A youVerify PHOTO GUIDE TO IDENTIFYING GENUINE RAY-BAN WAYFARER SUNGLASSES
1. RETAIL BOX
New Ray-Ban sunglasses are packaged in a branded retail box. Check for the print, color and image quality of the logo. Also check that the logo and font matches that of used officially by Ray-Ban. Be aware that genuine packaging can accompany counterfeit sunglasses.
2. RETAIL BOX LABEL
The retail box label details manufacturer information, barcode, model name, frame and lens description. Check that these details match the details of, and detailed on, the sunglasses themselves, and on any accompanying paperwork.
3. BRANDED CARRY CASE
Rayban Wayfarer glasses come in a black case with the Rayban logo written in gold font. The inside of the case is lined with felt.
4. BRANDED DUST CLOTH
A branded dust cloth comes with every pair of Ray-Bans. The bottom right hand corner should feature a red Ray-Ban logo followed by the registered trademark circled R.
5. INSIDE RIGHT TEMPLE ARM
The inside right temple arm of Ray-Ban sunglasses feature the style name followed by 'Made in Italy'. Also featured are the letters CE representing European Conformity. Check the letter font, alignment, spacing and positioning carefully.
6. INSIDE LEFT TEMPLE ARM
The inside left temple arm of Ray-Ban sunglasses feature the model number and sizing details. Again check for any errors in font size, spacing or alignment.
7. LEFT LENS ETCHED LOGO
New Ray-Ban sunglasses have a small 'RB' etched on the left lens just below the hinge. Compare the size and font carefully. The etching should be very clean. Pre 2000 models have the letters 'BL' etched for Bausch & Lomb who previously owned the company.
8. TEMPLE HINGE
The temple hinge is molded from a single piece of metal so there are no weld marks or joins. Pre 2010 the hinge has 7 fingers, post 2010 has 3.
