Original ray ban wayfarer engraving of the RB on the inside?

Postby senser on Tue Jul 05, 2011 12:42 pm

.Hello!

I bought a Wayfarer 2140 50mm, tortoise this saturday. They are great. But as everyone I am looking to see if it's a real one :D . Bought it in a good optical shop, but still... There was no booklet with my cleaning clooth!! Is this a problem, or could this happen? The glasses have the 7 knuckles on the hinge, the sticker was good...
But now I have a question abouth the engraving. I also have a cockpit 3362, and the RB engraving is on the outside of my sunglasses. Were as now the engraving is on the inside...

Is this only with the original wayfarers?? Or should this never be the case???

Thanks!!

Hello,

Thank you for the post. The absence of the book is not a good indicator of authenticity. It may have fallen out at some point between the distribution and your purchase. However, the 7 knuckles on the hinge and the stickers are!

In regards to the RB etching, Ray-Ban will put it on the inside or outside of the lens depending on the model and the lens sizing. If you have the RB etching inside or outside of the lenses you have nothing to worry about. If there is no etching you may need to contact the retailer.

I hope this helps.

Yeah I know it's strange, the booklet seems like the only thing. I purchased it in a physical optical shop here in Belgium, a good one. And also the didn't give th ebox, but I think that they throw them away maybe..

I have the tortoise original wayfarer 2140.

Just inside the cleaning cloth plastic there wasn't this booklet... The case is brown, with black inside, the button has ray ban engraved, the glasses had the good sticker, the engraving of the Rb on the inside. Also the legs have the metal inside... I saw some video on youtube that this is something to see if it's real or not. Next time when I'm in the city I'm just gonna ask for the booklet.

Good Idea, get that booklet, this will be helpful for warranty issues. From your excellent description I strongly feel that you have a genuine pair of Ray-Bans!
