blue Icons to accent the lenses, which looks great. The lenses are big and the frames provide solid coverage, very limited light leakage from the sides or below. Not that expensive either. I agree that these are like a Scalpel-Monster Dog hybrid.

For my birthday, I wanted a pair of polarized Oakleys. I play a lot of Sand Volleyball, and wasn't sure if I wanted a pair of oakleys to play in or just have a back up pair. Maybe it's because I'm Asian but these fit a bit loose, so I won't be playing seriously in these. They do fit tighter when I wrap the arms around a baseball cap. Overall, they are a great pair for chill outdoor activities and style, but for playing I will grab a pair of half jackets.

Street Medic -
Frame: Matte Black
Lens: Warm Grey
A nice and solid pair of inexpensive Oakleys. As others have commented, these are not small frames or lenses and the new styling retains some of the Oakley edginess of old. They are comfortable, lightweight and fit my face just great. The wrap is excellent and light leakage around the frame at the temples is virtually non-existent. The warm grey lenses are relatively basic for Oakley but, that said, they seem to do the job just fine so no complaints. The slightly utilitarian look of the matte black plastic finish works for me and what I wanted - which was a pair of "everyday" working Oakleys. The only downside is that the wrap is so effective that it can "seal" the frames against ny face so that moisture from my my eyes can mist up the inside of he lenses. (I could do with vented lenses...!)

I bought mine tax-free in an air-side outlet before boarding a flight because I realised I'd forgotten to pack my shades so bagged a pretty good price. I previously had Juliet in Carbon / Black Iridium (just awesome) but those got stolen a while back and I always intended to replace them but had never quite gotten around to it. The new Tens, to be fair, are not Juliets - but then they were never going to be and that wasn't what I was looking for.
Overall, very happy with these and they get a five, not for being the absolute best ever but for fully achieving what they are intended to be.

Just got them,and they're really something.It's one of those pairs that make me forget the aversion I have for the recent fashion orientated oakleys,(g*ddamn you dispatch 2),and say that the original oakley is still alive and strong.What if the lenses are squared?Oakley used to release square lenses since the mid 90's with the square wires.There is such an amazing detail on this pair,both on the orbitals and the earstems,that make this such an artwork.Still I would like much less detail on the earstems,since the sculpture is not as succesful as on the unknown for example.Since I couldn't wear the unknown though,(too small for me),those were a great chance to own the dark grey finish.Not an fmj coating though,just a plain paint coating,it's coarse and shiny,very impressive.The fit is typical frogskin-ish,and unlike the older tens,this is one pair for medium to large heads.Although I enjoy them,I have to point out that oakley has messed things up a little,by releasing the X,which is supposed to be made for small to medium heads,and the new XX which is supposed to be for larger heads,vice versa.I don't know what made them to act so,but i still don't mind since I enjoy the outcome.It's so great that it made me forget the second thoughts I had about purchasing a signature pair,and I'm already considering buying even the ducati collection although I'm not a ducati fan.Once more,kudos to oakley again man!!!

Undoubtedly my favourite Oakley dealer ever, with one of the largest ranges in the UK. Extremely helpful and knowledgeable staff with many years experience in Oakley - nice to see an Oakley dealer in the UK staffed by hardcore Oakley fans such as ourselves, unlike many others. Ian and Duncan are always really helpful in helping you make decisions on a purchase and always offer great advice. Their range is also available online and they have an online outlet store for discontinued/end of line items at reduced price. In my opinion, there's no better OPD in the country. Check them out!

I can't say enough in praise for this excellent oakley dealer ship it combines an extensive oakley range with invaluable advice, and a reliable, fast online service. The shop is well set out with the full oakley eyeware and clothing range on display. The staff (Ian and Duncan) are friendly and are always on hand to offer sound advice. When it comes to buying oakley, for me, no one else will do.

I've been buying online from these guys for ages now and have always recieved top notch very fast service. I can't find anywhere else online that has anything close to the stock levels of Ten-Eighty. They stock quite literally everything every Oakley product in every colour and size. Thumbs up =D

I initially spoke to Ian about about a custom pair of Oakley Juliets.I found him to be extremley helpful.He said I could order anytime has they are open 7 days of the week.I said I would go to a dealer and try a pair on then get back to him.I did try a pair on but found the Spike suited me more so I phoned back spoke to Duncan on Wednesday.He said he had a pair of Oakley Spike - Pewter - Black Iridium Polarized in stock for £157.50.I asked if he would price match against www.cyclestore.co.uk f123.50.He said he could not has he has them in stock ad his prices are reflected against the fact that he keeps stock and most places are cheaper because they order to demand and do not actually stock so other dealers can be cheaper has they do not have their money tied up in stock like does.He said his stock holding is about a £40000 investment.If I ordered with him I could have next day with free delivery.He was right cycle store did not have stock.I would have to wait a week with cycle store and that was the case with most others.I asked Duncan that if he could not price match would he throw in a free case he said he would sort something out so I placed my order with him on Wednesday and when I got home from work on Thursday their they were waiting for me!!He sold the Oakley Spikes to me for £157.50 and the Oakley Soft Vault case to me for £10.Total £167.50.So it cost me about with the case about £20 more.I am not bothered at all has I did not have to wait and the service I received from http://www.ten-eighty.co.uk Duncan and Ian was totally excellent.I would highly recommend these guys has they are totally customer orientated and customer focused.Duncan and Ian pride themselves on this and I must state that they do a fantastic job of it.You wont go wrong.Has for the Spikes,I could not resist to wear them all day at the Goodwood Festival of Speed on Sunday even though it was raining all day.At first they seem heavy and the arms a bit tight but I soon got use to them and after a while I even forgot I had them on.This is my first Oakleys and now I know why they are the best glasses one can buy.The lens quality is amazing.Even in low light they seem to give excellent clarity.I am just waiting for proper sunshine to test them out properly.Go on buy your Oakley gear from Ian and Duncan at http://www.ten-eighty.co.uk.You wont be dissapointed.

I liked the Fives and their was no XX yet so I tried this for a larger fit. I had actually bought it for the color combo : ( It was a very heavy inflexible frame. The ear stems where bulky and poked in hard and they had a problem with fogging up and my others never had.

I would love to see Lava again though, maybe on Monster Dog.

I bought these for the colour combo. they are not very comfortable they have the same sort of look as the Twenty but more heavy and inflexible as Phil said.

I hope oakley will bring back the 10W40 Frame in something else though.

These were a big hit when first released,so another classic design from Oakley
There was a huge range of colour options so you could either be conservative, or go for a more cool/funky combination that changed the look of the sunglass.
Lenses are Easily popped in/out so you could buy new lenses, or just customise to change you mood.
Quite a large design, to compensate for the slightly smaller version (FIVES) for smaller faces.

Another classic oakley. I got this one on ebay for $20. Cheap huh? I like the color combo, very unique. But the glasses themselves, are well, boring. It's very plain and not eye-catching. They are also bulky compared to my other oakleys. But, its a nice addition to my collection, considering this model isn't made anymore and are hard to come by. I also agree with kingphilbert. I would love to see this color combination again, most probably on the Scar model. That would be sweet.

Back in 2006, I and a group of a few others wanted to undertake a fan coffee table book. Given the scope of the project, it quickly was abandoned, and we've learned so much more over the years since then, so this tome of wisdom, while expensive, is well worth the wait. While many of the ads and artwork have been seen before (although in lower resolution), the author has dug into the archives to find many new things that haven't been seen before. It's a fair combination of historical information but plenty of pictures, true to the coffee table name. It is a massive book and is beautifully bound with a presentation to match. For the fan who goes beyond just owning glasses, and really is into the company, this is a must-have.

Whoo hoo...first review. These are what I consider to be "oversized" glasses, with subtle frames and larger, squared off lenses. At first, I wasn't sure what to make of these, but they're a great pair to have now as they're working their way into my rotation. The feel, fit, finish, and look are very unique, but still mainstream enough not to look out of place.

Color: Black/Red

I was tearing my hair out because Oakley had stopped doing laceless designs since Flesh/Teeth, especially as there were no shoes with funky colours until Thirteen Twenty arrived. It's not laceless, but the Black/Red is funky, as is the Blue/Grey though I found the colours a bit hard for my liking. The shoes fit like gloves, one of the most comfortable pairs of shoes I've owned, especially the soles. They are nice and narrow so good if you have smaller feet. Another quality Oakley shoe that seems built to last.

Nice and comfy, but thought the sole was hard to walk on for a long time, pitty they werent released a couple of years ago before puma and nike etc jumping on the sparko f1 bandwaggon, gonna get the blue/greys as i think theyll go well with bootcuts, and the colour is a bit better, love the red, but you gotta dress with attitude to pull it off, very long thin and pointed, maybe for f1, but look weird from the top.

i love driving in my 1320. they provide great pedal feel. for walking, they're not that bad either, but could use a bit more cushioning. what i like about them are flat footbeds... so easdy on my arch, or lack thereof. the 1320's are great looking shoes, especially with a good pair of boot-cut jeans. i'm gonna have to hunt down a pair of Black/Red if i find them cheap enough.
BiGCoB -
color : Olive and brown

I'm actually using them daily and they are not the most comfortable shoes that Oakley have made.
The very flat sole is limiting the time you can spend walking and the lack of protection at the thin toe extremity is a bad point for the shoe longevity (there's already a hole in mine).

But I agree on the point that they are perfect for driving.
The basic colors looks formal enough to wear them at work with a pair of jeans
flippj -
juan pablo montoya gave me a pair, very cool to look at with a pair of jeans, feels nice, but as mentioned cannot walk for long periods of time on them due to the soles not having much cushioning-but after all, designed for driving not walking.

Color: Brown/Tan

Just got these in the mail last night...and used an outside meeting in Philly to try these out. At first, they felt almost tight. About an hour into driving, they started to fit to my foot...and from there on I forgot I was even wearing them.

The overall design is very similar to Adidas Adi Racer lows, which I've been wearing for a year or so. I must admit, though, that the Oakley pair has more support and padding and may be more practical in life. Overall, I'm very happy with the purchase.

Frame: Thread 4.0 Steel Brown/Thread 2.0 Polished Black
Lens: Oakley demo lenses

tried these new babies on just a few hours ago, at first impression when taking the frame out of the display cabinet, is that they're really thin and lightweight. after i put them on, i wasn't really impressed with 2.0 polished black cos it doesn't really suit me(too sharp looking). but i was totally blown away by the 4.0 steel brown. i totally dig the frame colour, the color is very elegant and make the 4.0 looks sickeningly stylish when wearing them(maybe it's just my skin color).

the earstems can flex and it must say it feels better on the head than even the famous spring hinged frames of O, but that's a personal preference. i wonder if those earstems can retain it's shape/curve in long term wear.., will it be able to retain the shape like those flexon frames no matter how(i mean just the earstems).

this is a rx frame that i actually really like amongst lotsa lotsa O's rx frames choices, and the feeling of being blown away trying them on is really on par with the chop top, if you know what i mean.

Frame: Pewter
Lens: Clear RX

Wow! Thin, light, and comfortable. These prescription frames are simply amazing. They seem to float on my head, even though I have thick lenses. The earstems flex, giving the sensation of spring hinges even though these frames are non-spring-hinged. The rest of the frame is very sturdy, especially considering how thin it is. Subtle angular details on the nose bridge and near the hinges are a nice touch. The embedded icons are cool, too.

According to the press release from Oakley, the Thump will be released at Circuit City, O Stores and Oakley.com. The asking price will be $400 for the 128Mb version and $500 for the 256Mb Polarized version.

The frame will be self-contained with no wires. Data is uploaded via USB 2.0, and stored in an internal memory chip. All controls will be handled on the outside of the ear stem. The lenses can be flipped up for low light conditions, and the ear buds are extendable and pivotable, so you can perfectly align them with your ears.

Available Holiday Season '04

Frame: Matte Black 128 Mb
Lens: Black Iridium

So I got to try out Thump yesterday. I think it was the 128 Mb version... I was too geeked about the mp3 player to notice if the lenses said "POLARIZED" or not. This thing is absolutely amazing! I still don't think I can afford one, but I kinda want one now.

I was surprised at how well they fit and felt on my face. Even without any Unobtainium, they stayed put, and the lenses did not touch my cheeks. The flip-up lenses felt a bit strange when in the up position, but I can see how they would be helpful if you want to keep listening to your music when you go indoors. These things are incredibly lightweight considering that there is hardware embedded in the earstems. I think that the location of the hardware helps give them a balanced feel... not too heavy on the nose. The control buttons are made of Unobtainium, too, which helps your fingers find them. The earbuds have a considerable range of motion and are quite comfy as well. Unfortunately, I forgot to look at myself in a mirror, so I don't know if I looked stupid or not. I'm going to assume that I looked like a badass.

Based on my 5 minute test drive, I give it 5 stars for a great blend of technology, styling, fit, and function. If you can afford it, get it.

My full review for the Thump is in that section, I'll just note the color combo here.

Red Camo is an awesome print on these glasses. The high shine finish is a nice change from the matte camo that we're used to. My only complaint is that there is a rim of unprinted red plastic on the reverse of the orbitals. Not a big deal, but it would look better if that was finished too.

I had some misgivings about these when I first heard about them but after trying them on, I'm very impressed. They're much lighter than I thought and the sound quality is superb. They stand out when you wear them but don't look any more outlandish than say, Plates or Splices. Despite the lack of Unobtanium, they're a nice snug fit and didn't get jostled at all when I hopped around the store. It's just too bad they're so expensive. Otherwise, cool product.

I love the flip up lense feature on these. Makes you feel like a baseball player. Anyways, I wish these came with more memory in this color. This colorway is one of my favorites along with the upgraded tribals. I wish they could've made these in at least 512 mb. That is the biggest drawback. With more memory, I would've given these no less than a 4. One negative about these are the ear buds. They don't fit perfectly in my ear.

I agree with "o-xide" Im a mountian biker and the buds started to make a crackling sound everytime the "Thump Thump" sound came on. and while it was playing a song (every now and then).

Great piece of technology though, maybe the Thump 2's will be a more sport rated pair.
Dann -
Frame: Red Camo
Lens: Black Polarized

I pre-ordered these as to get them as soon as possible. After two missed FedEx deliveries, I thought they'd never come, but at long last, they did.

I opened them up, put them on and was treated to a quick sampler of music. I have to say, they are a real treat. The sound quality is awesome, and they aren't uncomfortable at all. The ear buds work well floating away from your ear, but if you want loud music, then you'll have to insert them. This makes a snug fit, but can feel sharp at times, plus I'm sure that can cause some hearing damage if you're not careful.

The buttons are a little stiff. I wish that they would click rather then feel like rubber, but I can't complain. Uploading music is a snap. Just connect the USB cable, and plug&pray should pick it up. Then copy the music, disconnect and press play. The buttons are simple, and easy to navigate. The lack of display tend to make the file progression tricky, but what can you expect, the lack of wires more than makes up for all the things they wouldn't be possible on a system this compact.

Everyone I've shown it to, has only the highest compliments to say. It's surprising how widespread the knowledge of the Thump is. But with good cause, as it's a solid product.

Frame: Matte Black

So a few of my friends and I were invited to meet the portland area oakley rep last night, 11.1.04, by my good buddies at pdx gear for a little thump preview. He had a working model of the Matte Black 128mb and a 'blank' model of just about all of the other colors in the 128 and 256 range. Needless to say, the thump are incredible. Once you try them on and hear the full range of sonic potential there is absolutely no question that these are worth every penny. Not to mention the standard quality and innovation we have all come to expect from anything with an O. It really is an experience like no other. Extremely light weight for what it is. Holds its position very well on your face also. Ed was pretty accurate in his review above. They look kind of like a half jacket on steroids with the kick ass ribbed frame and the tough looking thick earstems.
Prescription is a no - go. The flip up lenses must be bolted in to secure them in place. This combined with the shape of a prescription lense would likely cause the lenses to crack and splinter. Oakley will not be selling replacement lenses for the thump, even though switching them out would be quite simple. The Rep also mentioned that we may be seeing some of the well known bold lense colors, like ice and emerald ( we will probably not see the fire due to oakleys moving away from the color because of the huge duplication of the lense by competing companies ), released later, however he could not Guarantee anything.
The rep mentioned that this has been in development for the last five years and that this is mearly the introduction of oakleys move into the electronic world. The thump will probably run for a couple of well deserved years as a power in the oakley lineup before we see the next advancement in this direction. The rep also teased me with the knowledge that oakley is seriously working with the military and possibly developing a HUD ( Heads up Display ) unit. So really, its only a matter of time. Dont you just love being an oakley fan.

Listened to the webcast when these were announced. Started my own countdown before they set one up on the website - my wife thinks i'm nuts. Picked them up the day they were released at Circuit City.

I use these things everyday at the gym. People think i'm an a**hole because I'm wearing shades in the gym - then they notice the earbuds...

My only issue is that i'm a pretty big guy and the earbuds lack about an 1/8th inch of fitting perfectly in my ears. Wish I could get a little bit longer bar for the earbuds...oh well - still the coolest thing i've ever seen!

Well, I finally broke down and got one. The price dropped below $200 at Circuit City, so I figured I should get one before all the Rootbeer ones disappear. No change from my other review.

I always like the Bronze lenses, and I certainly prefer the standard matte-finish Rootbeer frame over the polished version that is becoming more prevalent these days.

This is not made for heavy work-outs, the earboom starts to become loose and the button to cotrol the next song sticks causing the song to forward. Great technology but not for sports that requires sweating like running.

The looks is could be nice except for bulk on the side. Flip up lens is a nice feature but looks dorky. I would rather remove it.

Limited lenses available and non interchangable

Too pricly for so little memory.

Tried them on during the launch day here in the UK, and was amazed, especially with the ease of fitting and adjustment of the earstems. They are impressivley light, the flip lenses are built well and are not flimsy as I was expecting, and the sound quality is great. And the arms are not overwhelmingly thick, certainly not detracting from the look of the sunglasses when worn. I'd give them five stars if it wasn't for the high price per mb. Great innovation again from the O.

The 256 mb memory is ok but it carries enough songs to go on a jog. I'm a big fan of the flip up lenses but not so much of these polarized lenses. I do like to use them though when I run on the beach.

The finish color is awesome. It definitely gets attention cause of both the color and the earpiece for this isnt normal for most people to look at just yet. I just dont like wearing it much cuz like I said, everybody isnt used to seeing it yet. They think it looks weird lol! As far as the mp3 player, its awesome. Both quality of the sound and the flip lens

i just love my thump!!!

it´s easy to handle, fast to charge and looks awesome!
256 Mb ist just rigth to store music for a tour or daily way to work. more is not necessary because you have no display and would never found the right song in time. the style is the bomb and even with all the stuff in it it´s not to heavy!

there is just one small point what i don´t like.
that i can flip the lenses but the lenses are not easy exchangeable like a half wire.

anyway great combination between style and "hightech".

Matte Black 256mb.
Black iridium polarized.
52gr.

Late to the party (2017) but found a terrific deal on New Old Stock.
Very pleased.
Pro:
Iconic Oakley style, wonderful DSP sound, flip up lenses are worth having, sufficient battery/memory for 4+ hours of tunes, simple to add/delete songs (no proprietary junk software).
Con:
NO OEM lenses, not for love nor money. Aftermarket severely limited and questionable quality. No longer supported by Oakley, though oakleythumprepair.com is fast, honest, and reasonable. [B]Thump electronics are NOT compatible with wet, humid conditions: poor sweat resistance.[/B] No unobtainium, though in normal (non-exercise) conditions, they stay put sufficiently.
I also find a "Pro" in it's not Bluetooth compatible, as the ORockr is. I HATE answering my phone when I'm out and about...

Frame: Tribal 512mb
Lens: Black Iridium

Never mind that for the same price as one Thump, you could probably get an iPod Shuffle with twice the capacity AND Juliet. Thumps aren't about logical purchases, nor should you need to justify their purchase with logic. It's an emotional decision to buy one, since you're getting state of the art eyewear technology. Who cares if they're suseptible to water damage. All you care about is that you have 512mbs worth of storage and that the Tribal frame just looks SO FREAKIN' COOL. If I had the means, I'd buy these in a second.

Not much different then that Thump 1. The only reason why I picked these up were because the Tribal design is off the hook. Could always use another flip up sunglass too. Makes me feel like a baseball outfielder.

I knew I had to buy one the second I saw it on the website. Buying this is one of the smartest things I've ever done:) I know the memory is not very much but it's enough for me. Of course it takes some time to select between the songs but it's worth it. And Thump is unexpectedly comfortable. It's so cool. I definetely say buy one!

Frame: Matte Black 512

Lenses: Great Oakley quality as usual, I personally do not like the flip up lens look, but from first looking at these, you don't see it unless it's pointed out. There's really nothing you can do about it though.

Frame: The fit is amazing, these are very snug, but do not feel too tight. When running or working out, these are sure to stay on your head and not bounce around at all. This was very surprising considering these are solid O MATTER.

Music Storage: The storage capacity for these is very good. Considering it does not have a "screen" to view the songs, 512mb its plenty of space for someone at the gym or a runner. It can hold up to 120 songs that it claims to, and even more depending on the song's size.

Music Quality: I was extremely surprised at the sound quality that these had. I have used many pairs of high end headphones (bose, v-moda, etc) and the THUMPs were on the same level if not better. [They have no problem handling songs with a heavy bass either]

Overall: Despite the flip up lenses, these are amazing sunglasses. I do not think I would pay the retail price for these [especially considering you can get them for around $100 on ebay], but as an oakley fanatic, these are some sick shades. I would give it a full five skull rating, but those flip up lenses were not the best idea on Oakley's part.

I'm glad I bought these purely for my collection, as they do not fit my head at all. The glasses portion does, but the speakers sit about half an inch in front of each ear. I do have big head, though. Otherwise, sound quality is on par with other O electronics, and the fit is true Oakley. These glasses set the standard, and they are a must have.

I really like the Thump2! The design might be a a little bit to simple and fashion oriented for a lot of people, but it's still a very unique and bold design.
The comfort in which you can walk around without cables tangling and earpieces falling out is just perfect. It's very comfortable to wear and the earbooms are very well adjustable.
The sound is very good, didn't expect it to perform so well!

All and all it is a very nice product for those who tend to spend a lot of money on gadgets like these! I sure do!

Frame: Brown Smoke 256Mb
Lens: Bronze

Got a gift certificate for Christmas, so I used it to chip away at the price of this pair. I had the original Thump and used that for a while, but this one does fit much nicer. The Gascan style usually doesn't fit me all that well, but the addition of a small strip of unobtainium does help.

The ear stems have 3 joints which allow for precise placement as well as angle so you can channel the music into your ears without actually sticking them into them. This way they stay nice and clean, and you don't end up ruining your hearing over it. It's also more comfortable and allows for some ambient noise to come in, which for safety's sake, is a good thing.

The sounds is as clear as the original, and the interface is exactly the same, so no learning curve here. I wish the Brown Smoke came in a higher memory option, but it will do until I get the Pro with 1 Gb.

yes the first zero rating. 60 days after recieving the glasses i started having problems. the play button stuck and played until the battery died. i sent them in and a 'flex circuit' and batter was replaced. not a week later the play button stuck again. i sent them in for the second time and 4 WEEKS! later electronics dept called saying i need a 'flex circuit' replaced b/c they found water damage. i use them when i exercise. and exercising causes excessive sweating which is not covered under warranty. so i pretty much flushed $335 down the drain.

I have both Thumbs and both are nice sunglasses with good and negative points.

The Thump two has

- not-enough-curved stems (with unobtainium), the earphones provide the music AND the fit
- I wonder why the stems do not "click" like the gascan (and Oil Drum f.e.) ones, they're very loose
- no unobtanium for the nose


+ changeable lenses
+ good earphones, better sound than T1 and it's easier to fit them into the ear



I prefer the Thump 2 at the moment, but I expect a very nice
Thump Pro... half framed, with changeable lenses and nice earphones. Maybe they add some unob this time, but if it's really the Bottlecap frame it may also fit nice without unob!

What a big improvement versus the Thump 1.0. The earboom is much much more flexable and comfortable. Instead of just the Telescopic and swivel action, the Thump 2.0's earboom has all the flexability that will adapt to any face. I am really impressed about the earboom and the tickness of the earstem. I am still not satisfied with the bass action of the sound system. I still give it a 5 because I am just trully amazed at the earboom action
Oak -
Not bad for a followup to the original Thump. Sound quality is great and the unobtainium on the earpieces make it fit better (thereby enhancing sound) than the original Thump. I would've liked bigger and more spaced out buttons, though. The fact that there are replacement lenses for it make it a more attractive model. It feels sturdier than the original Thump, which is a big plus.

Frame: jet black red icon 512MB pascha edition
Lens: black iridum & yellow PACHA logo's

this thump is a limited edition pascha model. there's 512 Mb music already on it, mixed by the DJ who's the king of the pascha. The sound is extra-ordinary, it could use more bass, but with the limited speaker capacity it is an overall good sound.
usability is great, left for volume, right for track choices etc.
the red icon gives it an agressive look, fit is good, not excellent. i wish it would be more oval wrapped. All in all, an improvement over Thump one, especially with the yellow lenses for dark light use

Well, what can you say about these glasses! They are very comfortable, and actually look suprisingly good (although I do recommend trying them on first). The sould quality is very good, and battery life is perfect for its use. It fits really securely on your head, with the earbuds in place, and I have had no hesitations using it for sport. Definitely worth purchasing, and you will use it far more than you imagine!

Since the release of the Original Thump I wanted a pair, but the price was always a restriction. Being an owner of a few iPod's also slowed me down. But eventually i broke down and picked up a pair.
The Thump 2 being based on the Gascan was perfect giving them a harder edge, the booms are really adjustable making for a really good fit. Sound quality is awesome though I would like a little more bass (Personal preference) The ease of use is helpful and with awesome comfort you can't go wrong. I'd highly recommend these for walking most of all, perfect little partner with no headphone leads getting in the way.

I was looking for a decent mp3 player when i came across these beautys, and to say i am still impressed, is an understatement.
there is only 1 problem with them, when i wear mine it.. feels like i have lost my guide dog when i wear them out.
but saying that, i still want to get other colours as i love them so much.
trust me if you need a new mp3 player then get these..
no wires to get caught up in zips or wrapped around door handles that could ruin ya mp3 player or wires.and you will think why didnt i get these sooner.
A must buy if you are on the look out for a new mp3 and pair of sunglasses.!
the sound is great and getting music on them is so easy a baby could do it.!!

Lens: Black Iridium + Yellow (w/ Pacha logo etched)

--------

Power on : "THUMP thump!"

Yep, finally... finally I decided to bought a Thump 2.
I've had the opportunity to buy the limited edition (500 ex supposed to be made) Thump 2 Pacha. Pacha is a nightclub group. The Pacha edition is preloaded with a mix from Wally Lopez, one of the DJ playing at Pacha Ibiza's nightclub.
Well, I don't really care about this and replaced immediately the music with one of my choice (At now, this is Apocalyptica).
The Pacha edition is not only noticeable by the music preloaded. There's also some nice additions : Red icons, cherries (Pacha's logo) etched on the lens, and a pair of Yellow replacement lens (with the cherries etched on lens too).

Back to the e-sunglasses themselves :
Being known that the GasCan are not really my cup of tea, it's strange that I really like the look of the Thump 2, but I do.
The coverage is not the best one in the whole Oakley line, but is still correct.
Despite the fact that the stems are a bit short for my big head, the 3 flexion point speaker's "arms" are long enough to be very well placed in my ears, so no problem with this. The bad side is that once they are in place, I can't pull the glasses a bit to get a better ventilation, so my brows touch the frame and some fog appear quite quickly if I use them for sport are simply rapid walk.
With respect to the speakers themselves, they have a great sound quality for semi internal ones. They are lacking a bit of bass, but that's a global defect for that type of speakers.
The music control is really easy and once you get used with the different commands, it's just natural and you don't need to think about which button you have to push to get the good action, you just do it.
512 Mo will allow you to bring a few hours of music in your sunglasses (still find it to be unbelievable) and you should not be annoyed with battery life as far as you keep your USB cable with you ; That's what I do so I'm never cut by battery power. I've still not been able to estimate how long you can play music without charging the battery, but sure long enough for my daily home-work-home way walking so that's what I wanted them to do and after a week of use, I still don't see the red light on the battery indicator.

Power off "THUMP thump !" ... (try a pair and you'll see what I mean ^_^)

I've had my thump 2 for more than three years now and they still turn heads and stares whenever I wear them. It was a quite expensive though since you could buy an Apple Shuffle and a Frogskin for the same price but it is such a unique piece that i couldnt resist to have one. Its Gascan frame is also made for smaller heads (my head seems to be big) so I just wear them for short periods only. just recently the volume in one of the stems just conked out. When I went to the Authorized Oakley service center to have it repaired, I was informed that the Thump 2 was already phased out and that it could not be repaired anymore. i could still use it though, i just could not make the music louder or softer though. Over all it still is a cool piece for a collector.

these are great you can change the lenses they are small and sleek. if you could hide the ear booms you would never know that it had a mp3 player built in. i fly a lot and i can put them on and never have to worry about wires. you can change the lenses out depending on the time of day on the plane or on the ground for that matter and they still look good. the batterys last for the long flights. the only thing is that you can not see the song title like trditional mp3 players. i know that is because it is because of design constraints but if they could come up with some thing that would be cool.

the unobtainium on the nose peices the ear stems are great i has a very secure fit better then the other thumps.

Hey Guys,
Just wanted to thank you all for your great posts and your passion for Oakley and especially your passion for the electronics category. I just wanted to let you all know that your comments don't go unnoticed. Keep the posts coming. I use them to help develop the next ones.

Now, for a few great tips and some things to note that most miss:

1. OVERDRIVE: Did you know that you can instantly call up your favorite song when you need that extra boost of energy? It will instantly jump your favorite song, play it once, and then go right back to where you were in your playlist. Read the Overdrive section in the manual for how to set it up and use it.

2. Shuffle Mode: Did you notice that the shuffle mode is a randomized ordered playlist? You can move forward and back within it. Also when you go to exit shuffle mode, it returns to the song you were listening to when you put it into shuffle mode. Oh and #1 (abov) also works. Love attention to details.

3. Playlists: YOU CAN CREATE PLAYLISTS!!! Just create different folders on the TPro and organize your music into them. Then to navigate your playlists, when it's on, just "pause" the device. Now the volume buttons jump between folders.

Now for a few hidden features (only I knew these, until now):

1. Song Repeat: Press and hold the FF and the Vol + Buttons at the same time. 1x = 1 Song, 2x = All Songs, 3x = Turn Repeat Off.

2. Playlist Repeat: Press and hold the RR and Vol - Buttons at the same time. 1x = Repeat all songs in current folder, 2x = Turn Repeat Off.

(I always add hidden features so look for them. There are more, but those were the easy ones.)

I received mine as a Christmas gift. They worked great although the fit was a little off, the speakers were stiff and made the glasses initially sit crooked. Took some time but that work itself out as the ear pieces loosened up. Everything was going good until the right speaker developed a rattle when the "hearbeat" played upon power up or down. Music sounded ok so I am guessing it has to do with low bass tones. My wife purchased them online @ Oakley and I now have to fork out an extra $25 to get them fixed (not replaced). I only used them 4 times. I love the glasses but I am frustrated with Oakley's customer service (or lack of it). Becareful if you buy them online. I suggest a local retailer where you can return them if you experience any problems.

Also - cleaning them. I asked Amy @ Oakley's technical support and she said use soap and water to remove any sweat.??? As I recall water and electronics do not mix so I am not sure what is the best procedure. I can see it now, I clean them as directed and if I need a repair, they claim water damage and deny warranty service! Any advice would be appreciated.

I am currently emailing Oakley about my situation but I am not sure if it will do any good. Anyone have a name of someone @ Oakley in customer service who I can write too?

The fit and the sound are awesome. I love these really and have used them a lot and find that they fit very securely in all situations including working out in them. The one small problem I have is that I don't find the lens coverage in the bottom to be very great. Although this is easily fixable by throwing in a pair of HJ XLJ lenses. It would be killer to see a Thump Array done sometime with some other lens options for different conditions.

Thump I had no real major qualms with. Thump 2 the only problem was it fit like a Gascan, which doesn't fit me, but it was still a solid product. On Thump Pro, and I hate to go against the higher rated reviews, but I just don't see a solid product.

Keep in mind I am not talking about the sound quality, or the amount of songs it can hold. I am talking about the shell, the physical product itself. I go to try them on, open the stems and the wire cover that runs the inside of the frame gives a pop. And does eveytime I open and close them.

I try the range on the booms and I can see the plastic separating near its seems if you move a piece even slightly too far. And the lack of a ball joint at the top most connection to the frame on the main arm really limits it's true range.

Even the stems themselves feel very weak and hollow. Just testing the flex of the frame for larger heads a lens popped out. There I noticed it's actually held in by a tiny hooked edge.

Based on these few issues I have to go low here. I am not saying it doesn;t look good, or sound good, but I just don't see this being the best they can offer.

It was about time that Oakley makes an electronic eyewear that is less excentric so that people who always wear black/black whiskers could start considering. This one fits much more different faces. I'm also glad they made it almost waterproof (almost being important in this sentence), I actualy worn them under big BIG rain, and they never stopped playing. Plus, this is the first electronic that is really 100% sports oriented, with the REAL 3 point fit and Unobtanium® (not only on earstems).

Cons:
- non replacable Unobtanium® on the earstems
- They where talking about spacing the buttons so that it would be easier to use... not spaced enough!

Suggestion: There should be, on the right side, only two buttons on top (fwd and rwd) and the play button should be under the same branch... think about it, when you want to push a button, you need to put your thumb under the branch to be able to press the ones on top anyway!

First of all, the Thump Pro wears a lot more comfortable than Thump 2. It has a better fit, which convinces me it's suitable for running. They say it's watterproof; I believe them, since I haven't tried it in the rain or taking a shower.
Musical quality is superb. The speaker-things perfectly adjustable to the ear. Seems to be easier than Thump 2.
One minor remark: it should be available with XL lenses, like Half Jacket, because I seem to have a litle light leakage from underneath the bottom of the lens. No major problem running, but could be a problem on the slopes.

This is a good frame for medium heads, but a poor successor to the A Wire series. If I could rate it on fit and feel only, I'd give it 5 stars, but the styling is bland, and I feel that the A wire 2.0 was left behind for the sake of selling something different, and not for a product improvement. The wide, flat earsocks are comfortable and hold the frame securely, and the lack of spring hinges mean you can tweak the frame to fit your face and fit straight every time. This is an advantage non-springed frames have that is often overlooked, so I'm happy Oakley is releasing new models with this design.

Frame: Light
Lens: Grey Transition with hardcoating RX lenses

I hate wearing specs, mainly due to the frames being so flat making everything I look at be in a 'frame', as well as marginal distortion when moving my head.

Originally I bought a set of oakleys with RX system lenses as a pair of driving sunglasses, but the lenses were so good I bought a set of Tightropes with grey transitions which I now wear every day. The clarity is amazing, there is no distortion from head movement, and the frame hold your head in all the right places. Simply the fact that I get better vision through a pair of sunglasses than I do from my 'proper' specs says it all really.

Can anyone compare them with whisker please? How is the frame compared? Does anyone have perhaps both an can tell if they are equal or smaller? I habe 2 pairs of whiskers and for me they are perfect. But I like the ice iridium polarized one.

Frame: Pewter
Lens: Black Iridium Polarized

I went into a Sunglass Hut and tried on a bunch of Oakley shades, and these fit best and were most comfortable. They are very similar to the Whisker, except the lenses extend lower and are more rounded so they look a little less aggressive. I noticed that most Oakley sunglasses sit too high for me. The arms are also a little thicker than the Whisker's. If you're looking for high performance Oakley shades but don't want to look like you're in an action movie, these are among the best.

These are similar to the Whisker only slightly smaller (overall) and more rounded lenses with a slightly wider bridge. They fit my fat head a bit tighter than the Whisker and are noticeably heavier.

Frame: Titanium
Face: Carbon Fiber
This is the crowning Jewel of the Oakley product line. At a grand and a half, this pushes briefly into Rolex territory, except Rolex watches are expensive because they throw diamonds on them, Oakley instead decided to invest the money in technology. First off, this watch requires no battery; everything is driven off their 'O Engine'. This is an arc found within the watch (which you can view through a glass window) that is weighted on one side, so as you move your wrist during day to day activity, the weight ends up rotating around an axis, which charges the battery stored within. When I first got the watch, I had to swing it back and forth for a short while to get an initial charge. I had a few problems with the watch dying on me if I left it alone for a while, but that has since never been a problem now that the charge level is maxed. The entire casing is made of Titanium, so nothing's going to damage this watch in the near future. The crystal over the face seems to hold up pretty well too. After all the abuse it goes through, there's only a few minor scratches if you look hard enough, nothing that impedes the viewing of the time. The Titanium frame tends to get a little scuffed up though. I get a lot of compliments on this watch. more so than any of the glasses. All the old-timers that see this think it's self-winding, but it's really just self-recharging. I'd recommend this watch if you can get past the price tag.

Yep, it's gonna be hard to beat this, I bought the Cannon Red one, after debating whether or not to spend £1200 on a watch. But, as you can see by my inventory, I got bitten by the bug. This was a while before eBay came along too, and when the exchange rate was a lot lower!! I've always had positive comments about it, and they first came out in 98 with the Kevlar O Shoe, so this goes to show how well the design has (or hasn't) aged.

I'd like to see a reinvented Time bomb, with automatic date skipping (for shorter months) and automatic time sync (to return to the correct time after stopping when not in use for a few days) I'm sure Oakley can do it if Seiko et al can do it.

And a Carbon bracelet would be sweet!

This Oakley's watch is a good watch but there's a few flaws which caused it to lose 2 points.
1. Price tag is pretty steep for a watch with just auto-recharge funtion. I currently own a Seiko watch and it offers the chronograph function, self recharging battery(with a battery that can hold a 6 month charge), titanium body and sapphire crystal face, all for a little less than the price of time bomb.
2. The watch's face seems to get scratched much easier than the sapphire crystal faces.
And don't bash Rolex, they arn't expensive because they throw in diamonds(even the sports Rolex watches cost more than $8,000, and they have no diamonds at all) and in no way is the Time Bomb near Rolex territory. It is however near Omega territory.

I've always wanted one of these, and still plan on getting one before I die. ust at $2500 CAD, it's quite a price stretch from the $430 for the Crush 2.0 that I have. Someday...
They are amazing watches and deserve more credit than they get.

I love this watch it looks great I have worn it every day for about 6 months straight and only have minor scuffs on the band from slappping it on the desk. I have heard people say that the crystal is prone to scratches because it is not sapphire but so far i have had no scratches and i have slammed the crystal a couple of times against things

Band: Titanium (X-Metal color)
Face: Carbon Fiber

Pro: The most unique and beautiful watch ever conceived.
Con: Only fits large wrists. Makes an audible "zip" when winding.

First off, I'll admit that I don't wear this watch. I can't. I tried taking out every link on the band and it's still way too big. It's obvious that the design is intended for those with much thicker wrists than skinny little Asian guys like me.

For a titanium and carbon fiber watch, it's surprisingly hefty. I have a titanium and carbon fiber TAG Heuer and it's noticeably lighter, but it's also battery operated. My stainless Rolex Submariner (perpetual), on the other hand, is probably about 3 times heavier than the Time Bomb so it's all relative.

More surprising than the weight is the sound of the mechanics inside. As mentioned, you can see inside the back casing as the counter weight rotates on its axis to charge up the internal battery (capacitor?). When it swings, you can hear a faint, but audible 'zip' as it moves. I'm not sure how this would play out if I were able to wear this watch, but I'd imagine that it would eventually drive me batty.

I can't call this a perfect watch. Stylistically, it's the most beautiful watch I've set my eyes on. Technologically, it's equally as innovative as it is beautiful. The watch obviously wasn't intended for someone of my stature so no deductions there. But the 'zippy zipping' is a little annoying.

Despite never being able to wear this watch, I still can't bring myself to part with it. Eventually, it'll end up in some kind of display cabinet as this design will go down in history as a museum piece a la Movado.

It took me a while to decide, and after a lot of thought I decided to take a deal which would see me get this amazing watch. It's a beautiful watch! Well built, pleasing to the eye and oozes class.

Awesome watch, could not resist the $399 price tag.
The GMT has always been the daily work wear, And I love the GMT.
Never thought I would want to wear another watch. but this is just a fabulous timepiece, requires the wearer to take more care due to scuffing and scratching the crystal. (Very difficult after wearing the GMT)
Concerns about the charging noise were quickly dismissed.
Keeps running beyond 4 days without wear.
Never seen anyone else wearing one.

Casing: X-Metal
Dial: Emerald

As most of us are already aware, this watch needs no batteries since it runs off of kinetic energy. Of the set, this is one of my favorites as the emerald shines and shimmers in the light. If you can afford to pick one up, it's well worth the price.
TERRORISM -
Casing: Polished
Dial: Blue

Another beautiful timepiece in the Time Bomb set. The shimmering blue hues of the dial are reminiscent of the shimmering emerald hues of its Emerald Time Bomb counterpart. The polished casing also gives this watch a distinguished look. I've had more compliments on this particular Time Bomb than any other (perhaps coincidentally, perhaps due to the overal aura of this piece). The only drawback is that the polished casing is very sensitive, and you must take great caution to avoid even the slightest abrasion to the casing or band.
TERRORISM -
Casing: Polished
Dial: Titanium

This particular color combination seems to be more limited than most, and it is, in my opinion, one of the better. As always, the caveat stands when wearing the polished band: do everything possible to avoid even the slightest scratch on this beautiful timepiece!
TERRORISM -
Casing: X-Metal
Dial: Cannon Yellow

This color combo closely resembles the X-Metal/Cannon Red version, but with one important distinction: second (or minute, as you may prefer) markers around the circumference of the dial. This greatly enhances the overal visual appeal of the watch, and only two Time Bombs boast this additional aesthetic characteristic.
TERRORISM -
Casing: X-Metal
Dial: Titanium

Another "neutral" color combo for the Time Bomb. The dial has a clean look, and this watch can be worn - like the X-Metal/Carbon Fiber - with virtually anything.
TERRORISM -
Casing: X-Metal
Dial: White

The dial on this TimeBomb almost appears to be a "silverish" color when viewed under certain light conditions. Although not the most attractive color of the Time Bomb lineup, a solid addition to any Oakley collection.
TERRORISM -
Casing: Ion Plated Stainless
Dial: Cannon Yellow

Although the Ion Plated Stainless casing is not as expensive as the X-Metal casing, it doesn't discount the beauty of this watch. The shining "black" hue of the casing looks incredible coupled with the Cannon Yellow dial. Despite the fact that I have not yet had an opportunity to wear this one, I'm sure that it'll scratch easily due to the polished finish.

I absolutely love my Time Bomb. It's my crowning jewel in my Oakley collection. It's very classy looking but unmistakably Oakley... they styling is unique and not everyone will have anything like it. The white face is absolutely beautiful... it's not a flat white finish but is irridescent, especially in the sunlight, and the chrome bezel ring and ticks add a brilliant touch. the O Engine window on the back is also very cool. the only thing i can think of that i would add is a sweeping second hand. other than that, it's my ultimate Oakley possession.

The Time Bomb is pretty much the only Oakley item I have received continuous praise or admiration from G.Q. Public. Some scratches on the crystal and scuffing on the band is expected from regular wear. The O Engine window in the back is cool and I could never tire of the design.

When I first saw that this colorway was being offered I battled with myself on whether to get one or not. The reason was because I just loved it, but since I already had one I wasn't sure if I should get another before getting say a Judge or Detonantor. But this version of the Time Bomb is very classy and it really says "stealth" because of the fluid-styling and the colorway. All and all this watch makes a very futuristic statement and is truly a work of art. The battle is over and I've been beaten and victorious all at the same time.

Got a great deal on a titanium/white face Timebomb on Ebay. Came with the metal vault. This watch is what Oakley needs to look at some 7 years later, as to what the standard of the company should be.Form and function combined, not just fashion.(riddle, etc.) Bong was exactly correct, the white face is iridescent and very cool.

If you can afford one and are into Oakley, the Timebomb is a must have!

What can I say, this watch is beautiful. Got it for a good price on eBay. When I first got it I was a little nervous because it didn't seem like it was working right, but all it needed was a charge. My only complaint is that the crystal scratches easily, but I sent it back for a replacement and they polished it for free, so sending it back isn't all bad. It gets a lot of compliments and I really like the self charging and the fact that you hardly ever see someone else wearing it.

I love my timebomb! I own a blade, crush, detonator, gmt, and a white timebomb as well but i just got a new emerald green timebomb that also happens to be polished... that makes it 1 of 2 ever made!! I hope to eventually sell off my other watches and get a collection of all timebombs.. the ones id like to have are red, blue, stealth black, and carbon fiber... that would be so sweet. Anyways its a great watch especially if you can get it cheap off of ebay, but watch out they might be trying to rip you off by selling an employee edition (one that comes in a plastic box, not metal vault, and it doesnt have the oakley O on the buckle of the watch). The employees at oakley can get these employee edition watches fro $150 at christmas and turn around and sell them on ebay for $500 so watch out.

Worth $1500? No. Worth around $500? Definitely a bargain in that respect. If you can find one reasonably priced on closeout and have a little extra cash, jump on it. You won't be sorry. Very beautiful watch, but seemingly impossible to photograph. These watches ALWAYS look better in person. Only complaint is the stealth can't be polished, so, it will retain scratches.

i already have the Titanium/White Time Bomb but i couldn't resist buying this Stealth Black when i had the opportunity. if the Ti-White was about class and sophistication, the Stealth Black is at the opposite of the spectrum... totally bad*ss! it looks brilliant in polished black Stainless Steel finish, and the red accents on the second hand and the date readout takes it to the next level. of course, it contains all the same Time Bomb goodness like Oakley's classic fluid styling and the "O-Engine" eliminating any need for batteries. however, because the Stealth Black is made in Stainless Steel as opposed to Titanium, it is heavier but i like the weight on my wrist. another crowning jewel to my Oakley collection!

This is by far my biggest purchace of Oakley. It gets noticed all the time. One gentleman asked me if the watch comes with the glasses, I told him that the glasses should come with the watch. I only wear on special occasions or if out with my friends for a night on the town. I have owned it for over 4 years and it still runs perfect. The band scuffs easily, but can also be easily replaced.

The price of the Time Bombs has been dropping dramatically on Ebay as of late and I just couldn't resist picking this one up. It is difficult to stop staring at it. To me, this is the top of line Oakley watch. The noise caused by the internal winding mechanism caused me concern at first. It seemed a bit loud, but that's just the way they sound. I would highly recommend you buy one now while the price is right!

This is it. This is the one thing I think pretty much all of us aspire to own. I'll never forget when I was still at SGH and the Oakley rep at the time (Larry Larson, who was a great guy) came in to check on his Scheel's account and he had this on. Seeing it up close and personal is the only way to do it justice. This is how Oakley takes something as traditional as a wristwatch and shatters the way you think about them. If you don't like this watch, I reserve the right to call into question not only your masculinity, but also your ancestory.

A great colour combination for the TB. Had my original replaced by Oakley UK. The cost of replacing the damaged parts out weighed the cost of replacing the complete watch.

This is a stunning version of the TB variations. Very similar to the bullet yellow face, The dots on the face are bigger with the date at th 6 o'clock position.

Another stunning colour combination for the TB. The cannon red stands out superbly. The dots on the face are set at a different angle to the Cannon yellow version.

Frame: Titanium

I was in an O Store the other day, saw a brand new Timebomb standing proudly in a display case and was absolutely mesmerised; I did own one already, but it just reminded me of how mine looked when I first had it in my grubby little hands. Call me crazy, but I bought mine with the full-on intention of knocking it about (I got it second-hand, so I didn't feel too bad about it). It has held up pretty well despite the number of scratches on the band and some gouging on the crystal.

The Time Bomb does not have a lot of extras going for it, and is simple as simple can be. It employs a HardEx crystal instead of sapphire, while being quite strong is not scratchproof (this is because sapphire cannot angle the light onto the face as well at that curvature, apparently). The Time Bomb also does not have smooth hand motion, and does not have automatic date skipping (you will have to manually change the date to incorporate shorter months). Functionally, the most useful aspect of the Time Bomb is the O-Engine; a fancy name for the kinetic engine which charges the battery as the watch is swung on your wrist.

However, visually, the Time Bomb is unmatched and is the selling point for most. The design flows so well, so fluidly, and is an incarnation of the sculptural physics that Oakley boasts and achieves so well. In fact, it looks more like an industrial machine than something that simply tells you the time. There is even a small window on the back of the watch that most people won't even see (unless you show them!). This is where you can see the O-Engine grind gears into motion, and such attention to detail is undoubtedly a nice touch.

Pictures simply do not do; I seriously believe that the design can only be appreciated in person.

One thing that should be kept in mind is the size of the watch; some have mentioned that it is quite large due to the small angle at which the band can curve, but unless you have very thin wrists, it shouldn't be a problem to wear. For example, I have wrists which are roughly 16cm around but the Time Bomb accommodates nicely; the rubber unobtainium pads help massively in this regard. Also, though it is hefty, it is not heavy, thanks to light-weight Titanium. Finally, there is a barely audible buzz when the gears charge the capacitor; not really an issue in the real world environment.

The Time Bomb is now discontinued. If you do come across a Time Bomb, be sure to try it out; it's one of a kind.

Color: Stealth Stainless Steel

I guess I can't really give a detailed review on this watch as I got mine for dirt cheap and I guess it's okay. One has to understand that I'm a true mechanical watch fan and kinetic quartz watches are kind of "meh" for me usually.

However, it is nice to have a pretty solid watch to wear around for general use. My HUGE beef against it is the fact that a 1300 dollar watch does not have a sapphire crystal face---the price more than justifies the upgrade. What gives?

Occasionally the staying pins like to move in and out. Something one will have to get used to. That as well as the main lug pins will widen if not attended to monthly.

Color: Black Stainless Steel (Stealth)

I love this watch. I always wanted a Seiko kinetic watch but never could afford it when I was in H.S.. So when I found out about this watch from Oakley I had to get it. I love the new battery concept. Not only the function but the look of it is sweet too. The black stainless steel looks real sleek. Unlike others, I think you can get away with wearing this at formal occasions.
FREEMIX -
The reason the timebomb does not have a sapphire crystal face is because when they designed the watch they wanted it all to flow and because sapphire is so hard they were unable to form it in the shape that they desired. This is why they use a scratch resistant mineral glass. The mineral glass is easier to work with to achieve such curves.

This is an Oakley masterpiece. Great looks and the 'O Engine' technology. I actually sent back my Blade for a refund to purchase this one. The only negative comments are the frame and band color are more of a dull silver as opposed to a flat black image Oakley graphics display, and the date is hard to view in red. Still overall I'm impressed, and so is everyone else that admires it.

Well the TIMEBOMB is just one of those things I just had to have in life. Being the Original Oakley watch, it just screams classic Oakley style. I find the weight very balanced and the size comfortable. I can't really fault it in any way. The color is a personal choice and many have been offered.
Since they are now out of production there are very few left and seem to be going for reasonable prices on ebay well below original retail. Get one while you can.

This is a classy looking watch. It looks unique and is not too flashy. I have yet to see someone besides myself wearing one. Many people often ask what kind of watch it is.

The coolest part of this timebomb is the back of the face were a small glass window shows the inner parts and engineering of the watch.

Quite hard to find nowadays, but well worth it if you can get one. Judging by the dwindling numbers of TB's available on eBay compared to this time last year, they are all soon to be obselete.

I would highly recommend a Cannon Red TB to anyone who is looking to add a TB to their Oakley collection.

Frame: Polished

Antoher difficult TB combo to find nowadays, but well worth teh effort if you can track one down. I was slightly disappointed in the polished bracelet treatment. It seems quite thin and plastic-like. I was expecting something with a deeper finish. Compared to other watches in this price range with polished-style bands, I'm afraid the TB disappoints. Apart from this personal observation, it is a great watch oozing style and sophistication. I have experienced a bit of frustration trying to get this particular watch to hold a charge though. I have wound it and wound it but it never seems to hold a charge. I might have to have Oakley take a look at this one. Obviously, this kind of thing is not indicative of this particular color combination so I won't reflect this problem in the ranking, but she does lose one point for a substandard polished finish on the band.

Case/Band: Ion Plated Stainless Steel
Face: Black

Could this be the crown jewel of my Oakley collection? Perhaps yes. Time Bomb embodies much of what I would consider "traditional" Oakley design: bold, unique, stylish, and high-tech. The look and feel of this watch is something that the newer models just can't match in my opinion.

Case/band - The shiny finish is essentially black chrome. It stands out more than the satin Titanium color, but is slightly more understated than Polished due to the darker finish. However, fingerprints, smudges, and water spots show up very easily. I still can't get over how Oakley decided to shape the case the way they did with the long chassis and "fins". It is such a refreshing departure from the usual round or square cases, although it does make it harder for smaller-wristed folks to get the right fit. The Unobtainium patches on the back side do help keep it in place, though. The relatively thick clasp is much friendlier on your skin compared to some of the sharp-edged, stamped clasps on lower-end watches.

Face - No nonsense here. Matte black in color with chrome markings and icon. Dare I say elegant? The red date display can be a bit low-contrast, but the little splash of color adds just the right accent and goes well with the red second hand without being too intrusive.

Make no mistake, this is a heavy watch, especially compared to the titanium version. I also have an Icon, and the weight difference is dramatic. It's a good kind of heavy, though, definitely a solid, well-built feeling. I'd highly recommend getting one of these before they completely sell out, especially at the prices these are going for now. Hopefully Oakley will revisit this kind of design theme in the future.

Casting: Titanium
Face: Cannon Red

I am loving every second of this watch! The Cannon Red Face is simply stunning alone and even better next to the Titanium Frame. One of the best watches both visually and mechanically. Based on the pics I felt the black dots on the red face destroyed the beauty on the watch however, when I saw this thing in person that theory was destroyed. It looked amazing. I never had a problem with the O engine system. The watch would stop working if left for days but would be easy to restart and never stopped while in use.. I have treated my watch carefully and with almost regular wear I have not scratched the surface, although careless wear would obviously cause scratches which would be distinct on this watch, given the titanium and the non-crystal face, thereby decreasing its visual affect. Otherwise this watch is simply the best. It I could give it more than 5 Skulls, I would.

Face: titanium, white

I managed to snag both of these from the same local seller, new in metal vaults! I wear the white face daily and keep the titanium mint in box.

These are amazing. Powered by Seiko's kinetic drive, they last for virtually 15-20years without a hitch, before the capacitor needs replacing. The upgraded capacitor (Maxwell TC920S) is a Lithium titanium oxide cell with a Carbon Electrolyte... And this will last a LOT longer.

Downfalls are the ease of scuffing the Xmetal casing/band.. And the crystal not being sapphire. But it really doesnt bother unless you REALLY abuse your watches.

Styling is awesome. Much cleaner and more fluid than the tb2. These to me are the epitome of Oakley design watches. Get one if you can...
HED4JC -
Bought one used one back in the day. Although it does not get used very often, the watch comes alive after a few wiggles because it is automatic. Aside from the "x-metal" titanium finish, having the carbon fiber face is a very good complement for this watch. The only problem is that it has a glass face which is very prone to scratching and cracking. That is one of the main reasons I rarely wear this watch.

The Time Bomb box stayed in the similar fashion of the eyewear boxes at the time. It was just big enough to fit the vault found inside.

I really like these boxes that Oakley did for their products. Its very artistically done and the black and white just add to the class.
TERRORISM -
Similar to the boxes for their eyewear during this time period, the Time Bomb box illustrates the product in a "black-and-white" fashion, along with the name of the watch on the adjacent sides. Somewhat simple in design, yet elegant enough to house the casing and motorized instrument which it markets.

I love this box. Not only because it hold my favorite watch, but also because of the overall design and the way the watch is displayed on it. It reminds me of the older black and white boxes that glasses used to come in, only kicked up a notch for the Time Bomb (and some Icons). 5 skulls without a doubt.
TERRORISM -

After much waiting and anticipation, the Elite Time Bomb II has finally detonated. Speculation and rumors swarmed since word was released that Oakley planned on re-releasing its iconic timepiece, but was the wait worth it?

Oakley went all-out for the presentation. The black, cubicle box that stores this watch uses a special clasp mechanism to remain closed and also incorporates metal hinges to prevent the lid from opening too far. Adorned with the Oakley Elite symbol and lined with black felt, the box displays the watch on the left side while displaying a metal plaque for the Time Bomb II on the right. Underneath the black felt insert lies the instruction manual as well as a blu-ray disc (sound quality is horrendous on the disc).

The aesthetics of the watch are breathtaking, closely resembling the design of the original Time Bomb, but with an updated look which almost seems reminiscent of the Lamborghini Reventon. Plates forged from pure titanium adorn a red unobtainium underlay, and the face/bezel are milled from true carbon fiber. Slightly larger and heavier than its predecessor, the timepiece is probably best suited for those with medium/larger wrists.

The only real points of concern are the seeming lack of accuracy of the watch (+/- 12 seconds per day) as well as the necessity to physically cut the band (unobtainium underlay) to size. Unfortunately, the need to cut the band greatly diminishes the design element IMO, and Oakley needs to address this concern for future releases. Nonetheless, credit needs to be given where it's due: the overall presentation, materials, and watch itself are nothing short of amazing.
DarkJuliet -
Gotta try and be objective with this one.

I took a passing glance at the Time Bomb II in the flesh today and that old feeling came back for a split second: the feeling I used to associate with Oakley back in the nascent days of X-Metal and Mad Science. It was a good feeling.

When I look at Time Bomb II I'm reminded of the things that made Oakley great: boldness, originality, and a distinctiveness that that was at it's peak at the beginning of the new century. The Time Bomb II recaptured that.

It's an obvious reflection of the original Time Bomb, but wilder. Too bad that its larger dimension preclude those with smaller wrists from wearing it without looking ridiculous. The red unobtanium strap core is something that I rather like on the new Time Bomb...it's a little crazy and wildly impractical: a very old Oakley touch.

Having had experience with mechanical watches people should be aware that the maintenance of this watch demands a cleaning once every 3 years. In truth, Oakley's having opted to use a mechanical ETA-2824 movement is, in my opinion, an attempt to horn in on the luxury watch sector even more without adding too much in way of function. As much as I like mechanical watches, this addition doesn't really convince me of justification of the inflated price.

Still, I like this watch. I like it because it's quite striking and unique, but I mostly like it because it reminds of me of better times.

Well, overall this is a pretty awesome thing to behold. The rubber underlay means the watch keeps a fairly rigid round shape when you're not wearing which looks cool and the carbon fibre on the face really glistens in the light. The carbon fibre bezel feels amazingly smooth to touch - definately a well finished product. Another nice touch is the viewing window on the back (much larger than the previous timebomb) which is slightly curved to fit the wrist.

Elsewhere the sweeping second hand is hypnotic! And the way the links articulate when you twist the strap is fricken brilliant! (However see below for slight issue with this).

On a practical front, yes it is pretty enormous so not for skinny wrists (that is, if you're actually planning on wearing it) but it's just such a cool thing to own and play around with that you might not want to risk it getting damaged by wearing it.

Personally I do wear mine, and I had to get the strap shortened quite a bit so it would fit on my wrist. And here is the big problem with the watch. I had to have four links removed and this does involve getting the rubber cut, which is a real shame. Removing four links also reduced significantly the extent to which the strap can twist, and this reduces the appeal slightly.

For reference, I get three links taken out of a blade, a normal time bomb, an icon, or a GMT (I'm presuming that if your thinking of getting a TBII you probably already own at least one of the above!). If you have any more than three links taken out of any of the above, then I would not recommend the Timebomb II. You would have to have more than 4 links taken out and this would really start to ruin the watch.

regarding design I like it wery much, but what is killing my nervs is accuracy, it goes forward 45-60 seconds per day! Few days ago I visited Oakely in Zurich and they told me that I should leave it and wait for 2 months for service! At back side under the window is visible little screw with marks above "+" and "-", what is I supose for adjustment of accuracy.

Livestrong Limited Edition Time Bomb II

Just a quick review on this piece:

Oakley did a great job with the presentation of this watch, completely changing the color of the box to match the Livestrong image (yellow, of course), incorporating the Livestrong logo on the front. The small metal plaque included also bears the Livestrong logo along with the serial number of the watch. The only small area for improvement would have been a "yellow" Oakley Elite "O" on the top of the box, surrounded by the "black circle" of the Elite logo.

Once again, my biggest concern about this watch is the fact that the band must be cut in order to size it, but overall this watch makes a fascinating display piece! Get one while they're still available.

I've worn this for a while now, and they're very comfortable. The platelet design of the bracelet really hugs my wrist, and the UnOb layer underneath certainly helps.
The mechanism is a quantum leap over the original TB. Watch starts with almost a single flick, and stays charged way longer than its predecessor.
My wrists are very small, but I still think it looks good. So, I disagree with a previous reviewer that extra links taken off are potentially or even necessarily fatal from an aesthetic point of view.
The TB was a worthy pioneer of a unique design. But the TB II is at least as worthy of a successor, keeping the original shape whilst taking function and comfort to newer echelons.

Could not afford this watch at full retail and had to wait 4 years for a decent priced used but in good condition watch to come around before I pulled the trigger. Make sure to go through the thread which shows you the difference between an authentic one versus a fake one as the fakes are extremely good replicas of the real thing. Having a matching presentation box always helps with the authenticity.

I couldn't belive my eyes when I first saw this. It's truely amazing, but I'd rather buy the non limited Time Bomb.

The pinnacle of all Oakley products: the 18K Gold Time Bomb. With identical styling to the Time Bomb family, this watch compels a second look since its composition is entirely gold. Someday this will be added to my collection as the crown jewel...

After more than 10 years, that dream has now become reality.

Absolutely Awesome watch, none come close to the unique elegant styling. How many were made & whats it worth today?

This case only supports the Time Bomb watch when it's brand new. Once you're wearing it, there's really no use for it, other than to look really cool next to your collection, which it does quite well.

A vault for your watch... what a concept! Like the other boxy vaults, this one is built like a tank, big and heavy with double-thick corners and rivets. The velvet-covered watch holder gently cradles your time machine, and the foam top liner ensures that the lid will not scratch the crystal when the case is closed up.

Unlike the eyewear vaults, this case does not have spring-loaded hinges to keep the lid open or closed. Instead, there is a single free-rotating hinge. This allows the lid to open up much wider (see the pic above), which ensures that you can insert/remove your watch without scratching it on the relatively sharp edges of the lid.

The graphics on the top of the lid are a cool representation of the O-engine that shows through the window on the back of the Timebomb/Icon. Very distinctive.

Hopefully Oakley will make a vault like this again for another high-end watch in the future.

Got the vault before I got a timebomb. Sturdy and superb.
Has the inertial generator, o-engine stamped on top.
Sits nicely next to all the other x metal boxes

Yep, no real use for it. And yet it is still thrown on ebay as a "rare" item in and of itself. I'm not thrilled about the felty inside ... but the case itself is freakin' awesome.

The Time-Bomb is already a sweet watch at $1500 .. and to get the watch protected by a case like this makes you feel that much better about your purchase. Great display item!

This is awesome! Just got it with my Time Bomb. It definitely adds to your excitement as you open it up to see your new watch. Definitely an Oakley product. All their watches should come with this.

This thing is awesome. I don't know if I would of been quick to pull the trigger on the time bomb if this case wasn't included. Its very sturdy and similar to the Vault cases.
warwagon -
awesome protection for the perfect watch. Very cool to have and looks good in the collection. The style is in the lines of the other Vaults and should be offered in other forms for the other watches in the Oakley range.
travee -
When I bought my timebomb it didn't come with the box and I had to buy it seperate off ebay. Im sure glad I did. This is the coolest case I have ever seen a watch come in. It is solid steel and is great protection. I think Oakley would make money just selling this box as seperate storage product for miscellaneous things. Awesome display item.
TheVault -
I love all my metal vaults, and this one is no exception, very bulky and heavy, everyone that sees it, wants to know what it is and whats inside, will protect your watch well.

All the other Oakley watched will fit in it, I use mine for my Blade watch.

Just wished they could have included a lock or a pin holding the bottom and the top.
Rick -
As cool as it appears, I get a little annoyed with this vault because you have to be careful when holding/opening it or the bottom will fall right out on you. You MUST grab it from the bottom 1/3. I've grabbed for it using the top 2/3 and it flopped open on me sending my watch crashing to the floor. It has happened a couple of times to me and I wasn't pleased. Plus, it is very difficult to keep the vault open while displaying the contents inside. I just think it was an ill-conceived design, but I do understand the attraction. I also don't go for the poofy padding, too Romanesque for my taste. Worth getting your hands on one, but not worth paying for.
Rick -
I am not a huge fan of this vault. It looks cool and all that, but I am not a fan of the 1/3 - 2/3 split between top and bottom. It becomes a tad top-heavy when open and it takes up a lot of room when opened. You have to be cautious when lifting it because, if you are like me, the tendency to grab the larger 2/3 top portion will result in the bottom falling out and your watch will pay the price. I find the satin stuffing a bit cheesey and way to big and bulky. I think a little more engineering should have gone into this case. I would definitely not recommend paying more than $25 for one. In fact, grab yourself a watch block display stand and a soft watch vault and you will be way better off.
TERRORISM -
Matching Oakley's reinforced, industrial-style, aluminum display cases, the TimeBomb Vault demands attention. The rivets and exclusive "Inertial Generator" coin embedded in the unit increase its visual appeal and add to its exclusivity. In my opinion, this is the ultimate display piece for any Oakley watch.
DoctorCrip -
I finally got one these with my second Icon watch and I couldn't be happier about it. This thing is so cool. My only problem with it, as others have pointed out, is it's top-heaviness. Nonetheless, only Oakley would come up with a case so remarkable that alone I've seen go for $100+ on eBay. I hope Dann doesn't mind if I bite his style and use it to propose my future wife just like he did. In the meantime, I think that I'll just use it to store whichever Icon I'm not wearing that day...and maybe my drugs...just kidding.

These are my favorite vaults that Oakley has made. I own quite a few of them and love them all. They are just beautiful to look at! A definite conversation starter.

cool vault but the top is too big and you have to be very careful picking it up because odds are it will open on you and your swiss made time piece will go crashing to the ground, but its a must for a timebomb
TERRORISM -
I have a few of these, and must say that although the "Bomb Box" could have been engineered slightly differently (as others have so eloquently pointed out), it still serves its purpose well. The case itself looks like a cube housing a detonation device and keeps your Bomb secure. What better way to display Oakley's premier timepiece?

Casing: Titanium
Face: Silver

The Time Tank is one of those watches that makes you do a double-take at first glance. Big, bulky, and aesthetically defined, this watch exemplifies Oakley's attribute of "art" encased in pure titanium with a sapphire crystal. Although I haven't yet worn it, I have heard that it garners attention and compliments like no other timepiece. The watch is also heavy-duty and carries considerable weight. The only mentionable drawback is that the physical size seems to be a bit much. Oakley may have considered designing a slightly smaller watch that would also appeal to those with smaller wrists.
Rick -
I've been waiting a while to do this review because I really wanted to give myself a chance to get to know this watch. It's been almost 3 months now and this watch and I have come to be very close. I have been nothing but impressed with this watch from the first day I bought. The packaging was superb and I felt as if I had bought the world's best watch just looking at the wooden box in came with. The feel is sturdy and strong. The bracelet is unique and funky. I have been stopped on the street by people who wanted to take a closer look. It is a great statement by Oakley and I love how it creates a reaction in everyone that sees it. When something comes along that stirs up reaction as strong as the TT, you know you got something special. Oh, it also tells the time, but that's not the point of this watch though is it? I'd give it 6 skulls if I could.

This is by far the best Oakley purchase I have made. The watch is Huge, heavy, rugged and very functional. It is water resistant to depths I will not even consider SCUBA diving to, so it will be fine for any water conditions that you can throw at it.
It has a chrono function that does come in handy when you are timing how long you have been sitting and admiring the watch's beauty.
This watch SCREAMS "OAKLEY"
I only have one suggestion for this watch, and that would be to have gas filled capsules that glow like a LUMINOX watch does. The TIME TANK's hands do glow, but do not stay glowing for hours and hours. Would be nice if it came with a VAULT like the TIME BOMB but it does come with a nice wooden presentation box for storage/display. Still I will rate this watch a 5 out of 5.

i have the titanium/silver dial, and i must say , it feels better than the GMT on the wrist. there are no pins than can come out, the band is mounted with bolts, so that shouldn't be a problem anymore. the dial is rather big, but not to the point that it is ridiculous, the square surface also makes it look bigger than it actually is. colour titanium is very classic, silver dial is perfect to the titanium. The shape of the band is something else, you hate it or love it, but it is a very oakley-esque . industrial design at it's top. all in all, a must-have

Color: Titanium/Black Face/Silver Dials

The first time I saw this watch appear on Oakley's site, my jaw just dropped. Without a doubt, the Time Tank completely exemplifies all that is Oakley, a design that is cutting edge, extremely unique, and never before seen anywhere else. Since seeing it, it has always been on my "to buy someday" list, and the day has finally come that I can own one.

First, to state the obvious...this watch is HUGE. If you *think* it's big...well don't think, because it IS BIG. Size was a concern to me as my wrist is definitely on the skinny side, measuring exactly 6 inches, and I was going to buy this watch sight unseen. Despite all the research I could do, for some strange reason this watch's measurements are simply nowhere to be found, so here they are for the benefit of anybody else considering this watch: it has a case diameter of 46mm including the crown, 43mm without, and the height from lug to lug is 53mm. The crystal is a perfect square of 33mm wide and tall. Thickness off the wrist is 11mm. Bracelet width is 28mm, and is 10mm thick at the thickest part, the hex bolt housing. Despite my skinny wrist, I can pull off this watch without too much worry...what makes it look so big in reality is the fact that it's square, and that the corners fill out your wrist much more than a round watch. In reality, this watch is the exact same size as most of Casio's G-shock watches, and I can pull those off just fine.

Thanks to the all titanium construction, this watch is relatively light for its size. I also own the Judge and GMT and have to say, those two can get pretty uncomfortable at times because of all the weight literally pressing into your wrist. The Time Tank still has good heft, simply because of how much metal it contains...you'll definitely still feel this watch on your wrist. With 5 links removed my Time Tank weighs 160 grams...my Judge also with 5 links removed weighs 220 grams in comparison.

On to what really gave this watch its name, the awesome bracelet. The design is just so incredibly original that you can't help but think "gee, why didn't anybody else come up with that idea earlier?", just like the spinal column bracelet used on the GMT and Judge. It visually looks very much like the treads of a tank, and that is what I have always thought whenever seeing pictures of this watch. Seeing it in person only reinforces this idea.

Each link of the bracelet is made out of solid brushed titanium, no folded stuff here, and is one of the easiest bracelets I've ever sized thanks to the hex bolts. The clasp opens through two side push buttons. One of the really awesome things about the Time Tank's clasp is that it has two segments, one permanently set in place, the other the part that flips open. Both parts of this clasp can be microadjusted using a spring bar to 3 positions, for a total of 6 microadjustable positions. As such, you're pretty much guaranteed a perfect fit one way or another. The washers seem to be a black, hard plastic, with no signs of oil or anything between the washers and the links. Whether or not they are really "reinforced with carbon fiber" or "self lubricating", is up in the air.

The entire watch case is also made from solid brushed titanium, while the back has an awesome large engraving of what looks like tracks left by tank treads going diagonally across the back of the case. The dial itself is beautifully detailed in a very industrial-like manner, and the sapphire crystal is very clear. The antireflective coating is visible at certain angles as a flash of purple, which is in itself pretty eye catching. The crown is a screw-in crown, and turns very smoothly when adjusting the time.

All in all, if you get this watch, it is definitely for the looks. It doesn't get 5 stars from me due to it using a simple battery powered quartz system. Internally there's just nothing special going on. Nonetheless I do think that the external design of the watch is worth its price...to design this watch and then to mold titanium to create this watch's shape can't be cheap. If you want a watch that really screams Oakley, then this is a must have.

Only have seen/worn the ti-bracellet and really love this watch. I wore the Ti with black face for 8 hours today and loved it all day, it is not so light as to be with out notice but it is still very light. The looks of the face and especially the band are fantastic! I do wish there was a smidge of shaping to the case, the left side seems a bit of an afterthought with the small shapping to try and match the right side, not quite done all the way to me. Other than that there is nothing to keep this watch from being absolutly the best, except for the thing about Ti scratching easy since it is soft, I have put a few marks on the store demo - yikes!!

The Tank is another great creation from Oakley! One of the primary reasons I enjoy Oakley watches is the unique bands and clasps - and the TT is no exception. The links on this band are simply amazing: the tread look, washers and hex screws at the ends are jaw-dropping. The clasp is fantastic - though I wish they incorporated a sweet icon (ala TimeBomb) in the clasp.

The casing: it looks big and square and it is big and square. I was a bit surprised that the second-hand on the main dial is not actually the second hand, but is used to track minutes on the stop-watch feature (reminds me of the GMT second hand). The main crown screw is very cool in that it actually screws into the casing for greater moisture protection.

Overall, this is just an amazing watch that is bound to get noticed. Not heavy at all (thought with the size, you almost wish it had a bit more heft to it). Everything about it feels very durable. Go out and get one, now! Don't wait six years for them to show up on Overstock.com for $450 (like TB).

TRULY AMAZING!

I cannot believe how light this watch is. When I first saw it I did thought it would weigh a ton. When I put it on, it didn't even feel like it was there. The style of the watch is awesome too. I'm not a very big fan of square/rectangular watches but this is something else. It is an awesome time piece. Details are beautiful. The only bad thing is that it didn't come with a Vault like the Time Bomb, but who cares, you can't have it all.

As soon as the outer cardboard is removed you know there is something very special inside. Wrapped inside the outer cardboard are two black O icon marked boxes. Inside the larger of the two boxes is the solid black padded box, with the TT coin embedded into it. In the smaller of the two boxes is the Time Tank itself, swathed in padding. The technology speaks for itself (see description above).
Links that look like the tread of a tank are held together by 2.5mm hex key screws, that protrude to hold each link inplace. unbelievably light considering the size.
The main dial hand counts seconds in stopwatch mode.
The bottom Stopwatch Sub dial displays 1/10 second (which rotates at one full rotation per second for the first 30 seconds), then switches to hour counting. The left hand sub dial counts minutes.
The hands can be fine tuned as per the GMT. Screw in crown adds to the qualty. All in all a stunning timepiece

Color: Titanium - Black Dial

Since the introduction earlier this year I had only seen the Time Tank on the Internet. In Holland there are no dealers that sell Oakley watches anymore. Nontheless, this watch had such an impact that I just had to buy it when I got the chance. During my Christmas vacation a trip to LA and of course HQ made that dream possible.

The first time it was handed to me I thought it would be so incredibly heavy, but although the big dimensions and the big bracelet it is fairly light. It still not a light watch, but compared to a GMT or Judge it is a lightweight.
The brushed titanium gives the watch a distinquished and rich look, when the bracelet with it's bolts, the crown and the rivets on the dial give it the industrial Oakley trademark to it.
The black dial with the titanium smaller dials makes a great contrast with the bright red hands.

This is just the best watch that ever came out of the minds of those mad scientists at Foothill Ranch. The detail and quality combined in such a masterpiece is something to stop and think about for a while. This watch will make the hole in you wallet worth while!
Pez -
Tried the leather band one on last weekend and WOW!! Ok yes it is BIG. REALLY BIG. But here's the strange thing, I have skinny little girl wrist, but it fit me perfectly. The Time Bomb, which most would say is smaller than the time tank, doesn't fit my wrist because it is too long. The Tank is big, but it actually fit my wrist better than the TB. To sum it up you will be noticed with this watch, it is very nice and classy, but also very daring and forward. In otherwords it's all things Oakley. I WILL own this watch one day with the metal band oh yes.

Caution: this watch is not for the faint of heart as this is the Rottweiler of wristwatches!
The designers and engineers @ Oakley have done a wonderful job in capturing the essence of this time piece. This is one LARGE watch and worthy of the name: TANK. But unlike my GMT, this item doesn’t feel has heavy to me, perhaps due to being fabricated out of Titanium? The links and clasp are true works of art. I work in a manufacturing industry that caters to the Military and we produce vehicles which actually use tracks with links such as Oakley has portrayed in the links of this watch, very realistic and intriguing at the same time. The face of this watch is very detailed and full of useful information. I am amazed that a fine timepiece of this caliber does not cost a lot more than Oakley sells these for, Outstand Job Oakley. I cannot see how they will out do themselves in their next masterpiece after the Timetank.

PS - The packaging for this watch if first rate too; an outer master shipping carton which inside consists of one smaller cushioned watch "transport" carton, then followed by a well done display case, in the true Oakley spirit.

I've had my Time Tank for about 6 months and, of 74 watches that I own, it is by far the most worn. Superb in design, it has, like a Porsche 911,an industrial beauty to it. It never ceases to arouse envious commentary. Superbly comfortable. It takes a certain personality to pull off wearing this watch.

Black Dial-Uno Band. This is my second Tank, but wanted to comment on the Ubo Band. Great Band, soft. Just wanted to make a comment about the length, I would have like to have seen it maybe 1/2" or so longer. Maybe 1 or 2 more sets of holes would have been nice.

Oh how the tank watch has evolved. Cartier's tank watch will always be the "original", but this is the most original take on the tank style watch that I have ever seen. Incredibl light despite it's hefty looks. I'm used to wearing an Omega SeaMaster and this is much lighter. I chalk that up to high quality, high strength, lightweight materials .vs chintzy aluminum. The red face really stands out.

The strap lives up to the "tank" moniker and indeed looks like a tank track on your wrist. They are super easy to size, thanks to the hex bolts.

All in all, a great watch and my favorite when it comes to Oakley watches. However, being a battery powered watch, I give it a HIGH 4 stars and not a 5. If this was a "self winding" or solar powered or kinetic drive watch, it would rate a full 5.

Get one, you won't be dissappointed.

I have 5 Oakley watches in my collection. And the TIme Tank is my absolute favorite! My only problem with this is...I can't seem to take it off! I just love it! If my other watches could be jealous...I think they'd be dying of jealousy now! He he! Dunno how I can go back to regular looking watches anymore :( Even my Rols and Tag Heuer watches look plain compared to this!

Casing: Titanium
Face: Black with Diamonds

Most of us are already well aware of the Time Tank, and it needs little introduction or detailed information. Having just acquired the "grail" of Time Tanks - the limited edition diamond dial - I felt it necessary to submit a review.

I must say that I was very excited at the opportunity to add this piece to the collection. From a collector's standpoint, having a prestigious piece such as a $3,500.00 watch seldom surfaces. After receiving the watch, however, I am very disappointed. The diamonds around the perimeter of the face are tiny; the diamonds on the center of the face (around the chronographs) are "microscopic". They're just SO small that it may have been better to not include them at all - really. It seems that Oakley tried to visually hide this by making the portion of the face where the microscopic diamonds are set a "chrome" color, helping to obscure the fact that the diamonds are incredibly small.

Overall, the watch still looks okay, and of course the construction includes some of the best materials that one could really ask for (full titanium casing and pure sapphire crystal). In the end, however, a watch carrying a hefty $3,500.00 pricetag - nearly three times the cost of any other full titanium Time Tank - really should be more than just "okay": it should be "spectacular". This watch isn't. I honestly feel that a $500 - $1000 premium on this watch (which would have translated into a retail value of approximately $1,700.00 - $2,200.00) would have been far more appropriate.

Titaniam Band- Red Face-Silver Dials

Band: The band has an eye catching design that looks much like a bike chain or tank treads heald together with hex screws and self lubricating graphite washers. Wrapped up with a solid clasp completing the design in a very solid fashion.

CASE: The casing on this beautiful watch may suggest there will be a weight issue as its rather large; however, with Oakley technology and innovation weight is not an issue. Titanium was a perfect choice for this watch for both weight reduction and stunning good looks. Ive been wearing the Minute Machine/Time Tank for over a week and i hardly even notice im wearing it until someone comments on it.

Amazing Watch!

Hello,
I got this as a gift from oakley. they gave me the leather strap one though. At first i thought it was big too...but after putting it on your wrist for a while, it doesnt seem as big...I dont wear it that much because im not really a watch type of guy...my brother got one too....and so did my manager..she sold hers for like 450 almost a year and a half ago...anyways...my brother says a lot of people ask about his watch...and i believe him because the times that i do wear it, it also brings attention...the only thing i do not like is that if i leave it sitting for a while (a week), the day displayed is a full day back...weird...but it is a nice watch indeed...

10-191 Black face w/Black leather strap

I once said to an Oakley store employee that I wasn't sure the Minute Machine (formerly Time Tank) was for me. Well, I somehow took the leap, and it's now my favorite watch. It's Titanium, so not as heavy as it looks. The leather strap is comfortable to wear, although the Titanium bracelet probably looks better for display purposes. Oakley.com shows that the leather-strap editions have unique watch face designs versus the bracelet editions. I think the all-black face is most awesome, especially with a black strap.
Newbie -
Red face/unobtanium band - Simply awesome! I liked the look of the watch right away. I kept debating between the titanium link band and the rubber. I'm not a small guy, but the titanium band still seemed too big for me. I might have been able to pull it off, but the rubber band is really makes it an everyday/all purpose watch. The best part is that I've never seen anyone else wear one of these watches, as opposed to the Rolex Submariner that EVERYONE down here has. Nice to have something a little different for sure!

Got my hands on a silver-faced, silver dialed with brown leather strap version. A I said earlier with the all-black leather strap model, the leather-strap versions, imo, turn out best color-wise. I've had compliments ranging from the postal clerk to a real estate agent at a new house showroom, and even from, surprise of surprises, my mother-in-law! One thing though:this won't fit those with very small wrists. I oscillate between the last and next to last strap-holes on the leather band as my wrist expands and contracts throughout the day and over seasonal changes. Can't afford to lose any more weight, otherwise these TT/MMs would hang loose. For now, these are my regulars, and should be for quite a long while.

Face: Red
Band: Titanium

Recently, it was asked "What one creation can you say epitomizes Oakley's industrial design?" One of the first things to pop into my head was the Time Tank.

This marvel of time-keeping machinery definitely has that sturdy, industrial feel to it, but surprisingly, it's a lot lighter than one might expect at first glance. Even with the impressively-designed Titanium band, this watch is easy to wear, though I do notice just a tad bit of fatigue after very extended periods of time, possibly due to where I wear the watch.

Adjusting the size of the band is quite easy. I was able to do it within a matter of seconds. And with the help of an awesome O-Reviewer, I was taught how to fine-tune the fitting so that it's just right by lengthening and shortening the band near the latch.

Overall, the Time Tank is a very eye-catching piece of hardware, and definitely worth its weight in gold...or rather, titanium.

I've never been a watch wearer so far. Then, a few month ago, I got my first Oakley watch, an Oakley Time Bomb (titanium dial). But that watch has so much value in my eyes that I can't resolve myself to get it out of his display case and wear it. I'm way too afraid about damaging it.
So I had to get an Oakley watch that I'd wear everyday. My choice went to the Time Tank (well, Minute Machine, ok). I bought it a few days ago and I'm already convinced that this is the best watch ever made in term of design.
The Time Tank is awesome, beautiful, wonderful, splendid ... and I could give a lot more adjectives is my english vocabulary was not that poor.
If you have a small wrist like mine, you'll have to remove 2 or 3 links, which won't be a problem with the hex-bolts.
You may go to an authorized Oakley dealer if you're afraid about damaging your watch by removing links though.
With respect to the weight, the watch seems really heavy but the titanium matter helps keeping a decent weight, so don't be afraid, despite a massive look, your wrist won't feel painful. I keep mine all day long and don't feel the need to remove it except for not damaging it at work.
The reaction of people looking at the watch are usually "Wow !", and this is definitely something that people look with curiosity.
I think that none of my O purchase have been more useful than this one. I'm going to wear it all year long, from summer to winter, with sunny or rainy days ... everyday, every time. So yes, this watch is a bit pricey, but come on, it's all worth it !
Garry -
Got my first Minute Machine and love the watch. I purchased the leather band version and have ordered the titanium replacement bracelet to have the ability to change it as I feel. This is an awesome watch and elicits many responses when others notice it. I have a medium to small wrist size and it is big but not to big. The weight is noticeable but I wear it as an every day watch with out any problems. I was on the fence for a long time before purchasing due to the sheer size of the watch and there is no Oakley store near to check it out at. I bit the bullet and have no regrets as this is one of my best Oakley purchases.

TERRORISM -
Casing: Titanium
Face: Red

The more I wear this watch the greater its appeal becomes. After finally unwrapping my first Tank and adjusting the band I can honestly say that I am more than impressed. The band is still the intriguing factor - both aesthetically and functionally - and adjustment is super-easy (so UNLIKE the requirement to physically "cut" the band of certain newer-released Oakley timepieces) with the use of a common hex wrench. The Red face on this particular timepiece, however, seems to glow and shimmer with a satin-like finish. Without question, the pictures on Oakley's website do little justice in the representation of this beautiful timepiece. Again, the only drawback is that Oakley could have made the watch just slightly smaller to appeal to a wider demographic.

TERRORISM -
Casing: Titanium
Face: Yellow

This particular tank deserves a bit of recognition because of its departure from the standard coloring of most of the other tanks and incorporating a slightly different dial. The other appealing factor (aside from the color differentiation) is that Oakley seems to have finally made something that they refer to as "limited" actually "limited". After a relatively short period of time the watch became unavailable on Oakley's website and has since been listed as "sold out". Perhaps the biggest drawback, however, lies in the fact that the "yellow" almost appears to be a dull "orange". It would have been nice if the yellow had been done correctly.

Red Face/Unobtainium Strap

I've owned this watch for three years and couldn't be happier. I've changed the strap once in that time because I used to wear it every day and the strap started cracking. I only wear it when going out now and I still got tons of compliments. Im looking to get another one with the titanium bracelet.
my boy blue -
I own a bunch of watches but the oakley time tank is the greatest watch i ever owned MASTERPIECE PERIOD !!!
Yellow or Black -
I ordered a Yellow limited Time Tank then had second thought. I changed it to Black and now I wanted Yellow.
Please help me out. I couldn't decide which one.
I afraid yellow color will be out of style in time. Basic black will look good for a long time.
Yellow or Black -
I posted earlier to get opinion Yellow or Black Face. I decided to go with black. I recieved 2 days ago. Awesome watch. It's lots lighter than it look. It feel very comfortable too. I give a 5 stars.
CrazyALee -
Picked up a used titanium bracelet one with black dial for just under 400....didnt come with box or anything and had just enough links as I still removed one to fit my wrist. Good deal still. Had quite some scratches and looks like it had its use but I simply took a SCOTCH BRITE and carefully scrubbed at the titanium and it removed almost all the scratches...the watch looks brand spanknig new...at least 9/10 condition again.

took it to oakley HQ to get battery replaced just to have a peace of mind that it will last at least another 4 years because I dont know how much longer the current battery would last.

Love this watch....has Oakley's philosophy and culture all over it. Its a lot lighter than it looks like everyone else says.
CrazyALee -
Got a really good deal on a used one. And due to its titanium finish, I simply used a SCOTCH BRITE sponge and carefully buffed out the scratches it had, both on the case and the bracelet. Looks almost brand new!

The bracelet is my favorite part. It looks like bullets, tank treads, bicycle chains from the side, something crazy along that line.

It has a nice weight to the watch...its not too heavy and not too light. I love anti-reflective coating on the sapphire crystal, how it gives a bluish/purple hue at certain angles under the light. This watch has Oakley's heritage and culture all over it.

THis is a very unique watch!!
Ian -
Titanium/Yellow

I always kind of liked this watch, but after meeting up with a bunch of other Oakley fanatics, I realized that I hadn't really "matured" as a collector: I was one of two people that didn't have one. I got to try one on, and after getting a feel for it, I resolved to buy one.

I got an unbeatable deal on the exact one I wanted at the exact time I wanted to buy one. This is now my favorite watch, though it's a bit much for everyday wear.

I have very large wrists, so this fit me without removing a link. It garners a lot of attention. Everyone notices it. It's so far removed from conventional watch styling that everybody seems to comment on it.

I recommend getting one to anyone who is on the fence. It is the mark of the true Oakley connoisseur, and when paired with an x-metal, they're an unbeatable combination.

The only reason I give it 4 stars is because the buy-in price dissuaded me for a full 9 years. Now, I wish I had gotten one much sooner.
anonymous -
I've had my Time Tank for sometime. LOVE IT! My only problem is I can't get a replacement band for it. Would love the titanium bracelet but not even the leather band can be bought from Oakely! I'm crushed!!!!! Any ideas where to get them? It's worth the price just have to find them.

An elegantly mad treasure! Beautiful timepiece.
The Game -
Frame: Black Chrome (Ferrari)
Lens: Black Iridium Polarized


I usually prefer the larger wire frames such as the inmate/deviation/plaintiff so when I tried these on I did not expect to like them. After looking over the color combos the Ferrari version stood out the most and it was polarized which I like. The coverage was ok compared to the larger frames I wear and liked the way they looked on me so I pulled the trigger on them. The hollowpoint hinge was also a reason I bought them, after reading that they never needed to be tightened. It also comes with a nice Ferrari case.
The Game -
Frame: Satin Black
Lens: Black Iridium Polarized

I shouldn't have been surprised when these were released. The company did the same thing with the Jupiter Factory Lites to the Jupiter Carbons. The color combos were different this time and the Matte Black with Ice really stood out to me because the accents looked great on them and I didn't own too many Ice lenses. So when I went to check them out in store they just seemed a bit off. So I turned my attention to the polarized ones and the Satin Black felt and looked great on me. I was able to trade a pair I didn't want anymore for these because full retail was pricey and I already owned the Ferrari tincan. I didn't think there would be a noticable different from wearing them in the store. It wasn't until I wore them through out the day they really felt great. I never had a problem with the regular tincans but these were just more comfortable. If you're torn between the regular and carbon, I'd say spend the little extra on the carbon. These have gotten way more face time than the regular tincans in half the time.
pastor.elfstrom -
I really like this frame. The new hinges are i godd addition to the fantastic inventions Oakley stands for.
They fit nicely around my head and the arms holds on good. They have a nice flex because of the carbon fiber. The only thing I can come up with to criticize is that they are not wrapping around the face as they could have. That takes away a star.
Dann -
I love this frame. Much like the 24k XX, it combines what I believe is X-Metal on the nose and stems, and plasma on the orbitals. If you like the 24K, than this is the subdued serious version.
Iggy -
This frame really stands out, I remember seeing two other people wear them and I nearly broke my neck turing my head when I caught a glimpse of them. Definitely original! I'd give them a 4.5, but only because it doesn't seem to suit me very much; its too conspicuous for someone so subdued in appearance!
jumpman73 -
I love these frames. I'm a very big fan of dark color/light color contrasts and the TiO2 pretty much does that. I wish Oakley still made them in Juliets so I could pick up my second pair. I guess I'll just have to settle for x double xx.
BronzeT -
One of a kind and yet not too flashy.I think this look better paired with Ice or 24K lenses IMHO.As mentioned its unique yet subdued.Definitely a must have if you're a collector.
LEX7 -
this is another badass frame, i have it on my XX X-metal.
i love the two tone frame that is identical to the 24K frame but instead of gold they use black.
very very nice with the black iridium but i put a 24k lens in instead for a truly unique look.
oogie -
I agree that Ti02 is loveable for the same reason as the 24k frame. The color distinctions just seem to make the frame. As much as I really want to get this frame, I just have a hard time justifying a 3rd pair of XX.
TheVault -
The other 2 tone x-metal frame from Oakley, it goes well with anything, I have put ice in my XX Metal X and the look is just stunning because of the dual tone frame.

Really unique, I love it.
Rick -
Very nice frame, but just lacks some of the pizzaz of other available colors. I think the dull tones of both silvers just makes this frame a little boring. To each his own I guess.
lucky13 -
The TiO2 frame has a sporty color combo, and is one of my favorites! The contrast of the colors makes the frame stand out; yet at the same time, the colors also compliment each other nicely.
Ian -
This colorway is yet another reason to own the XX. Distinctive, beautiful. It works very well with black iridium lenses.
junfatt -
I will give them 5 star.
Dann -
Similar to Silver, but made of Titanium instead of C5 alloy. It's very matte and holds up very well.
Dann -
The standard Time Bomb frame color. It's been scuffed up pretty well, but still holds it's own. Pretty much the same material as the T Wire.
Pander -
Titanium is always nice on a watch! Definatly if that watch is called the Time Tank / Chronograph / ... (fill in later).
The color af Titanium is like no other metal out there, the warm dark color makes it very classic yet a little bit rough. Too bad it sratches pretty fast.
Iwan -
Actually the colour itself isn't anything special but I do like the fact that it's real bare metal and so there is no change of chipping or anything like that. I give it 4 skulls for being honest and not trying to hide its appearance LOL
junfatt -
They are very special, look like a naked x-metal frame. I hope that Juliet can come out with titanium plus Gold Iridium or Titanium Iridium.
Ed -
There's nothing like the color of raw titanium. While I don't particularly care for the "Light" finish on C5 frames, I like this color because it shows off the real color of titanium.
Ed -
Satin finish Titanium. 'Nuff said.

Just plain beautiful with no added embellishment.
Ed -
This satin dark silver finish is indeed classy but is also prone to scratches and scuffs. Goes particularly well with blue or other bright-colored watch faces.
Ed -
Can refer to several different finishes depending on the model and generation. I have this on Penny, and it is a no-nonsense dark silver that shows off the natural beauty of the X-Metal titanium alloy.
jumpman73 -
Very nice conservative colorway. Its very lightweight. I love these on Rx just because they are so light and very stylish.
bong -
Oakley's Titanium based watches are a smooth, matte, and silvery. it looks classy and understated. i have this finish on my Timebomb, and makes for a ligh and confortablw watch, but i do have to give ample warning that Titanium scratches and scuffs easily.
XX -
Has a great stylish look to it. Very durable and dependable. Complements almost any lense color.
Dann -
This is the basis Titanium frame, similar to the T Wire and Time Bomb's. There's no special coats or colors, it's just buffed down Ti with a low polish.
DarkJuliet -
My rating for this colorway refers to the first generation of Titanium which is that matte color with a very serpentine feeling to it. Remains one of my favorite colors to look at with its limestone whiteness. Unfortunately, just like the plasma, the coating will rub off after years of use and if your sweat is caustic enough.
jumpman73 -
I really like this frame. Mainly b/c they aren't as many out there like the plasma and carbons. Its a really nice alternative to the plasma just because the color is a bit lighter and gives really nice contrast with dark color lenses.
Pander -
Have a Penny with this frame finish. It makes the whole look nice and industrial. Plain steel does not have that typical shine to it as titanium has. Titanium is a lot warmer looking. Took cool it down I have the Ice lens in it.
Rick -
To be honest, there's not much difference that I can see between a Titanium and Plasma frame. Some Plasma frames are very silvery though. The titanium frame was only avaialbe on the Juliet with Gold Iridium and the 2nd Romeo relaease with Gold Iridium also. There are some generational changes that have occured which make it even harder to discriminate between the Plasma and Titanium so I don't think the Ti has really made an impact. It has no niche. For that, she is losing marks.
Rick -
Excellent frame by Oakley. Featherlight and strong. Has that truly "Titanium" feel to it.
DoctorCrip -
I have 2 Icon Smalls - 1 is Polished Titanium and 1 is Titanium. I really like both of these watches, but the Titanium gets a 5, while the Polished version gets a lower rating due to the fact that it is much easier to keep the Titanium watch clean. The other reason I like it better is though it seems equally - or even slightly more - prone to scratches and scuffs, it is much harder to notice than on the Polished Titanium. I like the way the Titanium and the Polished Titanium both look, but I think the Titanium is nicer because it gives the watch a more classy, sophisticated and unique look.
Pander -
Very light and durable. Great combination with every lens option out there. Too bad it's expensive, but when you cough it up, you get your money's worth big time!
Lali -
My RX O3 has this frame color and I must say it's my favorite so far. It's classic look makes it ideal for everyday fit and it's feather light (only 14g).
The Dealer -
The 1st Generation Titanium Juliet frame is the de facto standard of which all sunglasses should be judged. The color is perfect, and is the only option that truly shows the lines of the Juliet without being ostentatious. The 2nd Generation looks great as well, and seem to go better with the default gold-iridium lens than does its predecessor. However, both Generations are hard to find (the 1st almost impossible), so be expecting a large price tag affixed with them.
LEX7 -
this is gorgeous, some people say it looks alot like the black chrome frame but its much more coppery red. lovely and shiny.
i think this frame colour would also look amazing in an X-metal.
Dann -
These aren't to be confused with the other Clear lens, which is used for Prescription glasses, and let pretty much all light in. The Titanium Clear lets half the light in, which is plenty well into even nighttime. I wear these to the movie for some reason (I made it a tradition, don't ask why), and also when driving at night. They are still 100% UV protecting, and have a mirror coating that you can't easily see past from the outside.
bong -
i use these on really overcast days when it seems dark outside but i still end up squinting without any sunglasses. these work really well for these days, and the 100% UV protection helps. they're pretty much clear lenses with a mirror coating, but cuts enough light to make things confortable to see through. other than that, they're pretty much for the fashion conscious.
LEX7 -
I dont see how these are 54%, when I used this lens outdoors I really could not tell the difference between wearing it and not wearing it.
Ihe titanium coating does make it look good from the outside
But i dont know why this lens is appearing on so many different oakleys at the moment.
BrianJ1888 -
This lens was pretty unremarkable. I got it for my HalfJacket, and ended up returning it because it wasn't what I was looking for. It is not very noticable in the sun, but indoors or in the dark, it is. However, I got horrible reflections on the inside of the lens. This prompted their return.

The concept of a clear lens with a mirror on it is cool enough to get a 2. Ruby Clear and Gold Clear might be better options if you can find them.
dj.MLYT -
I was hoping these would be a clear lens with only a light reflective coating on them, but unfortunately, indoors especially, the reflective titanium coating is pretty strong. That said though, these are a really cool looking set of lenses, especially in my Monster Dogs, it just wasn't what I thought it was. I can hardly see how these are 54% light transmission though, it seems just as light as my ruby clear lenses, which are 92%....
frankie4fingers -
Good mirror in the glasses i have (juliet, thump2), neutral and bit to light for bright sun, but fashionable color. wearable to all clothes and good for walks in the evening.
cobraFIVE -
Must not be to many shooters out there ;) These are great lenses. They block the UV and let enough light in to keep the iris constrected thus maintaining a longer focal distance. Time to adjust from target to sight in greatly minimized. If you are tired of seeing yellow or orange, try these. If you must have a darker lense try G30 or the Jade.
fullback -
Nice stylish lens - don't wear them in sunlight cuz they won't do a thing for you. Good for overcast days and even indoors too if you have a nice wire frame. The ghosting is not too bad - you'll get used to it.
dan-E -
These look, um interesting, from the outside, having a faint refelctive quality but but for the wearer, it's hard to notice any real difference. Outdoors, it's only slightly different from their clear lenses and indoors, there's sometimes some bad reflections on the inside. It's probably for the trendier crowd since clear and almost-clear lenses seem in.
jumpman73 -
I really like these lenses. I have them in my FMJ half jackets by BTO. I wish you could buy these in replacement lenses. They are great for sunset bike rides. That way you can keep your shades on even when the sun is down. I'm definitely getting these for my fourth pair of half jackets, pearl whites. I'll also be looking for a way to get my juliets with these.
sparra -
My brother has these in his Dartboards, and they look very cool from the outside. However, I agree with Alexis, I can't see much effect in changing light transmission. However, for the cool factor plus the obviously great protection - a good lens.
oogie -
Perfect option for those that want the clear lens, but with a little flash. Although the transmission rate seems very high, this lens is just fine in the lowest of light conditions. And the reflectiveness on the outside brings the Oakley slant to a clear lens. Awesome!
Pander -
These are just perfect for those overcast days. These will block out the little bit of sun that can come out between the clouds and even if there is no light, you still look very stylish. I agree with those who say it is more of a fashion lens, but a well performed one! Now you can finally wear Oakleys at night/inside.
Rick -
I think I really love these lenses. I say "think" because I haven't had them long enough to say whether I will love them years from now. I really like the look of them. That said, they do have a problem with reflection on the inside of the lens. This "ghosting" is something that will annoy you if you wear them enough.

Edit: After a year of owning the Ti Clear I can conclude that they serve a purpose. Not a general purpose however. They are good for shady days when you want to look cool. The ghosting effect can be overcome if you really work at it.
contrabandit -
They look cool from the outside but other than that theese lenses are my favorite aversion. They are utter useless! They dont improve your vision in any way (unlike H. I. Blue for instance)! They add a TINY bit of brownish/reddish tone, mostly percepted as a light increase in warmth, but other than that you are fighting horrible reflections from the inside iridiumcoating - basicly and a general feeling that you are looking at the world through vitawrap.
Munkfish -
Not really useful, but definitely stand out - love them in carbon Juliets! Definitely a fashion lens.
dirtjump_boy -
i dont like the ghosting efect something that annoys me, but the most is that this lens is utter useless, when its sunny u its like u dont wear anything and when its overcast it makes everything even darker not like h.i yellow/blue or persimmon.
Titanium Clear is for the fashion side.
x-metalman -
In my opinion, an utterly useless lens. It doesn't really bring anything to the table, except ghosting problems and a transmission rate that has to be a lie. The Ti coating rarely comes into effect, so that's a no for me. Rick seems to like these, but he's pretty much Japanese now and they're notorious for their clear lens fascination. Sorry guys, not my bag. Yet anyway. Until the mirror coating gets a little better.
Perkasa -
Bought a user-replacable Titanium Clear (13-544) for my O Rokr, test it for two weeks and this turns to be one of my best Oakley investments.

Despite being "clear" it is quite soothing. It is actually more soothing than VR50 (VR50 being contrast lens so everything appears brigther). I definitely can see the difference between using this lens than naked eye.

I can recommend this lens for driving, especially those who drive in and out of tunnels and shadows. There are very rarely sunlight falls straight into the driver's face, unless, of course, we have the sunroof opened.

The mirror finish shouts "This are sunglasses! Not Prescription Glasses!" Which some people like and some don't. I personally prefer something less reflective as I use these as work Safety Glasses.

Why one of my best investments? This lens makes my O Rokr more versatile:
- I now can use my O Rokr indoor (at shopping centres, for instance)
- I now can use my O Rokr as Safety Glasses at the workshop in my workplace
- I now can use my O Rokr as day and night bluetooth headset (when I am driving other cars that don't have bluetooth carkits). Now I can use one bluetooth "headset" for everything instead of having one for day and one for night.

Recommended for:
- Those who need to wear the Oakley indoor (O Rokr and Thumps come into mind)
- Those who want to turn their Oakley into safety glasses
- Driving, although some people will object to this one.

Este par lo adapte para Rx y simplemente son lo mejor, gran visibilidad, excelente estetica para mi los mejores Why y los mejore Rx de mi coleccion.
TERRORISM -
Titanium Clear - the name suggests almost exactly how the lens performs: "clear" allows almost all light to filter through, yet the "titanium" stops deadly UV rays from penetrating your eyes. The amazing part about these lenses is that although the titanium iridium provides somewhat of a "mirrored" finish and almost obscures your eyes from the outside world, you can still use them for most activities - including driving - at night. Be aware, however, that they provide almost no protection whatsoever from bright conditions. Still, having your eyes sheltered from UV bombardment is better than nothing...
Tim cooper -
Unusual effect and technological I must say. A silvery tint on an ordinary clear lens allows 54% light to the eye whilst still guarding against all UV as Oakley claims. Will not hide your eyes and a stormmy weather lens only,useless to wear in the full sun.An un-interesting look I sold my old lenses and I won't be in a hurry to buy anymore.
Iwan -
It has a nice semi-mirror effect and they do look much better in reality than on pictures but ultimately when are you going to wear them? A collector's piece only
Raymond Karlsson -
I have this tint in a pair of Half Jacket XLJs. They are more like some kind of Light Grey than Clear in my opinion. Works fine as a very neutral alternative to coloured siblings (Yellow, Persimmon, Light Blue, G30 etc.) in mixed/cloudy conditions. But I prefer the real Clear as soon as the light is low.
BMXSwee -
The 54% refers to all wavelengths of light not just the visible spectrum. I have this lens in my Flak Jackets along with VR28 black Iridium polarized for the brighter days. The subtle coating works well when out mountain biking in the forest and is also useful when riding in the flood lit bike park. Would definitely recommend these lenses as a 2nd or 3rd tint option.
splitboarder -
I think some have missed the application of this lens. For me, its priceless. How long have I struggled with the persimmons, the h.i yellows only to be skiing/snowboarding blind at night, in super low light, mountain shade. I knew there was a clear option but it was for the MX crowbar, then an ebay search found these babies. Stylish, but sick light transmission, 10 times better then h.i yellow for night skiing, super stoked to have found these!
Marc -
This is the best lens I've found for reducing my light sensitivity. With these I can spend more than 20 mins in a shop without flipping into panic mode and can use a PC without it triggering a migraine, the bonus being I can still see colours accurately when processing photos.
Plus I'm still approachable because people can see my eyes, vital in an office.

A life-changing lens.
Farlius -
Had these for work in my Half Jackets. The slight lens tint was okay in normal indoor lighting, but with lights lowered I noticed a difference. Once these got beat up enough I switched to the regular clear. Unsure of exactly the benefit of the ever so slight grey tint. Perhaps a little more reflective?
Steve -
I have them in the xlj version for half jacket, and they're awesome! It took me ages to ever find them on sale, but I finally did and it was well worth the investment. Great for brighter overcast days, when it's still a little to bright to wear nothing. They work great for anything done at night like skiing, or baseball. They also help soften some light while indoors. Overall great lens.

I love this sticker! I wish they still had it available. It's a perfect sized ellipse to add a little flair to anything & it hangs on forever! I even put one on my shotgun

If I'm not mistaken, I think this was the original metal icon sticker. A fantastic find back in the day, this baby was a sweet demonstration of your love of the o.
Ed -
Although much smaller and flatter than the current Metal Icon Stickers, I actually prefer this one. Too bad it has been discontinued for some time. Like other metal stickers, this one is very solid and has strong adhesive. Nice way to add a little O to just about anything.
DisturbedEarth -
Color: silver

I am pretty sure I have every single sticker oakley offers...don't use them much but they are cool. My buddy put one of these on the back window of his truck 2 years ago and it is still there - pretty impressive.
DoctorCrip -
Just like with my other stickers - a USA Metal Icon and 2 Thumbprint Icons - it just sits in my display case because I don't want to stick it anywhere permanently. I really like this Icon and the raw titanium color of it is so cool. I was surprised how light it is - you can hardly feel it when you hold it in your hand - but I guess that's to be expected since it's made of titanium.
Farlius -
I have had one for years. Initially on the inside-roof-lining-sunglass case in my truck, it actually came off without a hitch after three years and now I have it on my ikea 'Oakley' display case in my room. Classic titanium styling and feels very robust despite the size. If I had my time back, like a lot of Oakley accessories, I would have bought more than one.
kingphilbert -
I had looked through this lens many times it the old T-Wire and always thought it was kind meh. When I went for a pair of Monster Dogs this lens was in the Bronze frame which seemed to be the best combo for me so I gave it a whirl. Man am I glad I did. It's a bronze base with essentially Black iridium minus all the mirror. Like I have said in other reviews, nothing beats a lens with a bronze base. It has worked in all light conditions for and the contrast is excellent. They even help in the rain while driving. I believe this lens will always be worth the extra $10-$20 over regular iridium's.
BrianJ1888 -
This is a great lens. I'm usually not a fan of bronze lenses, but this one is close enough to neutral that I don't mind. It's also fairly dark. I haven't tried it yet, but I imagine the polarized version is spectacular.
RubyMars -
Probably one of the most popular lenses in our store right now. A very dark lense, A decent amount of contrast. A gorgeous, perfect, silver mirror. Special lense etching. Looks best on polished frames, especially dark frames.
BigHonu -
Good lens for a variety of lighting conditions. Not quite as soothing on the eyes as a VR28 base in bright sun, but still comfortable. Decent color rendition with greens getting a boost. Better than expected transmission when the clouds come out. Very versatile.
o-believer -
The difference between this one and any other lens is like VHS vs. DVD, that's what I always said when I was in retail. Perfect for bright light, but also working on cloudy days.

As Lex says, this lens is a pukka lens, suitable for anything from bright midday sun to grey, overcast typical english weather ;) My favourite lens and when combined with T wire 2.0 they're perfect.

These are pretty cool. They are different. I only have one set of these and they are on my Romeo 2's. I like them but I would rather have the Ice or Fires on. They seem a little dark for me, but to each is own.

My second Favourite lens.
I have only just got this lens on my Hatchets after wanting it for soo long.
The Mirror coating is awesome, I have worn this lens in all conditions from super sunny to on the train at night.
I love wearing it when driving cos its one of those lenses that you can put on and keep it on even if the conditions change.
absolutmuah -
great lens!
increases contrast yet Very very comfortable on the eyes even in bright sunlight.
kinda like gold iridium... BUT BUT BUT with a better mirror coating.
gold iridium tends to let people see your eyes.
so when you've got to remain cool. these are the lenses for u !
ball5out -
to me nothing special about this. just seems like another black iridium. Except for the titanium etching on the lens and the tint which makes it seem more costly than it is
dan-E -
Just as dark as Black Iridium lenses but with the added feature increased contrast, you'll see why this is one of the most popular lenses out there.

I love this lens! The bronze base is so easy on the eyes and the silver mirror is very nice. I also like the TITANIUM etching. All in all, a very classy lens. One of my new favs.
Ed -
Probably my favorite lens. The bronze base is great for anything from partly cloudy to super bright conditions. The Iridium coating looks like Black Iridium but is actually silver in color. Also, in most applications, "TITANIUM" is etched at the bottom edge of the left lens (a nice touch).
sparra -
I love this lens, my second fave after Ice. The iridium coating looks really classy, and the brown hue is unexpected yet great feature. It's also great in many light conditions, from overcast to bright sunlight, with great light transmission.
oogie -
Strikes me as a great improvement to the Gold Iridium lens. Similar hue, but a bit softer. But the look on the outside is much more striking. Plus, I love any lens that is worth the laser etching!
banarno -
Awesome lens,that has just the right balance for just about any condition you like.
x-metalman -
I've heard so many good things about this lens that it is making me want to get some. If I do, it's gonna be on the Romeo 2. Can't wait.

best lens in all of the oakley lens range. gotta have at least one in your eyewear, you can have them on your head at any time during the day
Pander -
Makes everything nice and easy on the eyes. Like the etching on the left lens. Very versatile in as well low as bright light conditions. Love it in my Spike!
winger28 -
Have these lenses on my bottlecaps, had them custom made so i could have these lenses. They have a good mirror coating and are good for all conditions. They add great contrast to everything.
strake -
They are really comfortable looking through that I can wear them the entire day. They are so good that I have them both in my half jackets and Romeo 2 frame. If you drive, you will definitely like them very much.

The contrast is great and I love the mirror coating. It is discreet yet offers a refreshing alternative to the trusty ole black iridium. It has something of a silverish tone when seen under the light, plus how many non-polarized lenses have the priviledge of being laser engraved with "titanium" on the bottom of the lens?
fullback -
Awesome lens indeed! I have these for my HJs. Contrast is great, especially when looking at landscape (blue sky becomes a bit grey, greens are vivid, etc ...). I agree that Titanium Iridium is a versatile lens. You can wear them on sunny and/or cloudy days. At first, it took a while to get used to the bronze base, especially after wearing grey-based lenses for so long. Everything seemed too bright but eventually, your eyes will adjust.
Rick -
Fantastic lens. Great in a variety of lighting conditions. Very rich and classy color. Everyone who tries these comments on how nice they are. Kind of like "Blue Blocker" commercials back in the day. These satisfy that niche between the boring and bland black and greys, and the outlandish colors such as Fire. A subtle, but interesting look. The amount of 5 out of 5 skull ratings does not surprise me one bit.
adrian13 -
one of my 2 current favs. i have it in my new zeros spike and romeo 1. Wad can i say? looks cool, blocks the sun well, enhances contrast. only problem is the price $$$$$. Any frame with these lenses will come at a premiun price. Minus one skull for that.
jrbusser -
A mi gusto no muy buenos para cuando hay mucho sol, pero te dan una vision muy agradable que no obscurese el ambiente, el gusto se rompe en genero pero recomiendo mas los black iridium
Tim Cooper -
Very good lens. If you wear black lenses and alternate to these it takes a little getting used to the higher contrast but you will eventually adjust. A very nice silver tint and lots of colour contrast,even though it allows only 10% Light to the eye the view makes it seem lots more. Increases long distance sight and suitable 100% for driving, in fact these are far better for driving than Black iridium. I personally would not recommend Black iridium for driving. Perfect lens for full sun and dark overcast and as I mentioned also driving.A great golf lens.
Iwan -
You've heard it before and that's because it's true: this is the best lens you'll ever wear. It increases contrast while still being very dark. On the outside it looks very classy in an understated kind of way
OAKLEY4LIFE -
These lenses are perfect for overcast cloudy days, because they seem to brighten up everything you see with an almost sepia look.
I have these in my Titanium Spike, they seem to be more scratch resistant than my other lenses.
Lali -
I read lots of positive reviews on this site and I gave a try what this lens really is. I never had a lens that increased contrast, so it was quite unusual look what I first tried them on. Everything was a bit brownish and the object seemed old-school in the beginning.
After a few weeks my eyes got used to this tint and I must admit this lens became my favorite. The contrast makes the edges sharper and the tint itself is suitable for almost all light conditions.
The Iridium coating with silver mirror makes the lens perfect! Recommended for every Oakley fan.
WEC -
The first time I wore this lens it was overcast (and not really that bright) outside. The contrast-enhancement is as defined as any lens I've tried previously. Today is my second day wearing them, and it is bright and sunny outside. I'm relatively photo-sensitive, and I find these almost too powerful in bright sunlight - almost to the point of having to squint with my glasses ON. Great lens that really boosts contrast in medium to low light, but I would recommend something a little darker (Ice, Black iridium, etc) for bright, sunny days. The contrast enhancement is just too strong in bright, sunny conditions.
Dymondo -
I Work in a Vision Express Store in England and after constantly trying on oakley's out of the display cabinet, i couldn't choose a lens, we didn't have any titanium irid's in our frames but i had an empty frame at home (Canteen if must know, Matte Black).

Ordered a pair of Dual Lens Replacements for the frame - waited 5 weeks - they were worth the wait. constantly get told off by the girlfriend for wearing them all the time, sunny, overcast and even raining too. Greens look amazing through the lens and its just a soft colour for the eye to look through!!!!
Micah -
A tremendously versatile lense, like everyone is saying. Its bronze base is light enough that it doesn't darken everything around you, yet is perfect for very sunny days. When the sun fades out, the increased contrast is perfect. The silvery mirror effect is beautiful and with the laser-etched titanium in the corner of the lense, just makes for a perfect design detail. I have these in a pair of my Half Jackets (pairs well with the FMJ 5.56) and the polished Romeo 2.0's.
Ian -
It's decent so far, except the $60 tag on replacement lenses was a bit much to swallow. It has less light transmission than Gold Iridium, more than Black Iridium, and the contrast is somewhere between the two. That's it in a nutshell: Black Gold Iridium. It would look pretty awesome with the Black Gold colorway.
Raymond Karlsson -
One of the most striking dark Oakley lenses (have them in the Half Jacket version). Cool, classy looking from the outside.
Best in bright and sunny conditions. A bit dark and dull for for exercising like running or cycling where one could use a bit more contrast. Maybe an alternative to Black Iridium.
plutonium54 -

This must be the best oakley lens ever.Why?Because it's made for very bright conditions,while it feels bright enough and suitable for all hours of the day until dusk,it provides good contrast,along with a very nice and interesting tint,not as aggresive to look through as the gold iridium however.The titanium iridium has the best mirror effect.What you see from the outside is the absolute mirror,totally bright and colourless,and the etched "titanium",further dinsticts it from the rest of the oakley lenses.So,there you have it,it's got contrast,it's made for very bright days,while working very well on overcast or less sunny situations,and it has very good mirror effect.In other words,it does pretty much everything,and it has the whole package.I only wish I had the polarized version...Five big stars without a question!!!
SPiCOLi -
Just picked up a pair of Gascans with Titanium Iridium.

Love the bronze colour when viewed through, but the look of mirrored silver from when viewed from afar. Great for driving on the road or on the water.

Have always had Gold Iridium (actually prefer them over polarized ones too), but these are my new favourite. Have never liked Black Iridium but liked the look of them from afar; Titanium Iridium gives me what I like from both Gold and Black Iridium and joins them in one lens.

Highly recommended!
Celicagame -
I'm usually not inti bronze based lenses but this one is different. Its mirrored coating is amazing and the contrast is right on. I wish these came in my titanium spikes polarized.
Farlius -
Very dark contrast. Great in extreme light and actually not so good for lower light conditions. Looks great in the T wire 2.0 frame. Very reflective, sort of Matrix-like.
Jon -
These are great! I have these in my Fives 3.0 and they make everything look much nicer than the dull Grey base lens options. I was a big fan of the VR28 Black Iridum, and have that in 3 different frames. I wasn't sure how I would like the Brown Base, but these offer a much different overall look and I found myself really enjoying the difference in contrast. The only problem I have with the Brown base lenses, are that they are all very similar: Tungsten, Titanium, Bronze, etc. Hopefully Oakley will come up with another great contrast lens base. Who knows.
efdeel -
great lens, i'm in bali where the sun is very bright....its perfect....i like increasing contrast lens. this lens also good even when it afternoon or early in the morning. i have its in my polished Romeo 2, perfect.
EastCoast -
This is a fantastic lens.

From the inside - the amber tint isn't overwhelming but it's nice. The polarization makes colours stand out so much it's disappointing to take these off.

From the outside - nice mirror finish, can see one's eyes only partially and under very specific conditions, otherwise it's totally reflective. At the same time there isn't that 'look-at-me' factor (like Fire or 24k) which I think is a plus.

I can't see how this could be any better.
Rob -
I have these lenses in my half jackets and they are by far my favorite lenses ever.

First the look. They are probably my favorite looking lenses from the outside. You can sometimes see the bronze base underneath the silver mirror. These lenses are not boring like grey or black iridium, but still are not obnoxious like Fire Iridium.

These are amazing from the inside too. Kind of like the gold iridium lenses but a bit more neutral. They offer great contrast in lower light conditions (I can wear them until the sun actually sets), but also can handle the sun. I will probably get a pair of Ice Iridium lenses however, for the beach. Although these lenses are polarized, they let in a bit to much for a really sunny beach day, and probably for skiing in the sun as well (I haven't gotten to wear these lenses in really bright conditions on the mountain yet).

Also, the bronze base tint really brings out greens. When I play tennis, for example, the ball really jumps out from the background. I think this effect is amazing in a sport lense.

This is a wonderful all around lense (my daily one in my half jackets) and the best lense I've ever experienced. Well worth the extra cash.
Sunglasses Lover -
Just changed my Pit Boss VR28 Black Iridium Polarized lenses to the Tungsten Iridium Polarized lenses, I love them, I think this by far the best lenses Oakley made, I'm very happy with the change!
Airborne -
I've always preferred neutral lenses. In fact, I've staunchly avoided them entirely, because I've never really wanted to get used to a new color palate for my eyes. I got the Ti Irid because they come standard with the Titanium Crosshairs, a frame I was dying to own. I figured if I hated the lenses, I could always swap them out with Black Iridium or Black Iridium Polarized.

Fortunately, no swap will be necessary; these lenses have won me over. They are a contrast lens, but at least they're subtle. I give 4/5 stars because I would still prefer a neutral base, but they're excellent nonetheless. They're pleasantly bright, and useful in a wide variety of light conditions. I had them on yesterday while it was bleak and overcast, but kept them on after the sun had come out. They performed great in both circumstances.

UPDATE:
I still prefer a neutral base in most circumstances, especially in extremely bright light, where contrast lenses can be a bit too much. However, these are the best lenses I've ever used while driving, no matter what the lighting conditions. In bright light, they cut glare coming off the dashboard. On overcast days, they bring out the contrast.
Ivan Drop -
Best lens in my opinion..... wish it came in more frames!
banarno -
Awesome lens,that has just the right balance for just about any condition you like, and the polarization cuts down on glare if you are near water.
UBERCHUCK -
This is by far the best lens I've owned and I've been through more than a few in the oakley line including: Black, Black Polarized, Fire Polarized, Ruby, + Red, Gold, and VR 28 (I've tried many more also). The polarization is much more subtle and useful than with something like Black Iridium or Fire Polarized (the polarization in B.I. was distracting at times). For some reason my line of sight in bright conditions is significantly further with these than my other favorites such as Gold Iridium. Banarno is right on, these are perfect from very bright conditions to overcast. The only thing I don't like is that they appear very yellow when you're using them on overcast days. Instead of black iridium this should be the lens that's the first choice for Oakley to put in their frames. Bronze based lenses are the best and I think this is the top of the heap. IMO: Titanium Iridium is the best lens Oakley offers.
sc -
Love these lenses for all the reasons listed below. They are a very subtle bronze, and a great lens all around.

One point though -- I originally wanted to do a custom pair of the Half Jackets with a silver frame and these lenses. I didn't realize, however, that the lenses were bronze tinted. It was pointed out to me that the silver and bronze wouldn't quite go together, so I ended up going with matte black, which I now see is a much better choice. These lenses go best with black or darker brown/bronze frames, I think. White might be fine too, alhtough I haven't seen the combination..
lucky13 -
Contrast is more on the subtle side, compared to the other contrast lenses I've tried.

Color-wise... Definitely adds a yellowish-brown tint to things when looking through them.

The Iridium coating on this one is very pronounced -- like a mirror when looking at the lenses from the outside. Though in very sunny conditions, you can still kind of see the eyes behind them.

Very good versatile lens, more suited to bright and sunny days, but can be used in overcast conditions as well.
Toniclonic -
Very nice. These are a great contrast lens they provides just enough contrast to allow them to be worn in all situations. They almost seem like a cross between Tungsten Iridium polarized and VR28. I just wish they would release more frames with this lens.
Mark -
Amazing lens. Have them in the titanium crosshairs and they make a great colourway combination. Abit easier on the eyes than my VR28 black iridium polarised (which in contrast applies a pinkish tint). I agree that they should offer this lens with more models across the range ... but it is a pricey lens and most people probably wouldn't opt for it in the cheaper frames.

For a polarized lens, they handle a good range of lighting conditions. They cut out glare on sunny days and on the snow ... but also give additional contrast on overcast days where I would normally wear my pink iridiums out ...

Very stylish and understated look to the titanium iridium finish. Looks good with jeans ... even better with a sharp suit.
Jon -
Wow. I thought these would be like the Titanium Iridium, but these are far better! The contrast is not as heavy, and it just makes everything look extremely sharp and amazing! This is definitely one of the best lenses out there next to the VR28 Black Iridium Polarized lenses.
LIEUTENANT -
Very good lens!Just wore them,all day long with my half jackets yesterday.There is a nice mild brown tint,soothing to the eyes inside,and extremely impressive and reflective titanium on the outside(and I really wonder why did they ever preferred the tungsten over this for the pit boss?).The contrast is not so intensive though,(last week I was wearing a crosshair with amber lenses,and I swear,there was more green on every image than I could handle,however,that doesn't happen with the titanium).And of course the polarization is once again unbelievable.Consider that the basic titanium iridium lens is even more reflective on the outside.anyway,this one is one great lens.5 out of 5 without hesitating for a second!!!!!!!
Ian -
Not bad. Just got a pair with these lenses. They're not as harsh as straight Bronze or Amber. Very nice contrast.
bong -
have this finish on my pair of Chop Top 6.0 RX frames. this colour finish was one of the main reasons why i picked up a pair of Chop Top 6.0, they look bold because they're a deep, dark black, but yet understated because they're matte. looks great especially foe those with a really dark hair colour.
Ed -
Very similar to the FMJ Gunmetal O-Matter frame color, but with a hint of brown. Goes especially well with the VR28 Blue Polarized lens that it is often paired with.
addicted2o -
i like this color very much...very metallic grey that goes well with most lens colors...
Lali -
The best frame color that came across so far, very unique. A must have and 5 stars.

Awesome bag! This bag has a lot of function but is still small enough to use anywhere. The sunglass compartment is very nice and I think it offers fairly good protection. There is also a little pocket for your mp3 player. This is an awesome bag and the design itself is very unique.
andy73au -
I bought this bag when I was on holiday in Queensland. As soon as I saw it in this little surf shop in Townsville I pounced. Has awesome functionality and heaps of room for your stuff. I especially like the compression molded google case at the front.Very cool bag....awesome!! I would rate this bag 4 stars BTW..
o-xide -
This bag is suped up version of the Pack Two. A little smaller with a lot more functions. Not only can one use this for MX but I would use it for Snowsports as well since you can store your goggles in the built in hard case and a Helmet holder. There is also a place for a Camelback and a hole for its straw. Just plain awesome bag. Very compact bag and has similarities to the KS pack and Pack Two.

Oakley's latest MTB pack has improved on his predecessor the 'MTB Pack' with useful features. Retaining the clever helmet stow and improving on it by replacing the webbing with a compression panel with straps which is both more convenient and aesthetically pleasing. Immediately underneath is a goggle compartment which could also house eyewear with folding earstocks. Ironically, it could not accomodate rigid eyewear like Pro M Frames and Racing Jackets which are popular with MTB riders. On either side are open pockets that could hold kneepads or water bottles. I personally use them to store Camelbak bottles. A flexible integrated mobile phone holder on each shoulder strap feels more secure but will not protect against rain or water splashes. Another new welcomed feature is an audio player compartment similar in appearance as the one Kitchen Sink Pack but smaller. It's enough to fit an iPod and headphone case. It has a cord pass-thru on top in which I use an iPod Radio Remote to control my player while riding. My remote clips on the shoulder strap making it easy to reach and operate. Internally there is a wealth of features not found in the previous pack including a mesh pocket for cash or keys or small tools, an ID pocket, a tire pump pocket with elastic cord retainer, an elastic strap provision for a spare tire - although I couldn't get one to fit, It holds a Surefire flashlight or a Multitool better. Also an elastic mesh pocket Oakley claims holds a PDA or GPS device. I don't know of any PDA that could fit there but a mobile or iPod fits snugly. And finally, Oakley retains the all important hydration sleeve which could fit a 3-liter bladder. The tube holes are now on each side which I believe is more ergonomic. Overall an exceptional pack for the trails. The compartment is big enough for a heavy jacket and packed foods but not too big that crates too much air drag and makes you less nimble. It's also a high-tech-looking everyday urban pack with it's big ominous metal icon logo gracing the top - a testament to it's form and functionality attributes.

Just a radical bag! I love wearing this bag around, it's comfortable and it looks super gnarley. The pouches for glasses/goggles and MP3 player are an awesome touch. Plenty of cool pockets and things that add storage. Zipper pulls even shout innovation. This bag is small but definatey brings plenty of things to the table.

Frame: FMJ Copper
Lens: Black Iridium
I bought these glasses used, but in excellent condition. They are sport glasses designed for activity and so the arms wrap snugly around one's head, even a small one like mine. However this can be uncomfortable if worn for extended periods of time. Even with the aerodynamically raked back lenses, the glasses are still designed for someone with a wide face (IF YOU'RE ASIAN, THESE ARE THE GLASSES FOR YOU.) They do allow for a noticeable window of light to get in through the sides. But they are just so cool, I could not give them any less than 3 of 5.

Lens: Black Iridium

I swapped my Zero's for a week to wear these. They fit very snuggly around a different portion of your head than you may be used to. The lenses allow for a wide range of vision and above all, they look pretty cool.

Update: The earstems broke, much like the early Eye Jackets. Will try to fix, but it doesn't look hopeful.

Update 2: I fixed it with a little help from a picture frame nail and some super glue. They're good as new now and I love them.

Wow! this is old school as well. When it first came out, my eyes was on it. Not only because of the color combo they out with but also how the earstem rises a bit. I think the newer M frame copied this from the TopCoat. Too bad it's discontinued as well
oogie -
Frame: FMJ
Lens: Black

I have 3 pairs of the Topcoats (Navy Exchange had a sale years back). I think the raked styling is pretty sweet. I agree that the lens shape and styling tend don't provide great coverage and light can sneak in from the sides. However, the curvature to the earstems are just too sweet. Almost a little retro in the overall look (think pointed glasses in the 60's), but sleek nontheless.

Frame: FMJ White
Lens: Black Iridium

Picked these up late '97, early '98. I was replacing a set of Eye Jackets that I thought I had lost. I still use these glasses every so often when I don't feel like using my M-frames. They always fit well, especially with a bike helmet. Pulled them out of retirement for an 80 mile weekend, and they are still great. The only complaint is the finish didn't hold up all that well, as I have heard many other FMJ finishes haven't. These are a classic Oakley Jacket style! Grab em if you can find them!

Frame: FMJ Copper
Lens: Black Iridium

Love the hornet's look these give - very aggressive and unique without resorting to the gaudy frame adornments of the newer models. Since these were made with the old formula O-matter, the earstems tend to break, and mine broke recently. I drilled into each side of the break about 3/16" and epoxied a stiff fence wire in there before joining the two pieces, in the same way one puts rebar in concrete. The fix has held up great and you can't even tell it broke.
LEX7 -
Frame:Corten
Lens:Gold Iridium

I mainly got these cos i needed them for my collection but i also like the corten colour frame,
these are a very weird shape they have big lenses and very thin ear stems which make them a very unique looking pair of oakleys that come in some special colours that were not widely spread through the oakley range.

Frame: FMJ Copper
Lens: Black
Always loved the style of these and all the colors were among the best Oakley has ever done and they were fairly unique to this style. Another great example of Oakley styling. I recently got a hold of a pair (god I love Ebay!!) and I love them. Although seeing them again reminded me of the problem Oakley used to have with the FMJ colors, in that are small clumps of the paint on a few spots on the frame. This used to be common on almost every pair of glasses with the FMJ colors.

I usually prefer non black frames unless its just for everyday purpose but Metallic black is my preference for this style. The black looks really good with the style. I like the angle of the orbitals and how they give the appearance of an alien. The frame is very light weight. Eye coverage is excellent. The orbitals are fairly big.

Frame: FMJ White Chrome
Lens: Black Iridium

My regular cycling glasses for quite some time. Light and comfortable, nice contours to the arms. Excellent shape for the slightly down-tilted angle of my head while on a road bike. Excellent peripheral space in the lens. For me, a little light did sneak through the lower quarter area (about 8 o'clock on the left, 4 o'clock on the right) but I got over it after 3 minutes. I have a FMJ Copper pair I've never worn but over the years I put more miles on my White Chrome Topcoats than any other O-Matter sunglasses. Sadly, leaving them in a blistering hot storage space for a summer left them with a cracked orbital and these beautiful shades are in retirement; I guess they're a a keepsake of the summers I used them. Five stars for the original sculpture and they were great glasses.

The Topcoat is a cool looking frame, but just does not make up for the weird look on the face. It is comfortable, but not nearly as it should be to be a product from oakley. The cost doesn't really break the bank.

Awesome. This is possibly the best model I've gotten since after they've become discontinued. Got them last friday! I can't take them off. The Topcoat lives up to its name. Light, fast looking, this was meant for windy days such as these. I like how the swoopy earstalks make them look very agressive with the high turned orbitals. I see what everyone is saying about having to be careful with them because the arms and the frame are slim. Sweet!

the Torpedo is not one of those watches one can wear everyday... it's just so unique looking. i get all sorts of comments when i wear it, ranging from "that's pretty weird looking thing on your wrist" to "that's an awesome looking watch!" the Yellow face looks great with the Stainless Steel Casing. the face itself is a very shallow oval shape, resulting in short watch hands, making it difficult to see the time around the 3 and 9 areas. also, a date readout is sorely missing. however, the Torpedo is a work of art and design, it's so unique no one else would have anything looking remotely close to it.

Definately an odd watch. It is very good quality, and has quite a bit of heft to it. The side of the watch does dig into my hand when my hand is at a right angle, which is painful after time. The hands can be hard to see. Also, the hands are not luminous, so you cannot see them at night. Overall, I rate this watch a 3/5. Good concept, mid-grade execution.

Yellow face,....Out of my 5 oakley watches i wear this one the least,its a kind of casual hanging about t shirt watch if you get my drift,i love the concave saphire glass, yes the face is a bit small though the watch itself is quite big....still wouldnt be without it!

This one gets a 4 for sentimental reasons, otherwise it would be a 3. I wanted one ever since they were released (alongside Bullet and Crush), and got the best colour IMO, yellow.

An amazing design sells this piece. The drawbacks are the absence of a date window and a second hand, though the design may not lend itself easily to either. It just looks crazy.

This watch is heavy, by the way and feels substantial. It's not hard to read, I thought it might have been. Also, the ends don't poke me, your experience may be different.

Frame: Stainless Steel

I've wanted one of these for so long and when I saw one at the Vault for $150, I jumped on it. My wife even helped chip in. There's little else besides a minute and hour hand, but being used to the Time Bomb, I didn't expect as much. The design is simply awesome and a remnant of the unobtainium strap days. I don't have the reported problem of being poked by the end, so it fits nice and comfortable. Highly recommended.

Yellow Face

Truly radical design that looks super cool with casual wear. Swiss Made (assembled in Switzerland), unlike the Crush, which only has Japan Movement. The ends don't poke my wrists much. Design-wise gets a 5 from me, but because there's no second-hand, the "usual" 2-sec jump low-battery indicator is not available. So, might make you miss an appointment should the battery die at the "wrong" appointed time.

Frame: Stainless/Stainless

Wow, I had never even heard of this until I was trolling eBay for anything and everything Oakley. You can find some cool stuff that way. Anyway, holy crap awesome! It's so unique that the only way I'd be able to find the proper words to describe how stoked I am for it, would be to sit down with a thesaurus for a good long time. I plan on wearing it frequently, and I have a hunch I'm going to get a lot of comments about it. It's definitely worth picking up, if you find one.

One of the best features is the way the band is made. There are ridges under the face/frame, and holes cut into the underside of the band. These prevent the watch from slipping around your wrist. This is one of those things that's neither a deal maker or breaker, but I wish this feature was on every watch that I own...

I'll never be a fan of the tortoise shell pattern since it seems that everyone under the sun has churned out something like this over the years. That said, I hooked a colleague up with this frame scheme on a Five 3.0 and they looked very classy and sophisticated. I'd probably never buy it, but if you are partial to a tortoise design, this one should suffice.
american image -
tortoise is for the old people and females. boring colour , very very normal
Dann -
I have this on my Moons. It took me years until I touched a tortoise frame, because I thought they looked very tacky. However upon seeing it in person, it's not too bad. It's an amber marble pattern, that you really have to see in person.

I have this on the eye jackets and it is an amazing frame colour, its another one of the animal prints that i love. it came in quite a few different frames back in the day but i think it looks best on the eye jackets and moons.
looks great in the sun because it goes almost see through.
a great pattern with nice rich browns.

I'm not a fan of animal patterns but my friend has a pair of fives with this color and at least on her, they look great. It's goes well with her skin tone but also, they seem to look better in reali life than in photos.

A very nice contrast lens. The prizm technology is great in bringing out details. I have not used them for shooting but on sunny days they bring out details that make them nice to wear every day.

Lens: 1.67 high index

It was time to get some new prescription frames and lenses and while shopping at my local Oakley factory store, I came across these and fell in love with them on the spot. They are super light and look great. It has a unique stem system that keeps in snug and comfy on your head. Everyone thinks it looks great and I don't mind wearing them out to social functions. Try on all of the colors to make sure it matches your face. I originally thought pewter would look best on me, but polished black came out as the winner.

Frame: Pearl
Lens: Black Iridium
I've wanted a vintage pair of Oakley's for a while and after contemplating buying off a vintage website, I found these on half.com and quickly picked them up. They are huge and look a bit silly, but that's half the fun really. They also came with an older style grey bag, which I haven't seen. The lens covers pretty much your entire frame of view, so no light leaks in. I'd recommend these if you can find them, but if not, get a pair of Monster Doggles. They're pretty much the same thing.
Jah-9's -
Frame: Pearl

These are clearly designed for athletes - you can see everything, no frame in the way, no light leak. Also very aerodynamic. But they look ridiculous on anyone, so I'd consider wearing them for a big bike race but that's about it. And they have M-Frames for that.
kingphilbert -
Frame: Blood
Lens: Black

A large frame with a rigid fit. Very much a predecessor to the Monster Dog and Doggle. One thing to watch for, easy breakage. They were never revamped like the Eye Jackets with the metal "O" inset. The first Eye Jacket's ear stems broke at the ear sock often. Trenchcoats broke in the lower frame orbital just as often. For those whom the Eye Jacket is too small.

Frame:Snow Jungle & Camouflage
Lens:Black Iridium & Gold Iridium

Obviously I like these glasses as I have six pairs at the moment and im hoping to have all 8 one day.
They are very weird looking, and quite big.
I think they are the size inbetween the monster dog and the monster doggle.
They come in some of the best colours oakley have ever made
I love both the camo frames, but for some reason oakley have only replicated these colours in goggle form. Great frame for skiing cos you have total eye coverage with this big lense and When you wear the camo frames on the slopes you look totally badass.

Frame: Blood
Lens: Black Iridium
I can't say enough about Trenchcoats...they were my first pair of Oakley's. I bought them in 1995 and still have them. They have been through alot sent in for repair a couple times, and now are not used, they are on the shelf in their original 1995 vault for safe keeping!

A quick story about my first experience with Oakley's customer service regarding these frames. It was less than a week before my wedding and I accidentally broke the frame as I caught one of the open stems on a door frame and snapped it's hinge area. I called customer service in a panic because I wanted to take them with me on our honeymoon. I talked with the first rep, he passed me onto the manager after explaining my situation. The manager told me to overnite the glasses to them, they would fix or replace anything needed to bring them back to original condition and then they would overnite the glasses back to me. After telling him my story, he actually said "We definitely want you wearing your favorite Oakleys on your honeymoon!". I was so impressed with their support, repair, and turnaround. I shipped them out overnite, tracked it..they fixed them that day and shipped them back out that nite, and I had them the next morning! I can't say enough for their customer service and my experiences every time I've had an issue (not often).

Unfortunately, as other have said this frame is a more fragile design and I decided after the parts were not available to fix them anymore to put them on the shelf for display only.

I bought a pair of straightjackets in a very close color to my Blood red trenchcoats to use in place of them. Of course that was many pairs of glasses ago! ;)

These are my favorite Oakleys ever. Clean and streamlined design, nice and big. A lot of other Oakleys are too small on my face and these were far superior. They were so good.

I bought these to partially satiate my desire for the Trenchcoats in Pearl. Blood is a really unique color, very true to it's name. It is the very same color as your blood in an IV tube. These glasses help me to relive my "glory days" in of being an Oakley fan, where I would have to save up for months to afford a pair with my cheap summer jobs in High School. They are huge and and retro. These are to Eye Jackets what Eye Patches are to Canteens.

Loved them, had them for years and years till two years after ownership, the frame snapped by the eyebrow (thinnest piece). I had Oakley swap them out for a new pair, and they lasted me for another few years, till this time they said they did not have the mold anymore and would not replace/repair. Sad to say I wish I could have kept them, the lenses were awesome, but the frame "o-matter" seriously had issues with longevity.

These were my first pair of oakleys back in 1995. I saved for 3 months to buy them!! Bought from Mayhem surf shop in York. I loved them then, and love them now. I agree with a lot of the above, they do feel "Brittle" to wear, but, call me over carefull, I wear them with great care, and only for looking good in :) and mine still look good as new, no breakage. One of the best product Oakley ever made,, by far! and as Ian said above, I live the glory days in them!!

This is not my favorite frame but still amazing.I received today three new Trenchcoats to my collection.
Big frame but my used Blood are more confortable i think by beeing used, the three new frames are tighter and more closed frames.
The downside is that they are not more on store and Oakley dont sell lens or earspads to then making then more collectibles than usables.
Still an amazing frame specially for big heads.

I gave this to my Dad for Christmas, but I snuck a wear before wrapping it up. It works very well for both a warm winter jacket or a slightly breezy fall afternoon.

VERY happy with these Tron Pit Boss glasses! These were a gift from my family since I love Oakleys and I'm a huge fan of Tron. I wound up replacing the lenses with blue mirrored prescription lenses which nicely match up with the blue accents on the frames. I got the backpack separately a couple of years after getting the sunglasses. The blue Tron accents on the backpack look great! Definitely my favorite pair of sunglasses ever!

I showed these to my wife, and they literally swallowed her head when she put them on. These are the largest glasses I have ever seen. They are larger than Trenchcoats, larger than the Eye Patch, larger than even the Monster Doggle. Look on these glasses and despair...
TERRORISM -
It seems somewhat ironic that frame colors are named "true", since basically the premise is that all other hues of that particular color have been altered in some way. Nonetheless, True Blue lives up to its name and delivers a quality chroma that matches exceptionally well with a number of lens options including Fire, Ice, or even G26. Bottom line: if you like blue, you'll love True Blue.


TERRORISM -
It's almost ironic that Oakley recently released the True Carbon Fiber frame colorway since the Elite series (with "real" carbon fiber frames) will tentatively be making their debut shortly. Nonetheless, this frame departs from the normal Carbon Fiber pattern and provides an interesting (and superior) alternative. Unfortunately, the frame still appears to be somewhat "pixelated" when viewed close-up. A great concept with slightly flawed application.

Frame: Tumbler 2.0 Olive/Tortoise
Lens: RX Clear
Just got my Tumblers a few days ago and I love them. Am getting many comments (where I got them, ect..) already.At first they felt a bit heavier on the nose bridge, but just took some getting used to. Only regret is not inquiring as to if they were available with Transition lenses. Construction looks solid, I'm hoping the side Icons do not detatch like one did on my Polarized Gold Iridium Flak Jacket(email from Oakley rep said to send them in, but I hate to part with them for even a short period of time). Icon etched on the lens glass is a nice touch.
Darren -
Frame: Tumbler 2.0 Olive/Tortoise
Lens:RX Transitions
Update...had my dealer order in the Transitions lenses..much improved all around usage, only find that they will only darken with true exposure to bright sunlight, not indirect exposure. ie driving in a vehicle where your lenses are shaded by the roof of the vehicle,the darkening effect is much more subtle.

Frame: Tumber Black Plaid
Lens: RX Transitions
This was my second pair of rx oakleys and I was not shore I wanted them because they are very metro sexual. Put I was talk into them because my eyes are blue. I like them alot but a hated the transition lenses because the work on UV light so if it was cloudy at noon the would get dark. Then in the morning when the sun comes up they would not work at all. In the car your windshield is UV protected they would not work. Go Clear! Also when I was wearing them someone called me Drew Carey so the first chance I got I bought a pair of halftracks. The only other thing that was tuff was when you sweat and bent over they would slip off with ease. Outside of that get looking frame and wear made to last.

The difference between Tungsten Iridium and Titanium Iridium is very small in my opinion. The basetint is the same, just the Iridium should be different, but I can't see the difference.
Nontheless they are very versatile in low light conditions as strong light conditions, plus the name sounds very nice...
Raymond Karlsson -
I have this colour in a pair of Half Jacket XLJ (polarized) lenses that came with a frame that I really wanted. Bought the combo but replaced the lenses with a pair of VR 28 Black Iridium.
I think Tungsten kind of falls in between. It's fairly dark, even if it gives some contrast, and the colour is a mix of brown, green and yellow/gold. I recommend VR28 or VR28 Bl.Ir.
Mike -
Having used it much more extensively now, Im actually not digging the bronze base. It does its job of subduing the bright conditions but even on not so hot days, where the weather is just nice, it makes the world seem rather gloomy as it gives a 'dusk' effect.

The redeeming factor though is that this colour is quite useful when its raining as the contrast helps me to see clearer. This benefit is minimal in very heavy downpour with very dark clouds though.
TERRORISM -
Despite the lack of color, Tungsten Iridium provides an excellent lens that's easy on the eyes and is very versatile. After having an opportunity to give these lenses a "test run" in the new Half X, I must say that I was more than impressed with their ability to be worn in overcast conditions, yet provide great protection even during periods of bright sunglight. Perhaps I'm being a bit harsh, but due to their "standard" colorway they're only receiving a 4-skull rating.
aman -
Yes it is, but it doesn't have as much "flash" as black,ice, or titanium iridium. It seems that as long as the frames are not a translucent color they are mirrored enough.
TimC -

Just got this lens today as I'm writting this in my new Oakley Half X in plasma with Tungsten Iridium. These are sweet shades! This however is a review on the lens so i'll concentrate on that! This Tungsten Iridium has really impressed me being such a big Oakley collector , so I know just about all the lenses. This is better on my eyes than Titanium Iridium and even VR28 Black but it is simliar to VR28 Black actually very much the same feel. The VR28 black is another great lens! This new Tungsten Iridium to me it feels softer on my eyes (not so rich of a bronze base like titanium.) and thats a good thing! I can even wear them even out in the full Western Australian sun ok (which does get very bright over here)! However I will use my Carbon Black Iridium Romeo 2's for that purpose , and save these for Golf. A sweet lens and the only overcast lens that really suits me! Giving me allowance to even wear them in full Sun without undue Iritation from contrast!
john -
i am a big fan of the bronze color tint. so these work perfectly for me.popped them into my juliets in exchange for emerald iri's.
i like the color as i am 41 and the tungsten iridium is a little more subtle than some the "look at me colors". plus i got these for the hazy days of winter!
Lee -
Got these in my first pair of Oakleys today, Tightrope in Carbon frame with TI lens. Very happy with them. Good vision in very bright conditions today. Dark enough to hide your eyes but lens colour when worn is not quite as brown as some images show on the web. I might have been better with the polarized bronze lens but I thought that would have been too light a lens colour and my eyes would show. Good choice anyway.
Louise -
I searhecd a bunch of sites and this was the best.
Koyote -
Got these in some Pit Bulls. Didn't like the frames, so returned 'em. But did try the lenses outside. Hence this review is based on a very cursory experience with the lenses.

The polarization cuts glare effectively and creates very nice color saturation and contrast. The 15% VLT makes these lenses a very good choice for an all-rounder, usable in very bright light and optimal in moderately bright light and overcast conditions. The contrast-enhancing tint will really help in the less-than-blinding conditions, keeping things vivid.

If they put these lenses in the Straight Jackets, I will most likely buy 'em!
Krzyshng -
I've had a pair in my Radar Range shape for the last 2 years. My favorite all around lens so far. Really enjoying the bronze shade, not as crazy yellow as the titanium iridium and not as dark as the gold iridium polarized. Enhances contrast well and works well in the Arizona desert from medium to extremely bright days.
thisguy -
Great lens to look through. Once you adjust to the color, which is a brown tint, they are pleasing to wear. I like the contrast that is provided. The iridium coating gives a nice shine on the outside although I find it hard to color coordinate with brown colors. Great lens to own though.
Jay Ho -
These lenses are a great all around tint. I really like these because they are so similar to my ti irid polarized. Pretty much same tint, maybe a touch lighter. Fine for indoor wear but I kinda have a problem with people who wear sunglasses indoors or at night. Great driving lens color but I have them on the Nano 2.0 so the coverage is a bit small to use for my convertible. On my Nanowire, they have that lens treatment which is a great bonus. That's the best thing to happen to Oak lenses so far, period. Now if they can only find a way to make their lense scratch-proof...
Raymond Karlsson -
This one came on a pair of polished aluminium Half Jackets that I wanted so badly. Sort of in between VR28 Black Iridium and real Black Iridium to me. Cool, dark shades with an extra plus for the polarization. A bit too dark for mixed conditions but good when the sun comes out or makes reflexes from a wet road.
TERRORISM -
Like its counterpart (Tungsten Iridium), Tungsten Iridium Polarized provides excellent protection for bright conditions, yet is versatile enough to wear during overcast days as well. Polarization reduces blinding glare and makes this lens even more superior.

Sunny Day -
I got these with my custom Flak Jackets. I should have done better research before buying. I live, work, and play in extremely bright conditions and was looking for the darkest lenses possible. I should have gotten the B.I.P. But, for what they are....the polarization does offer glare reduction but the bronze/yellow tint fools my eyes and makes it actually feel brighter. The contrast is very sharp, which is nice.These are good everyday lenses for changing conditions but I will definitely purchase the B.I.P. for outdoor, sunny, summer conditions.
Edward W -
I got my Ice Pick w/ this Tungsten Iridium Polarized. Very helpful for driving on highways on a sunny days, or even while driving in heavy rain or foggy road, it helps me see cars in front of me.
The polarization blocks blinding glare, but the lens still not too dark to use on cloudy days.
Definitely superior lens.
Wookieman -
A good polarized, contrast lens. Slightly darker than gold iridium and more brown. Great for full sun.
dawn to dusk - all weather -
After a few months i continue to be amazed by these. Yesterday, overcast, hazy late afternoon, i tested these with/without while walking on a sidewalk. there were some red and yellow flowers and they were much clearer and brighter, each leaf edge was more defined with these on. So my new condition range for these is dawn to dusk, all weather.

i also notice this in sunny late afternoon, all the light pollution from the reflected glass off the buildings and cars makes things look cloudy, or straining to the eyes without polarized lenses. these Tungsten Iridium Polarized in a Radar Pitch are my fav to wear now, out of gold iridium, ice iridium, fire iridium, 24K iridium which are all sitting on a shelf.
slackman -
I bought these in a pair of Oil Rigs after at a fishing show Kevin Vandam (Pro Bass Fishermen) told me that these work great for in land fishing. They do work good for fishing as long as it is not overcast. The tint is similar to Amber Black Iridium Polarized, only instead of the yellow tint it seems more brown and the contrast is not as harsh. I also noticed that in the store it appears that there is not much of a Iridium coating on them, but once you get them in the sun it is extremely apparent. My only complaint is that there is really no Oakley store that keeps these lenses in stock. They are available in almost every frame, but none of the Oakley stores I called or went to had them at all. So they had to be ordered. Overall a great fishing lens for bright days.
Ian -
Holy crap. My first experience with Tungsten Iridium Polarized was on my Pit Boss. This comes extremely close to my all-time favorite, Black Iridium Polarized. It has all the contrast and low-light vision of Bronze, but still manages to block light and glare like Black Iridium. Truly an amazing lens.
Toniclonic -
I love wearing these lenses on the beach or for fishing because the polarization and high contrast makes seeing into the water rather effortless. I just hate driving in them. They almost seem to mess with my color perception. They make certain colors like blue or turquoise stand out more. While making the color red less vivid.
Celicagame -
After the juliets changed over to hydrophic I wad looking for a polarized lens that would look good in a x-metal frame. It came down to tungsten and vr28. I went with the tungsten because I wanted to try something new and they looked reall good in the fuente antix. I wasn't disappointed. Great contrast and dark enough for Florida days. I hop they make this available in more models
Mattes -
A great lens, my absolute favorite. Besides looking fantastic in Jet Black Flak Jackets, this lens is wearable from very bright light to low light conditions. Excellent for driving on clouded days where the sun comes through every now and then but at the same time a solid choice on hot summer days. If I could only carry one pair of glasses with me for a given period, it would be this.
maxg -
What a great lens!

One of the best Oakley lens tint I have ever encountered.

The base tint is actually quite similar to that of the Shallow Blue Polarized lenses, but the light transmission of the Tungsten Iridium Polarized lenses is a bit lower (15%) and thus they are a bit more versatile to use, from very bright light to overcast.

IMHO they offer more contrast and depth perception than the VR28 Black Iridium Polarized, but they distort the colour quite a bit more and are not as soothing to the eye than the VR28 or G40 tints.

Definitely recommended.
My 2nd favorite after the OO Black Iridium Polarized.
thisguy -
Great lens to own. The brown base provides a nice contrast tint when looking though. The added polarization is great if needed or preffered. The iridium gives a nice reflective coating on the outside. The only problem is that I find it hard to color coordinate with brown.
Ian -
Black Ink/Sapphire
I love this frame. The fit, shape, and size is similar to that of the original Eye Patch. It has rubber on the nosepads and on the earstems, which addresses my only issues with the Eye Patch. It has interchangeable icons like the Dispatch II, in fact they use the same size icons, so any "old" ones will work with the Turbine. The earstem is very narrow, which makes this frame very compatible with wearing a hat. The earstem rubber is a single piece that is inserted into the earstem, and it protrudes just enough on both the inside and outside of the stem, holding the frame both to your head and ear. The rubber has the B1-B circle pattern molded into it, and it is very subtle.

The sapphire lens has a VR-type base, which may be a version of Prizm. Coupled with a light-blue iridium coating, this lens is a very wearable daily lens, with very bright light being its only weakness.

This frame has become one that I wear more often than I originally expected, and I'm positive that I'll acquire other colorways to complement differing conditions.

Black Ink Sapphire Iridium, Grey Ink Ruby Iridium Polarized, Matte Black Grey Polarized

My dad and I both have large faces. Dad especially. We both love these frames. They have excellent large eye coverage and stay up really well. My only issue is that the corners of the nose bridge allow light in between my nose and the frame. I am used to it now. I have 3 colors and dad has 2 pairs of 1 color. We like the fact that we both can wear the same frame in different colors and not look like we are trying to wear the same sunglasses. They all look unique and different. I can't wait until Oakley releases icons and rubber inserts for the stems for sale. Thank you for a great fitting fashion sunglass that can be worn for work in my orchard too.

A four hundred dollar golf shoe! 8^O A stunningly gorgeous shoe to be sure but not for a $10 game like mine.

Outstanding! My Cinderella shoe sits on a cube display case on its own. That's how good it is. Get the MERLOT!

I love my Tuxedos! They are just about the coolest dress shoes I have EVER seen and I absolutely love to wear them on formal occasions. The wide base is very sturdy not to mention very hardcore. I would recommend these to anyone, as long as they can still find a pair somewhere...and preferably on sale.

Doesn't look too different from the previous Twenty's but it certainly feels much better on the face. Fit is snug and hugs close to my face very well and is something I look for in Oakleys. Frame and lens combination along with the icons looks great. Nothing really special about these just an upgrade from the previous versions and looks like classic Oakley.

Only disappointment is the lenses seem to scratch easily. I have only worn the sunglasses in my car during long drives and outside for only a short time and have only cleaned with the microfiber bag but you can see a few small dots and what looks like swirl marks where I was cleaning with the bag itself. Pretty weird.

These glasses are great! I have 15 pairs of Oakleys now and there are one of my favorites. I was worried because my head is a decent size and the site said they were meant for smaller heads but they actually fit me great! They are the most comfortable pair I have and are extremely light! I am a loyal Oakley fan and will continue to be one!

These are some of the best fitting and most comfortable shoes I have every worn. Right out of the box, all day. They are as lightweight as my running shoes. I also think they are an awesome design. They catch everyones eyes.

Surprisingly comfortable. Fits a little small though. The leather material is just amazing.
Downside: the leather is so soft that it wrinkles pretty much as soon as it is bent. Scratches easily too.
Still worth it.

I got these from overstock.com, they were the last size twelve available in any color so I had to get them. I have to say these shoes are awesome! They look great with the leather outer and the metal icons, and they are extremely comfortable. Although they look very similar to the Coil Over, I would have to rate these a step above, or an improvement to the Coil Over. Very nice shoes.

Killer shoe. I love these but don't get much use out of them being brown and most of my wardrobe consists of black O shirts. Really nice looking though with a pair of jeans and a nice shirt though. Super sweet design, light-weight, and comfortable these shoes are def one of my favorites.

These have to be the best shoes ever made, I've had a pair for the past 12 years and they are finally starting to wear out. So when I saw a new pair on eBay that just happened to be my size, I was willing to pay top dollar for them..
They are light and very comfortable and look good as well....

My very first pair of Oakley shoes. Got them due to a brand name and wanted to see how they go. Got them back in 2003 and still have them, can still wear them. Really great for a night out on the town.

I was a little disappointed with this shoe the leather and build qaulity it good but they fail to inspire in the khaki colour.

This style with the ergonomically shaped sole makes them look and feel more of a golf shoe rather than an agressive looking trainer which i personally would prefer and although comfortable they just lack the spark of something unique that other oakley shoes can show they have.

Frame: Brown Sugar
Lens: VR50-Brown Gradient

The brown sugar frame is very nice, its like a bronze that has gold, green, and red speckles in it. Usually im not a big fan of gradient lenses, but the brown frame plus the vr50 brown gradient turned out to be a very nice combo. Usually the gradients are too durastic and im constantly being distracted by thje color change, but this one is pretty nice, its not too dark. I could never see myself wearing anything with VR50. But i found it actually a pleasant lens to wear. Great for Indoors and low sunlight/overcast days.

Frame: Polished Black
Lens: Warm Grey
These are a very classic style. They almost reminds me of an edgier version of the original Frogskins. Overall, I've been very happy with them. The side coverage isn't all too great, but then again, they're not meant to be a rap-around pair...just pure style.

I had a pair of these in Creme/Bronze and I hated them. However, the fit and style was good enough for me to go back and buy the black only days after I sold the creme pair.

Ryan Sheckler Sig. These glasses look really small when they are displayed, but when you try them on they have such a different fit. very comfortable and lightweight..... And a classy style to them...

Frame: Polished Black
Lens: Warm Grey

These were for sale online for only $53, so I had to pick them up. I like the polished black/warm grey combo, it's one of those classic looks that goes with anything. The warm grey is good for really bright sun. These frames do look kind of small by themselves, but I find that when I put them on I like the look a lot and they seem proportional, even though I have a medium/medium-large face. Overall, a nice pair of shades especially for being some of the most inexpensive of the oakley line.

Just got these used from an ebay seller. With shipping it came to $45. I had a pair of gascans but over time I decided that they weren't really for me...These, however, I loved at first sight. There's a lot of style packed into this little frame. I wanna get another pair in a different color now- or maybe the bigger "Eye-Patch" model would be cool...

Frame: Polished Rootbeer
Lens: Bronze Polarized

These are good shades for Oakley's lower priced lines. They look a lot like the Gascan from the front, but the earstems are right off the Eyepatch. The lenses offer great side coverage, while the earstems are long enough to grab your head nicely. These feel sturdier than some other pairs I have tried. After a while, the earstems can start to be uncomfortable, but that is inherent with non-sport shades. I give these 3 skulls because there is nothing really new with these shades, nothing that really jumps out about them and makes you way "wow".

Frame: Cream
Lens: Bronze

I've been looking for a Stretchline model that fits me well for quite some time now. Finally coming across the Twitch and seeing it in real life made me instantly buy it. The look of the non-iridium lens combined with the gold stretch logo makes it very classy. In the beginning I wasn't really satisfied with the Cream frame option, but I'm getting used of it.

For me, these shades fit PERFECT! I can wear them all day and never know that they are on my head. They look really cool also. IMO, the stretchline makes it look a whole better than the square O.

I bought the Sheckler just to complete my small Stretchline Collection (one piece of each model) and I was not that impressed. The shape is really nice when it's sitting in the vitrine, but I thought it looks ridiculous on me. Half a year later I wore them just for fun and took some pics... and they looked awesome. Now I have 4 Twitches and I think I'll also get the remaining 2. They are
-light
-have a very good coverage despite the low curve
-nice Combos (2 text ones!)
but the main attraction is how they look. Kind of Old School... but still very fresh. For me beside the Montefrio THE unique model Oakley made in the last 2 years.

Frame: Brown Smoke
Lens: Dark Bronze

In the past buying your Oakleys without trying them on first wasn't much of a problem as long as you knew the overall fit of their styles. In the recent year that adage has gone out the window with the radical style change o-matter frames have undergone. So when I did this with the new stretchline piece, Twitch, I was pleasantly surprised to get a pair of glasses that fit so well and comfortably.

Larger than the new Five 3.0 and a superb head-on mimic for the Gascan, the Twitch comes across as the smoothest embodiement of and the proper mid ground for Os new edgier stylings. Square lenes are the new welcome change and with a lower base curve one shouldn't worry about the orbitlas hitting their cheek bones or being too tight on the temples.

Though the stems may look short upon initial view they are the perfect length for medium heads and bring back just the proper amount of curve one would expect as the stem comes to an end. Even with the simpler look of the entire frame the sculpting of the earstems are very reminiscent of the classic Frogskin and so artfully doen that each segment seems to flow from hinge to stems end.

These look great. Very retro looking and the dark combo looks simple and smart. they are a little rigid but comfortable even with a big head. the only reason i didnt buy these straight away was cos i was buying a black/black oildrum at the same time.
these will definately be the twitchs i choose when i do get a pair.
LEX7 -
Frame:Cream
Lens:Bronze

my second choice for the twitchs. Sadly this isnt a matte cream like the original EJ version its more polished which isnt as nice. but the cream and the bronze of the lens work well together but its hard to pull off a white or cream frame unless your rocking a tan.

Frame: Polished Black
Lens: Grey Polarized

Okay, I work for an O-Store. I bought the polished black and my co-worker bought the grape with grey polar. I must say that although I not like how light the grey is, the glass itself is very impressive! It feels about eleventy billion times better (read: sturdy and better quality) then Five 3.0s!!! Also in the works is a pair of White Twitch with the OAKLEY on the arm in GREEN
oogie -
Frame: Grape
Lens: Grey Pol.
As for the frame itself, I think it's one of those that doesn't immediately appeal to most due to it's flat base curve and boxy lens style. But I'm going to say that it will grow on most folks. I felt very Men In Black when I first tried on a pair. Great fit, somewhere between Five 3.0 and Gascan.

The Grape script frame was a bit of a disappointment. Love the grape, love the idea of the script ... but the script is such a fine and subdue detail that no one would ever notice unless you told them about it or showed someone with direct sunlight passing through the frame.

Frame: Polished Black
Lens: Black-Grey Gradient
This is an absolutely awesome new release from Oakley. It is simple in design but it has a very unique look and feel to it. The square shape of them gives them a funky edginess. The Ryan Sheckler edition comes with a very cool box and the Oakley text frame is amazing. You can see a little of the text coming through around the edge of the orbitals. Very cool. I also like the small embossed icons on the very end of the earstems. For a moderately priced model, the Twitch has been given quite a few unique details and I am a huge fan. It totally outshines Shaun White's Montefrio imho. I wonder how much input Ryan Sheckler actually had in this project. Whatever the case, I think this pair is a great addition to any collection or a great everyday pair.

Frame: Grape - Oakley Text
Lens: Grey Polarized
The text pattern on the frame is quite subtle on this one, but that is kind of appealing. When I showed it to a few friends they were very impressed. Just proves that less is sometimes more. Overall a very nice pair of shades and you can't complain about the price considering the polarized lenses. The fit great and they don't break the bank. I'm not too excited about grey as a base tint however.
x-metalman -
Frame: Polished Black
Lens: Warm Grey

I'll have to agree with Phil's review on these. The low base curve ensures better fit for a wider range of head sizes and the earstems are just right and have incredible styling. The styling seems somewhat retro, kind of a throwback to the original Frogskin with modern accents. The Warm Grey lens is different than what you'd expect for a Grey lens. It has almost a rose/bronze base and does exactly what the name implies, it "warms" colors up. I don't find it especially good in extremely bright light, but for low/medium lighting it works quite well. And it's the only grey lens that increases contrast. That and these glasses are Stretchline, so go get 'em!
warwagon -
Frame: Polished Black
Lens: warm grey
I was not really taking to much notice of these. They came to my attention from reading these reviews. So I hunted them down to try them on and walked out the store with them. I find the fit very comfortable, not putting presure on any one point. The styling is in following of the newer lines Oakley has been making, but it kinda reminds me of the Buddy Holly style glasses. Having the stretch logo suits it better than the icon, and the warm grey lens is really nice, I hope they do more warm grey instead of just grey.
Is it a pair worth buying. 100%

First off, this is a really nice version of the Twitch. The Oakley Text on the back of these is a really nice, unique detail. The style in itself is pretty mainstream. The gradient lens adds to the style and stands out. The fit on these on me are ok. They aren't as good as the eyepatch because my head is big, but surprisingly, these fit good. The frame is very lightweight and eye coverage is excellent.

These are probably Oakley's attempt to attract the budget customer. They're not very flashy but they're sturdy, comfortable, and very functional. Visually, the only thing that stands out are the earstems, and they bear a strong head-on resemblance to Gascans.

Frame: Grape - Oakley Text
Lens: Grey Polarized

I'm a huge fan of the Oakley Text frames and when I saw they made one in the Twitch with Grape/Text, I had to get it. The Grape text is really nice. You really can't see the text unless light goes through it though but it adds a real nice surprise in the light. I wish it would be possible to be able to see the text more. I'm not a big fan of the polarized but these are ok. The frame is very nice and light weight. I think it might be a better fit on smaller to medium size heads. Still, the fit is decent with my big head.

the twitch is to me what the frogskin was in the Mumbo era , just a cool looking sunglass, that fits very comfortable, big plus is the stretch icon logo, which seperate this one from the CANTEEN who is more mainstream. the feel and fit is near perfect, and this one is also very suitable for women. the frame and lenscolour i chose makes it wear you long after most of the sun has gone. all in all ; just cool and stylish
LEX7 -
Frame:Polished Black - Oakley Text
Lens:Black-Grey Gradient

I really wanted a pair of twitches and in my eyes this was the only option as the grape text did not look different enough form the gasan grape.

These are amazing, the text on the inside is very obvious as it is black text over a grey base so it really stands out. The box that is comes with is very cool and its always great to get a new lens. most of the new combos are coming with the same group of lenses so to have a gradient option is very cool.
The only thing wrong with these is the fit is a little smaller than id like, size wise they are close to the 5.3 but are a tighter fit.
vindicator -
Frame: Brown Smoke
Lens: Dark Bronze

These glasses with the stretchline logo are extremely rare here in Manila. I got them for my girlfriend at a really good price from eBay.They fit asian faces well. The over-all look is great, with an understated class. The frame fits almost any outfit well, and the Dark Bronze lenses offer good protection in the light to brightest environments. I gave it 4 stars out of 5 since the frame's retro style may not appeal to other face shapes.
Matt SG -
Frame: Grape Text
Lens: Grey (Polarized)

These shades are cool. Very retro, just imagine putting on your parents' old skool sunglasses, but not overtly old looking that it's unusable. Fits Asian faces well. Cut hinges are interesting, and this is my only stretchline pair. The text is basically impossible to see unless you're out in the blazing sun. My major complaint is that it's stems are too short, making propping it on my head (as I do for all my Oaks when not in use) very precarious. With little grip there, they could fall off at any moment with a sudden head movement.

Frame: Polished Black/Grey Text

I'm fairly indifferent to this model. I bought them because they were part of the Stretchline series. They're cool, just not my style.

Frame: Polished Black
Lens: Warm Grey

WOW! These are great! I don't know why they didn't keep these going. Number one, they're lightweight. 2, they are VERY comfortable, and 3, they fit my Asian Face! The Warm Grey is awesome! I did a review on those, but I think I was misled and mixed them up with the regular grey. Coverage is awesome, and the fit is nearly perfect. Seems like a smaller Eyepatch 1.0. Great buy if you can find one!

*I would recommend that IF you buy from eBay, make sure they are 100% reputable. I bought a pair because they're nearly impossible to find, and "minor scratches" and "no noticeable issue", well the whole entire exterior surrounding on the lens was peeling. This is really upsetting because I really enjoy the warm grey. Oh well. His name is: paul4409

Got a grey pair not listed here. They look great as, soft of the feet, good grip. Only down fall, tongue isn't long enough so goes into shoe also not great to wear without socks, cause blisters on top of shoe lace.

I own four different colorways.
These are really nice! They are a bit mainstream, but in an O-way.
They are nearly too narrow for me, but i can still use them without pain on my temples. Good job, Oakley!
The Game -
Frame: Steel
Lens: Grey

The steel frame comes with the standard grey not dark grey as listed, although dark grey would've been a better choice. This is a clean looking model with clean lines. The weight of the frame is amazing and the fit is dead on for me. The aluminum half of the frame gives it a subtle two tone look. I am looking to more color ways of this model because I feel the initial run is rather dull.
