Vuarnet 085 Skilynx Black Sunglasses

Vintage Vuarnet 085 and 4085 Skilynx sunglasses (the 4 prefix was added in later production to indicate Skilynx PX-4000 lenses but are identical in all ways) are one of the most recognizable pair of sunglasses ever made, featuring the incised Vuarnet V directly above the nose bridge and of course the amazing Vuarnet Skilynx double gradient mirrored lenses. The black French nylon frame has a subtle wrap design to give you added eye protection on the sides, and it's sturdy and designed to stand up to active outdoor pursuits. The Vuarnet Skilynx lens is a wonderful innovation in optical technology, providing a blue blocker inner coating combined with the gradient mirror external coating to give you advanced glare reduction even in the most extreme conditions.The durable black French frame is a nice size at approximately 5.375" temple to temple with Skilynx lenses measuring approximately 2.25" x 1.875" at the widest points and both laser etched with the trademark Vuarnet "V on a Ski" at the top center. These are early vintage Vuarnet PX Pouilloux Skilynx sunglasses, marked on the exterior of one ear stem with the PX and marked PX Vuarnet on the outside of the other stem. The inside of one ear stem is impressed Pouilloux, and the inside of the other stem is marked either 085 or 4085 along with an impressed France and the crown mark, a very hard to find style c 1980s - early 1990s.
