Persol 58230 Patent Sunglasses
1 Vintage Persol 58230 Patent sunglasses are one of the most eye catching styles ever produced by Persol, at their core the iconic Persol 58230 sunglasses made famous by Arnold Schwarzenegger in the movie Terminator 2 but here you get the amazing and intricately realistic snakeskin pattern that graces the top and both ear stems of this top of the line variation. The subtle wrap shape of the frame allows it to contour more closely to the face, creating a unique look but also providing extra protection from wind and glare from the sides. These Persol Ratti 58230 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 2 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 Ratti 58230 frame measures approximately 5.5" temple to temple, and the Persol mineral glass lenses measure approximately 2.375" x 1.375" at the widest points with both lenses laser etched with the round Persol mark at the upper outside corners. You'll find the metal pins from the Persol "Meflecto" system in both ear stems that gives them unparalleled flexibility and comfort, and the inside of one stem is marked Persol Meflecto Ratti and impressed 58230 Patent. Rare.
