Vuarnet 002 Skilynx Olympics Commemorative Sunglasses

Vintage Vuarnet 002 PX SKilynx sunglasses feature Vuarnet PX-4000 Skilynx lenses which are a perfect complement to the etched copper French nylon frame, a distinctive variation of the 002 commemorating their sponsorship of the 1984 Olympic Games. There are several unique things about these early Vuarnet PX Pouilloux sunglasses - the copper color, the ridges above the lenses and the nose bridge not usually seen on Vuarnets of this period, and the raised PX logos on each ear stem along with the repeating star symbol of the 1984 Los Angeles Summer Olympics of which Vuarnet was a sponsor. When this cool frame c 1983-1984 is combined with the Vuarnet double gradient mirror Skilynx lenses, you have a really wonderful and unique pair of vintage sunglasses. The Vuarnet Skilynx lenses feature the gradient density mirrored front, but on the rear of the lens you'll find the patented Vuarnet blue blocker coating that provides some of the best UV protection in the world. It's a good unisex size with frame measuring approximately 5.25" temple to temple and Skilynx lenses measuring approximately 2.25" x 1.875 at the widest points. One ear stem is marked PX in raised letters and the repeating star Olympic symbol, and the other stem is marked PX Vuarnet. The inside of one stem is marked France, and both lenses have the trademark etched Vuarnet V on a Ski. Great look, part of a major consignment of vintage eyewear exclusive to the Vintage Sunglasses Shop.
