    Hi all,

    last friday I bought a Deep Water Turbine, once home I found 2 very light cracks on the frame, on the left and right edges.

    I had the same problem with my VR46 Holbrook and although they've been replaced, the cracks were still there.

    Do someone of you encountered the same problem?

    Are they actually cracks on the frame? Because to my knowledge polished black frames on Holbrooks has two hairline lines on the left and right side of the frames below the rivets, and thats the result of how they manufacture those frames

    Yes, same as Holbrook, but I prefer to call them with their name: (small) cracks :(

    When I purchased forehands for my gf they had scratches on the stems near the icon. I think it is normal with the polished black frames.

    Thank you, I read a lot of this issue with polished black, my question is if it's possible in 2015 to sell new sunglasses that are already scratched :twitch:
    I thought that Holbrook was an unlucky frame/style, but no, it's the standard with the kind of frame finish... Bah :mad-35:

    Since the picture is not clear enough, I assume this time that it is what we call in plastic moulding as mold parting line marking, normal and inherent in the process.
