Early vintage Serengeti 6249 G sunglasses feature a rare purple frame and Serengeti Vermillion 7000SS double gradient mirror lenses made by Corning Optics. In the early days of Serengeti sunglasses, lenses were made by Corning of Corning glass fame and a leading, global supplier of optical materials, high-performance precision optics, optical-based instruments, and technical microlithography solutions for the semiconductor industry. These purple Serengeti Vermilion sunglasses c 1980s are not today's Serengetis sold in discount stores but rather one of the classics of fine vintage sunglass design before they were acquired by Bushnell. The durable Serengeti 6249 purple graphite frame measures approximately 5.5" temple to temple, lightweight and designed for performance. Originally engineered for skiing, golf and water sports, the Serengeti Vermilion lens features double-gradient mirrors to block glare from the sun above and from snow, ice and water below. High-contrast rose-colored glass lets you experience the ultimate in image definition, and you'll see that these lenses also pick up plenty of rose hues out in the sunlight. The Vermillion 7000SS lenses measure approximately 2.25" x 1.675" at the widest points, and the exterior of each ear stem is subtly marked Serengeti. The inside of one ear stem is marked Serengeti Eyewear 6249G while the inside of the other stem is marked Corning Optics, part of the collection of a well known sports figure and customer of the Vintage Sunglasses Shop.
