    I have found recently a pair of juliets on an online store at a decent price. They have them listed as 004011 Juliet TitaniumVR28, and this was the pic on the store.

    Since they look to me as a plasma frame with fire or ruby lenses, I requested some pictures to the seller, and these are thepics he sent me :

    It seems like a Tio2 frame with VR28 lenses, but I thought that TiO2 frames were only available on XX frames.

    Do you know whether Juiets were available on this configuration?

    Looks dodgy sending you different photos plus the posted pic was for a plasma fire. Hmm. If the price is too good to be true, might as well keep out of it. Ask him if he can send you the actual photo of the article on stock.

    Yeah, pics 2 and 3 are not the same frame.
    Sounds shady to me.
    As salj838 said ask for pics of the exact pair you are looking to buy, I'd even ask for a pic of him wearing them.

    Many thanks,
    Yes, I also noticed that one of the pics seems to be from a plasma frame (and loos like it have a ding on the upper section) while the other seems to be from a Tio2 frame. I don't know whether they have picked up the pics from the net or what, anyways I have requested the to check what is the info on the boxl abel to be sure.

    Request some specific pictures just to get an idea. The serial should give you an idea, and some random pics should keep the seller honest and the buyer knowledgeable.

    Finally the seller answered that the right pics were "those of the dark nose bridge",which according to the box were Xmetal/Gold Iridum :twitch: , that the glasses had been sitting on a shelf since he entered working in the shop and that he was no expert in oakley and did not have any idea about the sku number I was asking for, but that since they were a deadstock/discontinued pair he was allowed to let them go for 175 including express shipping and paypal fees, and that of course I would have a 10 days full refundperiod in case I did not like them. So I purchased them, and this is what the mailman left at my doorstep this morning:

    According to the serial number they are a first gen TiO2, socertainly they have been at the shelf for a while
