Oakley Dual Use FMJ Watch

The Full Metal Jacket timepiece from Oakley offers quite a unique feature: it can be used as a wristwatch, or pocket watch.

Here's some more details about this timepiece...


From a lineage of design eloquence comes a new timepiece rendered in lightweight titanium. Crafted with rare aesthetics in the art of timekeeping, Full Metal Jacket™ is engineered with a removable module that can be mounted on a pocket watch chain, an attachment of definitive style honed from the same ultra premium metal. Classic meets contemporary in a work of sophistication that blends the precision of 25-jewel movement with the intricate mechanics of a self-winding mechanism.

Attenuated by an ETACHRON regulator, the heartbeat of this instrument is 28,800 vibrations per hour at a frequency of four hertz. Its chronograph shows measured time in sub-dials that display elapsed seconds, minutes and hours. Augmented with subtly dimensional reliefs, the uniquely styled dial face includes a date and day display. The elements of the sculptural bracelet are forged from titanium, and a mounting switch for the removable module highlights both the wristwatch mount and the included pocket watch case and chain. Enhanced by a pure sapphire crystal with anti-reflective coating, Full Metal Jacket™ is precision engineered to withstand water pressure equivalent to a depth of 330 feet (100m).
