Ray-Ban Dekko Tortoise Shell RB 50 Sunglasses
1 Vintage Ray-Ban Dekko sunglasses are a rare, low production variation of iconic B&L Ray-Ban Wayfarer sunglasses, but here the real stars of the show are the very hard to find Bausch & Lomb RB-50 mirrored lenses. Vintage Ray-Ban RB-50 lenses are one of the finest, most advanced lenses you can buy. It's a unique general purpose specialty lens for moderate to extreme glare conditions with light absorption ranging from 80% to 90% but extending to 95% under cold, bright conditions to make it excellent for skiing and other high glare snow sports. RB-50 features include "100% ultraviolet protection comfort zoned for moderate to bright glare with an absorption" and an ability to "filter out scattered blue light to enhance contrast and sharpen details with true color recognition. The exclusive, anti-reflective coating on vintage RB 50 lenses reduces back glare and sunburn problems associated with traditional mirrored lenses.You'll see design characteristics in the Dekko that you also see in vintage Ray-Ban Onyx sunglasses, including the angular front frame and the thicker than normal ear stems. It's an enduringly popular style that it's very hard to find today, and you'll probably recognize the Dekko style from TV productions such as AMC's Mad Men television series. The unisex Ray-Ban Dekko frame measures approximately 5.25" temple to temple, and the RB-50 lenses measure approximately 2.0" x 1.5" at the widest points with both lenses laser etched BL near the hinges. You'll find the Ray-Ban logo in raised metal relief on the exterior of both ear stems, and the inside of one stem is impressed B&L Ray-Ban USA while the inside of the other stem is impressed Dekko.
