    Hi!

    I found this nice X-Metal XX on ebay, but I don't really know what does XX stands for.
    These glasses aren't the same models as Juliets, so Juliet lenses won't fit in them, or I can go for it.

    Seller says it isn't new, so has got some wears, and the nose bridge is loose.
    Now I don't know how much would be the max to bid for glasses like these...

    Thanks!

    Having not really looked at the XX what made those stand out as fakes? On my phone so hard to get a good look at the pics.

    Really?

    Thanks!

    How could you recognise them? I had a polsihed Juliet for 10 years, and I thought I can spot on easily at least the X-Metal fakes, now I got scared of buying from ebay...

    Thanks!

    A. The orbital joint is at an angle
    B. The earstem tips bend out
    C. They never made a polarized XX
    D. There is no orbital gasket
    E. There was no XX made with a SKU on the arm
    F. The sheen of the nosepiece looks odd
    G. The flex coupler rivets are spaced very wide

    The juliet actually looks legit. I still would not purchase though, and the C wire isn't my field.

    After further review of the XM/Ruby Juliet I agree with you.
