Vintage Vuarnet 019 metal frame sunglasses are very different from most traditional Vuarnet nylon frame designs and, in our view, are every bit as unique and interesting. There are a number of subtle design elements on these vintage Vuarnets including the wide, banded frame that holds each Vuarnet PX-2000 lens and the unique narrowing of the ear stem at the hinge point only to expand thereafter and continue down to the ear pad. These design elements really stand out, and the silver looks great with the Vuarnet Pouilloux PX 2000 lenses. They appear amber from the front and provide the complete UVA and UVB protection for which Vuarnet mineral glass lenses are known. Roger Pouilloux and Jean Vuarnet created the first Vuarnet sunglasses in 1961, with optical quality lens offering unprecedented protection from the sun in leisure-oriented sports and adventure activities such as skiing. The Vuarnet logo and stylized P for Pouilloux are on the outside of each ear stem inscribed in the metal, and the inside of one ear stem is marked Pouilloux France CE and the other is marked 019 48  22 140 all inscribed in the metal frame. The nose pads are also original and are marked with the stylized PX Pouliooux trademark and both lenses are laser etched with the Vuarnet "V on a Ski", part of a San Francisco, CA collection of a well known film figure and long time customer of the Vintage Sunglasses Shop.
