    I have owned a pair of x metal Romeos 1s since 1997! They are in immaculate condition but had the lenses recently replaced. I have the original box, coin, rubbers, paperwork etc. My dilemma is that as Romeos are rare they will fetch a few quid and I could reinvest that money into buying 2 or 3 pairs of different Oakleys? Keep or sell!! Help please??!!??

    I'd say the answer would be based on the level of your personal attachment to the Romeos. If they have a lot of sentimental value, keep 'em. If you'd rather move on to something new, sell 'em.

    Good advice, but where do you move too from Romeos, what's comparable ? Don't want to sell and regret it !

    If you wear the romeo's and enjoy the fit and look I would keep them. They will become harder to get if you sell them. If you are not in to collecting and don't like the fit and look then I would sell them.

    With box (matched serial) and coin, but no original lenses, I'd say $500-600 from what I've seen.

    When you say matched serial you mean the number on the bridge of the glasses ??

    He means the serial number on the nosebridge of the glasses matching the serial number on the box.
