Question about Ray-Ban Ray Ban Aviator Sunglasses Metal Frame And Glass Lenses Unisex

2 Answers

How do you find out if Rayban Aviator are genuine or false? I have a couple of tips, but I wanted to know if there was some extra thing to check. Please do not tell me any obvious stuff like "go to the shop" I am a collector and I know all basic stuff already.

These are the markings to check for.

Older Models made by Baush and Loma.

-Ray Ban B&L Made in the USA across the top part of the upper bridge.

-Size Markings on the paddles. (Only if they were not changed out, and are not the wrap around ear frames)

-Ray Ban white logo on the Right eye Lens. (Left if you are looking at the glasses) this should not come off easily like, with a cleaning cloth.

-B&L etched in the lenses, many knockoffs will have it painted.

-B&L engraved in the nose guards

Further information needed

Newer Ray Ban's made by Luxottica

-All newer Ray Ban's sold in the U.S.A will be made in Italy.

-Ray Ban Made in Italy under the top bridge

-Made in Ray Ban made in Italy CE on the inside right leg.

-Correct size and model info on the left inside leg.

-R&B etched in the lenses.

-Ray-Ban painted white on the Right Lens (Again won't come off easily)


Applies to both

-Should not have a mix of the above features....common mistake (Example made in USA across the bridge and made in Italy on the leg.)

-If painted, it should be enamel and should not come off easily.

-Hinges should have a distinct shape, not oval, and should not have any "burn" marks on the metal from being fused.

-The paperwork..sometimes called care book. (not the registration card) should be crisp with a professional work. Common fakes are printed with regular or shiny paper, haphazardly folded, sometimes colors will be bleeding, and or the English is full of typos.

-Mispelled words on the protective case if it has one. This should also match with the glasses. Luxottica with Italy made and Baush and Loma with U.S.A.

-Box is beat up or has Asian characters.

-Hinges should move smoothly but should not be loose. (Older/Used may require tightening.)

-Plastic lenses. An easy way to test this is to direct the car A.C. air at the lenses. Glass lenses will cool rather easily will feel cooler to the touch than plastic.

-Have them checked at a local sunglasses place, UV can be tested too. Many cheap priced sunglasses misrepresent the amount of UV that is blocked. Ray Ban's have a good reputation of Blocking that 99-100%

    I know all that stuff JY.

    That does not work. Good replicas have all that.

    What I need is the specific weights per series and sizes. There are also specific difference. For example replicas have BL and all the marks, but those do not match with the ones used in that year or in that product. There is more stuff like this.

    That is what I was looking for.

    Take care.

I took my 04 Lincoln Aviator through the car wash. Now the powered seats, mirrors wont work. I have only had the car for a couple of days. Can someone tell me what the problem might be? Chris

They are on the the same fuse and relay system. One or the other have gone out. Look in the owners manual and look under fuse and relay. It will list which fuses are what, and will also with the relays. It will also tell you where they are. check these first, and let me know if that's not it. Will help you more from there then. hope this helps
