What condition are these Romeos?

Picked these up.
Looking for advise on condition description.
I sell sunglasses here and there, for me I would normally just describe these as “Used, shows signs of use. (See pictures).”

My guess is that description might cut it among X-metal collectors.
Given how old they are they might be considered good condition or alternatively just only good for parts and spares, it’s a market I don’t know.

Lenses have cracks to them. Should I replace these with aftermarket?

Any help you can offer would be great.

I think they are Gen 1 Romeos w/ Black Iridium lenses.

Did it come with matching box? Maybe it’s the pics but the serial looks different.

Yeah, I think it came with the original box.

Maybe it’s just the angle/lighting of the serial number picture.

Ok, do you want to sell it and need to know what they are worth?

Romeo 1 full set are in high demand.
But It needs a lot of TLC.
Rubber, Lenses and Frame repair.
All Rubber OEM is $60-80,-
Lenses OEM custom cuts $80,-
Frame repair 50,-
Everything but OEM is Blasphemie.

If you want to sell as is fast 600-700USD all in would be a price to ask.

Linegear gasket kit & some Linegear lenses or Custom cuts by @Chris A Hardaway & you have a decent pair of sought after Vintage O, With matching box as a bonus. Is it me or do X metal ones tend to preserve better than Titanium?
Thanks for the info, much appreciated, will check out Linegear for the upgrades.

Appreciate all the info.

I will look into all the OEM parts and think about restoring them.

I haven’t put them up for sale as yet, just trying to get as much info as possible on them before deciding what to do.
Thanks for the price guide.
