1 Vintage Vuarnet Skilynx black glacier glasses, featured in the James Bond film Spectre, are one of the rarest designs produced during the golden years of Vuarnet sunglasses c 1980s, and they feature black leather side blinkers that rotate inward to permit folding of the sunglasses while rotating outward when wearing to protect your eyes from wind, snow, rain, and glare coming in from the sides. Vuarnet PX-4000 Skilynx lenses have silver double gradient filters on the fronts to absorb glare and have anti-reflective coatings on the backs to eliminate irritating bounce back light . They provide 100% protection against harmful ultraviolet radiation and enhance depth of field perception, tempered to provide excellent scratch and impact resistance and vacuum treated with multi-layered coatings. The outdoorsman or "shooter" ear stems loop over the ears to keep them on your face in even the most extreme conditions for the more secure fit possible, and each leather side blinker also has an elasticized safety line that goes around your neck in the event of a bad fall. The French nylon frame is designed so as not to stick to your skin in extreme cold conditions the way a metal frame would, and it also provides great flexibility and durability for active sports sunglasses. The unisex Vuarnet 027 frame measures approximately 5.5" temple to temple, and the Vuarnet Skilynx double gradient mirror lenses measure approximately 2.25" x 1.75" at the widest points with each lens laser etched with the Vuarnet "V on a Ski". The inside of one ear stem is impressed Frame France along with the Vuarnet crown mark impressed in the frame and on some production one ear stem is marked 027 or 4027 (the 4 prefix was added in the early 1990s to indicate the Vuarnet Skilynx PX-4000 lens but they are exactly the same). The exterior of one ear stem is embossed PX Vuarnet while the exterior of the other stem is embossed PX, with PX indicating Vuarnet origins in Pouilloux, France.

2 In the 2 years leading up to Vuarnet's sponsorship of the 1984 Olympic Games in Los Angeles, Vuarnet added the repeating star symbol of the 1984 Summer Olympics to the embossed PX on one ear stem while the other stem is still embossed PX Vuarnet. They are otherwise identical in size, appearance, and marks.
