News and comment from the spectacle industry
Many people who own Oakley Juliet sunglasses have reported problems with the nose bridge getting loose and wobbly.
AlphaOmega Frame repairs have the low-cost solution for repairing loose Oakley Juliet frames and getting them back to you as good as new.
The expert staff at our sunglasses repair workshops have specialised equipment to replace internal components and rebuild the nose bridge so that it restores the original flex.
The AlphaOmega technique ensures that the restores Oakley Juliet frames fit more comfortably on the face.
Some buyers of these iconic Oakley frames quickly reported problems with the bridge piece which seemed to wobble instead of flex.
The problem centres around the flex coupler and the rubber bush inserts that could perish over time.
Many owners fail to spot the problem until long after the warranty expired and this led to them persisting with 'wobbly' Juliets or paying for expensive repairs.
The problem is that Oakley Juliet frames are manufactured individually, so every structure is different, even though they look the same.
Now AlphaOmega can offer to repair any Juliet frame for just £40 (including postage) and give the bridge back its original flex.
Instead of the loose, wobbly feel that can afflict Juliets over time, the nose bridge will once again be solid but flexible.
Your Oakley Juliets will also get an ultrasonic clean that thorough check so you can be sure your restored collectors' frames are as good as new.
There are reports on the internet of Juliet owners trying to fix the wobbly bridge problem themselves with some even chopping up rubber fan belts to wedge into gaps in the X bridge.
The most significant problem in repairing X Metal frames in this way is that they lose their elastic properties and, although they may not wobble anymore, they sit rigidly on the face and far less comfortable to wear.
DIY repairs on these iconic sunglasses are not something we would recommend. Oakley Juliets are precision engineered products as seen in the on-page video (right) produced by Oakley detailing all the work that goes into their manufacture.
Another reason not to tackle repairs yourself the subtle sizing difference between various years and models that can make correct fit and pin alignment a challenging task.
Oakley Juliet frames are difficult to take apart and to reassemble. The pins need a clear path of travel for proper alignment and must fit snugly into the bridge cavity to provide the excellent shock absorption that the Oakley flex coupler system offers.
AlphaOmega can carry out a full nose bridge rebuild and repair on the Oakley X Metal frame including disassembling, cleaning, installing pins, flex couplers and orbital gaskets for all Oakley X Metal Juliet, XX, Penny and X-Squared sunglasses frames.
Using specially designed tools and experienced staff, AlphaOmega can offer repairs that are not just safe but are guaranteed not to damage or permanently alter your Oakley sunglasses frame.
X Metal Juliet sunglasses are one of Oakley's best selling models with a 25-piece metal frame that has an unbelievable strength to weight ratio and is sculpted to fit the face thanks to their flexible frame temple shocks, the interchangeable nose bombs, the contoured lens orbitals and other Oakley innovations.
