RB 3386 FAKE?

Postby ssn1978 on Wed May 11, 2011 9:06 am

Hi, I bought RB 3386 004/71.
I have doubt that the sunglasses are fake. On the right temple its written Rayban T CE, left temple RB3386 004/71 67[]13 3N. The glasses are quite light in weight, Rayban is printed on right lens and RB is etched on the left lens under the hinge. When holding the sunglasses upside down, the engraving read right-side upside down. RB engraving in the right lens appears below the hinge. The seller didnt give authentication card. Please let me know if my glasses are fake.
Thank you

ssn1978 it certainly does not sound like these are fake at all. By you listing the sunglasses have all of this information on them makes them pretty convincing that they are real. Ray-Ban logos on the lenses is probably the number one thing that will convince us if they are fake or not. I would also maybe visit a local optician to make sure, we can spy out any fake frames :)

Nice choice in sunglasses also!

Hello, I have the same question and also the same informations on my ray ban and the only thing that bothers me is the "Ray ban T CE" on the right temple.
Is this normal? I checked on the internet and I only found the same ray ban with "ray ban made ​​in italy CE"

Hello,

I have seen the "Ray ban T CE" on the right temple arm of Ray-Ban Sunglasses before. However you may want to contact the retailer that you purchased them from. They should be able to comfort your suspicions in regards to forgeries. If you find they are fake you can always get the real thing from OpticsPlanet. We never sell fakes!

Guys i also bought one same model but it do not have anything etched on left lens.

on right temple, it says,
Ray.Ban Made in Italy CR Polarizes

On left temple, it says
RB3386 004/32 63#16

There is R.B logo under nose plastic.. And [link=http://www.opticsplanet.com/ray-ban-brand.html]Ray Ban[/link] P written on right lens...

Packing, warranty card and cleaning cloth looks original as they are very nice quality. [link=http://www.opticsplanet.com/rx-eyeglasses.html]Glasses[/link] are also of nice quality, but since this is my first [link=http://www.opticsplanet.com/ray-ban-brand.html]ray ban[/link] so i am not sure if its real or not.. I am able to find RB3386 on [link=http://www.opticsplanet.com/ray-ban-brand.html]ray ban[/link] site but not 004/32 mode. please advice.

Sometime Ray-Ban will exclude the etching due to the shape or design of the lenses. However the other markings seem to indicate authenticity.

I hope this helps.

i also have just bought mine now. seller clearly says that the products is 100 & 100% genuine
but when i reached home, i found some markers missing. like there is nothing written on the right temple where you will usually find the Rayban Made in Italy CE
on the left temple, its written RB3386 106/13 63-13 3N
Aure the Rayban logo is on the lenses & RB is present at the nose pads
what scared me the most is the bar tag mentioning "via valcozzena 10 Agordo (bl) made in china by luxottica tristar"
im almost certain that these are not authentic.
any insights?

Luxottica is the owner and manufacturer of Ray-Ban, they have factories in Italy and China. I think they are real.

My brand new Ray Ban also has a T CE in the right side temple bought from a high end optical shop and was puzzled because i thought that originals are all made in italy as usually printed. Googled and found this link:

http://reviews.ebay.com/Are-authentic-R ... 0020632354

So i presumed that my Ray Ban is authentic but made by Luxottica China Manufacturer Tristar, thus the T.

I bought my new polarized RB3379 for around 10,000 Pesos in an well known optical shop here in Cebu, Philippines.

Thanks for posting. Well done research. Luxottica is the real deal no matter if the factory is in China or Italy. Enjoy your sunglasses.
