Persol Ratti 649 3 Yellow Tortoise Shell Sunglasses
1 Vintage Persol 649 3 sunglasses feature one of the most distinctively colored frames of all vintage Persols, a color explosion in yellow tortoise shell that forms the perfect complement to the brown mineral glass lenses. The color of this frame is just really amazing, with myriad color hues that blend perfectly together and are one of the rarest variations of iconic Persol Ratti 649 sunglasses. These Persol Ratti 649 3 sunglasses were produced in Persol's Ratti manufactury reserved for their highest quality production and feature the Meflecto system unique to vintage Persol sunglasses. The Persol Meflecto system system consists of tiny cylinders inserted by a craftsman process into the ear stems to render them flexible, thereby assuring maximum comfort and snugness of fit. Persol marketing literature from the period notes that the Meflecto system offers "excellent functionality and perfect fitting to the wearer's face" along with a "smart design and exceptional solidity of construction". The unisex Persol 649 frame measures approximately 5.675" temple to temple, and the lenses measure approximately 2.0" x 1.75" at the widest points with both lenses laser etched with the round Persol mark at the upper outside corners. You'll find the trademark Persol silver arrow hinges on the exterior of both ear stems, and the inside of one stem is marked 137 52 Ratti Made in Italy while the inside of the other stem is marked Persol 649/3 54 [] 20.
