Think first before buying an Oakley watch
By Mike Seifert
If you're looking for an Oakley watch stop right here find another time peace . My watch continually falls apart and because it was a gift from my prior job I don't have the sales receipt and Oakley wants to charge me over $600 to fix it. For the money there are many more timepieces out there that provide better quality and functionality
Oakley Holeshot...Nicely surprised!!
By Scott B.
I purchased my watch online nearly a year ago from a well known higher end department store as a close-out with a rather sizeable discount off the retail price. It was not the Limited Edition as noted above, but it was a Holeshot none the less, so this should be a good representation of what you might get with this Limited Edition.
I was hesitant because I had not seen the watch in person so I was not able to get a feel for the general quality of the watch. I rarely would spend this kind of money (even deeply discounted as it was) for a watch, but the initial reviews that I read were good enough that I decided to take a chance. With free shipping and returns I essentially had nothing to lose.
I was pleasantly surprised by it's first appearance out of the box. I got the black face with yellow inner dials and yellow tachymeter ring (for lack of a more proper description). With Oakley's Unobtainium wrist band the fit was very comfortable yet, like some reviews stated, they were in between holes so the fit was a bit loose. The looseness does allow a bit of airflow under it which helps during the summer months and during exercise when the sweat begins to poor. The band itself now shows little signs of wear with just a slight indentation where the metal buckle meets the band as well as numerous but slight scuff marks. It certainly seems to have significantly more life left in it with no signs of worrisome wear whatsoever.
The Holeshot watch itself is fairly heavy giving it a nice, solid feel. For any gram conscious cycling weanies this may not be the watch you want to take on those Sunday morning century rides (no offense to cyclist intended. I've ridden close to 100K myself). The brushed stainless steel smoothly rounded body contour looks sleek yet just beefy enough with the hex nut pin screw heads adding a contrasting and complementing mechanical look and feel. It's not overly flashy but it does get compliments. The finish does seem to be holding up quite well with only very minor scuffs, dings or scratches, mostly located around the bezel immediately surrounding the crystal. I imagine they could be buffed out by a competent jeweler if needed. In examining the rest of the watch body, there are literally no scuffs or scratches at all. I'm not easy on my watches but I'm not brutal either. This one goes with me cycling, skiing, sailing and to work (not a desk job either), but I do draw the line at rock climbing for this watch. For that the $25 Timex comes out. I was worried about the sapphire crystal getting scratches, but after numerous direct cringe-worthy shots on metal door frames and other hard objects there is not even a hint of damage to that crystal. It literally looks as good as the day it came out of the box! Hard as a rock that it is. It's antireflective coating works well but it does smudge little easily and it's a bit difficult to get those smudges off completely.
Mechanically this watch seems to be spot on. Out of the box the dials were not lined up exactly on the 12s or 0s, but the directions contain simple to follow instructions for setting them exactly on their mark. I'm very picky about the hands being exact as well. If I'm paying this kind of money for a watch, I want things to line up exactly as they should and be on the mark on each and every hash mark....and surprisingly they are! As for holding the correct time I am just as picky. I have read reviews of Omega watches costing several thousand $$ being off by several second a day to a few minutes each week. That's just unacceptable for that kind of money. So, I set my watch by UTC (universal coordinated time) via WWV radio (accessible by phone at 303.499.7111) and at the end of the week it was off by a mere 6 seconds. Awesome!! Better time keeping than an Omega at less than a tenth the cost. So that's a nice testament to the 4 jewel Swiss movement. Not so sure that it really is truly Swiss, but I haven't had the back of this watch off to know for sure. If it's keeping time this well I almost don't care where it's made.
If you look at the Oakley website and elsewhere on the internet, you'll find that you have a choice of several face/dial color combinations as well as some limited editions. There appear to be 2 or 3 different Unobtainium band colors too along with a metal band that I noticed on one special edition watch.
There is little that I don't like on this watch. However, the main stem used to adjust time, date, etc is very smooth and difficult to get a firm grasp when turning it especially when it's pulled half way out when trying to adjust the date. A bit of tree sap on the fingertips will help you out. Some buyers had a hard time figuring out how to adjust the hands to 12 or 0 and ended up sending it back a couple times when they could have read the directions. Even though we're guys we can figure out how to do that and save us some frustration and unnecessary shipping fees. Next, if you are into doing some serious timing you might be ok with this watch, but it won't recall split times and the dials are small and a bit difficult to read quickly. But you're really not getting this watch for serious timing. You're getting it because it's a great looking, solid watch that isn't going to set you back a ton of money. Now I've only had this watch for a year so I hope it lasts for a long time after giving it this long and stellar review.

Holeshot keeps going
I got the Holeshot as a gift in 2007. 6, almost 7 years later, it is still going strong. The watch itself is pretty distinctive, it will get noticed. It is fairly chunky, but with the unobtanium band, by far from the heaviest watch I own. It is very comfortable, and very rugged. I have worn this watch on a nearly daily basis (it's my go to watch) and other than battery replacements, it has never missed a beat. If, like me, you end up wearing out the band, good luck finding a replacement (apparently this is why it's called unobtanium....). That being said, this watch has survived many years with not a scratch, not a broken band pin, not a single drop of water inside the face. I have worn and trashed many other (cheaper) watches over the years, and can say that this watch will pay for itself over time.
Summary - eye catching watch stands up to abuse.
