    Hi all,

    Searched the forum and googled it, but could not find an answer.

    I was wondering if the Square Wire T is a titanium frame of the Square Wire 3.0? Or is it a different model?

    Here is a picture of the right arm and frames

    That looks like 12-924 (which would be on the inside of the left arm?).
    If so, YEAH MAN, it's Ti.

    Searching for the SKU on the "o-review" website usually will find detailed information about that model of sunglasses.

    Yeah I did that...but did not help. I asked the seller for the SKU#, but he said there was none on the left arm so could not verify with O-Review.

    flyer, that's what I thought as well. But no SKU# on the left arm...I know that there are some frames that did not have them.

    One possibility to determine whether or not the frame is titanium is to test the metal directly. One test that the Mr. Titanium Forum suggests is trying to anodize the frame using a 9v battery to see if it changes color:

    If it's not possible to verify the SKU, I wouldn't trust it to be Oakley or Ti on the seller's say-so.
    There are tonnes of "Titanium" frames for sale that aren't.

    I remember reading somewhere on via the search bar that the sku for some square wires are under the rubber. Have the seller check there.

    You can tell right away if you're holding a titanium version of a frame or not. Very, very lightweight. BTW, If you need lenses for that Square Wire 3.0.. I have them! Several colors to choose from!
