    1st gen has metal hinges that is the biggest difference. New lenses fit in the gen 1s

    Gen 1 has metal hinges as AtmosPlease? states, but additionally flat Classic logo, Gen 2 short post plastic hinge with raised Classic logo. The frame and lens combinations were the same for each generation spanning 03-050 to 03-081, but gen 2 continued with additional colourways from around 03-082 to 03-099, then the New Frogskins followed from 03-100 to 03-104.

    Thanks guys for the responses. I knew what the specs were I just wanted to hear it from someone elses mouth. so new gen lenses fit huh? That's awesome and saves me alot of trouble..I wanna keep the original lenses but they got some deep scratchs in two spots right in my direct vision ha..the VL replacement lenses would fit right?

    And the other thing that distinguishes them is the Japan text print inside on the right at the rounded end of the earstem.

    They would but only if your on a tight budget should you consider this option: even though they say they fit, due to the depth of the lenses on the VL ones, they WILL stretch the frame permanently and leaf you with over stretched orbits, not good for trying to fit genuine afterwards....
