Is there any indication that these glasses or their lenses are not authentic? Recently sold them on the bay and the buyer claims they’re not authentic lenses but the frames are. He also claimed this model only came with polarized lenses which I disproved easily by referring to O-Review. However I can’t find any definitive guide on how to tell if the lenses are authentic or replacements.
Either way, I told the guy I’d accept a return even though the listing had no returns. The jerk left negative feedback already, so just wanting to know for future reference and for when I talk to Ebay CS.

Hate to say it but make sure you inspect your lenses when you get it back, in case he tried to pull a switcheroo on you.

If the buyer claims to be knowledgeable about Oakley glasses (to the point that he can identify incorrect lenses in Oakley glasses) but then won't believe the info on O Review, then I'm not sure what you can do. Is he claiming the lens is a fake +Red or that it is the incorrect color altogether? Oakley 12-781 is pretty clearly a Titanium Pewter Whisker with +Red lenses. If you google "Oakley 12-781," the first 8 or so responses are other online sales of this exact colorway. There's also this closed sale on eBay of a seller (who extensively sells Oakley glasses) who sold 25 BNIB units of Oakley 12-781, and the photos are a dead match of your glasses: NEW OAKLEY - Titanium Ti Whisker - Sunglasses Pewter Frame/ +Red Iridium, 12-781 | eBay .

There's also the possibility the buyer just got buyer's remorse and is making up reasons to get out of the deal.

thanks for the input so far!

He’s claiming the reason the lenses are aftermarket is they don’t fit as snugly on the frame as a pair he references, that they’re edges are angled too much...
is this a legitimate indicator of lens authenticity? Or just an attempt to force a return on a no return sale?

Oakley changed the bevel cuts on wire lenses during the whisker run. Prob why he’s saying they don’t look right.

So from what you can see in the provided pictures, there are no indications that these lenses aren't original to these frames?

I don't know what that means, sorry. From all the pictures I've seen online of the same style I didn't see anything that hinted at replacement lenses. I did not purchase this pair new so I don't know their history.

Hi everyone!!

I need some advice on the following.... my knowledge on shield/m frames is lacking....

I have come across this in my search for an rx m frame

Can the forum please advise whether this is legit or fake?

I think its new/old stock of the m frames when they had rx frames...the oakley software logo is definately old school ..but that's all I can ascertain from the pics....

Your input will be highly appreciated :)

Thank you
