The authors introduce the notion of Ocone martingales as those martingales \(M\) whose Dubins-Schwarz representation as a time-changed Brownian motion \(M=\beta_{\langle M \rangle}\) features independent \(\beta\) and \(\langle M \rangle\). They provide a characterization of these martingales both in terms of Doléans-Dade exponentials and in terms of Girsanov transformations. It is shown that an Ocone martinagle enjoys the martingale representation property with respect to its natural filtration iff its bracket process \(\langle M \rangle\) is deterministic. Properties of martinagles with respect to the natural filtration of an Ocone martingale or its bracket process are derived. The Ocone martingales within a large class of stochastic integrals of Brownian motion are characterized. The paper closes with a number of examples of Ocone martingales and non-Ocone martingales.
