    Hello all,

    I'm curious about a value for a Polished XX that I'm looking to purchase and couldn't find anything on this forum about them. My best guess is that they are a custom piece with no serial. Frame and lenses look to be in good condition, I'm just curious what I should offer for them. Any help you guys can give would be greatly appreciated. Polished XX value - image.jpg

    It'd be a custom piece unless Oakley made a special edition for someone special

    As for its value i'd value it as a normal pair of XX in similar condition (lenses, rubbers, bridge tightness) + cost of refinishing. A good polished job is worth the money; i've seen some bodge jobs out on ebay when the polished frames look like crap and they ask for the sky....

    As far as I know, Oakley never made a polished version of the XX. Are you sure it's not a Juliet that is being described mistakenly as an XX?

    It's an XX for sure. As I said before, I'm pretty sure it's a custom job, just don't know what I should look at spending for them.

    I guess it would depend on how good of a custom job they did on refinishing them to a polished finish. Also need to consider what kind of lenses are coming with it. Polar vs. regular. Any scratches on the lenses. What shape is the rubber and nosebridge in? Does it come with box and coin or just the glasses? If all is good then I would probably expect to pay normal price for a similar shape XX in another finish. I don't think the polished finish would really add or subtract from the value.

    How do you know? That one pic you posted isn't definitive. Need some good pics of the orbital breaks / gaskets.
