Now don't get me wrong, I actually enjoy breaking down a Romeo frame and cleaning, putting it back together--bringing it back to life. But when I do it I never cease to be amazed by how these glasses are treated. Got my third frame today from Germany and broke them down to clean everything and get it ready for its new lenses....and this one had tons of sunblock residue in the nosepieces. And sand. And then there was sand in the orbital grooves BETWEEN the lenses and the orbitals. Parts fo the frame looked blackened....turns out it was just gunk. I know...once these were a dime a dozen when in production and "only" $275; I know the enthusiast crowd is a bit OCD. But still...really? SAND??
