Carrera Porsche Design 5621 71 Silver Blue Gradient Sunglasses

Vintage Carrera Porsche Design 5621 71 sunglasses feature a titanium silver frame and 2 sets of interchangeable Porsche Design lenses which include one of the hardest to find of colors - blue gradient. The center hinge in the titanium silver frame raises to allow one set of lenses to be removed from the prongs and the replacement set of lenses inserted into small prongs on the frame. Then, the hinge clamps down to hold the lenses secure. These early Carrera 5621 sunglasses were the first to incorporate large optyl lenses, a material far lighter than glass lenses but yet offering superior optical qualities and UV protection. The Austrian Porsche Carrera 5621 frame measures approximately 5.5" temple to temple with teardrop aviator shaped lenses measuring approximately 2.875" x 2.25" at the widest points. The second set of lenses are either gray or brown gradient to complement the blue gradient and are stored in a felt pouch inside the black Carrera Porsche Design hard sided case which is included. The inside of one ear stem is marked Porsche Design by Carrera with the US patent number on the ear pad, and the other stem is marked with the serial number, Made in Austria 5621 71. There are plenty of fake Carrera PD sunglasses and lenses on the market, so don't be fooled by fakes; every pair of vintage sunglasses we sell is fully vetted for period authenticity and that they meet our stringent standards. Part of the collection of a well known sports figure, the last pair of these we sold were purchased by husband and wife who each claimed their own lens color and shared the 5621's between them.
