    A classified ad triggered me to write this. This past weekend at a camping resort I went into the bar to grab a drink and there were a pair of Juliets sitting on the bar in front of another customer. I waited until he was done with his conversation and asked him if I could take a look at his glasses. He didn't mind and handed them to me and I noticed they had ruby red lenses. I also noticed the X### serial number and from reading the exchange thread now know this made them the first generation ruby lenses. I was amazed at how dark the lenses were compared to other I had seen. The glasses were pretty much trashed but it was cool to see the original lens in person. He was also pretty cool about showing me but I don't think he knew what he had.

    That's pretty cool. It's rare to see Juliets let alone 1st gen.
     
  3. That is pretty awesome bud! When I first got into the Juliet's I had a pair myself but like him, I had no idea they were worth any more than what I paid for them. In fact, before I joined this forum I didn't know anything Oakley was worth more down the road. I used to see the Tron and Hobbit stuff come out and think "who would want that stuff?" and now it's like WHOA, it's worth quite a bit!

    Anyways, thats awesome you saw a pair. I'm keeping my eye out, i'm not crazy about 'em but if I run across a pair I will probably pick them up. Cool story bro!

    I'm taking pics in the sun tomorrow to make them really pop. I might as well since I have broken the seal and know people know I have them.
