    Hi guys
    Would like some info on the 2 types of Ti02's
    What's rarer/ more sought after of the 2? And what lenses were in them originally? What colour of rubbers?
    Just managed to buy a set of juliets and have already got a set of XX that was supposed to be off to the X-man ages ago! :confused: Both are 1st generation serialised :)
    @THE X-MAN will be getting a few pairs soon to tune up the nose bridge and maybe a custom paint job ;)
    Thanks

    XX and Juliet is what he is referring to. Juliet Ti02 come up for sale less than the Ti02 XX.

    XX TiO2 had BI lenses.

    Juliet TiO2 had VR28 BI lenses.

    Juliet appears to be the rarer of the two, custom jobs notwithstanding.

    Also Multiple generations for the XX, serialized and non serialized the earlier generation XX tio2 are harder to come by in like new-mint condition due to discoloration on the plasma orbitals making perfect examples harder and rarer to find which usually commands a premium over teh smoother 2nd & 3rd gens. AFAIK juliet came only serialized maybe two generations with no significant differences besides having an A suffix on the SN.

    and the rubbers were black, came with 15/25 temple shocks and two size nosebombs as well

    Is the 1st gen Juliet Ti02 actually the 2nd/3rd Gen plasma finish ?

    Both mine are 1st gen but the Juliet looks more like a later generation.

    It's a lowish JT00#### Serial

    This is the second one that i've had and both were this same finish.

    here's a photo of the two together.
