    Hi everyone, just wanted to get the collectives opinion about pricing for these sunglasses.

    Assuming the lenses and frames are good but no box and coin. How much would a pair be worth with Ruby lenses. Is £400 ($600) reasonable. I feel this is quite high, but that may be just me.

    Using this as my reference point:
    http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/OAKLEY-JU...916088?hash=item1a0854aa78:g:fhkAAOSwl9BWMTiF

    If the whole set is complete with box/coin how much?

    I am interested because I really want a pair but they seem to command relatively high price and not sure if this is due to rarity.

    That's a BAD reference point to use.

    The price for only the sunglasses is way too high in my opinion.

    It's not a R1

    Just to give an idea of what you can get, I recently got an unworn pair of X Metal Juliets with Ruby Iridium lenses and full box and coin for $450, so I would say that $600 is a bit steep. Even with shipping from the U.S. It came to way less than $600.

    For some reason there's all of a sudden a strong demand for Juliet XM. I sold 3 of them in the past couple of weeks, all on eBay, and at higher prices than I thought they would go for. Most specifically SKU 24-125, and sold both pairs above $300 withing minutes or hours of starting the auctions to my surprise. The other pair was a serialized J frame which sold for $250. All of these were for the pairs only, no box/coin. One of those buyers of an SKU pair, matched it up with a box & coin and flipped it for over $500, and the frame was new, but one of the lenses had a scratch.

    Your subject pair are WAAY too high.
    These appear to have aftermarket lenses (ruby did not come polarized) or the seller is misstating OEM lenses- which is possible given his high pricing which could indicate a lack of product knowledge.
    At any rate they should be in the $300 range loose w/o box IMO.

    Thanks everyone, you are confirming everything that I thought.

    @MSTech you also raise what I am seeing there seems to be an increased demand in this model.

    I will just have to wait and see what comes up at the right price point.

    Everything goes in waves is what I have noticed. Complete X-Metal/Ruby (SKU 24-125) were selling like wild fire at $550.00 + last year but only fetching $425.00-$450.00 right now.

    Correct. For a while Ti02 Juliets were the rage, then they weren't. For a while Titanium/Gold Juliets were until they weren't. For a while Ducati Juliets were until they weren't.
    Ebb and flow.

    X-metal is a really great finish. Was under-represented in my collection for quite a time but I sorted that and now have 10 or 11.

    It's what I've been using for most of the customs (lenses, not finishes) but typically BI pairs so I don't have to pay the premium rubies can attract.
