Vintage Ray-Ban 62mm gold aviator sunglasses with traditional paddle ear stems are an iconic classic in vintage sunglass design and have stood the test of time. Bausch & Lomb created aviator sunglasses and anti-glare G-15 lenses like these in response to a need in the US military for high optical quality sunglasses that could protect pilots and others in the armed forces from the dangerous effects of glare. Subsequently marketed to the general public in the early 1950s, both 58mm and 62mm aviators became wildly popular. These B&L Ray-Ban 62mm aviator sunglasses were manufactured early in their production c 1960s - mid 1970s, with frame measuring approximately 150mm temple to temple and 62mm lenses measuring approximately 62mm x 55mm at the widest points and pre-dating the laser etching of the Ray-Ban logo in italics on the lenses. The top of the nose bridge is impressed B&L Ray-Ban USA while the bottom of the nose bridge is impressed B&L 62  14 USA.
Ray-Ban invented the pilot glasses and the Wayfarer-design. Countless movies have made Ray-Ban sunglasses like the “Wayfarer” immortal. The US brand sponsors selected sports events with special editions of its classic sunglasses. Our stock of glasses only includes the old Ray-Ban originals from Bausch & Lomb, USA.
